Wendy has worked with men and women from varying ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, and those with alternate lifestyles and various spiritual practices. She also has a great deal of treatment experience with alcohol & drug, gambling and other addictions.

Wendy completed a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Great Falls with an emphasis in Alcohol & Drug counseling. Her own success in battling addiction and family mental health problems spurred her to redirect her career to work with those who suffer from addiction. During this time, her experience working in a 28-day in-patient program shed light on the co-occurrence of mental health problems and addiction and--noticing the injustice in much needed services and marginal treatment gaps-- her passion grew toward seeking further education.
