Vania is an experienced and engaging trainer of both professionals and families. She specializes in blended, relative, adoptive, and foster families. Her 18-year experience with Child Protective Services allows her to empathize with and treat the dynamics of these special types of families. She is a trained facilitator in Pathways to Permanence 2: Parenting Children Who Have Experienced Trauma and Loss, a series for parents and caregivers of children who have experienced trauma. She has completed intake assessments, individual and group counseling for inpatient psychiatric care units, home health and dialysis clinic social work, completed adoption home studies for over 10 years and works with issues of infertility as well as grandparents raising their grandchildren; including extended families and kinship placements. Growing up an Army brat in Killeen has increased her understanding of the uniqueness of military life and cultural diversity. Her long career has influenced her work in racial trauma, PTSD, LBGQT issues, chemical dependency, anxiety, depression, child-parent conflicts, mental disorders, adjustment issues and abuse. She utilizes various techniques from mindfulness, meditation, working through thought distortions and prayer for faith-based clients. She works well with individuals, couples, children, adolescents and families to navigate through difficult times by identifying strengths and tools that work best for each of them.
