ABOUT DR. VANN

 

In therapy, I work to build a safe therapeutic environment where I can best understand a client’s perspective and unique experiences. Emphasis is placed on building trust and authenticity in the therapeutic relationship. I work directly with clients to create meaningful and successful plans for progress and growth. Change is achieved through consideration of the past, while maintaining a focus on the present and working to understand how these experiences impact current concerns.

 

I have extensive experience helping people make positive change in their lives. This has included working with community agencies, schools, hospitals and clinics. Through this work, I have developed an integrative approach to helping people find the change they seek. This often incorporates Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral, Humanistic and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, including approaches from different orientations that complement each other in ways that most benefit the client.
