Vanessa De La Cruz, LAC
I graduated from the U of A with a Bachelors degree in Psychology and my Masters degree is in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, focus on mental health and rehabilitation counseling.
My number one goal as a therapist is to provide my clients with a safe space to heal. My primary focus is on providing individualized treatment for each of my clients. I have experience in CBT, DBT, mindfulness based practices, trauma informed care, motivational interviewing, addiction, and family therapy. For the past 5 years I have specialized in helping adolescents and young adults navigate their mental health issues. Whether it be depression or substance abuse, I am here to help by providing the necessary coping skills to aid clients in moving past obstacles that may be holding them back. My approach tends to lean towards a solution focused team based collaboration in which my clients and I determine which modality of therapy they feel most comfortable with. Therapy is not a “one size fits all” and I do my best to ensure each of my clients receives the best care depending on their individual needs. Engaging in the therapeutic process is a personal journey and I am honored to help my clients transform into the best version of themselves.
