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!

I have healed in so many ways by seeing Veronica. She has several techniques and areas of expertise to conquer deep rooted trauma and attachment issues. I have also gained a lot of self confidence and the ability to believe in myself and my own thoughts and decisions. I highly recommend her.

Veronica is amazing and knows my struggles and is so smart in how to help me. I joke and tell her that I wish I could shrink her down and have her on my shoulder to whisper things in my ear through my day on how to handle things better. She is great and would recommend her to anyone.
