About Me

Hello. I am a counselor originally from New York City, and currently residing in Atlanta, Georgia. I have over 20 years experience working with people with developmental disabilities as well as emotional and mental disorders. My goal is to help you find balance while striving for your highest ideals/best life. I use a variety of approaches based on a thorough and complete assessment. Basically I individualize treatment based on each individuals needs. I am compassionate, understanding and insightful, and these are important qualities in identifying and correcting limiting thoughts, feelings, attitudes and beliefs.
In these unprecedented times mental hygiene/wellness is of the utmost importance. Depression, Isolation, Anxiety, and trauma can make daily life challenging. With the proper attitude and support from our counselors, friends, family, and associates we can emerge successful from these challenges.
Thank you for taking taking the time to consider working with me. Regardless of which counselor you choose I wish you health, wealth, and success.

I enjoy working with Victor. The compassion this gentleman has for me makes me feel seen and heard, unlike any other intervention I've experienced. He gets it and helps you get clear right from the jump. I highly recommend him as your therapist.

Written by A.D. on Mar 02, 2022 after therapy with Victor for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Victor has been invaluable to me and my mental health journey. At the beginning, I was in a bad place, struggling to find hope and enjoyment out of life as a result of anxiety. However, after just 4 weeks with Victors assistance, care, listening, advice and hope, I can gladly say I’ve come out the other side with unfettered gratitude for the present and excitement for the future. I would recommend Victor to anyone I know who is struggling with full confidence he will help them. Many thanks, Victor.

Victor feels like family. He talks me down off of every ledge I climb on. Makes me feel safe and that I could do and survive everything. Honestly I started this with a heavy heart and wanted to quit and cry everyday. Not anymore! I appreciate you Victor!

Victor is the therapist I always needed. He's straight-forward, doesnt BS you, and tells you the truth in a way that is tough-love and what you need to hear. He understands how to mix compassion with truth, and gives you lessons, metaphors, stories and routines that help. Ive only been with him 3-4 months and I will never go back. Victor Grimes is one of the greatest things that ever happened to me. I have so much trust in him, and he's helped me more in 4 months than any meds or exercising or meditations combined. If you have him as your therapist, you dont have any idea how lucky you truly are. Thank you Victor.

I almost cancelled my whole search for help because I didn’t fit with the therapist I was first paired with. Then I picked Victor. And I have yet to regret it. The most help I’ve ever received from a therapist, and I’ve been in therapy since I was 9 years old (I’m 26 now). Is he going to be right for you? I can’t say for sure. What I can say is that he genuinely listens and cares, he’s patient, and gives insightful advice. I believe in his ability to help me change my life for the better if I put in the work. What more could I ask for?

Victor is an incredibly compassionate and caring person. My experience working with him so far has been filled with comforting and inspirational words alongside interesting lessons in how the neurology and behavioral science. Most of our work has me putting in efforts and doing simple exercises that helped retrain my mind away from constant negativity into a much more healthy space. He provides great insights into any issues or concerns I bring to him, and I truly value all of the help he has given so far.

My first session with Victor really did a lot for me. I was really struggling and it was my first therapy session ever, so I still had my doubts about how it would help me at all, but it felt great. He really listened to me and made it easier for me to open up and share how I was feeling.
