Wendy Bertram


13 years of experience
Solution oriented

My name is Wendy Bertram and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW/LISW) based out of Arizona with a Masters in Social Work from ASU. Currently I'm licensed in both Arizona and Iowa, providing both in-person and teleheatlh services. I use a client centered approach and multiple therapy models, depending on your needs. I am here to partner with you to work through the issues causing disruptions in your life and to help you meet your goals. Everyone’s experience is unique, and the therapeutic experience should reflect this. My expertise spans various areas, including life transitions, anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, grief and loss, self-esteem struggles, stress and worry, caregiver stress, and those struggling with the impacts of medical diagnoses. By employing a client-centered approach, I work to foster a safe and non-judgmental space for individuals to explore their emotions, thoughts, and experiences. I employ evidence-based interventions such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness techniques, and solution-focused therapy to promote personal insight, resilience, and coping skills for positive change.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

You can expect a safe and supportive environment with an appreciation for sharing your life story. Sessions will consist of establishing goals for what you want to work on and receiving the tools/skills/strategies needed to accomplish those goals. You will leave the sessions feeling heard and empowered to move through your challenges with a new look at life.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My years of experience, personal and professional, are my greatest strengths. I have acquired experiences (both lived and educational) to pass along to my patients that provide a connection of rapport and understanding.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

I've spent numerous years working in Healthcare both Medical and Mental Health. At times the best approach for therapy is symptom targeted and solution focused, especially when life rapidly changes due to a sudden change in your health or that of a loved one.
