Feeling understood, feeling helped, and feeling supported are at the core of psychotherapy. This process also includes developing and enhancing self understanding. Many people contemplate calling a therapist for a long time, unsure of what to expect or how to proceed. Together, we can explore and understand difficult issues in your life and gain a deeper understanding of your situation. Through this process, we can begin to offer you new emotional experiences. In a safe setting with warmth and engagement, I provide an opportunity to gently move through what is bothering you most.

Hello, I’m Victoria Storr and I guide clients towards a self-chosen life. One where they feel empowered and confident. Sounds nice right? I promise you, it feels even better. I could imagine you’re a bit skeptical. I’m sure you’re thinking that living the life of your dreams is not possible for you because of past mistakes, current circumstances, or because it hasn’t worked before. I meet all of my clients in this exact moment in their story; The specifics change but the root of the issue is often the same: people living in patterns of thoughts and actions which keep them trapped and hold them back.

My approach to therapy emphasizes self knowledge, empowerment and insight helping move towards a more integral, meaningful and gratifying life. It is with passion and kindness that I witness the healing transformation a person goes through in the therapeutic relationship. Originally from Brazil, I speak English, Spanish, and Portuguese working with clients who speak these languages. Three theories permeate my work: the Integral theory of Ken Wilber, Psychodynamic theory, and Hakomi. I integrate into the analysis the physical, mental, emotional, and social parts of the self (Integral) in a mindfulness-based, body inclusive, and experiential perspective (Hakomi).

As a Jungian analyst I see children and adults for depth-oriented psychotherapy. I use a relational model focussing on feelings that come up between myself and my client as we work on the outer and inner concerns. Images from dreams, sandplay and art are integrated into the analytic work to explore deeper meanings and to elucidate concerns. I use play therapy & sandplay as appropriate for children and offer other age appropriate materials. I believe in a growth rather than a pathology oriented process, viewing problems-in-living as an opportunity to further self-development, growth, and awareness.
