Vanessa is a wonderful therapist, my time with her has been so transformative I am in awe sometimes at how much I have grown and healed. She brings a fresh perspective to the tried and true methods and offers new treatments tailored to your goals and needs. I cannot recommend her enough. It can be a weird thing to reach out for help and while it is most human to feel awkward about opening up to a stranger, Vanessa welcomes you in and helps you see connections that lead to the most beautiful healing moments. I am so grateful I took the leap and made an appointment with her.

I have been seeing Vanessa for just about a year. In that time span her work has helped me "level-up" in so many different areas of my life, from my relationships to career/vocation to healing past traumas. Vanessa is kind, calm and compassionate. She provides a safe and comfortable space to heal and explore. We primarily use talk therapy in our sessions, but have also used EMDR a few times and that has been very helpful as well. I recommend her highly!

I have been seeing Vanessa for about 8 months, and have made more significant gains in that time than I did in 5+ years of talk therapy prior. I initially started seeing her for her expertise in EMDR. I had hit a plateau in traditional talk therapy, and knew I needed something more. I have symptoms of PTSD due to childhood trauma and growing up in a dysfunctional family, and after years of talk therapy, I would still be triggered by things I knew logically I shouldn't be. I knew countless techni

I've been seeing Vanessa for a little under a year. I had been hesitant to get into therapy to deal with past trauma and a lifetime of depression. Finally I was encouraged to see Vanessa and it has been an incredible experience. She is very patient (even while I am quite stubborn), calm, encouraging, and motivating. She has helped me with start dealing with (and defining what "dealing" means) past sexual trauma, depression and irritation issues, business struggles and a lot of self actualization

Vanessa's a great therapist. The office is inviting (easy parking on the street), and she is kind, caring, and insightful. She draws on many years of experience to help you explore issues and patterns, asking thoughtful questions and listening to the answers. Highly recommended.

I have been seeing Vanessa for about a year now. I had seen an excellent therapist in the past several years ago and felt that I needed a "tune up." I had been referred to her by a co-worker who had nothing but good things to say about Vanessa so I decided to give her a try. My co-worker was right! Vanessa is a caring, compassionate counselor. She's a good listener, too! The assistance she's given me is invaluable! Highly recommend!
