Victor is very understanding, he also does a great job listening and comprehending your issues/situation. And an even better job explaining himself.

Victor is consistent and there for you and helpful in so many ways. He understands the Latino community and culture as well as American culture all while being a helpful guide. Certainly helps me find some semblance of balance.

I feel I can be very candid with Victor as my counselor. He's very patient and understanding. He is also really great at guiding me to psychological strategies that actually help me think through my pain and struggles. I'm very happy to have him as my counselor.

Victor has been a huge part of what has brought my partner and I closer together. His insight and assistance has been extremely important for me in learning how to relate better to myself, and as a result to her.

Written by E.L. on Mar 22, 2019 after counseling with Victor for 4 months on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, self esteem, and career difficulties

For someone like me who had no clue how to go about going into therapy, let alone being dubious about therapy, Victor has given a new meaning, attitude and perspective to my life. He knows and empathizes the struggles of a man with responsibilities trying to make right and leave a positive impact, not only for others, but for oneself. He has helped channel my past struggles into a positive route and come to terms with.

It's the first step in unchartered territory that's a struggle- now its a walk in the park with a confidant. I am now happy, confident, content and emotionally stable due to Victor.

Written by Z.A. on Mar 07, 2019 after counseling with Victor for 4 months on issues concerning addictions, family conflicts, self esteem, career difficulties, and bipolar disorder

I am a high achiever in everything I do in my life. I love self-help books. It seemed I have all the answers but then again I have been struggling with pornography and entertainment addiction for the last decade of my life. Victor has helped me recognize just because something makes sense intellectually, it doesn’t mean my behavior will change. Real change takes place by challenging, exploring, processing, and systemizing my thoughts and behaviors emotionally. I love to work with Victor and I am very excited about the progress and the results we will achieve together.
