Victoria Wendland

(LCSW, CGCS)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Connecticut with approximately 5 years of experience working with people struggling with mental health and/or substance abuse. I have worked with client with a variety of different concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, family conflicts, marriage/relationship strain, OCD, trauma as well as many more presenting problems.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe that everyone deserves respect, and should be treated with sensitivity, and compassion. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I feel that you are the expert of you and at times we all may just need a little help finding answers that are innately within us. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, rational-emotive, and dialectical behavioral counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to ask for help and to seek change within your life. If you are ready to take that step I am honored to be apart of your journey.

I look forward to working with you!

I absolutely love talking to Victoria. I've been her client for a year and she has helped me so much with my anxiety and depression.

Victoria is understanding, compassionate, and was able to help me through many barriers I have been putting up in my life. She works with you at your pace to help you get to a better space. I would recommend her to anyone out there who needs someone to talk to!

Fate would have it that my first session with Victoria coincided with one of the most traumatic days of my life. From that first session onwards she has listened intently to everything I have had to say. She is compassionate and never comes across as judgmental. Her guidance, exercises, and resources have helped me find a path when I was feeling incredibly lost. I am very appreciative of her help and would recommend her to anyone seeking support.

In the few months I have been working with Victoria, I've been strongly impressed by both her professionalism and compassion. She seems to know what my concerns are without my having to go into them in detail, and her advice has been uniformly good. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.

Victoria has been essential in my recovery from a very traumatic relationship and most recently from a violent domestic crime that has Left me shattered in pieces. I don’t think I could have escaped my situation if not for her help and I’m beyond grateful for her services.
