Professional statement

Wendy Aporta is an LMFT and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional in the state of Texas. She obtained her Master's degree in Psychology with an emphasis in MFT from Chapman University and is currently pursuing a PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy at Northcentral University.

Wendy Aporta cut her teeth as a certified domestic violence counselor as an intern, moved to mobile crisis response and suicide hotline as an LMFT-Associate, and then moved into full time trauma work as a fully licensed LMFT. For her, helping those with traumatic experience is not just a job, it is a vocation. Wendy Aporta is a perpetual student of trauma, constantly staying abreast of the latest research and treatments to provide the best possible options and outcomes for my clients. She is a member of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress and the International Society for the Study of Traumatic Stress.

Wendy Aporta's most frequent modalities are Acceptance and Commitment and Internal Family Systems Therapies, as well as Cognitive Processing Therapy, and she uses mindfulness-based and neurophysiologically-based interventions within trauma-informed care. She is proficient with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD, sexual assault, and acute psychopathology including dissociative identity disorder.

In Wendy Aporta's downtime, as a way of taking time to take care of herself, she is an artist. When she takes a break from the world of trauma in which she works, she paints, sculpts, produces mixed media art, and writes prose and poetry.
