Wendy E. McCarthy, LISW

I received a Master's degree in social work from The Ohio State University in 1993 and have been licensed in the State of Ohio to practice independently (LISW) since 1995. I am experienced as a clinical treatment social worker and have diverse professional experience including the Ohio public school system, Job and Family Services, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Mount Carmel medical social work, Kenyon College and last, but certainly not least, as a private practice therapist. I began my private practice in Central Ohio and recently opened a second location on the shores of Lake Erie. I look forward to meeting you and working beside you!
