Vanessa Hooper, LMHC, MEd, MA
As a multicultural therapist, I help individuals and couples recognize how institutions of power, environment, family dynamics and personal histories influence and shape identity, values and decision making. Through our work together, clients are supported to identify and challenge narratives negatively impacting their life, to uncover their path for transformation. I works with individuals and couples of all identities and relationship types, who are wanting a change and a desire to deepen their understanding of one another, work through trauma, explore setbacks in their relationships, and build a safe space for liberation, empowerment, and connection. Using a trauma-informed, social justice approach clients and couples feel seen and heard, allowing for a safe place to revisit trauma, address conflict, confront betrayal and process life transitions.

The path to healing can come with significant fear and uncertainty. For those interested in exploring the depths of psychedelics as tools for transformation, working with a therapist can help to wade through the unpredictability and move to a place of resilience and meaning. I offer support to help people prepare before and after consumption of psychedelic substances. The powerful transpersonal journeys, can open up old wounds as well as the re-emergence of trauma. My intention is to create a safe space for you to make meaning from your journey and the symbolism that comes forward. Our work together is meant to enhance your pre and post-psychedelic experience and guide you to reach for your therapeutic dreams.
