Vanessa is amazing!!!! She calls me on my bad coping skills but in a way that understanding and she is also funny. She has the perfect balance of chill and understanding and what you would expect from a therapist. Talking to her about everything is incredibly easy witch for me is huge because I have always hated therapy. I would 1300% recommend her to anyone.

Vanessa is a cool lady. I can relate to what she says and talking with her is easy. She checks in on me in between appointments which I like.

Vanessa is the second therapist I spoke to on this app. I was doubtful after the first one, but I told her my story, anyway. She replied quickly and with a response that made me feel like she just understood EXACTLY what I was going through. She relates with me on a personal level, and she checks in. I truly appreciate her dedication to this. She’s wonderful, and I would recommend her to all my friends.

Vanessa gives recommendations that makes me think of how I see myself. She lets me speak my mind and asks me questions that I never would have thought of. Or questions that I have thought of, but never answered.

Vanessa is a good listener. She shares stories about herself so I know I'm not alone in my journey. She is a great resource to keep me grounded and not feeling too overwhelmed.
