About me

I am a family and marital therapist and a Licensed Professional Counselor in South Carolina with over 10 years of experience in working with children, adolescents, and their families in South Carolina. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, marital issues, couple issues, adjustment difficulties, bullying, preparing for college difficulties, sibling rivalry, parenting-child issues, parental distress issues, single parenting difficulties, boundary setting, nurturing skills, blended family issues, adoption/fostering issues, coping difficulties, grief/loss difficulties, and anger management issues, ADHD, Personality Disorders, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse and physical abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, narrative therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, self-care techniques, mindfulness therapy, dialectal therapy, solution-focus therapy, distress tolerance skills, and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I work with teens in developing independent living skills, problem-solving skills in school and/or college settings, time-management skill building for schoolwork/work/college, and taking time for self-care daily to reset their mind and body. I assist teens in managing their emotions, feelings, and frustrations, while developing communication skills with peers and family members.

My mission is to assist clients in Reaffirming, Restoring, and Reconnecting relationships by working with and helping individuals to create the lives they want and deserve in a meaningful and responsible manner. I empower my clients to change their circumstances regardless of those circumstances. I believe that every person deserves a second chance to create change and be a part of the process that results in a better him or her. My Motto: "Embracing Life Responsibly"

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Wendy is compassionate, straightforward, relatable, and very respectful of other customs. Her sessions feel solution-focused and important.

I am so glad we found Wendy online at teen counseling. She has been a great support to me as well as to our son. She 'gets' teens, and my son seemed happier after talking with her.

Even with our first session I feel very comfortable with Wendy and I believe she understands my needs and what I want to rectify and clarify in my life.
She is very attentive, informative and compassionate. I felt heard and that means a lot for someone who struggles with that.

Mrs. Wendy is a kind, well-rounded, compassionate therapist. She is able to apply a variety of life experiences, techniques, and strategies within her practice to support and facilitate her client’s healing and growth. She is honest and this no-nonsense/direct approach to the therapeutic relationship is something I personally value and greatly appreciate! She has a high standard and expects you to actively do the work outside of the weekly session, yet is walking beside you with grace, awareness, and ability to hold safe space as you wrestle through that hard work. She has been a wonderful advocate, cheerleader, and support as I’ve worked through old trauma and new. I highly recommend her.
