Hello! My name is Vanessa Cleere. I am a mom, educator and a fixer. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the great state of Texas and have lived here my entire life. I grew up in South Texas and relocated to attend Baylor University to pursue my degree in Psychology. I obtained my Master's in Counseling at Tarleton State University a few years after. I have worked in a school setting for over ten years and helped many families who needed extra support for various reasons. I understand that life can get tough and that having some one that will help you process your thoughts and feelings is important.
My counseling style is emphatic, trusting and interactive. I believe that my clients need to say what is on their minds and be able to feel safe to process it with me. Most people who seek my support are experiencing some form of stress in their lives. This could be job related, family related or a current problem they are trying to solve. This may manifest as anxiety, depression, anger, addictive behaviors, disordered eating, grief, trauma, relationship conflict, a struggle with life transitions, and trauma. I also assist people who wish to deepen their self-understanding and personal growth. Whatever you are going through, I believe that we can join together to help you understand your unique experience and develop creative solutions. My approach is a mostly humanistic in that we focus on ways to help improve an individual's self-image or self-actualization - the things that make them feel worthwhile. I like to set goals when needed and work on various tasks in order to reach the clients ultimate needs.
It takes courage to seek out help so I look forward to making that an easy and comfortable step for you!
