Wendy E. Baxter
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor
Board Certified Art Therapist
I earned my BFA from Boston University. Following a year in the Americorps program, City Year Boston, I had a period of work in domestic violence services. These experiences led to a desire to return to school to earn my dual graduate degree in Art Therapy and Counseling from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA.
I began my career working as an individual therapist at an intensive residential program for boys in Massachusetts. I honed my skills in developing therapeutic relationships and leading group therapy.
Then for 15 years I worked at an inpatient psychiatric hospital. I had roles as a program coordinator conducting art therapy and psychotherapy groups while I worked with a dedicated treatment team. I provided individual and group therapy along with case management for the LGBTQ Program. Additionally I provided individual and group counseling in an Adult Partial Hospitalization Program.
The next step in my own journey is to follow my dream to open a private practice and provide Individual therapy in my community that is Inclusive, Creative, Experiential, and Compassionate.
I bring my curiosity and hopefulness to this journey. Together we will discover your path to inner wisdom, growth, and peace.
