Vanessa is INCREDIBLE! My fiance and I were about to call of our engagement, but in talking with her, we found a solution and we have been better than ever. If it wasn't for Vanessa, I don't think we would be together. She has been an angel and we are both honestly so thankful for her advice and guidance. She is very caring and thoughtful. She makes light out of dark situations, and provides guidance when we need it the most. She also always checks in every few days which shows me that she really does care. I am so thankful for Vanessa. She really has changed our lives. We couldn't recommend Vanessa even more. Her happy, energetic, warm-hearted spirit is one that is hard to find in a person, let alone a therapist. Trust me, you won't be disappointed in the therapy you will receive from Vanessa. Love her!!

I feel that Vanessa is very attentive to the concerns/issues affecting me and my spouse. Her positive engagement during sessions, as well as chat in-between sessions, never lets me feel as though we are out of touch with her.
