Vanessa Faulkner

LPC

About me

I am licensed in Texas as a professional counselor with 3 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress & anxiety, trauma & abuse, motivation, self esteem, confidence, & depression in both an acute care setting & outpatient setting. I believe each individual has a unique story & should be met where they are in their own journey. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming obstacles that challenge you. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. Whether you are looking for support, how to find meaning in your life, or guidance in trauma or coping skills, I would love to connect with you & help you take that step.

My office hours are 8am-6pm Monday-Friday. I answer messages between these hours and continue until about 9pm CDT. I answer messages sent within an hour (give or take) as during my office hours I might be with another client if you see me online and I have not answered back immediately OR if it is after hours, I am with my family. If it is passed 9pm CDT, I will most likely not answer a message until morning. If it is an emergency, please call 911 or 988 if you feel you need to speak to someone for your mental health.

Ms Faulkner is an extremely effective and supportive therapist. She has a knack for building fast but meaningful rapport, and is highly emotionally intuitive. Her observations and gentile guidance are characterized by nuance and matched vulnerability with strong professional boundaries. As a counselor myself, I appreciate the care and efficacy she brings to the table in sessions. I was hesitant to re-enter therapy; I now find myself looking forward to sessions after seeing her for a few weeks.

I've searched for years for a counselor I feel I could connect with. Vanessa is definitely what I've been searching for! She's absolutely amazing at creating ways for me to cope and learn from effective coping mechanisms and exercises.

I’m extremely impressed with Vanessa and the way she supports me. She’s given me so many tools since we began which was not that long ago. I enjoy my time with her and appreciate her explanations and thorough communication with me.

I was skeptical of trying therapy especially through an app but I’m glad I did! It’s convenient and my therapist is great,I can see myself overcoming my battles because of better help and with the help of my therapist,I would recommend!

Work with me!
