Hello, my name is Wendy Blackburn, MSW. I am currently working on obtaining my clinical license here at Brightside Behavioral Health.

I value providing a safe and private space for clients to share their stories and life experiences. So far, my strengths include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, talk therapy, empathic listening, and supporting client’s through life transitions.

I graduated from the Graduate School of Social Services at Fordham University with a Masters in Social Work. Currently, I am completing the required hours to obtain my clinical social work license (LICSW).

I also have experience working with clients who have experienced trauma and PTSD. I work with clients ranging from teens to older adults. My professional special interest is treating teenagers through older adults.

I obtained a B.A. in Studio Art in 2001. Illustration, Watercolor, and Lino Printing are part of my life outside work and bring me a lot of joy. I also try to incorporate art therapy with clients who are interested in doing so as part of their sessions.
