I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Missouri. My areas of focus include eating disorders, multicultural counseling, and post-traumatic stress and sexual abuse & assault. Most of my experience is with the previously listed categories as well as depression, anxiety, and relationship and attachment issues. I have worked with clients as young as 13 although most of experience is with adults 18 and over.
I view my role as someone's therapist as both a sounding board for them as well as a witness to their past, present, and future experiences. I am here to provide alternative perspectives as well as be present with you as you are present with the difficult things in your life. I believe that you are the expert of your own life and I conduct therapy accordingly. I will never demean or judge you or speak (write!) to you in a condescending manner.
One of the most vulnerable things we can do in life is ask for help. My hope is that therapy can be a source of support in your life and that the courage that it took to ask for help will feel like one of the best things you could have done for yourself.
Additional areas of focus: Stress, Anxiety, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Depression, Coping with life changes, Attachment Issues, Body Image, Control Issues, Eating and Food-Related Issues, Gender Dysphoria, Immigration Issues, Isolation / Loneliness, Mood Disorders, Multicultural Concerns, Post-traumatic Stress, Sexual Assault and Abuse, Women's Issues
Clinical approaches: Attachment-Based Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Jungian Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy

Veronica is an excellent therapist. She is warm, caring, and helps you look deeper to find the root of your problems. She is a great listener and is very knowledgeable in helping individuals with eating disorders. I would highly recommend her!
