About Me

Hi, I'm Wendy. I have practiced in the mental health field since 2007. I have a wide range of experience from crisis, corrections, Intensive Outpatient Programs that focused on substance abuse with families, community mental health, and private practice. 

In addition to providing therapeutic services for depression and anxiety, I specialize in human sexuality. I am a kink-aware clinician. I help transition individuals, couples, and partners who are interested in exploring the Poly, Swing, and BDSM communities. I assist those in the vanilla world, considering an alternative way of sexual expression, newbies in the communities who may be struggling to learn the ropes, and experienced practitioners looking to develop stronger communication skills, negotiation skills, and build healthy, intimate relationships with other play partners.  


Welcome to my practice: Healing & Empowering Life Coaching and Psychological Services. I have a telehealth practice, providing confidential services via telephone and videoconferencing, open to clients all over the United States and a psychotherapy practice covering NY and WA. 

The Kink Coach

I enjoy working with those in the Poly, Swing, and BDSM communities. I am a kink-aware provider, with experience to differentiate BDSM and abuse. New or experienced clients will find a safe and open space to discuss their most intimate concerns. 

The Bariatric Coach

I specialize in bariatric surgery. I conduct evaluations to clear clients for bariatric surgery in NY & WA and can be a Bariatric coach to anyone in the U.S. I can be the support you need to make changes for long-term success. I have over seven years of experience in bariatrics. 


I am an advocate for our LBGTQIA+ and TGNCNB (Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming, Gender Expansive, and Non-Binary) Communities. In session we address sexuality, gender, the coming out process, top/bottom surgical procedures, and challenges with our families. 

Clinical Supervision

Need supervision for licensure? I can work with you to complete your supervisor requirements for interns or pre-licensed clinicians in NY state. I offer a rate of $25 per hour, as I know how difficult it is to find quality supervision at a price interns can afford. 


For clients in the state of NY & WA, I provide Telehealth and videoconferencing psychotherapy. I enjoy providing this service for clients that need flexibility. I address depression, anxiety, and other mental health concerns. I can work with adults and older adolescents using cognitive-behavioral therapy, person-centered, and narrative therapy.

Yoga & Meditation

I am a yoga instructor and can provide services that utilize yoga, including meditation and mindfulness practices.
