Vanessa Lorant, LPC-A
Clinical Therapist

Vanessa Lorant is a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPC-A) who has experience working with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, PTSD, and much more. Her story begins with her obtaining a Master’s in Professional Counseling in 2021 at Amberton University. She is currently obtaining her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at North Central University. During Vanessa’s educational career, she conducted her internship at Children First Counseling Center (a non-profit organization that focused on helping low-income families). Goals are important in therapy — with clients taking the responsibility for putting their plan into action, Vanessa is there to help determine what that plan is. With each unique client comes a unique way of conducting therapy. Vanessa focuses her theoretical orientation on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). These two orientations focus not only on the way we think but the way we act upon those thoughts. Vanessa likes to implement mindfulness techniques as she understands that feeling stuck in one’s mind can feel scary. Vanessa works with clients aged 3-65+. Vanessa has a gift to be able to work with such a wide range of populations and understand each unique client. Therapy can be a hard step to take. With doing so comes obstacles that many are not aware of. As someone who believes that everyone, even counselors themselves, should seek therapy at least once in their lives, Vanessa understands that it is a new adventure that may need more assistance in finding the right path.
