About Me

Hello there. My name is Wendy Weston, and I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Alaska since 2012. I graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and got my Masters degree at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Let me tell you a little about my background.

Since 1999, it has been my privilege to assist families of all ethnic and social backgrounds in various situations. As a military family member myself, I understand the unique issues service members and their families face.

The relationship between therapist and client is essential. The more comfortable you are with your counselor, the more effective the counseling, which is why my approach is client-centered and solution-focused, meaning you decide what you want from counseling then we work together to reach that goal(s).

Sometimes, life’s challenges can seem overwhelming, taking away our confidence in our own abilities. It’s often helpful to have someone outside your life listen to your personal truths without placing judgment. Together, we will identify and use your strengths while adding new coping skills to meet your needs.

I’m excited to get to know you and begin working together.

She's great! Very helpful listening to your story and assessing what it is that may be the root of the issues you are working at overcoming.

Wendy hasn't wasted any time in getting to the heart of my issues. She provides “homework” for me to look deeper into myself and do some work for myself, which is much needed! She is kind and compassionate and sensitive to the importance of my faith. She truly is a God send!!
