About me

Hi and welcome to Better Help, let me introduce myself , I am Vanessa and meeting people where they are to help them with life and balance is my purpose. I have been a therapist for 16 years. I have a very strong background in individual therapy, adolescent therapy, family therapy and couples therapy. I am certified in DBT (dialectal behavior therapy) and TFT (trauma focused therapy). I use different therapy modules, including the previous mentioned as well as CBT (cognitive behavior therapy) as well as many other forms of therapy that have a strong history of providing great outcomes. I have a very diverse background in my clinical experiences. My previous experiences include working for a world renowned Cancer Center, the largest hospital system in Houston on their Psych Response Team and also working in a Community Health Center providing therapy within the community. In addition I have worked in private practice providing therapy for a variety of different client needs. I have a strong background working with couples help with many different areas of therapy. I have successfully helped many couples meet their therapy goals and created great outcomes. Couples have many different life experiences and come from two different perceptions. It is important to have a therapist to help navigate those experiences and work towards great outcomes. I look forward to meeting you and working with you on your therapy goals. As a therapist, I will work with you to set and reach your personal goals to improve your overall mental health.

I loved how Vanessa laid ground rules for our communication with eachother. It gave us something to refer back to when things felt overwhelming.

Vanessa is a fantastic therapist and one of the best ones we have ever used as a couple and there have been a few. She is quick to intervene and provide real world solutions whereas some therapists will just ask open ended questions that make the couple talk amongst themselves for the majority of a session. It is apparent that Vanessa has a lot of experience to draw upon when it comes to couples that are facing challenges with young kids involved. I am confident Vanessa is the therapist we need to get our marriage back on track!

Absolutely incredible service from Vanessa, practical and realistic advice that achieves change. I was sceptical going into councelling that it would just be talking about feelings without action based direction, which has been my past experience and lead to disappointing results.
Vanessa creates direct actions that actually lead to the changes you want to make and her outside perspective and expertise ensure the best path for your growth is cultivated.
Vanessa is knowledgeable and confident in many topics affecting both individuals and couples which makes her services so comprehensive.
After our experience with Vanessa I would never seek another therapist for couples or individuals therapy. The results have been astonishing and speak for themselves and the support, care and attentiveness Vanessa gives is unrivalled.
We would highly recommend choosing Vanessa.
Thank you for everything!

Vanessa Guidry is an outstanding therapist. She listens, focuses on the issues and strives to help clients seek resolution with their issues. She is great at connecting and skilled in her profession. In my experience, I know after each session the impact of the time spent. I greatly appreciate Vanessa and recommend having her in your corner.
