I'm a licensed clinical social worker and certified coach and believe that at our core, we are resilient and possess the strength and power needed to live our best lives. But sometimes we need help. Alone we may feel stuck, lost, not sure how to move forward, but together, with the interactive help of another, we can achieve great things and get out of our own way. Whether you’re feeling stuck in your personal or professional life, let me partner with you to help you live your best life. My work draws on Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), trauma theory (EMDR) and Internal Family Systems ( IFS ).

Because of this, I employ a variety of strategies including Internalized Family Systems ( IFS ) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help process feelings, develop strategies and ultimately thrive.
When people feel better, they do better.  This is true for children, adults and couples.  And in families, when one person is doing better, everyone is better. You may be feeling overwhelmed or dissatisfied at home, school, work, or in an important relationship. You may be feeling like your life is not going how you had hoped or expected. Your child or teen may be struggling at home or school.  If you're a parent supporting a kid or partner who is struggling, you probably feel lonely, frustrated and discouraged. These are some of the difficulties that bring people to my office.

Using a gentle, compassionate approach called Internal Family Systems ( IFS ), I can help you find and befriend the parts of yourself that are hurt or stuck.
You work hard to keep it all together on the outside, but people can't see that inside you're exhausted and shaky. It's true you've achieved a lot in your life, but it doesn't stop your thoughts from spinning. You wish you could stop feeling you don’t measure up, don't belong. It may even feel like depression, anxiety, and trauma have been a part of your life for as long as you can remember. One thing is sure: you’re ready for relief. You’re ready to enjoy close, lasting relationships without your past interfering. You’re ready to stop pushing yourself so hard to achieve and let yourself enjoy what you've earned. I can help.

These tools include Meditation, Clinical Hypnosis, Internal Family Systems , EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy in combination with useful talking therapy approaches.
I am always curious about how we become who we are and as someone once told me, “A person who enters therapy is an experience that wants to happen not a problem to be solved.” My focus is to encourage people to stay curious and open to possibilities of learning more about themselves, creating a supportive safe environment that supports positive movement and change. I stress the importance seeing oneself fully, psychologically, physically and spiritually. All these are important ways of supporting one’s life. I see myself as warm, present, accessible and being of help to accomplish this.

I use a mindfulness-based approach to therapy and also have extensive background in Internal Family Systems ( IFS ).
I came to work as a therapist through my own experiences in therapy. These experiences guide my work and deeply inform how I show up as a therapist. I seek to create an environment in therapy where people can express themselves, heal from past harms and trauma, and connect with their purpose. I specialize in working with youth (ages 10 and up), families, young adults, and men across the spectrum of age. I also specialize in supporting people who have caused harm.

I provide clients with a safe, supportive & respectful therapy/coaching experience. I’m there to listen. They can share “stories, past, present, life stresses/transition, mental health issues, family/couples goals” etc. I build upon clients strengths as we work together to achieve their goals. As a therapist & life coach I strive to provide my clients with a positive experience. Treatment concludes with them feeling better about themselves & having met "their goals”. The passion I felt when chose this field, early on in high school, still remains:). Through challenging times I’m grateful to be here, to help those in need.

I am not your typical therapist, and strive to always create that emotional connection that allows us to work through any issue as a team. Most of my clients have already tried traditional therapy, and haven't been able to engage in one way or the other. Many of my clients haven't felt heard or understood, and it is a goal of mine to make therapy accessible for all. My belief as a therapist is that everyone can benefit- and should benefit from the relationship they have with their therapist. My clients believe in person centered care- and feedback goes both ways. I provide a trauma informed environment where the client gets to lead.

Everyone experiences distressing or overwhelming challenges at different points in life. Many people struggle to manage these inevitable difficulties, get stuck and then subsequently feel defined by their emotional pain. This can negatively impact relationships, ambitions, work and self-worth. I believe in people’s inherent right to live meaningful and joyful lives and in their ability to choose how to respond to life’s challenges. I support my clients through their courageous process of self-exploration and self-compassion.

Hi I’m Victoria! I’m so glad you’re here! I hope this is the first step in your personal growth journey. Mental Health is such an important part of our lives, and I feel it is the ultimate “self care” as it often leads to more insight, self awareness, and positive changes. The goal is to live with more intention and kindness towards others and most importantly ourselves. There are many reasons why someone may be interested in therapy - all of them are valid.

As individuals or in the context of a relationship, we are always trying to make meaning of our lives, decide what is essential to us, and think about the path we are on. Of course, in life there are challenges along the way or worse which interfere. And then we are affected emotionally and can become disillusioned. Anyone can get lost for a time, and feel confused, upset or stuck. In our relationships, we experience conflict and communication struggles, and sometimes get locked into repeated and unwanted patterns. At times, we might ask: "Am I living the life I want; is there something more for me or for us? How do I/we change?

What type of Wellesley mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Wellesley?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
