These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Venessa Ellington Alston. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
Vanessa is amazing at helping my teen daughter deal with life's challenges. My daughter had a friend who drained the life out of her with her drama and suicidal threats. Vanessa helped her navigate dealing with this toxic relationship and helped her see this was not a healthy friendship.
I love the relationship they developed and Vanessa keeping me in the loop on progress and concerns when needed.
I have recommended teen counseling several times and will keep recommending it. The ease of scheduling and having evening video appointments was key to getting an active teen the help she needed.
Venessa is compassionate, understanding, and helpful. I highly recommend working with her!
I have had a great experience with Venessa
Vanessa was a great listener and was able to gently get to the point of something without coming off intrusive. She is great at following up and reaching out.
Venessa offers useful tools and resources for dealing with life stressors that can be applied to my day to day experiences. Her knowledge and ability to help me get to the root of specific issues is very beneficial during each session.

Vanessa does a great good listening to me and connecting with me
She's the best. Kind and attentive.
She is great!
Venessa is a wonderfully supportive therapist who offers amazing insights and directions forward.
She has provided me with a safe and supported space that I can be authentic with my feelings and free of judgment. I look forward to learning more from her.
She makes it a very comfortable environment. She doesn’t give you that judging feeling and she actually hears you out and sympathizes with you. She’s also very helpful in breaking down the problem and finding a solution that fits for you. She always asks for consent which is nice for someone who struggles with being controlled. 100% recommend
Venessa has been kind and helpful as I go through a difficult time in my life. I recommend her to anyone who needs a kind and sympathetic soul and who would like to work towards improving their mental health.
