Meet Veronica Mugi, BA,
Graduate Couple and Family Therapy Intern

Hi, I’m Veronica. I’m truly grateful that you’re here and taking a risk in vulnerability. These small (but really, they’re big) risks in vulnerability are often scary at first, but they pave the way to healing and authenticity.

Counseling can be a really meaningful tool in empowering you to connect with yourself and those around you, and to live a sustainably healthy life. 

As a counselor, I trust that you are the expert of your own life and seek to provide a space where you can show up fully as you are.

My hope for our time together is that you feel seen, heard, and held. I hope that you find your way back to yourself and those you love, and that you find rest, even in the tensions and difficulties of life.

My Background and Experience

More recently, I’ve engaged in counseling with couples and individuals around issues related to communication, setting healthy boundaries, building a healthy self-image, and life transitions.

In the past, I provided care to 53 African immigrant families through the COVID-19 pandemic.

I engaged in informal counseling with families and couples over issues ranging from relational stress to financial pressures, among others. I also facilitated wellness groups for families at the community center and directed an after-school program for the children in the community.

My time in this work taught me a great deal about the importance of family, community, and living intentionally. 

Additionally, I’ve worked with individuals struggling with eating disorder related symptoms by co-facilitating movement and experiential based groups and collaborating with clients to ensure progression through their treatment goals.

When working with underprivileged kids in St. Louis, I utilized trauma-informed care to process issues with these children and their families. It was beautiful to see how increased awareness enabled parents to create healthier environments for their kids to thrive.

I can also provide therapy to clients whose first languages are Swahili or Kikuyu. Kwasababu naongea Swahili pia, tunaweza fanya hii kazi pamoja kwa Kiswahili ukipenda. Asante!  

A few things that fill my heart

  • Quality time with my husband
  • Quiet time alone
  • Reading and writing poetry, reading African literature & fiction (with a warm cup of green tea)
  • My family and few closest friends
  • Finding special clothes at thrift stores
  • Movement (running, going to the gym, hiking and being outside)

I’m looking forward to knowing you and being a part of your story.
