Wendy Fritz, LPC


I'm Wendy (she/her) and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia, as well as a National Certified Counselor. I received my Master of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of West Georgia. I am a Certified Autism Informed Professional and a certified Anxiety-Informed Professional. My interests include working with children, tweens, and teens with Autism, along with those having concerns such as ADHD, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, anger management, and children with special needs. When working with clients, the modalities I use include AutPlay, Child-Parent Psychotherapy, Child-Centered Play Therapy, Adlerian Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Client-Centered Therapy. Parents can expect a collaborative relationship, in which I schedule a time to meet with parents for goal identification and progress reports every 4-6 weeks.

I look forward to sharing your journey back to a state of peace. Whether it be a tween or teen using words, or a child using toys, I strive to listen in an empathic way with the understanding that allows one to share feelings in a deep and meaningful way. I emphasize the relationship between you and your child as well as your experience. I strive to join you in finding a way forward that honors your child and your child’s own unique way that will allow them to reach their full potential. I aim to provide a nonjudgmental space in which you and your child can feel safe and understood. Learn more about therapy with Wendy here.

Finding Light

A note from Anne: Growing up there were woods down the street that would be filled with fireflies during the Summer. I could sit there and stare at them all evening until they finally went to bed. The individual lights were so small but together they made such a beautiful show. I think in life sometimes we forget about the firefly moments. They aren't always those big events, promotions, new purchases, etc. that make us happy in the long run. It's those little moments that are so easy to miss if we aren't paying attention. Those are the moments that create beauty and meaning in our lives. And those are the moments I want to help you find so that you can have your own forest filled with fireflies.
