As your therapist, I will listen to your story and work with you to craft an individualized approach to therapy based on your situation and circumstances. I have experience helping clients dealing with a variety of issues by using a number of different therapeutic approaches catered to each need. If you’re struggling to overcome the challenges you face, I invite you to consider Christian counseling as part of your healing and recovery journey.

Vanessa has a valuable skill, more than just listening, she hears you and will clarify to understand what it feels like to walk in your shoes! Vanessa brings a calming peace to the space and creates a lovely environment to share and feel heard by a welcoming human who is genuinely interested in your well being. Vanessa is focused on your needs and bringing the healing to fruition. Godspeed.I wanted to express my gratitude to Joshua Adams. He’s compassionate and empathetic in his approach. He helped me during a bad time in my life. You would do well to see him.
