Vanessa Sanchez


About Me

I am a mental health therapist licensed in Florida, Colorado and Washington with over 20 years of experience working as a clinician, diagnostic assessor, and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia, ADHD, substance use and more. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have worked inpatient, outpatient, group, couples and individual therapy.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, motivational interviewing, solution focused, client-centered, internal family systems, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards growth. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I’ve tried therapy a few times before, with poor results. Vanessa’s approach makes sense to me and engages me in my own mental well-being. For the first time I feel like I have understanding and influence over my thoughts and emotions. Thank you Vanessa!

Within one session I made the decision to stay with Vanessa. She saw exactly what has been troubling me and has offered me ways to cope and heal. I’m thankful to have found Vanessa.

My first experience with therapy so I didn’t know what to expect. Vanessa is simply great. Wise counsel. Evidence based information to help me put emotions in context of normal brain processes. So understanding. 5 stars!

I pretty much instantly knew Vanessa was the therapist for me and my individual needs. I could not be happier with Vanessa's professionalism and attention during our sessions.

Work with me!
