Do you feel pulled in a million directions, unable to fit it all in? Are you struggling to keep up with your relationships, work and health? Is it hard to be kind to yourself? I help high performers manage anxiety and avoid burnout. Together, we can identify what's not working and get you back to balance. Hello! My name is Vanessa Almendarez and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in South Florida. I have a passion for helping people fulfill their purpose in life. I specialize in children, adolescents, and adults. I provide an engaged, safe and compassionate space where you can tell your story and explore how thoughts and past experiences impact the way you feel, behave, relate to others and manage life's challenges. I will assist you in finding healthy alternatives and an empowered path forward. For over 9 years, I have taken an integrative approach and collaborated with my clients using different techniques to help them achieve their mental health goals in areas such as anxiety, depression, emotional disturbance, anger management codependency, career counseling and so much more. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps toward change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our first session, I will spend time getting to know you. I believe in meeting clients where they are and working collaboratively as a team to help bring you to the life you were meant to live.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I often use Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). I like to explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate way to help you make progress

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I specialize in ADHD, anxiety, and depression. My focus is on helping you to become confident in yourself, as well as learning strategies to manage day-to-day. I believe in taking a collaborative approach to helping clients reach their goals.
