Wendy Brundage Huntley
I have availability for virtual and in person sessions.
Wendy Huntley is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located on line and in Holmdel, New Jersey. She has worked since 1992 providing individuals, couples, and groups therapeutic interventions which create change. Wendy created Rising Higher Psychotherapy after successfully counseling clients for decades. She has developed a warm, welcoming, strait forward style which allows clients to feel safe and begin to identify difficult issues. Her message to all is that “we all make sense.” Whatever is creating your pain can be better understood and managed.
Clients seek Wendy’s care when other avenues they have perused have failed. Symptoms of anxiety, unprocessed trauma, and relationship problems are her focus. These symptoms include: constant worry, sleeplessness, appetite changes, self criticism, self rejection, addictive behaviors, ruminating thoughts, relationship struggles, and overall feelings of defeat. Many clients are very successful in other areas of their lives, yet struggle to view their own value and strengths.
Wendy is trained in numerous theories and interventions. Some of these include:, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing,
EMDR influence, Humanistic Psychology, Client Centered approaches, Theories of Grief Counsel, and Spiritual Growth concepts.
Rising Higher Psychotherapy welcomes clients in a very comfortable office. Clients can expect the opportunity to be truly heard and at the same time gently empowered. Their symptoms, history, and other information will be processed and treatment goals will be identified. She is flexible with all aspects of clients care, the treatment meets clients “where they are”.
Wendy received her MSW in Clinical Social Work from New York University in 1992. She has received certifications in EMDR and clinical supervision CCS. Wendy has worked in nonprofit substance abuse and mental health treatment centers throughout Monmouth County since she moved here in 1996.
