Wendy’s initiation into healing arts probably began as a child who was blessed with experiencing a variety of paranormal events that helped her to learn and trust clairaudient and clairvoyant communication with spirit.
Her formal initiation began in 1996 in Portland, Oregon when she began studying Shamanic Healing though the Foundation For Shamanic Studies. She has trained with Sandra Ingerman in Soul Retrieval techniques and with several shamanic practitioners incorporating the healing energies of nature, doing divination work and teaching others to learn to do shamanic journey work.
In 1998, Wendy began training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). It was here, that she really began to understand how the body stores traumatic material subconsciously, that the physical body can manifest that stored material in physical and emotional disease and that the body can release that stored memory and it’s subsequent effects given the opportunity and assistance with proper techniques.
In 1999, Wendy began training in Dynamic Energetic Healing™, a powerful protocol that encompasses a variety of healing modalities drawn from the Energy Psychology field. Energetic Healing focuses on helping clients to identify negative emotions, limiting beliefs and old traumas held in the energetic pathways of the body, explore the origins or root causes of these disturbances that may have occurred in current or past life or carried through on an ancestral linage and then release them.
Wendy combines energetic healing, shamanic healing, EMDR and conventional client-centered therapy to provide clients with an integrated approach to spiritual healing, personal growth and emotional well-being.
Wendy holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology, a Master of Science degree in Social Work and is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She has been in private practice since 1995.
