About Me

Hi! My name is Veronica, I have over 20 years of experience counseling clients and I am very passionate about my work. I love to help people, and it makes me very happy to see them getting better. My clients say it's easy to connect with me: they feel that I can understand their worlds and that they can open their hearts as they haven’t before, and this makes them feel positively different about themselves. This might be because I have personally dealt with the suffering, sadness and anxiety of everyday life, allowing me to empathize with them. For this reason, I strive to be my best in order to help my clients. I know that you can feel better no matter what kind of situation is in front of you.

Please let me help you, life can be better, and you can be happy!

I won't give up on you!

I am a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist combining an array of eclectic theoretical approaches, over the 20 years that I have been working with my clients; I have realized that just one specific approach is not enough.

Written by M.I. on Mar 20, 2021 after therapy with Dr. Veronica for 11 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, sleeping disorders, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, and adhd

Veronica has helped me tremendously. I initially sought counseling through Better Help because my insurance would not cover my regular therapist. But I now have insurance again that will, but I've had such a good experience with Veronica, that I don't mind paying the extra to continue on with Better Help.

Veronica has been brilliant. She has helped me so much & I’ll always remember her lessons.

Veronica is extremely skilled in eliciting information and detail from myself as a patient that enables me to analyse critically and with compassion. It instils confidence in me the way she is able to interpret things that I didn’t realise about myself prior to speaking with her, and I really have always felt I know everything there is to know about my psyche and operate on a high level of consciousness. But Veronica can often reveal truths to me that hadn’t occurred before: this is highly indicative of a skilled therapist and compounds the need for therapy as a treatment; specialists are far better equipped to treat trauma and disorders than any other methods. She’s very professional and goes above and beyond in her responses to me and her attention to detail. I feel safe in being completely open with her, I’m very grateful for the service.

Veronica ia so skilled at what she does. We prayed after every call. She is so knowledgeable and have given me so many tools and worksheets to better understand my thought process. I will continue to use them and share them with the eople I know. I am so happy! Praise God for her life! ♡
