Victoria Kastor

(LCSW)

About Me

My name is Victoria, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida. I have several years of experience working with children and families in a variety of capacities. I have experience in assisting individuals deal with a range of concerns and diagnoses, including ADHD, depression, anxiety, coping with major life changes, parenting difficulties, experiences with trauma, mood disorders, and difficult behaviors. I have worked with children, adolescents, teens, and adults.

When working with clients, my approach is often client-centered. I understand that every person is different and unique, and that my counseling strategies need to be diverse. I believe that the most important aspect of counseling is the relationship that is built between the therapist and the person receiving services. I try to ensure that I take the time to truly get to know each individual seeking my help, and work on building the foundation for a healthy therapeutic bond. The techniques I use are often grounded in the theories of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. My goal is to work with each of my clients to determine the best way to offer assistance, and to tailor each treatment plan to the individual needs of the person I am working with.

I believe that everyone has strengths and abilities that help them to overcome the challenges they experience in life. Part of the reason that I enjoy the work I do so much is that I have the honor of helping others identify these strengths and use them in a way that helps them to succeed even after my role as their therapist passes. I appreciate you taking the time to read about me as you make the careful decision of choosing your counselor. I look forward to hearing from you and working together with you to help achieve your goals.

Victoria has been instrumental in my healing process. She demonstrates knowledge and expertise in mental health and the tools necessary to help her clients. She shows compassion and truly takes an interest in my individual needs. She always responds promptly and sets appropriate expectations for what to expect in our therapeutic journey. I highly recommend Victoria!!

Victoria is honestly the best. She remembers things I’ve told her in the past just in case they may apply to current situations I'm in, and they usually do. She gives me so many coping mechanisms and has taught me a bunch of skills to help me. She also gives me amazing advice and I would 100% recommend her to anyone.
