Meet Kelly

Kelly P. Wender, MA, NCC, LPC


I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Nationally Certified Counselor specializing in individual, couple and family therapy. I am licensed in Michigan. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from St. Norbert College, along with a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of St. Thomas.

I have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy and EMDR. I obtained EMDR training through an EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) approved program. The EMDRIA website ( is a great resource for more information on EMDR and how it works.

I view treatment planning as a collaborative process with each client, working to establish goals and identify appropriate treatment modalities. I utilize empathy and understanding to facilitate growth in a supportive counseling environment. I work under the belief that a healthy body supports a healthy mind. By encouraging clients to assess their level of self-care and overall health, I incorporate aspects of the Holistic Counseling approach with every client.
