Hi, I'm Vicky! I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Pennsylvania with 10 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, anger management issues, and other mood management issues. I have experience working with a variety of individuals, including children, adolescents, and adults, clients with special needs, and clients from many different cultural backgrounds.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, solution-focused, and dialectical-behavioral therapy techniques. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you and will help you every step of the way.
I look forward to working with you!

Vicky is great! I love her flexibility in listening to what is going in with me this week but also circles back to tipics I have expressed interest in coming back to. She is great about sending me resources to refer to and I just love having someone to talk through my issues with me in weekly basis. Thanks Vicky!
