"I want to assist you in examining why you feel like your life is not where you think or sense it should be. Why you have a nagging feeling that perhaps you're wasting time and not living your life in a more deep and fulfilling manner. You may think you're “not good enough,” or “if only this would have/not have happened," life would be different. The activities you do feel banal, going to work/school is dreadful, relationships and family are difficult, and the values and beliefs that once held you have lost their ground. You feel lonely, depressed, anxious, and perhaps substance use is worsening. You’re wondering about doing therapy."

"Hi, I’m Veronica, and my passion and dedication to this work lies in the idea that asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Everyone will experience some frictions or challenges at some point in their life and need support. I feel called to be an empathic guide to people during such times. I work somatically and relationally, meaning I hold that the mind and body are intrinsically connected. I welcome clients to tell their stories, histories, and important aspects of their life. I also invite them to become aware of how they feel as they are sharing with me by tuning into their bodies."

Over the past decade, I've come to learn again and again that there's a legitimate reason why we don't move forward to fulfillment. Instead we cycle in discomfort, anxiety, sadness, fear, mistrust, etc. Once you really understand what is causing the discomfort (or that feeling of being stuck), lasting change can occur. This process is unique for each person. I'd love to help you."
