You've done the hardest part! Asking for help and admitting there is a problem or that "something isn't right" is often times the biggest barrier to feeling better. I'm here to help you with the rest, and it will get easier and it will get better. Just trust the process!
My name is Victor and I've been a licensed Psychotherapist for over 10 years. I have a double major in Philosophy and History from the University of Maryland and a Master's degree from the University of Maryland in Clinical Social Work.
My work has been with Children, Adolescents, Adults, Couples, and entire Families. I don't have a preference and I like working with everyone.
I like deep-thinkers, I love to use analogies in therapy, and I love people who are willing to think outside the box. If that's is you in any shape or form, we could be a great fit. Therapists are like shoes, you need to try them on and "walk around" to see if they're a great fit.

Wonderful experience on BetterHelp with Victor. I have seen numerous therapists in my life and I really felt comfortable with him. He helped me so much with grief and depression after I lost my stepdad, along with countless other issues. I am truly grateful for his time and his help over the last 6 months.
