My approach includes Cognitive Behavioral Thns to food, sex and relationshierapy, Motivational Interverviewing, some aspects of Dialectibal Behavioral Therapy and Reality Orientation while working with people with chemical depeddictiops. I am a certified Eye Movement Desensesitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist and have worked with victims of trauma and PTSD for a number of years. As a certied Multi-addiction Therapist (CMAT), I've worked with clients who are unsure of their sexual identity and /or have sexual compulsivity. I also work with clients ages 15 to 75 who have anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trichotiillomania and unresolved family of orgin issues. I am a compassionate person who listens intently to what is said as well as to what is not said. It is my belief that no one's feelings are good, bad, right or wrong. Since I view a therapeutic relationship as teamwork, it is very important to me that my relationship with a client is therapeutic; it is just as important to me that our relationship is trustworthy. My ultimate goal for therapy is for the patient to gain an optimal level of functioning.I am Licensed Certified Social Worker (LCSW) with over 30 years of experience and licensed in Alabama, Georgia, Louisianna, Mississippi and North Carolina.

She is very nice and listens to all your concerns and helps you to navigate through whatever you may be facing. She is very understanding and guided me a lot on ways to manage my anxiety .

The inner work I’ve done with Vanessa Cox has helped me find and cultivate strength in myself through healing and self confidence building. It is easy to feel comfortable with her and the tools she has given me have been valuable and effective for this stage in my life. Vanessa truly met me where I was and helped me work through past trauma. Since starting my sessions I am more equipped to live my life and feel at peace living it. For anyone seeking counseling looking to achieve those things, or just to get through whatever you’re currently feeling, Vanessa offers acceptance and never lets you forget your self worth. She is full of the type of wisdom and kindness that truly speak into your soul and you hear throughout the day when you need it. I’m eternally grateful for her.

I recently started working with Vanessa Cox. We have met twice via zoom and each session was very productive. She is very easy to talk to, like talking to a good friend. I am really glad I found Better Help.
