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 states of Mississippi and Colorado and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Nevada. 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.

Viki is an amazing therapist. This is my first time trying therapy and was very hesitant about getting help in the beginning. I thought every therapist would be the same but what’s special about viki is that she’s personable enough that I feel like I’m talking to a friend not a therapist. I would without a doubt, recommend Victoria to any one of my friends or family members!

Victoria Scott - a therapist yes, but a friend and confidante too. After a particularly destructive cycle, Victoria helped me order my thoughts and get my life back on track. I could not recommend her more highly, and I could not thank her enough.

I was matched with Victoria as my second counselor on BetterHelp. She has been extremely helpful and understanding. The fact that she has even responded to me on her day off just makes me feel like she really cares about the people she is trying to help. Her worksheets are really good at making you think about things on your own, and then she goes over them with you really helping you understand why your mind is the way it is now and how (and that it is possible) to change it into the goal you want it to be. I look forward to more sessions with her and seeing where everything goes!

She focused on looking to the future and using what I’ve been through to propel me forward. It means so much to me that I can text her at any time and she will get back to me in a timely manner.

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.
