Wendy McGath, BA MHP FRD

Specialty: Counseling/Case management
Location: FHN Family Counseling Center - Stephenson County

I find it particularly rewarding when I've helped someone have that "aha!" moment in recognizing that he or she has found more adaptive, appropriate and successful methods of managing his or her emotions, whether it be in interpersonal relationships or for experiencing greater "inner-peace." I also enjoy helping people reach educational and/or vocational goals or simply remain independent.
