About My Clients

Are you struggling to overcome the shame, sadness, and confusion surrounding traumatic events in your life? I help individuals process and overcome trauma and difficult events that have happened to them. I also have a special interest in treating anxiety and mood disorders, borderline personality disorder (BPD), and feeding and eating disorders.

My Background and Approach

I have experience providing individual, group, and couples counseling to a diverse population of adults and young adults, including people of varied race/ethnicity, gender identity, and sexual orientation, with mild to severe mental health disorders. My approach to therapy integrates attachment, mentalization, and somatosensory-based psychotherapies, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Action and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Additionally, Vanessa has specific training in trauma and complex trauma.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As an undergraduate, I was a sociology minor who conducted research on racial justice issues. I always seek to view the world from a social and racial justice "lens". Because of this, and because I am a member of the LGBTQ+ community myself, I take my role as an ally to underserved, underrepresented, and marginalized groups of individuals seriously. I am open to feedback in my approach and pledge to always be seeking growth and understanding, diversity, and inclusion.
