Welcome to Better Help! You've taken a huge step and I am excited to begin our work together.
My name is Veronica McKnight and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida. I earned my Social Work degree, from the Silberman School of Social Work in New York in 1993. I've worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, trauma/abuse, addictions of all kinds, communication in relationships, and parenting challenges. Over the past 26 years as a clinician, my experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling by far is the connection and comfort you feel with the person you choose to share your personal struggles. I use a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with a strengths based, solution focused approach. I believe we can all grow through challenging experiences by increasing our self-awareness. We all want to be able to share our personal truths and be accepted and understood. I feel that listening and feedback help to promote insight and healing from life's issues.
You are welcome to message me anytime through Better Help. The frequency with which you can have access to a counselor to work through day to day emotions and problem solving is extremely beneficial and a nice change from traditional outpatient counseling. I usually check messages twice each day, six days per week (off Sundays). I offer messaging, live chat and phone sessions with availability in the early morning and weekends. Please note that what you see in my calendar may not reflect my only availability so you always want to check that out with me through messaging first.
I look forward to working with you!
I also have experience in relationship issues, family conflict, trauma, intimacy-related issues, anger management, self esteem, career difficulties, and chronic mental health issues.

I have only been seeing Veronica for a short time, but I already feel more hopeful about the future than I have in a long time.
Veronica is understanding and empathetic. She listens to my concerns and worries and acknowledges them and helps me find ways to cope and better understand them.
Veronica is great and has really helped with my confidence. Our text messaging is a nice reminder during the day that I’m working through this every day. Not just once a week.
I was incredibly nervous but the minute I saw her I felt at ease. She just seems like a very genuine and experienced person with these matters. She’s also helped me think outside of what I thought my problems were and helped me think of practical solutions. Very good!
Veronica is a fantastic and professional therapist. She is extremely open-minded and understanding with a friendly, non-judgmental demeanor. I would highly recommend her to friends, family, or colleagues whether they are new to therapy or seeking to return to counseling services.
