Veda Wise




Patience and Understanding… I am continually fueled by a natural inclination to empower others in their pursuit for change.  My motivation is ignited by the personal experiences that have tested and proven the effectiveness of what I have learned.   This is what enhanced my patience and understanding. Discovering the New You… I believe that everyone has a hidden treasure.  My role is to provide support during this discovery.  Beginning with simplicity, my initial goal, is to align my undivided attention to you.  This process involves compassionately listening, canceling out thoughts associated with assumptions and debilitating judgement.  This promotes an intentional awareness of individual and circumstantial uniqueness. My professional preparation involved the completion of the Master of Social Work program at Cleveland State University and the acquiring of the LSW licensure. There were two professional experiences that helped crystalize my focus.  One was responding to emergency on - call requests to support sexual assault survivors. The second experience involved working at a men’s homeless crisis shelter.  Some of the concerns included sexual abuse; (survivors & perpetrators), PTSD, Addiction, Anger Management, Anxiety, Depression, Stress Management, Self-Harming/ Suicidal, LGBTQIA and overall Trauma. Some of the treatment modalities utilized were Client Centered, DBT/ Dialectical Behavioral Theory & Motivational Interviewing.  I would love to walk with you as you continue your journey to establish peace and joy, so that you can go on to have an emotionally fulfilling life. Scripture: Philippians 4:13 NIV I [You] can do all things through Christ who gives me [you] the strength.
