Professional statement

Wendy Molinaroli is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Charleston, SC. Wendy specializes in helping individuals and couples overcome stressors like constant fighting, infidelity, sex/love/porn addiction, intimacy avoidance, and trauma. Many of the couples that Wendy works with need an objective third party to offer perspective into their conflicts. Wendy is a trauma-informed therapist who helps clients identify what’s holding them back from healthy connections with themselves and others. In addition to helping clients grow their relationships with their partners, she works with clients who suffer from PTSD and other trauma-related issues. Wendy is a Gottman Certified Couples Therapist, a Certified Sex Addictions Therapist (CSAT), EMDR trained, and a hypnotherapist.

Wendy is trained in The Gottman Method, a couples counseling therapy modality that emphasizes the role of emotions in a relationship. Clients learn how to explore their emotions with their partners, including the origins of these emotions and how they manifest in daily life. They also practice healthy communication so that when they leave therapy sessions, they have tools to continue to grow their bonds. For clients who suffer from painful memories from traumatic experiences, Wendy practices Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. This therapy modality uses brain function to help clients place those painful memories behind them. In therapy with Wendy, clients explore their coping habits, including those that are negative to their wellbeing. Wendy helps them understand their tendencies and build upon them for healthier, more intentional living.

Wendy earned a Master’s degree from The Citadel. She has nearly 30 years of experience working in the mental health and social services fields. She has additional certifications in The Gottman Method, CSAT, EMDR, addictions, trauma, and hypnotherapy.
