I am a professional counselor licensed in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Utah with over 9 years of experience working as a therapist and an additional 10 years as a social worker and family advocate. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, adoption and foster care, blended families, trauma and grief. I am trained in EMDR which is a highly effective treatment for trauma. I specialize in helping clients working through abuse and/or trauma including complex grief and loss of a child.
I approach counseling as an interactive conversation where you are the expert of your experience and I am your coach to help address areas that aren't working the way you need them to and strengthen the tools that have helped you come this far. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, in a non-judgmental space. We are all doing the best we can and sometimes we need some help or another approach to make the progress we are wanting to see. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, attachment, and trauma informed counseling. Our work together will be specific to where you are in your progress and your specific goals.
Making changes is brave and can feel uncomfortable, especially in the beginning. Yet staying the same is often already uncomfortable and often why we reach out to change. Let's do this together!
I look forward to working with you!

She’s is very good. She understood me and knew what was the problem that I was having. Give the the techniques I needed to have a peaceful like and I will always be thankful for her
I have received excellent counseling, expertise and results from my sessions in just 8 short months of working with Veronica. I have recommended her to several people.
Veronica is amazing. She actually helps. She isn’t someone who just sympathizes. She offers solutions and I have loved working with her
She's caring and understanding, she listens and is very helpful
Knowledgeable and intelligent around subjects and I like the way she interacts in our sessions.
She is amazing she has helped me though a lot
Veronica is really awesome. She has helped my partner, and has been helping myself. She gives us plenty of time to really talk and get to the root of what's going on, and I'm extremely excited to continue working with her. 10/10 would talk about my sadness again
She creates such a safe place for me to talk about things. I’ve never been in a place where i feel safe to talk about things and she has helped me carry this over into my relationships with friends and family too. I have bridged a gap between me and my family and it’s all thanks to her!
Veronica has the greatest insights about situations. She is able to see your situation with empathy and also work with you for an answer. She helps getting to the root of the issue and I’m very grateful for her expertise.
Veronica is a gem and BH is lucky to have her. ❤️
She has spent the time to get to know me and my situation as well as my concerns. She has helped me to dive deeper into my issues and figure them out. I have made so much improvement since I started counseling and it is due to her guidance. She has been available through chat, email, and live sessions and I know that I will have the support I need whenever I need it. I am incredibly happy to have Veronica as my counselor.
Veronica is an absolute godsend I couldn’t ask for a more understanding and respectful therapist.
Veronica is the kind listener who asks good questions that I've needed for a long time.
Veronica is my outside support I didn't realize I needed. She is my voice of reason and strength when I need it.
Veronica does a fantastic job at helping me understand the root of my issues. She is able to understand what I'm feeling, even when I don't properly understand my feelings. She is kind, empathetic, and enjoyable to work with. Highly recommend.
I have been working with Veronica for a few weeks now and she has really helped me improve my mental health. Don’t get me wrong, I have a long ways to go. However the tools and tips she has are extremely helpful and I am forever thankful to have met her and continue to work with her. Thank you Veronica!!!
From her first response, I could tell Veronica was dedicated to my feeling better. She stands out to me as providing ample and thought-provoking validation.
I feel she understands me and that is big.
Veronica has a breadth of knowledge and communicates calmly about the issues I go through and what is happening behind-the-scenes that I might not be aware about. She is extremely supportive and validating, while also unpacking and subtly challenging ideas that you have told yourself to be absolute. I’ve not had many sessions with her, but she shares notes about our sessions and it feels like I learn a new thing about myself in every session!
At first I hesitant with BetterHelp’s choice, however I have met with Veronica three times and each time she has been aware of my needs, answered my questions, brought me peace of mind when very little else would, and is very approachable as a person. I’m grateful for the support she has provided for my needs. Thank you Veronica.
