Kelly Wender, MA, NCC, LPC

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Michigan. I am trained in EMDR through an EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) approved program. In addition to EMDR, I have extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy. I view treatment planning as a collaborative process with each client, working to establish goals and identify appropriate treatment modalities. I utilize empathy and understanding to facilitate growth in a supportive counseling environment. I work under the belief that a healthy body supports a healthy mind. By encouraging clients to assess their level of self-care and overall health, I incorporate aspects of the Holistic Counseling approach with every client.
