Veronica Green, MA, RMHCI
Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern
When the world can seem so harsh, sometimes we overlook the good in others. As a Correctional Officer, I realized that those who presented as defiant were people hurting. Without tools to manage their emotions or change their circumstances, we can’t see beyond their behaviors. Something inside me was called to do more to help people overcome their pain.
It is not common in the Hispanic community to become a Mental Health Counselor, but I returned to school. Concurrently, I enlisted in the Army and became a First-line Supervisor/Unit Prevention Leader. Combined, these experiences allowed me to develop my skills to better meet the needs of the clients.
Collaboratively, I work with you to relieve the pressure to “fix” the broken path. We focus the light on what can and cannot be changed, reframing your situation, and taking steps towards your goals to build a new path.
Since I focus on trauma and PTSD, I earned a certification in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). ART is a short-term, evidenced-based, rapid-eye-movement treatment to reduce physiological responses and increase coping for a variety of concerns.
Additionally, I am trained in CBT, ACT, and Motivational Interviewing. Treatment plans are based on the your needs and presenting concerns such as depression, anxiety, anger, behavioral concerns, relationship problems, substance abuse and addiction, grief, or setting healthy boundaries. Because of my military background, I have specialized experience with active duty military, veterans, and their families.
I look forward to working with you and guiding you on your path!
Outside of being a therapist, I enjoy being outdoors, bowling, and spending time with family. I understand and read Spanish, but I am continually working on my conversational skills. Feel free to test my skills!
