Wendy Lehman is a psychotherapist who works with adults, children and adolescents. She provides individual, group, and family therapy, and maintains a private practice in Washington, DC.
With over 15 years experience as a therapist, specializing in non-verbal approaches, she is currently serving as private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. Many clients are able to more easily access and work through trauma, depression, anger, or anxiety, using experiential (non-verbal) approaches, in addition to talk therapy. These may include mindfulness practices, such as breath work, meditation, body awareness, or guided imagery. She often makes use of creative arts, such as writing, reading, drawing, painting, sculpture, music and dance. She also may incorporate therapeutic play, such as role-play, puppets, games, puzzles, or toys. She may provide talk therapy alone, or integrate these complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client.
Ms. Lehman became interested in psychotherapy through the practice of visual arts. During her previous career as an art teacher to children, she came to value the personal growth and development demonstrated by her students through their artwork. Her therapeutic approach is to regard therapy as an art-form, and to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. With compassion and understanding, she works with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
