I have a lot of experience working with young children using play therapy and expressive therapies. When appropriate and possible, I like to include the parents and siblings to play with us so that we can cement positive bonds from the child's understanding and developmental stage. Play therapy is a tremendous tool to access fears, hopes, dreams, and the strengths within the child to heal from divorce, grief or trauma.

Teenagers are often misunderstood and feel unheard by the adults in their lives. I can provide that supportive, non-judgmental ear to teens who are struggling with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, cutting, and social and parental relationship problems. I can also provide guidance for parents in parenting these wonderful teens in a way that invites love and respect.

I enjoy working with children because they are more transparent (less defended) and more teachable than adults. Children's misbehavior and acting out are attempts to meet needs like adults who act out attempting to meet needs. Like adults acting out is usually tragic and self defeating in its consequences. Helping children and adult learn authentic successful ways to meet their needs with communication skill training and Compassionate listening skills with family as part of the healing journey work best to make sure everyone's needs are addressed and met.

Struggling with your child's behaviors? Is your child angry, depressed, or suffering from family issues? I work very well with children helping them to process their emotions and develop healthy ways of coping. I also spend a lot of time working with parents to equip them with the skills to connect with and better help their child navigate and overcome their current struggle. Every child's personality and situation is unique. This requires a therapist who can help problem solve with parents to find the best solution for their particular child. Rather than following a particuar formula I will work with you to give your child the help they need. Call today for a consultation.

No man is an island and this couldn't be more true for a child in distress.When a child is having behavior disorders such as ADHD, ODD or emotional disorders of depression and anxiety, there is a great impact on the child's family as well. Dr. Wendt has successfully treated children with these disorders using a combination of individual and family therapy interventions to help manage and alleviate the symptoms that are preventng the child and his/her family from enjoying all what life has to offer. Educating and helping the child's family understand the dynamics of the disorder and how they can actively be part of the solution goes a long way in improving the emotional health of all members.

When working with young children I make use of play exercises, as playing is one of the primary ways in which children express what is going on in their "world" both mentally and emotionally. I also place significant emphasis on their family life, as a child's behavior is strongly impacted by their home life. I also provide parent coaching in order to equip the parents with effective skills to manage the child's behavioral difficulties. I believe that effectively helping a child often requires both individual therpay with the child and family therapy.

Working with young children requires that the professional possesses specialized knowledge and skills that enable them to identify problem behaviors and formulate appropriate interventions that are developmentally appropriate for the child. As a psychologist trained to work with children and families, I develop individualized treatment plans appropriate to each child's and family's specific needs. Working with children, I use an playful approach which will engage the child in addressing any psychic conflicts they may be experiencing and find healthy ways to address those conflicts so that children can function at their most optimal level in all facets of life.
