Therapist

Wendy McLoon, MS, LMFT

Hello, I am Wendy, your therapist, and I am glad you are here. I am sure you are wondering a little about me and how I can help you. Through working with different populations, I found out my passion is to help couples and individuals gain insights into their struggles and create meaningful changes in their lives and relationships. 
I am a systemic thinker and believe every issue is multifaceted. Issues are rarely one-dimensional. Looking at “problems” together this way can help us discover new, unique, and life-changing solutions together. I love working and collaborating with people, and as your therapist, my goal is to obtain the changes you want. I enjoy having deep conversations to understand the parts that make up your system, which in turn make up your life. Together, we can look at all the puzzle pieces and figure out how each piece fits or does not fit. Through our work together we will create “the picture of life” you want. Whatever your struggles are, I am here to be a part of your journey in facilitating the positive changes you want. Let’s do this together!

Professional Experiences

I completed both my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Valdosta State University. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with the state of Florida (MT3870). I have been working in the mental health field for over 6 years. I have experiences in working with people from different backgrounds, and cultures. I have worked with individuals, families, couples, and children (ages 2-17) struggling with trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, anger, behavior issues, relationship issues, substance abuse, parent-child conflict, parenting, adjustments, self-esteem, confidence, infidelity, boundaries, connecting with others, communication, and conflict resolution.

I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gottman Couples Therapy, CBT, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and other evidence-based models and interventions.

During my free time I enjoy watching shows, doing my nails, spending time with family and friends, eating yummy food, shopping, and traveling.
