Hi I'm Vanessa. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) at Foresight San Diego College East. I received my Master's Degree in Social Work from San Diego State University. I have 6 years experience working in the addiction treatment field and I am a strong advocate for 12 step recovery and spiritual healing. I have experience working with adults utilizing interventions such as cognitive behavioral therapy and humanistic therapy. I am passionate about supporting others in their healing journey through embodiment work and other expressive arts practices. I bring my experience as a Certified Dancing Mindfulness facilitator and RESET Breathwork Facilitator into my work with others. I enjoy supporting others in tapping into their strengths and accessing their inner wisdom so that they can live their most fulfilling life. My specialty areas include addiction and recovery, healing from depression, building positive self-esteem and incorporating healthy coping skills into the daily routine. I approach my work with others from from an open, trauma-informed and client-centered perspective and I bring empathy, genuine connection and empowerment into the space.
