About Wendy

About the Author:

Wendy Boorn received her Bachelor’s degree in English from Bucknell University in 1967. Following graduation, she married, moved across the country, and spent 11 years as a wife and stay-at-home mother of two. Graduate school followed and, in 1980, led to a Master of Counseling degree from Arizona State University.

For thirty-three years, Boorn has worked as a psychotherapist with more than 1,200 adult clients, including hundreds of mid-life parents. In addition, for fifteen years the author taught over 1,000 adult learners in college counseling psychology classes, during which time she regularly received the highest scores possible on student evaluations. She also developed and facilitated more than 200 workshops and presentations and has been interviewed on radio, internet, and in print.

Boo
rn began her career in the addictions field, where she developed and implemented innovative family treatment programs for eight years. For the last 25 years, she has been the owner of a private psychotherapy practice specializing in parenting, transitions, grief, addiction, and relationship issues. A member of the American Counseling Association and the National Board for Certified Counselors, she is licensed as a Professional Counselor by the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners.

The author sees herself as a student as well as a
teacher and believes that perhaps her greatest asset is an ongoing commitment to her own personal growth. She suspects that it is not just her expertise as a therapist and as a mother (including parenting adult children), but also her humility, sense of humor, and ability to empathize that make her clients want to work hard with her in therapy. Because she knows that she, and they, are wondrous works in progress, she infuses her work with this compassion.

Raised in suburban Philadelphia, Boorn now lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
Her passions include writing, traveling, playing the piano, creating memory books, and spending time with her grandchildren. On Sundays, she takes time to rest, recreate, and reflect. Living just one mile from her adult daughter, she considers it her greatest accomplishment that, nearly always, she and her daughter view this proximity as a blessing.
