After completing her MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University, Vanessa has been devoted to continuing her education by pursuing her Ph.D. to grow in the field of psychology and expand her knowledge as a professional. In addition, Vanessa earned her BS in psychology with a minor in sociology from Northern Arizona University.
Her years of experience in the mental health field include counseling, life coaching, case management, and crisis work, which inspired her to build her career by helping clients work through their trauma and struggles.
As a PhD student, Vanessa is passionate about the human mind. More specifically, she focuses on understanding how the events we experience help shape and create our values, beliefs, and needs. She has always had a passion for writing and finds that this form of self-expression helps her process and heal during challenging times.
Vanessa has six years of experience in the mental health field, where she started as a clinical case manager. She has worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings where she assisted trauma and crisis patients by providing them support, safety, and empowerment. As a counselor, she has gained experience working with trauma, including sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, religious trauma, cultural trauma, and grief or loss. Most of her experience has been with adults who have struggled with anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
Vanessa specializes in EMDR and advocates for trauma survivors by helping them find their voices and process their experiences in a safe and welcoming environment.
Mental health has been a significant part of her healing journey. After spending a large portion of her life receiving treatment, she has had both positive and negative experiences. Having the right team of professionals and clinicians was key to being able to share her story and challenge herself in empowering ways. With that, she has gained a voice and learned how to advocate for herself and her well-being. Most importantly, she learned about the beauty and power of vulnerability by speaking her truth. Therapy has given her a new outlook on life and helped her find her purpose. This has allowed her to embrace her life and trauma in ways I never imagined. Understanding her role in this world has given her the freedom and confidence to chase her dreams and live unapologetically as her true, authentic self.
Nature has always been Vanessa’s happy place and she finds herself in constant awe of the sunsets, sunrises, trees, and animals all around her. She finds inspiration outdoors, and believes this helps her stay grounded by appreciating the life and world around her.
