About me

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 and Utah. I hold a Doctorate of Theology in Christian Counseling and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I have worked closely with Veterans, people suffering from adjustment disorder, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, couples, 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 clarity 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 and behaviors.
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.

A great and blessed therapist

Written on Sep 05, 2022 after therapy with Vanessa for 1 year and 1 month

Vanessa is a true professional, but most importantly, she uses her spiritual heart/mind to help apply counseling strategies. She is warm, but keeps it VERY real, and is not afraid to ask tough questions to get you thinking and moving forward. I am thankful to have her as my therapist. We have more work to do, but I am ;looking forward to it.

Vanessa is the best therapist I’ve worked with hands down. She takes the time to actually listen to your issues and holds you accountable to the goals you have set. Her expertise has helped me tremendously through a lot of issues I’ve encountered.
