Entering psychotherapy can provide and rich and healing journey of understanding of yourself and moving past stuck places right now and from times earlier in your life. I am delighted to be your guide in this powerful process that can get you through old trauma, gently move you forward from belefs and behaviors that feel toxic or unnatural to your mind and body, and bring your thoughts, emotions and physical self into a healthier place. Some individuals benefit from discovering origins of where their struggles came from, understanding and clearing that, and others get a lot out of adding ways of moving in new directions inside and outside right here and now. Relief can be enjoyed!

I approach psychotherapy as a collaborative process between therapist and client in which you will gain insight into your inner truth and engage your own innate healing capacity. Together we will explore and honor the amazing inner landscape that makes you uniquely you. If past trauma or difficult childhood experiences are impacting your life today, I can help you transcend your past and engage more joyfully in your present life. I offer a safe, respectful, compassionate place to discover and resolve whatever is holding you back from the authentic life you so want and deserve.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Psychotherapist specializing in therapy for couples, individual adults and adolescents. I practice Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which encourages clients to challenge the thoughts, beliefs and assumptions they hold about the world around them. CBT teaches clients that they can be more active in choosing how they will respond to life. Clients are encouraged to look at their current behaviors and change the ones that are not benefitting them. Clients become more empowered and take control of their lives. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy can help put you back in the drivers seat and provide you with the tools you need to accomplish your goals.

I help clients find strengths and ways to manage difficult or challenging situations. I also help clients with histories of trauma and abuse come to terms with difficult memories, turning ghosts into ancestors. Ghosts scare us. Ancestors we remember, but they don't have the power to terrify us. Life provides many challenges that anyone can struggle with, whether it is a traumatic experience or a life long struggle to overcome anxieties, worries and depression. We all live in relationships and can learn so much about our strengths, challenges and possibilities. I would be happy to help you with understanding your relationships from a positive and strength based perspective.

In order for therapy to be effective, you'll need to have a strong desire to improve your life and be as open as you can be in sharing your hurt and struggles. Therapy helps you overcome your problems and move forward in your life. It enables you to get in touch with the deeper parts of yourself so that you trust yourself and others more. Therapy empowers you to be better able to recognize your strengths and build upon them. As you progress in therapy, you'll be more accepting of life's challenges and become more resilient to future stresses. Counselling Approaches I have an integrative approach to counselling, focusing on humanistic, attachment, and family systems theories.

In psychotherapy, the therapist and the client build a unique relationship. Like most positive relationships, it is centered on caring and trust. Unlike other relationships, this one exists solely to meet the needs of the client. It can be very helpful to talk with friends and family when you’re struggling, but friends and family have a vested interest in the outcome of your struggles. They are familiar with who you are, so it is usually uncomfortable for them if you change, even when the change is positive and needed. As an unbiased professional, your therapist focuses on what is best for you, whether it is making big changes, small changes, or no changes.

Vanessa Hughes, MA, SEP

Alternative and Integrated Practitioner

Available for Online Therapy

I work with an entire person--the mind, emotions, body, spirit, relationships. I offer an alternative approach to traditional psychotherapy because sometimes we are stuck beyond our thoughts. I believe we are often stuck beyond how we think about something, but by how our body holds and remembers the experiences. After all, we feel the anxiety in our chest, shoulders or stomach. When we are depressed, we struggle to move, sleep, concentrate etc. I work to remove the block from wherever it is stuck. My clients come to me after years of ineffective therapy. They are looking for more than talking about their struggles or identifying how they think about them in favor of a change in living.

What is psychotherapy? It is a space that supports you in working through the pressures of anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship struggles, work/life stress, and even to explore life enhancement and goal achievements. It is a judgement free place where someone listens, gives you space to tell your truth, seeks to understands what you are going through and is specially equipped to support you with processes to move you beyond these challenges.

In laymen's terms, psychotherapy is the opportunity to talk about and process your problems or challenges with a trained therapist. Sometimes, we don't need someone to try to fix our problems for us, which is what most of our friends try to do when we talk about them. Sometimes we need someone who will listen and be a sounding board so we can think through and process for ourselves. I want to support you with your goals and your needs and we can make a therapy plan (psychotherapy or other types) that you feel will best suit your needs. Most importantly, I provide that safe environment for you to be able to be vulnerable, talk about, and process whatever is on your heart and in your mind.

You don't need to do it all alone. And turns out, as more and more brain research is showing us, you're not meant to. Many of our original wounds, with echoes in our current lives, come from past and often early relationships. And while there are many valuable paths to healing, psychotherapy provides a special safe relationship in which these past experiences can be rewired and new aspects of yourself can be discovered or rediscovered. With compassionate reflection, encouragement, and challenge, transformation can happen!

Psychotherapy is a process of entering into a trusting, confidential relationship with a professionally trained therapist to explore your inner and outer conflicts, anxieties, relationship problems and traumas of all kinds, big and small. We all carry around inner voices and experiences from our childhood and youth, as well as from experiences in adulthood, which we are unaware of but have a big impact on our experience of self, other and Life itself. Psychotherapy is a safe place to sort it out and develop more sense of self-confidence, choice and strength. You should feel free to try different therapists and kind of therapy to see what feels right to you and trust your intuition.

In my practice I work with children, teens and their families to help them overcome what sometimes is debilitating emotional distress. Whether it's issues around ADHD, Adoption, Anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorders, or Depression, I work with a number of modalities like art, play and sand play therapy to help the children communicate and learn about the emotions behind their behavior. In a place and time that is only for them, they learn to trust as they learn tools that will eventually help them lead happy and capable lives. I also work with children in groups and with individual adults.

Psychotherapy is a practice that dates back to prehistory. It is a special relationship and pattern of human experience that started when humans began living together in close communities and sought healing and counseling from particular members of the community. Out of respect for the ancient roots of my profession, I combine the wisdom of ancient healing practices with modern modes of psychotherapy. These methods have been used for thousands of years and have recently been proven to work studies in both medicine and psychology.

Many clients have reported that their past therapists have just "sat there and listened" without offering any advice of value. While we all need a sounding board and time to tell our story, many clients are interested in their therapists' feedback. When and where appropriate, I am willing to offer my thoughts and experience to my clients. It is through building a healthy, authentic relationship with our therapists that enables us to use this as a model for our other significant relationships. Psychotherapy is the perfect place to begin (or continue) this process.

Are you noticing a vague sense of inner angst that just doesn't go away, despite your best intentions? Are you noticing the same patterns or cycles with yourself or with relationships that leave you feeling sad, angry, worried, depressed, or hurt? So often we notice that a part of us is off kilter, but without the tools and support to change, we tend to end up in the same negative patterns again and again, despite our desire to change. By offering specific specific tools for inner work and outer relationships, together we can help you move to a place of feeling empowered and at peace within.

Available for Online Therapy

My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative in that I work with my clients to unearth dysfunctional patterns of behaving or relating that are keeping them from the fulfilling lives and/or relationships they seek. As a solutions-focused psychotherapist I use complementary therapy approaches and techniques to teach clients new skills, increase understanding and insight, and build healthier lifestyle habits that are customized to address their unique therapy goals. My clients are encouraged to practice these new behaviors and ways of thinking between sessions so that the changes they make through our work together produce more satisfying and fulfilling lives.
