How do you find the hybridization of VSEPR Models?

If I understand what you are asking correctly, You look at the number of bonding regions (bonds and lone pairs) that a central atom in a molecule has. For Example, CH4 has 4 bonding regions, and will thus be sp3 hybridization. Hope this helped!

In fact, the number of regions of electron density (number of lone pairs (count two as a pair) and bonds (single, double, triple all count as one)) will always be able to tell the hybridization configuration.
