About Me

As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Marriage & Family Therapist in the state of Texas I have worked with a variety of individuals, people in romantic partnerships, families, and groups from diverse backgrounds. As a mental health professional I have had the honor of providing services in a shelter for survivors of family violence and sexual assault, a substance abuse recovery facility, and a nonprofit community mental health agency. Additionally, I have regularly made presentations for professional groups as well as employee assistance programs and many types of social service agencies.

As a professional helper I assist people in understanding more about themselves, their relationships, and the outer world (society). Kindness, compassion, creativity, and patience are key to my work with you. On your therapy journey you will learn many new things about who you are, your needs and wants, and paths you may choose to move towards your goals. It is also my responsibility to help you develop healthier ways of coping and to assist you in exploring your individual strengths .

The work of therapy can be challenging for many reasons and requires you to be open and honest during the process. One of the first steps on this journey is for us to develop a trusting alliance. My task is to be non-judgmental, open-minded, committed, and an active listener. I do not expect you to share everything immediately; I will be patient as you develop a comfort with the partnership and will respect limits you express during this journey. Please note that my style blends listening with education and action. This style may not be a good fit for all clients.

If you feel ready to share some of your story, I am ready to listen and will do what I can to assist you.

Side notes: If you are requesting therapy services for the first time please be aware that I am not online 24/7, yet I will do my best to respond efficiently. In other words, I ask that you be patient as you wait for my response to your request for therapy. We may be in different time zones as well. If you are having difficulty connecting to the therapy experience please let me know before exiting therapy. Sometimes a small miscommunication may be the issue, and it can be worked through.

Written by A.J. on Apr 03, 2020 after counseling with Victor for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, and self esteem

Victor is a great counselor. He is very observant and a good listener. Each session accomplishes its goals. I didn't know what to expect going into this, but very pleasantly surprised overall with the experience and found it very useful so far.

Victor's dedication to my counseling blew me away. He made himself available to me so much it was unbelievable. He mapped out a clear plan for me and always let me know what we were doing and why we were doing it. He really pushed me and supported me through the process I was working with him on. I can't say enough about him. If someone wants to get better and is willing to do what needs to be done, then Victor is the guy.

Victor has spent considerable time learning about me and is a great listener. His professional interjections provide me with real help in learning about myself. Its very early days having only had 2 sessions but I have confidence in his abilities to provide the support in my journey.

Therapy is an unique path for everyone and I feel Victor understands that. His exercises are clear and workable. He can build a safe space where you can feel comfortable to follow your own pace.

We are early in our relationship but everyday I look forward to my journey with him and I. The varied methods of communication really help me open up the way I am comfortable to, and the option of different media's to connect, has made a significant difference in my acceptance of this journey.

Personable, love the practical exercises he gives, great sense of humor, loves that he prefers to schedule phone sessions early on, very engaging, responds in a timely manner, phone sessions are very engaging and never feels like he’s going by the clock but instead really trying to get to know you. Great at recognizing struggle areas and great at encouraging me to share my feelings/thoughts etc. He’s one of the better counselors I’ve worked with that truly helps me reframe my negative thinking.

Victor is a great, we clicked instantly. He's easy going, understanding and has helped me enormously. He responds to messages very quickly and takes a close interest. He is professional, has a good sense of humour, and will tell it as it is in a firm but sensitive manner. Highly recommended.
