About me

I’m a psychologist with more than 25 years of experience. I love counseling and working with individuals and couples. The joy of discovering a solution for a problem with someone and see them grow and thrive excites me. No one is perfect and at times, we all need help. It is a mistake trying to solve problems alone. I see counseling as the undiscovered gem in human functioning – far too many people miss the opportunity of working with a trained and skilled counselor to aid them on the journey to figure out a plan through their challenge. I’m glad you are considering this option and there is a reason that you are reading my profile. I would love working with you.

Dr. Venter is highly professional, listens, and offers valuable advice I can integrate into my life or points out things to consider moving forward. I highly recommend him as a therapist because he understands yet holds you accountable; he's practical and offers achievable goals.

I've been working with Dr. Venter for only about 2 weeks now but in this short amount of time I have learned a lot about myself through his guidance. He makes you feel safe and comfortable. Going into this I was anxious about opening up, but he made me feel safe within a couple of minutes. He is really nice and patient.

I was hesitant to see a therapist but after just my first session with Dr. Venter I was just blown away by how helpful he was! I feel that he understands my issues and offers me so much insight and tools in order to deal with those issues. I have been seeing him for about 3 months now and I have already recommended him to 3 people. I just can’t say enough about him. Do yourself a favor and see Dr. Venter right away!
