Vannia Duran

Licensed Therapist, MSW, LCSW


First and foremost, I approach each session without judgment. I am 100% on your side. Outside of work, I love to read, especially science fiction and fantasy. I like to write my own science fiction short stories, paint, write music, and sing. Hopefully, I can start performing again at some point.

Get to know Vannia Duran

I've always been curious about how the brain works. I had a background working in the mental health and disability fields before pursuing therapy. I decided to become a therapist because I believe you can live a full life, even with mental illness or life struggles. I want to support people who want to change their situation for the better.

OCD has been prevalent in my family, myself included. It was difficult to find therapists who understood what I was going through or how to help. I decided to specialize in OCD to ensure more people could get relief without having to search endlessly for someone who understands.

Trauma. It's like a mental wound that impacts how we think and behave. I believe it’s important to help people heal so they can live life on their terms, not based on what happened to them.

ERP therapy is uncomfortable but extremely effective. You’re taking on this experience in the short term for your long-term benefit.

Remember that I chose to specialize in OCD. Any thought you might have comes with the territory. You don’t have to worry about scaring or burdening me, or me judging you. This is where I want to be, and that includes hearing whatever is going on in your head. I want to be here for you.
