Wendy’s career has been about helping people: as a school teacher, yoga, mindfulness, and
meditation instructor as well as an active community member. Now as a therapist, she continues
her guiding principle of “respecting the spirit in each individual.” Her work is holistic in nature,
supporting the mind, emotions, and body of her clients as a whole. Combining her GVSU
Master of Social Work degree with her years of other professional experiences, Wendy provides
a unique person-centered approach for her clients on their path and meets them where they are
at in their lives.

In her practice Wendy uses somatics, mindfulness, yoga, self-compassion practices and similar
modalities such as experiencing nature for overall wellness in individuals and relationship
concerns. She provides trauma-informed care, and specializes in women’s issues, anxiety and
depression, life transitions, and interpersonal relationships. She works with individuals of all
ages, including those who have family histories of addiction and substance use disorders. Additionally, she has a deep interest in end of life issues, grief and loss. Given her years as a teacher,
she still enjoys working with children, adolescents, along with providing parental and family

Life can be challenging at times. Wendy feels honored to help provide a safe and healing
environment for individuals and families, collaborating with them to find more balance and
equanimity in their lives. Wendy’s personal passions include gardening, reading, being at the
lakeshore, wandering a farm market, and hiking in area parks.
