seeing clients heal from past pain and grow into the very best version of themselves!
As a colleague of Wendy, I appreciate her knowledge and skill in working with clients struggling with eating disorders and college age students specifically. She is a great match for these populations!
I have known Wendy professionally for a number of years now and appreciate her down-to-earth demeanor and clinical knowledge and expertise. I would recommend Wendy to anyone looking for a therapist with clinical skill and relational warmth.
I refer to Wendy all the time with full confidence that her clients will be given excellent ethical treatment. She is warm, responsive, and really knows her stuff!
I have a 90 minute assessment session where we will fill out paperwork, talk about the structure and purpose of therapy, talk about your goals, treatment planning, and make sure it is a good fit.
We will then meet for hourly sessions usually once a week unless we work something else out that better fits your needs.
I have been practicing therapy for 9 years now but have spent over
15 years with youth/families in various settings: ministry, education, coaching, leadership development, and nonprofit work in TX, Central America, and California, where I received my MFT masters degree at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena. I then worked inboth secular and Christian nonprofit community mental health centers.
I am a certified therapist in
TFCBT: Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Mostly from doing youth monistry. I loved working at summer camps, working with students in ministry, teaching in the education system, coaching soccer and swimming, leadership development, and nonprofit work. I love seieng people grow. I have a gift for communication and challenging people to be their best selves.
I just got married in May! It was such a joyful day of commitment and character and celebration. It was also a day to be loved and supported by our community!
Meet them in person and make sure you feel safe and comfortable and someone you respect and feel you can grow from being in a client/therpist relationship with them.
What issues do you work with? And is my issue within your area of expertise or scope of practice?
Can I afford your prices?
