Meet To Go Counseling

Meet To Go Counseling


I have been a Mental Health Counselor since 2011. My appetite for helping children and families began in the early 80’s working with parents and at-risk adolescents from various inner-city communities in Cuyahoga County. However, I moved on and spent many years working in a myriad of capacities within various corporations. Now I have come full circle being drawn back to working with people, servicing communities and culturally diverse individuals as a counselor.


I believe people want to feel heard.  I am patient and a good listener. I have a commitment and passion for working with underserved populations particularly those with substance abuse needs. I strive to collaborate with clients to assist them with developing tools necessary to succeed as the experts on their lives utilizing evidenced-based practice therapeutic approaches.  I have provided counseling services in residential, outpatient, and court arenas.


After achieving the academic requirements necessary to become a counselor, a respected colleague said to me “now throw away the books and go help people.” Inasmuch as knowledge is power, as a Counselor I believe helping to empower individuals to achieve desired outcomes is more powerful.

Tom About Vanessa

I am stupid excited Vanessa has opted to join us. While she is much cheerier and happier than I tend to be there really is a sense of sympatico where it really counts. Her tangible excitement to be helpful to someone, her irritation at the many ways our field seems to miss the mark and even worse at times to not care, her desire to keep on growing and learning to hit the mark more often, her willingness to do what it takes to make a difference guarantee she will be a positive force for our clients and our team. She brings unique talents, experiences, and gifts I continue to look forward to stealing from at every opportunity.
