Life can be messy & gets complicated. Sometimes we just need someone on our side. I feel privileged to be in a position to come alongside people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds going through some of life’s most difficult situations. Together we will sort through any issues preventing you from enjoying your life. It is my joy to support you as you take an active role in restoring power, play and purpose to your life while creating a life of connection and meaning. I have 25 years of experience doing just that for many who have faced grief & loss, traumatic life experiences or challenging transitions, as well as those struggling with depression and anxiety. Whatever you are going through, I am here to provide a safe place where you can share your struggles. I will listen, offer options, amplify choices, examine beliefs & values, promote radical acceptance, and foster love. I provide empathy, nonjudgment, validation and a safe space while you sort through the barriers to the life you want. Therapy is a collaboration. You are on a unique path and you bring to therapy your strengths, needs and values. I see my role as honoring that as I act as your companion and guide towards better relationships and a better you. My most successful clients recognize that there are no formulas or magic solutions to life’s challenges. They know that life and therapy are hard work that involves trial and error and will require them to be open to changes in the way they think or act. They are growth-minded and solution-focused. If this sounds like what you are looking for in therapy, let’s get started today.

Finding a therapist you can identify with, feeling heard & accepted can be a challenging feat. Therapists are not one size fits all. We are people with problems, just like you. I offer you over 20 years of experience in the mental health and substance abuse treatment world. I have an undergraduate degree in psychology (2001) and a graduate degree (2006) in professional counseling. With working 10 of those years in a hospital setting, I also have a decent handle on possible medical issues you might need to be referred for. After more life experience, I became a Licensed Professional Counselor in 2016 and opened my private practice. I can't tell you all the answers to life's problems, but together we can come to what the best decision will be for you in particular. Your goals and values are worth exploring. Your likes and dislikes matter. Your happiness is not selfish.

Life is hard. So many of us struggle with issues related to anxiety, depression, and addiction making life feel even harder. Feelings of inadequacy and hopelessness are so common, leaving us overthinking and full of self-doubt. Fortunately, those distressing thoughts and feelings don't have to be permanent. You are capable of developing emotional resilience and self-confidence to enable you to thrive in this chaotic world. You are worthy of good things.

Does this sound familiar- today is the day! Today is the day that you are finally going to get organized, stop contacting your toxic ex or start that self care routine you've been thinking about for months. And you start off great but find it hard to keep those new behaviors going. Your mental résistance enters and you feel stuck. Stuck in damaging behaviors and problematic patterns. And the pattern starts again. So here's what I've learned along the way: 1. Transformation is not linear. 2. Transformation is a daily event. 3. You are your own best healer. I am here to help you on your path of transformation and healing. My goal is to create a safe space for you to be authentically you. You are the expert on your life and I am here to help you expand on your strengths as well as hold you accountable for reaching your goals. I have been a licensed Social Worker since 2007 and am both a certified grief counselor and an ADHD services professional. Are you ready to do the work? Consistent, small, daily choices can help you get from where you are to where you want to be. And I am here to help you in that process. I am currently offering telehealth in KS, MO, NC and TN. Reach out to take that first step. We can get there together.

It is this passion that I strive to assist those on the path to healing from the hurts of life and finding direction on the journey. Processing of information and experiences is just one portion of the healing process. As individuals we all experience life stressors at some point in our lives. It’s when those same stressors/traumas cause our lives to unravel that I am here to help you get life back in order and on track. Each person and their journey can be unique. It is for this reason I utilize an eclectic approach in therapy to tailor treatment to match each clients needs. Therapy styles include but are not limited to solution focused therapy, strengths based, psychodynamic, EMDR, and cognitive behavioral therapy.

My name is Vanessa and I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida & Missouri. I am bilingual(English & Spanish) and can provide counseling in both languages. I am originally from New York and have made Florida my home. My clinical background in Mental Health began as an undergrad and continued through grad school, working for the public sector for the Department of Children & Families where I worked with children, then the elderly in skilled nursing facilities and with adolescents in group homes. I then went on to work as a Nurse Navigator and provided services that included counseling and advocacy for oncology patients at one of the largest cancer hospitals in South Florida. In addition to this, I have also worked with adults in inpatient rehab for substance abuse and court ordered treatment, and served outpatient clients in the LGBTQ community. My training is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Solution Focused, and many others that include treatment planning; where my goal is to get my client back to a normal baseline that they are comfortable with and can function in their daily life. I am an open minded, kindhearted and empathetic individual, where my mantra is that I am here for YOU, my job is to assist you in anyway that I can, and help you manage life's daily stressors that may be recent or long-term. I work daily to remove the stigma that Mental Health has in our society, because the reality is, we all have good and bad days, some just need some assistance and guidance on how to manage it better. I believe we are all one step away from a mental health crisis, life is one big roller coaster of stress, worry, emotion that all revolve around something changing in our life that we were not prepared for and do not know how to adjust to it. So my job is to help you navigate all of that and achieve happiness, peace and overall well being.
