My name is Vennessia Jimenez, and I am a Latina therapist in Strasburg, CO. I have a BSW from Colorado State University and a master’s in clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Phoenix. In addition, I hold a certification with NBCC as a National Board-Certified Counselor and have a license with the State of Colorado as a professional counselor.
Most of my career has been in healthcare navigating systems, advocating for patient needs, partnering with many local organizations to help provide clients with continuity of care. In addition to supporting clients with lifestyle changes that improve overall mental well-being. I have learned how multiple factors contribute to depression, anxiety, or lifestyle choices. I teach clients to practice mindfulness, learn distress tolerance skills, improve their interpersonal relationships, and decrease stress by using CBT/DBT modalities. I am integrative in my approach to care by utilizing a variety of techniques that are both collaborative, strengths based, and person centered. My practice is based on helping people to identify the root cause of their problem and help them achieve the best outcome for a successful future. By teaching positive coping skills, building upon strengths, and learning to practice mindfulness, individuals can achieve a positive outlook on life.
I provide a safe space that is free of judgement. A place where you can express your unique self and reach out for help when needed. Through supportive care individuals will learn to increase self-awareness and empower change. My journey is built on a personal story that provided me with my own saving grace. I was taught the virtue of humility, and patience. People deserve a second chance to improve upon themselves. Through my practice, you will receive caring services that are geared toward personal growth, goal development, and an improved sense of well-being. I am a fierce advocate and strive to provide the best quality mental health care for those in need.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoying volunteer work and giving back to my community. I am a coach with Strasburg Parks and Recreation and the Vice Chair of the DAC committee for Strasburg school district. I love camping, fishing, and being outdoors in the summer.
