Is your relationship struggling with communication or trust issues? Are you disagreeing more than your getting along? From time to time we all experience challenges, strains or transitions in our relationships. Couples counseling provides you the opportunity to explore communication patterns, look at what's working and what’s not, learn more effective ways to communicate your needs, and provides opportunities to discover how you may begin to rebuild your relationship and move forward. I'm here to help. If you want to talk through life's challenges, find your direction or you desire to make a positive change I would love to connect with you. In my years of practice there are a few things I know; change can be difficult, addiction can be overcome and hearts can heal from deep wounds that can sometimes leave a scar. With the right people by your side healing is always possible.
I have over seven years’ experience providing counseling and over 16 years’ experience in mental health and substance use settings. I have experience working in inpatient settings, outpatient practice clinics, with crisis response teams and residential settings based out of San Antonio Texas and surrounding counties. I primary work with adults and seniors but also enjoy working with adolescents. My preferred treatment modalities include CBT, DBT, TF-CBT, and Motivational Interviewing, Grief and Loss work, Solution Focused and Narrative Therapy.
My specialties include working with individuals wanting to process: grief and loss, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, abuse, family issues, relationship issues, trauma, career issues, personality disorders, life transitions, anger management, medical issues, self-esteem, emotional issues, suicidality and substance use.
If you’re considering connecting with someone I’m here to help. Thank you for considering me as your therapist.

Vanessa is very attentive and responsive. She is proactive, direct, and understanding.
Vanessa has been extremely accessible and has gone above and beyond to help both me and my husband. It is clear that she is knowledgeable and seeks further knowledge to be relevant to our concerns and problems! I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking counseling.
