Hi! My name is Wendy Dingee, and I am an experienced therapist with training & skills to help you manage a variety of challenges.
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Las Vegas, NV
Because I am adopted, I am intimately familiar with the early attachment injury that, on some level, invariably accompanies adoptees, although for most of my life I believed that my adoption had no effect on me. Through my own process, I have become aware of how those early, pre-verbal messages from before birth and in early development live in the body and in the older, more primitive parts of the brain.
Anxiety is a result of the nervous system responding to a neuroception of threat that is outside of the current context and outside of conscious, logical-bran awareness. My polyvagal-informed somatic approach is especially suited to helping re-tune this response.
As a Board Certified Coach, I am trained and experienced in helping to create a life that is in line with your goals and values.
I have completed EMDRIA approved training in a belief focused approach. This is an integrative form of EMDR which allows me to use this powerful tool within the context of my own holistic, body-oriented, polyvagal-informed framework.
I am certified in the Rosenberg system of Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP) as a practitioner and teacher. IBP is a philosophy of psychotherapy that affirms the inseparability of mind, body, and spirit in the human experience, and offers a framework for working with painful, limiting patterns on a body level in addition to psychological/verbal.
