About

(

)
I specialize in holistically treating anxiety, social anxiety, low self esteem, depression, grief, and existential issues such as finding purpose and meaning. My mission is to help clients transform pain into an opportunity for self-discovery, healing and empowerment, to ultimately reclaim their voice, purpose, and self-worth. I compassionately welcome individuals who feel silenced, disconnected from loved ones, overwhelmed, lost, or that they "don't belong," as well as people who have experienced bullying, emotional or physical abuse, or struggle with negative body image or a harsh inner critic.
I welcome diversity of all kinds. I'm multicultural and understand the complexities that arise with many identities. I'm also a musician, and enjoy helping individuals access their unique artistic and creative potential, whether through the arts or by embodying their truest expression of Self in everyday life.
I offer practical tools as well as deeper emotional healing to promote lasting change. My approach is compassionate, relational, holistic, and grounded in Gestalt, Emotion Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Transpersonal Psychology, mindfulness, and neurological research. Proveo terapia en español. Book a free consultation via my website.
Me especializo en el tratamiento holístico de la ansiedad social, la depresión, la imagen corporal negativa, la baja autoestima, trauma, problemas existenciales, y problemas de relación. Mi misión es ayudar a mis clientes a transformar el dolor en una oportunidad de autodescubrimiento, curación y empoderamiento, para finalmente reclamar su voz, propósito y autoestima. Con compasión, recibo a individuales que se sienten perdidos, silenciados, desconectados de sus seres queridos, abrumados, que "no pertenecen", o que han sufrido acoso escolar, abuso emocional o físico.
Invito la diversidad de todo tipo. Soy multicultural y entiendo las complejidades que surgen de identidades múltiples. También soy música, y disfruto en ayudar a las personas a acceder a su expresión más auténtica vaya ser en las artes o en la vida diaria.
Además de la curación emocional, ofrezco herramientas prácticas para promover un cambio duradero. Mi enfoque es compasivo, relacional, holístico y se basa en la terapia Gestalt, la terapia centrada en las emociones, la terapia de aceptación y compromiso, la psicología transpersonal y la ciencia neurológica.

Vanessa Wolter's Groups

Social Anxiety, Sensitivity, & Shyness Group

We have created this Social Anxiety, Sensitivity, & Shyness Group in the hopes of taking you on a unique journey of observation, exploration, and experimentation that will help you develop a new more adaptive relationship between your anxiety and your authentic self. Through the lens of Transpersonal Psychology, Psychosynthesis, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Expressive Arts Therapy, and Gestalt, we will discover new things about ourselves and this fear of disapproval and overarousal that we all share in common. This is a holistic, integrative 10-week series. Email for more info.
