I apply Cognitive Behavioral, Harm Reduction, Motivational Interviewing, Person-Centered, Self-Compassion & Forgiveness Based Treatment.
Choosing a therapist can be a frightening and overwhelming task. For therapy to be most effective, it is important to find someone you are able to connect with, feel comfortable to share, process and cope with life’s most challenging struggles. I have 10 years of experience working in the field of substance use and mental health. My specialties are addiction, trauma and grief, and co-occurring disorders. I have developed a system of therapeutic tools to process feelings, deal with trauma and build better self-esteem. Experienced in substance use assessments.

Waitlist for new clients
Depending on the individual's needs, I can pull from CBT, motivational interviewing, strengths-based approach, and a person-centered approach to get at the heart of the need, as well as what we identify together will work best.

My areas of focus with clients include: neurodiverse profiles (autism, ADHD, NVLD, asperger's and other learning differences), anxiety, social cognition, family systems, parenting, self-esteem and executive functioning skills. I partner with my clients to recognize their abilities, build/implement tools to support their success and create/achieve their personal goals.

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.

I work with people who want to improve themselves, their relationships and their self image. These are people seeking a sounding board, a safe confidential place to talk, and extensive knowledge and experience dealing with their issues. My work focuses on where the client is now, and where they want to go, with no pre-conceived notions. We look at past experiences together and how they impact the present. For parents, I offer coaching and suggestions for managing challenging behaviors, and understanding the impact of early childhood trauma of behavior. With younger children, I encourage learning about expression of feelings.

Although I was trained psycho-dynamically I have found over time that a variety of treatments have become increasingly useful in my work. I want the client to be a part of the treatment choice and plan. I do not want to just provide a service, but to help educate the client in order to help them become more independent in their future treatment needs. I feel; that no two clients fit the same box, as the client comes in and begins to open up about what has lead them to therapy, the treatment I use changes accordingly.
