A Therapist That Has All the Best Qualities
“Veronica Foster helped me throughout the good and bad times in my life because she was consistent, kind, and well educated/knowledgeable, authentic, relatable, and honest.
First off, there were times that I didn’t want to go to therapy or talk and she would always have a different solution or something else she could teach me/talk about.
Additionally, I admired Veronica because she was real with me. She didn’t give me any b.s. answers or questions to try to get out of the situation. One can easily tell that she knows herself well and has overcome personal challenges; she is a strong character.
Furthermore, Veronica always knew what to say and how to say it when I was thinking something or didn’t know how to fix a problem. When I needed to hear the hard truth, she knew how to deliver it and how to work around a problem I was facing.
I always knew how much Veronica cared about me. She would never forget to call or follow up if we weren’t meeting or if we were taking a break. I built an authentic relationship with her, which helped me feel supported and loved.
I strongly recommend seeing Veronica as a therapist. She knows how to read people and encourage them to change their lives for the better. She was always there for me and ready to dig deep and uncover my past pains. It can be difficult to find therapists that have all these qualities, yet Veronica showcases them all because of her authenticity, knowledge, commitment, passion, and honesty.”

Looking Fear in the Face
“When I first came to Veronica, I was in a terrible state. Everything that could have gone wrong in my life had done so and I was an anxiety-ridden mess! Meeting with Veronica, once a week for the last 18 months, has slowly restored my self-confidence and helped me get rid of crippling anxiety. As important as that is, there is something even more valuable that Veronica has taught me and that is to not live my life “in fear” of what is about to happen. Through Veronica’s counseling I have learned to look fear squarely in the face, and deal with the problem on hand with a well thought out plan and if that doesn’t work try again and look for different answers. I have recommended Veronica Foster to many of my friends…my special gift to them as I know they will come out stronger after being in Veronica’s care!”
The Gift of Control of Emotional Life
Dear loved one,
What a year it was, and what a year it might have been if it were not for Veronica. I remember early on in our sessions, I looked out the window and I bemoaned about how I could not figure how I would be able to survive in this foreign place of Mountain View for a year. Eventually with Veronica’s help I was able to do much more than that, and I found great happiness there. To this day I think of my year in the Peninsula as one of the best years of my life, and I fully believe that that would not have been possible without Veronica. I had last-minute deferred from university, and though I did not know it at the time, it was to let my life fall apart. I realized the magic of that alongside Veronica. She did not prod at me with the sort of typical format rigid questions that had so bothered me before. I never felt locked into anything; Veronica was fastidious creating a comfortable yet rich conversation. I actively looked forward to every meeting with her. They were not sessions so much as conversations with a professional who not let that impede a personal connection and consequently my personal recovery. Veronica encouraged numerous mental exercises, both meditative and rigorous, that stimulated and helped develop new patterns of thinking. Through considerate prompting Veronica gifted me a new means of control over my emotional life. I firmly believe that I was as responsive as I was to my treatment because of the way that Veronica made herself feel like a confidant. To me this means that she was more than a psychologist that promised confidentiality, through ungiving patience, thoughtful and individual questions, and challenging me. I felt that my time with Veronica was integral component of my recovery. I highly recommend anyone in search of mental health help for themselves or a loved one to reach out to Veronica immediately. It is one of the best things I have ever done.
My best wishes,
