I have worked in school, residential and outreach settings with a variety of diagnoses including (but not limited to) Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Anxiety, PTSD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and Mood Disorders.
I am glad to support those struggling in today's strange climate, or those looking to explore themselves and increase health and wellness while quarantined. My approach to treatment is strength based and multimodal. I use a holistic approach that can incorporate discussion, art, movement and humor to explore issues. I work well with those who have had trouble connecting with therapists in the past and those who may be resistant to entering treatment.

I understand how difficult seeking help can be for many teens. With over 25 years of experience, I'm able to engage the most challenging young people, so they can get the help they need. I specialize in working with teens who are struggling across multiple domains in their lives (school, peers and family). My approach is both trauma-informed and strength based. I have extensive training in ARC (Attachment Regulation and Competency) interventions, DBT, and CBT. My experience running mental health programs affords me a unique understanding of educational, justice and mental health systems.

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.

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.

What is a life worth living for you? This is ultimately the question we will journey into. Our work might explore your ways of relating to the given "problem", reframe particular internalized narratives, educate you on neurobiological frameworks, and/or encourage you to draw upon your own unique heritage, hopes, and motivations toward your behavioral change and your preferred life. I hope to remind each person of the maxim of narrative therapy: "the problem is the problem; the person is not the problem" (White, 1998). So, what story would you like to write through your actions, values, and life?

I enjoy working with individuals who are motivated for change but who might not know how to take the first steps. As an interactive therapist, I see myself as a facilitator in your therapy as you work toward improving aspects of your life that you feel no longer work for you. Trained as a relational psychologist, I emphasize the importance of early relationships and how they impact one's daily functioning. I value the importance of the here and now as well as the future while helping individuals realize their maximum potential for happiness.

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.
