VANNESA OCAMPO, MA
What makes me different:
My goal is to help children learn about mental health and build skills early to help them as they continue to grow.
Education: Masters of Clinical Counseling, Lewis University, 2019
CPR/AED/First Aid Certified (Pediatrics and Adult)
I use my knowledge of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Play Based Therapy Techniques to address anxiety, ADHD, and family dynamics.
“Underneath my outside face, there is a face that no one can see.” -Shel Silverstein
I characterize myself as creative, supportive, and collaborative. Outside of counseling I enjoy multiple creative outlets, such as drawing, painting, and photography. I like traveling to new places and going on adventures, such as underground river snorkeling and ziplining.
I have 11 years of experience working with children across multiple settings and have a knack for building rapport with children that allows for the therapeutic relationship to thrive. Working with children in multiple settings has allowed me to assist in making the sometimes abstract concepts related to mental health make sense.
