Welcome to My Website

I hope this will give you a clear idea of who I am and how I work with clients in my practice.

After over 25 years as a therapist and coach I continue to be awed by the lasting changes I see people make in their lives. The decision to enter counseling is a big step and I take that seriously. It is very important to me that my clients not only achieve their therapeutic goals but gain tools they will use in the future.

My approach is interactive, respectful and down-to-earth. When we meet, I will listen carefully, help you clarify your feelings and help you figure out what you can do to make your situation better. We will form specific, achievable goals and our work will be about attaining those goals.

I work with adult individuals and couples and use both long-term and short-term therapy. I also provide coaching when appropriate. My specialties include:

  • Relationship and dating issues
  • Marital problems, infidelity
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Depression
  • Work and career issues
  • Parenting and adoption
  • Improving nutrition and drinking habits
  • Attention issues

I have been trained in many therapeutic modalities over the years and have pulled together what I have found to be the most effective methods to create change. Feel free to explore this website, where I describe my work in more detail. I offer a free 20-minute telephone consultation.

You may contact me at vickievann@comcast.net or 415.979.8183. I look forward to speaking with you soon!
