Meet Wendy Levin-Shaw, LCSW

Relationship enhancement, effective parenting, marital conflict and interfaith marriage are some of the varied concerns that Wendy addresses with her clients.

In addition to psychotherapy, Wendy has provided education and support to groups on parenting, bereavement, interfaith couples and adoption. She has been a speaker on a range of topics, including communication, family relationships, and managing the challenges of our daily lives. As an adjunct faculty member at the Western Pennsylvania Family Center, she has authored and presented, "The History of Parent Education from 1850 to 1952." She also co-authored training materials entitled "Enhancing Self-Esteem in Parents."
