Announcement icon Time's are stressful now. Struggling with anxiety and depression during the pandemic? I am holding sessions by teletherapy. I can help!
Do you have relational conflicts? I help couples, teens and families to improve communications. In life we face challenging times: Loss, divorce, transitions and disappointments. Chronic pain, illness, grief and the loss of a loved one often compel individuals to seek therapy. I also specialize in adolescents and college students assisting them with growth and independence. Many issues occur, such as sexual identity, friendship conflicts, drugs and alcohol as well as academic challenges. Building trust in a safe place,may help you transform and grow. Therapy allows a new awareness of life and love can occur!
Once you feel safe and comfortable then the work begins. I have over twenty six years of experience with adolescents. I worked in a residential treatment center assisting adolescents recover from traumatic experiences using art and traditional talk therapy. I also help families navigate through school systems advocating for their adolescent.
I am trained as a clinical social worker and psychoanalyst. I use dreams as a vehicle to understanding deeper issues. Having lived abroad for many years, I am aware of cultural diversity. I believe in a humanistic approach. Mindfulness and art therapy are often integrated into my work.

Wendy Miriam Lafollette Wright's Groups

Understanding Your Teenagers

Adolescents is a time of turmoil and confusion. There is a tug between these two contrasting feelings and needs. Separation from parents and closeness to friends. As parents we must help our teens deal with navigating their feelings with friends and relationships, develop good judgment, self-esteem, peer pressures,use of technology, facebook, texting, sex, drugs, alcohol use. Creating boundaries and decision making skills, giving a balance of freedom and involvement will be touched on. This group provides a safe place to share the multitude of concerns that parents are faced with in today's world.
