Vanessa Borunda, LAC
Vanessa is an Arizona native who graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Psychology with an emphasis in Family and Human Development at Arizona State University in 2016. Her passion for helping people arose early in her academic career while obtaining her bachelor’s degree. She was fortunate enough to work with a group of children in one of the lab courses that helped her understand that counselors do not necessarily give advice, however they offer support and insight. She later completed her Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with Honors from Grand Canyon University in 2022. She enjoys working with a team and meeting new people. She enjoys spending time with her family and traveling in her spare time. Throughout her experience, Vanessa has learned so much about herself, the clients, and how the field of counseling operates. She looks forward to growing professionally at Rising Phoenix.
