Professional statement

Veronica Siffert is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in the treatment of anxiety disorders (Generalized Anxiety Disorder, phobias), depression, trauma/PTSD, OCD and related disorders, and those struggling with life transitions or managing stress.

Veronica brings compassion, warmth, and insight where clients can explore their thoughts and feelings in a safe and nonjudgmental space. She draws from her extensive training and experience using evidence-based therapies including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and mindfulness based interventions. She also specializes in Cognitive Processing therapy (CPT) for the treatment of PTSD and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), which is recognized as the most effective evidence- based treatment for OCD. Veronica spends time getting to know her clients before developing an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to her client’s background and goals.

She completed her undergraduate studies in her native state of Louisiana before moving to Houston to obtain her Master degree in Social Work from the University of Houston in 2010. Her professional experience includes working in hospital and non-profit settings focusing on both adult and teenage mental health. In addition to her private practice clinical work, Veronica is passionate about teaching and is involved in the education and supervision of Psychiatry Residents at Baylor College of Medicine in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Veronica offers in-person sessions conveniently located in the Montrose area of Houston. She also offers virtual video sessions to clients living in Texas.


Message to clients

Welcome! Therapy is an opportunity to explore what may be causing you distress, sadness, or worry so that you can work towards living a life with more joy and fulfillment. In therapy, I aim to create a safe and collaborative space where I can help you understand your experience and support you in your recovery.

You may be seeking therapy to gain a better understanding of yourself and the self-defeating patterns that prevent you from leading your most fulfilled life. Or perhaps you are seeking new tools and strategies to help you cope with feelings of anxiety, depression, relationship distress, or the impact of trauma. I value the courage it takes to begin the healing process and I welcome the opportunity to work together to reach your treatment goals.

My therapy style enables and motivates you to apply what we work on within our sessions to your life outside of session. My goal is to teach you to become “your own therapist” so that the new insights and skills you develop can have sustained benefits even after therapy has ended. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about what our work together might look like.
