Wendie Lubinsky Counseling PLLC
Mental Health Counseling for Couples, Individuals, Families, Teens, and Adolescents
Couples and Family Counseling – Wendie specializes in couples, families, and individual counseling. Wendie uses an eclectic theoretical orientation but her primary theoretical orientation is existentialism with a focus on Logotherapy to help clients identify meaning in their lives and create goals to move in the direction of wellness. Wendie enjoys working with couples to help them reconnect spiritually, emotionally, and physically and utilizes sex/intimacy therapy as part of the integrated process of bringing a couple back together. It is normal in relationships for there to be an ebb and flow with intimacy and communication however stress in relationships arises from one or both partner’s lack of communication skills, unmet expectations, failure to follow through, false promises, and failure of the partnership. This can lead to a lack of desire for intimacy and cause more frustration. Communication is the foundation for a healthy relationship and it is important that partners speak the same love language by communicating in a style each partner will comprehend. This could be the tone of voice, the intent behind the communication, perceived messages, love languages, or false narratives. If your “music is off” your partner will not be receptive to your message.
Wendie also specializes in clients with trauma, eating disorders, change of life crises, addiction, depression, anxiety, and many more.
Life is hard, and the choices we make can determine how we cope which can benefit us or be a hindrance. The process by which we do things is just as important as the outcome. Therapy sessions are dedicated to helping you where you need it the most. My combined treatment plans look at the mind-body connection to understand why we have a stomachache, or headache, are unfocused or unmotivated, have anxiety, or fear, are unhappy, can’t stay out of the kitchen, or why our relationships are failing. Together we will uncover your triggers and learn new healthy coping skills. I work with individuals, families, couples, and adolescents, and run group sessions for additional peer support and cultivating group coherence so we realize we aren’t alone. I integrate treatment theories including but not limited to Psychotherapy, REBT, Structural Family Therapy, CBT, Attachment Theory, Exposure Therapy, Cognitive Based Therapies, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Play Therapy, Logotherapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Areas of focus include behavioral difficulties, depression, anxiety, panic disorders, obsessive/compulsiveness, trauma, relationships, family difficulties, eating disorders, infertility, and sex counseling.
Are you having trouble coping and managing during these stressful times? Is decision-making or self-control hard skills? Are you able to stay positive? Or are you overwhelmed, confused, and frustrated with your life and the environment around you? I specialize in helping clients learn effective coping skills to manage systemic issues such as eating disorders, marital and family challenges, life changes, anxiety, depression, and many more. You’re not alone if you feel like your eating habits are out of control, you desperately need a break or feel like you’re on a never-ending merry-go-round and just want off.
If you aren’t learning from your past and loathe the thought of the next stressful situation, then you haven’t gathered enough tools from your experiences to help you on your journey through life. Stress is a part of life, so is sadness, anger, anxiety, pain, love, joy, happiness, etc. So if this is what we should expect, then we need to learn how to manage ourselves so we don’t fall to pieces the next time life gets tough.
