About me

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!

Wendy is my second therapist with BetterHelp. I like her because she encourages me to do better but also she tells me when I am wrong.

My therapist is great

Written on Jul 05, 2022 after therapy with Wendy for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, anger management, and coaching

She listens... like, really LISTENS. She also offers suggestions along the way, which let's me know she's listening and processing. We're getting further into sessions, so she's beginning to ask the uncomfortable questions and making me THINK, something I'm not a fan of. It's like avoiding the essay questions on a test, and seeing that multiple choice questions are easier, that's what I LOVE about them.

I enjoyed all of my sessions with Wendy. I was comfortable speaking with her and she was attentive to all that I had to say. For me, the worksheets she provided were excellent, providing skills and tools that I have and will continue to use daily.

If you have a bag full of “stuff” you’d like to release yourself from, Wendy is a top shelf load-lightener. Do yourself and those who care about you a favor by scheduling a consult with Wendy. Life is too short not to … JusSayin
