Vanessa H. Roddenberry

Psychologist, PhD, HSP-P

One of the bravest things you can do is to own your story but not be defined by it. If you're ready to start writing an exciting next chapter in your life, contact me today to learn how to keep the past from getting in your way. I'm a doctoral level clinical psychologist offering psychotherapy to adult clients with a wide range of mood, behavioral, and relationship issues at Breyta Psychological Services. I can help change the way you relate to problems in your life, build psychological flexibility, and foster a deep sense of self-compassion. While we can't change the past, together we can change your future.

I'm a trauma specialist, so if you find yourself struggling to bounce back from a major life event that seems to have turned everything upside down I can help. If you're experiencing anxiety, insomnia, PTSD, depression, chronic pain, or relationship problems, I can provide cutting edge treatments and tools that can get you back on track quickly.

I practice Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which integrates mindfulness with meaningful behavioral change. I help you be present, resilient, and functional by identifying your strengths and courage to act on them. We can't stop waves in life's ocean, but I can help you learn how to surf. You can make amazing changes happen with help and a good plan.
