Written by D.A. on May 06, 2020 after counseling with Victor for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

It is Victor's warmth and support that makes me feel safe diving deep into myself. Finding unexpected connections and talking about uneasy key points is more fluid with Victor there. Though we have not known each other long, I feel genuinely encouraged in our work together. Looking back at former versions of myself, Victor has already helped me to become more accepting. I feel seen, and I feel respected knowing that I don't need to impress him. Taking this time to look inside myself and give care to wounds that have been affecting me for a long time is worth it, and Victor has been a patient and gentle person to reach out to.

Victor is very easy to talk to. He made our first meeting very comfortable and he knew exactly what my condition was. He is very knowledgeable.

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.
