“You don’t have the same mentality as you did five years ago- even one year. People are always changing, and I believe that everyone deserves the space to change and for people to recognize their change.” 

-Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio

My role as your therapist is to support you alongside your journey to healing by creating an unbiased environment to explore feelings and learn helpful skills. I come from a social justice and trauma-informed lens. I believe therapy should be interactive and experiential, incorporating DBT, mindfulness, and creative art elements.

I work primarily with female adolescents and young adults with a history of Chronic illness, trauma, perfectionism, depression, anxiety, and/or mood disorders.

My Story


My name is Vanessa Guerero, and I am a clinical therapist with Winter to Spring Wellness. Before being in Asheville for almost a decade, I originally hail from Miami, Fl. I am a proud daughter of Cuban immigrants and a first-generation college student.

As a teen, I had my battles with physical and mental wellness, acculturation difficulties, and cultural stigma regarding mental health care. Through my own work, I have found healing and am now honored to support others who struggle with their own mental wellness and similar issues. 

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Florida State and my Masters’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lenoir-Rhyne University. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (LCMHCA) in the state of North Carolina and a nationally certified counselor. I have approx 8-year of experience working in various positions in the mental health field, including but not limited to residential and community mental health agencies. 

In my free time, I enjoy taking advantage of the beautiful nature in our area, going for hikes, and swimming under waterfalls. Laughing with friends and snuggling with my dog. I am also an artist and an avid lover of music and Latin dance. 


How do I know that our sessions will stay private?
We are bound by law and ethics to keep everything you share with your therapist confidential. Winter to Spring Wellness is known as a “covered entity” under HIPAA, which means that we’re subject to all HIPAA rules and guidelines. This will be discussed with you in your first session in more detail.
Do you offer online sessions?
Absolutely. We offer both teletherapy sessions to clients who prefer online to in-person appointments. These sessions are offered in a HIPAA compliant video platform.
Does Winter to Spring Wellness accept insurance?
Yes, we do! We accept many major insurance plans, including Blue Cross, Anthem, Optum, United, Aetna. This can vary by the provider. To view what insurance plans your preferred clinician accepts, please view their profile page for more information.
What can I expect from my first session?
The initial session is the time for you to begin establishing rapport with your therapist. Furthermore, the initial session is where the therapist gathers vital information regarding the presenting concerns, goals, history and mental wellness. The allowed time frame for the initial visit is approximately 55-60 minutes.
Can I pick the therapist I would like to work with myself?
Absolutely! We want your sessions to be successful and will tailor them to your needs. You can review our provider profiles online, or you can give us a call, and we’ll offer guidance based on specialties and certifications.
How long do I have to be in therapy?
You don’t have to do anything! If you want to make meaningful changes to your life and relationships, the length of treatment is based on your needs and goals. Your therapist will work with you to identify a treatment plan that suits your timeline. We promise we won’t keep you for longer than needed.
