About me

Hello! I am LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) in Florida with 4 years experience working as a therapist/counselor. I have experience in helping clients and groups with stress, addiction, anxiety, coping skills, anger management, motivation, emotional regulation, life crisis, self esteem, confidence, incarceration, trauma, grief, substance abuse, depression, and various mental health diagnoses/issues.

I practice several therapeutic approaches including CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), Solutions Focused Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, REBT (Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy), Narrative Therapy, and Mindfulness. I believe in treating anyone with respect, dignity, integrity, sensitivity, and compassion, and I do not believe in stigmatizing labels or judgment. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in growing into your best self. I support anyone who is motivated to work toward positive change and to empower well-being. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am excited to begin this journey with you! I am looking forward to getting to know you and what we can do to reach your therapeutic goals together.

I generally check messages in the evenings Monday through Friday and respond as quickly as I can. I appreciate your patience with my lack of access to my messages during the day as I am generally attending to other professional obligations and clients.

Victoria is a wonderful therapist! She listens to me and lets me go off topic if I feel too overwhelmed with the topic. I feel I can talk to her about anything.

Amazing, I love that she responds within a timely manner. She is reliable in her responses as well. She won't leave a message unanswered. I trust her expertise, she is very relatable, and I feel like I can easily connect with her.
