I have been providing counseling in various settings for over 20 years, with 12 years as a licensed professional. I am a counselor who provides services in the state of GA(LCSW). I have worked closely with Veterans, people suffering from adjustment disorder, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, empty nesters and other persons who are experiencing loss or grief or relationship problems.
My style of counseling includes cognitive behavioral therapy; helping you to improve your mental focus by thinking and developing coping mechanisms to overcome the issues that are concerning to you. My approach utilizes motivational interviewing. I want to point out the incongruence in what you say versus what you do; so we can begin to realign your thoughts with your actions.
My help in whatever area you are struggling with is just an email, click, text or phone call away. What are you waiting for; lets help you become your best self.

She has helped me grow into a stronger woman. She is a wonderful listener, great teacher, awesome advice giver! She is always there for me and I love her!
Vanessa understands my issues and isn't afraid to ask me to challenge myself and ask hard questions.
Vanessa has been so amazing in helping me go through my current struggles. Even after the session is over she will send messages to check in to make sure I’m doing well and I so appreciate it.
Best therapist I’ve worked with by far!
Listens and understands! Great to work with!
And she is cute.
Vanessa is awesome! She always stays level headed and objective. Her advice is spot on. I would gladly recommend her to anyone in my circle of friends and family.
I really appreciate her care and willingness to respond and understand what is going on in my life.
I've been working with Vanessa for only a short while now but In our first conversation I was really clear and honest about what was going on for me so she has been able to help me with a few worksheets on establishing healthy boundaries for myself and shining a light on a little blind spot that I had. She's been checking in through messages and I appreciate that she's engaging, straightforward and honest with me. In the short amount of time working with her I have been able to already see areas of where and how I can shift my perspective on a couple of key issues.
I have only worked with Vanessa for a few sessions so far, and I can only say I wish I started sooner. I put off doing counseling for a long time because I was anxious about being judged and felt unable to afford it, but I am so glad I have now decided to prioritize it. Vanessa is incredibly intuitive and understanding and has been able to help me understand myself much better. She is helping me to work through deep-seated issues and grow from this counseling. I would highly recommend Vanessa and BetterHelp.
Vanessa is very professional and empathetic, and very succinct and helpful with solutions on how to cope with day to day struggles.
Vanessa listens to me with complete focus and analyzes all the information I give her to give me very practical and realistic support and suggestions. She has significantly improved my life through her experience and knowledge in a very short time. She’s been great at helping me deal with my disability issues, family issues, relationship as well as career. She’s got everything covered so I feel less worried and feel safe that I have a plan to keep all these things in check. I don’t feel alone.
Vanessa has been great! It's so good to have another perspective on our relationship and the reasons we think and behave like we do. Have found it very helpful to have her support.
