    Vanessa Ocampo, Therapist, Inner Courage Counseling

    Vannesa earned a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lewis University in 2019. Vannesa specializes in working with children, adolescents, young adults, and families dealing with a variety of concerns such as ADHD, anxiety, self-esteem, grief, depression, parenting, and trauma.

    Hello, my name is Vannesa (pronouns: she/her/hers). I understand that taking the first step of addressing your mental health can be a very daunting and scary action to take. But it does not always need to be that way. I believe that working collaboratively with clients is one of the most important aspects of therapy. Together, we can explore the best ways to address the issues that are impacting you. I want to help you identify your strengths and build on them, while learning coping skills and useful interventions along the way. A strong aspect of my approach to therapy is incorporating psychoeducation as it can help provide a sense of understanding why you are experiencing the struggles that you are and how what we will be working on can help you overcome them, especially when working with children and teens. I also believe in utilizing an eclectic approach to treatment with principles based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Play therapy, and Person-Centered therapy styles. I look forward to the work I can do alongside you on your journey to a happy and healthy mindset where you feel you have control over your mental health.
