I lived in Michigan for 44 years until my relocating a year ago to Ohio for lots of major life changes! Making such a dramatic change to my life has been so rewarding. What we can accomplish when we step outside of our comfort zone! I received my Master of Social Work degree from Michigan State University in 2004, where I graduated with honors. I am currently a licensed social worker in Michigan and I also have my LISW certification in Ohio. I worked in the field of child welfare for 19 years as a worker and then a supervisor so child abuse and the resulting trauma are among my specialties. I am currently a supervisor in an agency where we ensure that those living with HIV get access to all things needed to thrive. I practiced individual counseling in Michigan for over five years. I have worked with people with a wide range of concerns including depression, relationship issues (including domestic violence), self-esteem, LBGTQ, anxiety/stress/panic attacks, OCD, ADD, and others. I live my life, both personally and professionally, as I treat all people with dignity, sensitivity, compassion, and respect. I do not judge anyone, regardless of their life situation. My counseling style is warm and interactive, focusing on mindfulness. My approach involves cognitive theory (one's thinking directly effects one's decision-making); humanistic (growth and self-actualization); and holistic (visualization, meditation, guided imagery). We will develop goals and a treatment plan together and our conversations will be tailored to what you need from me and what works best for you. It takes courage to seek out ways to live a fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am proud of you for taking those first steps and I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

Congratulations on taking the first step! Sometimes just getting in the door can be the hardest part. In reality, you have already been through the hardest part, you lived through the pains of your life. With help in counseling, all that remains is removing the clutter that was left behind and entering into wholeness and freedom. I see counseling as an exciting time of self discovery, freedom, and personal growth. Coming to counseling is a sign of hope. Working together in the therapeutic alliance, this hope will increase as you find your core self and take hold of the life you were meant to live, full of freedom and passion for what you want out of life. While there may be difficult areas of life to confront in counseling, freedom will come as these areas are brought into the light and processed with gentle care in the therapeutic alliance. I see the therapeutic alliance as extremely important. My task as the counselor is to work myself out of a job. I do this by empowering you with tools that spring board you into deeper paths of self discovery that you can do on your own at any hour of the day or night. My legal name is Sabrina Hanson, but I go by Veronica. I received a Bachelor Degree's in Science in Social Work at Florida State University in 2002 and a Master's Degree in Art in Mental Health Counseling at Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio in 2016. I am licensed in Texas and Ohio. In Texas, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor. In Ohio, I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and a Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor. I am specialized in addiction and trauma. I have received training in the following areas: EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Instinctual Trauma Response Model, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Nutrition and Mental Health, Telehealth, and Addiction Counseling. These areas of expertise will be explained in greater depth as time goes on so it is okay if you don't know exactly what they are. For now, simply know that I have lots of training to help care for you in the areas of trauma, anxiety, and addiction. While I am an eclectic counselor, the primary treatment approach I will be using is Internal Family Systems Therapy. This treatment approach will help you to learn how to access your core self and look at your emotions and thoughts in ways that will empower you to become the person you always wanted to be. It is an evidence based treatment approach that has been statistically helpful for countless people with varying types of emotional struggles. It is my mission as a counselor to work toward helping the whole person, mind, body, and soul. This is the reason I have been trained in so many different areas. I am continuously striving to be equipped with more tools that can help in the process of achieving greater freedom and wholeness. With each new modality that I learn, I have sought to receive counseling myself in these areas so that I can better explain these approaches to clients. The most important thing I would say to you as the client is that feedback is important. While I may have excellent training and a heart of gold to help you, you know yourself better than I do. I need you to help me help you. As you tell me through feedback what is helpful and not I can then personally tailor the treatment approach to meet your needs. I have many tools in my tool bag. Together we will find the tools that your particular person benefits from the most. This is the therapeutic alliance. Together we will go into the dark areas of your life that you want healed from and come to greater healing and wholeness. The journey will be taken together. You are not alone in this journey. My goal isn't to get you to a place of healing alone, it is to get you to a place where you thrive. I am excited to go on this journey with you and to get to know you better. For now, I encourage you to take a breathe, rest in the knowledge that the hardest work is already behind you, and know that you are capable of freedom and fulfillment in life.

Life can be very difficult, at times, and situations develop when a person can feel "stuck" and have difficulty seeing a way out. I utilize an eclectic approach to counseling and aim to generate a comfortable environment which will eliminate that "under the microscope" feeling, some people tell me they fear when seeking counseling. I initiate counseling with person centered, solution oriented strategies, which will allow the client to begin taking steps toward relieving stress while generating hope for a more fulfilling future. I utilize, active and reflective listening, mirroring, Rational Emotive Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as well as re-framing, and occasionally homework to help enable self motivation and the confidence to achieve personal life successes. I believe that people can learn the confidence to deal with many difficult situations, with encouragement, compassion, self understanding and the acquisition of new skills to approach problems which may arise in the future. Though I have studied and respect many religions and will do my very best to remain aligned with your personal beliefs, I do not provide religious counseling. I have a MA in counseling from the University of South Florida, with a focus on mental health. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor Supervisor in the State of Ohio. I started my career in Florida nearly 27 years ago and have my primary experience in dealing with trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD and bipolar disorder . I have extensive experience helping adult survivors of abuse as well as having presided over a group home for sexually abused girls. I am not formal or rigidly structured in my counseling method. I believe in treating each person individually and it takes a bit of time to learn about each person's perceptions and history. I work toward being compassionate, understanding and patient in my efforts to help you discover solutions for problems you are experiencing. I look forward to working with you!

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Fort Jennings counselor?

Before seeing your Fort Jennings therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Fort Jennings.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Fort Jennings licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Fort Jennings counselor can be dependent on your process.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Fort Jennings, Ohio can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
