Everyone has periods in their life when they need professional help and I view therapy as an aspect of maintaining good health. Through my personal experience and in my practice, I focus on integration, skills training, and a strengths-based approach toward healthy living. When clients enter therapy, many are ambivalent about their goals, feel uninspired, unfulfilled or are facing a life crisis. I provide therapeutic support and creative processes to promote overall health and wellbeing, helping clients resolve their concerns and learn meaningful, easy to implement skills toward creating lasting happiness in their lives. This is an invitation for support as you deeply commit to yourself toward living your dreams. I offer challenging exercises, motivation and support as you discover a more fulfilling, engaged, joyful purpose in life.
I am licensed in Illinois with 10 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & career difficulties. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy takes courage and you should feel proud for getting started!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Wendy Schultz. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Wendy has been vital in helping me overcome the self-doubt, depression, and anxiety I was feeling. She has provided helpful tools and her knowledge to help me see different perspectives about myself.

Amazing!!! Never had a good experience with counseling until now. She's more than a counselor....felt like a friend. Easy to open up to and felt genuinely cared for.

Wendy is a great fit! She will check in with you in between sessions and find exercises to work on between meetings that coincide with what issues you have brought up. Her sense of humor and understanding nature makes her a great choice. I hope to be back on BetterHelp one day :)

Wendy has been an integral part of the positive changes that I have been making in my life over the past 4 months and I am so grateful for her and the connection we have. I trust her and recommend her to anyone that would benefit from transparency, clarity and a caring heart.
