Student Intern

Hi and welcome! My name is Vanessa Richardson,

I am a student intern who brings compassion and sincerity to the therapeutic process. My professional background includes working with individuals, families, special education population, extensive experience working with high-risk youth and families building upon their natural support along with individuals and youth from all different walks of life.

I gained my experience in the clinical field working in a high-school setting, and community mental health outreach program. I am in the process of finishing my Clinical Mental Health degree from Capella University. In 2019, I completed my certificate in Contemporary Mental Health and received my undergraduate degree from Boise State University majoring in Psychology in 2015.

I approach my profession with a client-centered, strength based therapeutic process supporting the individual’s journey with seeking a counselor. I utilize a person-centered approach to counseling, which means that my clients are the experts in their own life, and in my office. I use emotionally-focused techniques to help identify prominent patterns in your life, and assist in creating a new experience within the session to change these patterns into more positive experiences.

As a therapist, I am committed to providing a space that is welcoming, respectful and supportive of the individual and myself along this path learning from each other, to support the client and my skills as a therapist.
