Vanessa sees adolescents and adults in Como and West-Perth
I am an experienced, compassionate and empathic clinical psychologist, specialising in adolescent and adult mental health. I am skilled at working with individuals from the age of 15 years onwards, and I employ a diverse range of therapeutic approaches to tailor treatment to your specific needs.
I am skilled at addressing a broad spectrum of presenting issues, ranging from anxiety and depression to relationship challenges, trauma, and self-esteem concerns. Utilising evidence-based approaches, including cognitive-behavioural therapy, schema therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness practices, and solution-focused therapy, I aim to provide a safe and nonjudgmental space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. With a focus on building resilience and enhancing coping strategies, I take a collaborative person-centred approach to assist and support you through difficult times and help you build the skills you need to improve your emotional wellbeing.
