Wendy Wahlquist, LMFT
About Wendy Wahlquist
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of Pennsylvania. I am also a clinical member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT). I have taken advanced training in Somatic Experiencing (SE), and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). I believe that people tend to know what is best for them deep down, and it is my job to assist them in discovering what they feel is the best solution. I am systemically oriented in my therapeutic work, seeing a problem as imbedded in relationships either within the family, or even the larger societal system. I also work from an attachment theory foundation. Attachment theory focuses on the innate biological drive that compels us to connect with others. Somatic Experiencing is also based on innate biological drives that help us heal… allowing the wisdom of the body to help heal us from traumatic experiences.
