Currently accepting new clients at A Place of Growth. Welcome, my name is Vanessa Villasenor and I am a bilingual Spanish-speaking therapist who has experience providing child, teen and adult therapy in San Diego. The first goal will be to create a safe and comfortable counseling environment to and it is important to find a therapist that will work with you and whom you feel comfortable with in order to make the most progress. I provide a variety of counseling environments and styles to address your needs and have experience working with military families including both active duty members as well as their family members.
I use evidence-based practices including mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, play therapy, behavior modification, and trauma therapy when providing therapy. I work with individuals who struggle with depression & mood disorders, anxiety, childhood trauma & post-traumatic stress disorder, life transitions, military life, relational challenges and more.
The ultimate goal is to help you identify and overcome your obstacles so you can better adapt to change and live a happier, more balanced life. There is no right speed at which to proceed with one's healing. We strive to schedule all new clients within one week of contacting us so please visit our website for even more information.
Bienvenido, me llamo Vanessa Villasenor y soy una terapeuta bilingüe que habla español y que tiene experiencia en brindar terapia de niños, adolescentes y adultos en San Diego. El primer objetivo será crear un entorno de asesoramiento seguro y cómodo para avanzar hacia sus objetivos para la terapia. Es importante encontrar un terapeuta que trabaje con usted y con el que se sienta cómodo para poder progresar al máximo en la terapia. Proporciono una variedad de entornos y estilos de asesoramiento para satisfacer sus necesidades y tengo experiencia en el trabajo con familias militares.
Utilizo prácticas basadas en la evidencia que incluyen atención plena, terapia cognitivo-conductual, terapia de juego, modificación de la conducta y terapia de trauma cuando proporciono terapia. Trabajo con personas que luchan contra la depresión y los trastornos del estado de ánimo, la ansiedad, el trauma infantil y el trastorno de estrés postraumático.
El objetivo final es ayudarlo a identificar y superar sus obstáculos para que pueda adaptarse mejor al cambio y vivir una vida más feliz y equilibrada. No hay una velocidad correcta a la que proceder con la curación. Nos esforzamos por programar a todos los nuevos clientes dentro de una semana de contactar nos para empezar terapia
