I am a licensed mental health counselor in Florida with over four years of experience working with individuals. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I am certified in accelerated resolution therapy and reconsolidation of traumatic memories to treat these types of traumas.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, attachment-based therapy, emotion-focused therapy and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to admit that we can't always figure everything out on our own and we may need outside support. It is quite the accomplishment to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Vanessa has been terrific to work with. I would benefit from in-person counseling, so I am making the move, but would most definitely consider coming back and working with Vanessa in the future, should circumstances change. Very thoughtful, compassionate and helpful, would definitely recommend.
Vanessa is a wonderful person to talk to. She will listen to what you say and not overstep in any kind of harmful way. If you’re looking for rational, expert thoughts about what you are going through, she is there.
Vanessa is very responsive and has been awesome! I enjoy speaking to her and would definitely recommend Vanessa.
I have had the opportunity to work with several counselors in person. I must say Vanessa and myself were matched perfectly. I look forward to continue working with her on my challenges to completely evolve as a person
Vanessa is an amazing counselor! You can tell her about anything and she really listens to you. If you have any questions or concerns, she is more than willing to explain things to you. Throughout this process, I have learned so much about myself and about patterns that I tend to partake in. It has helped me realize what I need to work on. I definitely recommend her!
V is an exceptional counselor & she gives me hope for the future. I look forward to working with her for as long as possible. She uses a variety of tools to help with coping while giving you the space needed to feel heard and understood.
Vanessa is excellent at what she does! A true gift. She is experienced and professional, makes me think outside of the box, and feel as if I have grown by talking with her!
Vanessa has been a great help for me in my stressful and jam packed days. I can be at work stressed and send her a message and she will always answer in a timely manner and help me focus on what I am going through. Thank you for this!
