M.A. Counseling, Concordia University Irvine (in progress)
B.A. Psychology, California State University, Fullerton


Wendy is a wife and mother of three who is working as a stay-at-home parent while her children transition out of the home. She is also a graduate student who has been enrolled in the clinical mental health program at Concordia University Irvine for the past three years. Prior to going back to school, Wendy spent 15 years in the corporate world. She has worked with homeless single-parent ministries, helping these parents return to society. Wendy decided to pursue counseling because she felt called to share her knowledge and passion for helping others with life's transitions and struggles.

Wendy likes to provide an empathic ear to hear clients while they work through their pain and self-discovery. The goal is symptom reduction and re-connection to self and others. Wendy considers it a privilege when she is permitted to come alongside clients on this journey.
