About Me

I am a professional counselor, licensed in both the states of Florida and Georgia, with over five years of experience working with individuals and families. 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 (ART) and reconsolidation of traumatic memories (RTM) 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!

First off, kudos to Betterhelp for pairing me with Vanessa. They did a great job linking me up with a therapist who fits with me. Vanessa is kind, actively listens, and gives me the safe space to share my pain and fall apart if I need to. She gives great advice and healing.

Vanessa is very kind and professional.

Written by N.A. on Jan 10, 2020 after therapy with Vanessa for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Vanessa is very honest & allows you to find what it is you need to help yourself. A good counselor doesn't tell you what to do they help you to find a course of action that works for you. V is a great counselor because besides helping you to find your own path she cheers you on the whole way, while remaining honest when not honest with yourself. She's an awesome beacon of hope who's down to earth and relatable. I'm happy I found her.

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.

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

Written by J.E. on Sep 10, 2019 after therapy with Vanessa for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

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!

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!
