Wendy Hartmann, MA, LPC, NCC graduated from Muhlenberg College and completed her counseling education at Fairleigh Dickinson University. Wendy has had the opportunity to participate in organizations with special focus on issues of cultural competence, professional ethics, and human rights. As a result, she starts therapy as a process of learning the life story that makes each family unique. Wendy believes the foundation for good therapy is respect, no matter what your age or place in life. What you care about matters, and she provides a supportive partnership through life's challenges, big or small.
Wendy has focused on trauma, play therapy, and attachment therapy for over four years. She has experience working with children and young people of all ages, parents, and families in a variety of life transitions related to growing up, changing family structure, school challenges and bullying, adoption, ADHD, domestic violence, grief and loss, and trauma both big and small. Wendy has worked with families formed by adoption and those who have opened their homes and hearts to children in foster placement. Her hopeful, client-centered approach helps children and their families build self-awareness, nurture self-esteem, relieve stress, and be prepared to experience life to its fullest.
Wendy is passionate about play therapy and has served on the executive board of the New Jersey Association for Play Therapy to bring networking and training opportunities to play therapists in New Jersey and the surrounding areas. She volunteers her free time to educate the community on preventing and ending domestic violence.
