Vanessa's Focus

I know that therapy is just one piece of the puzzle. Building genuine connections with my clients, offering guidance and support that extends beyond the therapy room is vital.

Vanessa's Other Specialities

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. I tailor treatment plans to your unique needs and goals, drawing from evidence-based methods like DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and trauma-focused CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). Beyond these powerful tools, my toolbox includes ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). Together, these resources equip you with the skills and strategies to combat anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, and the lingering effects of trauma. In my therapy room, you’ll find a haven for honest exploration, empowering insights, and practical tools to build resilience and thrive.

More About Vanessa

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends, going to the beach in St. Petersburg, Florida, and walking my dog.

What Clients Are Saying

Wide Variety of Services

Such a great option for a wide variety of counseling. The fact that they provide services to all ages, couples, families, etc., and are LGBTQ+ affirming is very important to me. Also, it is hard to find somewhere that provides DBT and EMDR services and treats as many issues as they do. Thank you Eddins Counseling!
