My Approach to Helping

Do you feel anxious, stressed and overwhelmed? Going through a divorce or the challenges of dating? Need help navigating through challenging transitions or healing from trauma? Assistance in learning skills to manage and decrease anxiety, perfectionism and stress or improve your relationships with others? Want to invest in personal growth? Maybe I can help.

Hi. I am Vanja Buckley, a therapist with a passion for emotional wellness, self-discovery, empowerment and social justice. As a therapist, I embrace individuality, acceptance, compassion, and curiosity and believe that each person has the right to choose and defend their own beliefs, identity and life. Investing in yourself can be the most rewarding process one can experience because personal growth leads to improvement in all areas of life. Humans are imperfect, flawed, unique and beautiful and their capacity is limitless.

I specialize in working with people who are seeking help in managing stress, perfectionism and anxiety more effectively, regulating emotions, boosting self-worth, improving communication and relationships, investing in personal growth and development and making changes that lead to significant progress, growth and transformation.

More Info About My Practice

I provide a warm, welcoming environment for you to feel safe to explore your thoughts and feelings. I have received extensive training in several evidence based practice models including CBT, DBT, MI and EMDR and my approach incorporates a variety of tools and strategies to help you boost your confidence and self-esteem, decrease stress and painful emotions, manage anxiety and perfectionism, improve relationships, reprocess traumatic experiences and make changes that lead to significant progress and transformation in your life! I believe that the key elements of healing are establishing a therapeutic relationship based on safety and trust, enhancing self-awareness, exploring limiting beliefs and behaviors, incorporating mindfulness skills, and developing strategies for making appropriate behavioral changes in order to achieve healing, growth and recovery. Through personal experiences, I learned that the other side of painful, life altering experiences can be filled with resilience, positivity and joy.
