Get to know dr. vanessa j. allen
I believe that some therapists are born and some are made. I was born a therapist. Providing mental health services is an answer to a call. It is my “purpose”. I am personable, relatable, empathetic and understanding. I am a nurturer. Via education, I have been able to combine my natural ability to connect with people with my clinical training to create a dynamic clinical approach to helping people.
I bring more than 25 years of service, creative thought, a sense of humor and life experiences to my practice. Together with my client(s), we will create a welcoming safe and comfortable environment to discuss and work through life and life experiences. I utilize a solution and strengths based approach when working with individuals and families and I specialize in working with adolescents, adults, and couples. I believe that most of us have what we need to solve our issues internally and having a professional to guide us through identifying that solution is what successful therapeutic relationships are about. I am skilled in working with symptoms of anxiety, depression, mood disorders and trauma, I am ready to assist my clients with positive outcomes and symptom alleviation.
