Victoria Scott

(LPC, NCC, BC-TMH)

About Me

I have enjoyed working for various mental health agencies and have extensive experience in several areas of counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, in the state of Mississippi, and I have worked with individuals, couples, families and groups. I have worked with children as young as 4 to adults up to age 101! I have assisted clients who struggle with symptoms of anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, relational and self-esteem issues.
I am a mother of seven, including a son on the autism spectrum. My counseling style is person-centered. I believe in treating everyone with respect and unconditional positive regard. I will devise a plan of treatment created specifically for you. My personal life experiences, in addition to my education and work history, help me to empower individuals to overcome difficult emotional obstacles.
I know that asking for help can be difficult. Congratulations on taking that first step. I am looking forward to hearing from you and guiding you through the therapeutic process.

Victoria is very pragmatic and helpful. She responds quickly and helps steer me toward the future rather than dwell too much on what is making me anxious or upset. That's not to say she's not compassionate but I think it is helpful to help me work out how to improve my situation rather than just vent and make no changes. I'm very happy with her help.

Victoria listens, she understands and she helps me to think in a new way. She also helps me to end every session by thinking of something positive, to change my focus, so I don´t get stuck in hard feelings.

Written by R.A. on Apr 13, 2018 after counseling with Victoria for 2 months on issues concerning lgbt, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, parenting, self esteem, and career

Meeting with Victoria online has been super convenient and non-intrusive. She offers great advise on situations I may need a second opinion on and is a great objective, transparent voice when I have relationship concerns. Sometimes you need to vent to someone and it has offered great piece of mind to be able to talk whenever I want to, as much or as little as that may be.

When I say she listens and works with you, this is an understatement. Very hesitant with online way of working through counseling, but it’s not the case with Victoria. She puts you at ease and the media aspect is like opening up to a friend on text. Will continue with her! It fits my lifestyle as I work night shift and she’s very accommodating! Thank you Victoria!
