Licensed Master Social Worker

Clients Served: Children and Adolescents

Specialties: Grief/Loss, Anxiety, Depression, Trauma

Hi, I’m Wendi, a Licensed Master Social Worker. I happily serve clients in Tennessee. As a child, I was usually in trouble for talking too much in school. As I got older and continued that trend, I became more passionate about helping others and watching them succeed, so I decided to make a career out of those things by becoming a social worker. Watching people grow and learn and get that "aha" moment in therapy brings me joy!

 

In pursuit of helping others reach their greatest potential, I obtained my Masters degree from the University of Memphis. Since then, I’ve dedicated myself to specializing in working with youth, focusing on areas such as grief and loss, anxiety, and depression. Over the years, I've had the privilege of working with children and teens of all ages in various settings, including my recent role in schools. I find immense satisfaction in aiding young individuals as they navigate the complexities of growing up and supporting those who are struggling to adjust to the challenges of young adulthood. My passion lies in providing a safe space for youth to explore their emotions, build resilience, and discover their inner strengths.

 

As a therapist, my favorite part of working with young clients is empowering them to help themselves. I firmly believe that every child has the potential to thrive, but sometimes they need guidance and support to unlock their abilities. In my therapy sessions, I create a safe and nurturing environment where your child can explore their emotions, build resilience, and develop the skills they need to navigate life's challenges. I am dedicated to being a compassionate and encouraging presence in your child's journey towards growth and self-discovery. Seeing your child gain confidence, overcome obstacles, and embrace their unique strengths brings me immense joy and fulfillment. Together, we can empower your child to create a brighter and more fulfilling future.

 

During our sessions, I'll work closely with your child to address the challenges they're facing. Together, we'll shift our focus away from dwelling on the negatives and instead, we'll actively seek out solutions to help them overcome these obstacles. I'll help your child understand how their thoughts, feelings, and actions are all connected, and we'll work on making positive adjustments to improve their overall well-being. My approach is grounded in evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Therapy, which are proven to be effective in helping children and teens. Additionally, I incorporate elements of Strengths-Based Approach and utilize play and art-based therapy techniques to make our sessions engaging and beneficial for your child. My goal is to create a supportive and empowering environment where your child feels comfortable exploring their thoughts and emotions, and where they can discover their inner strengths to thrive in life.

 

When I’m not seeing clients, you can usually find me at home playing with my children and dogs outside. I have a very creative brain and love embark on new DIY projects and test out new recipes in the kitchen.
