Veronica combines her warm personality and strong clinical skills to help clients of all ages overcome problems and achieve stronger mental health.

She gained experienced working with couples, families and individuals, adults, children and teens at a counseling center for transition and loss and working at a community based mental health agency.
Veronica especially enjoys working with teens and has done so extensively for the past several years. Many of the teens she has seen have come for poor academic success, self-harming, anxiety about their future and family problems. She has had the great privilege to see these unique people gain insight into their authentic self and go forward to become happy healthy people.
