    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

    Vanessa Ford's Care Philosophy

    For more information on my practice, or to contact me, please visit my website at http://vanessaeford.com/index.html My approach to the counseling process is two-fold. First, I believe strongly in developing insight into the self. Insight-oriented treatment usually includes: PAST, including any losses or traumas that may still impact you today PRESENT, including any behaviors you are concerned about or conflicts in your relationship(s), or issues such as depression or anxiety FUTURE, such as goals or a vision you have for yourself. Secondly, I believe that insight cannot be effective unless we look at ways to increase your coping skills- right now- so that you may begin to let go of any old ways of doing things that don't seem to be working anymore. We will do this by taking a look at what you are: THINKING, such as negative self-doubts, or negative expectations FEELING, such as depression, anxiety, sadness, anger, or feeling disconnected DOING, such as any behaviors that you may be worried about, such as engaging in excessive or compulsive behaviors (sex, drinking, using drugs, shopping, cleaning, etc.), communication skills; isolating yourself from others; not reaching your full potential. EXPERIENCING, such as a recent loss or other stressful incident. Our goal together will be to create an internal sense of empowerment so that you (or you and your partner/spouse/family) feel in control of your past and present, so you may begin to work towards the future you would like to build for yourself. My office is warm and inviting, and will help you relax into this process with a sense of ease.
