Veronica Cross (she/her)

Hi! I’m Veronica Cross (she/her). I am a psychotherapist in Chicago, IL and Washington, D.C. I currently practice at Roamers Therapy.

Philosophy

I’m here to assist you on your path to change and make a better life for yourself. Whatever the reason you are seeking counseling at this time, there is hope, there is healing ,and you are not alone in this undertaking. My goal as a therapist is to provide you a safe, empathetic space so that you can feel seen, heard, and empowered to make the changes you seek in your life.

I work with individuals and couples utilizing a mix of therapeutic approaches, primarily Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the Gottman Relationship Counseling Method, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindful Self Compassion. My specialties include depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship and familial issues (both family of origin and created families), adjustment and mood disorders, and identity exploration.

I am straightforward and direct when needed, and I will challenge you when necessary to help you accomplish your goals. I believe therapy is not one-size-fits-all and I will work with you to determine the best approach for you. I am a big believer in employing tools such as journaling, meditation and mindfulness practices, worksheets, books, and audiobooks to aid the therapeutic process. I aim to teach you new coping skills or different ways to relate to the world around you. I will sit with you and assist you in processing your emotions, traumas, and experiences. I can provide a different perspective about your issues or thoughts, to show you that there are often many other ways of looking at things. And at the end of it all, I enjoy seeing, talking, being with, and helping my clients on their journeys. I am here, I am ready to support, and I sincerely hope you will reach out.

Things that bring me joy

My two cats, my husband, my family and friends, baseball (go Giants!), Lake Tahoe, rainy weather, a good book, the Office TV show, candles, and good smelling things.
