About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 30 years of experience in behavioral health providing clinical counseling to adults and adolescents. My clinical career includes treating and supporting clients with a wide range of concerns such as, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, substance abuse, personality disorders, mood dysregulation, trauma, grief & loss and more.

My counseling style is supportive, but yet direct. While I do treat everyone with respect, empathy and compassion, you cannot change what you are not willing to own. This process is most often difficult, uncomfortable and frustrating. And so, self reflection, openness and building trust with one’s self is imperative in order to face things in your life that you say you want or need to change.

My most common modality of intervention is cognitive-behavioral retraining as one’s perception is everything. Often, the way we phrase things feed our subconscious the opposite of what we really want/need/desire or, the lenses in which we see/understand a situation is distorted and so, we need to reframe the picture. In addition, I am skilled at person-centered, solution focused, motivational interviewing, Trauma-focused CBT, EMDR (I’m very selective w/ this via Telehealth) and more.

I provide sessions via telephone or video on a weekly basis. Sporadic, random or biweekly sessions are not an option when working with me until after you have done the work and reached your goal. If you are unable to commit to this then I am not the clinician for you. But, if you’re ready to confront things in your life or, you’re seeking relief from depression, anxiety and or more - I’m your person!

I look forward to supporting you on making changes in your life or just even facing some perhaps painful or frustrating things. Remember, the therapeutic relationship is a partnership that grows out of facing difficulties together. What is most important is that you learn to trust yourself during the journey.

I look forward to supporting you.

Victoria was wonderful to work with -- supportive, empowering, and thoughtful. I appreciated her wisdom and experience, along with her good humor and direct style. This was a great fit. I'll definitely reach out to her again in the future, and I have already recommended her to friends.
