Counseling For Women
In my practice as a psychotherapist, I help women identify their passions and develop their strengths. It's possible you would like to work on feeling more motivated in life or having healthy boundaries with friends and/or family members. With some self-exploration, understanding how past trauma can affect one's life, the healing process can begin! Whether we use traditional "talk" therapy and/or integrate creative expression, personal therapy can be an adventure rather than a drain. Knowing oneself is an amazing gift to give to yourself. Find your true self and bloom.
There are any number of reasons to seek the help of a therapist in today's world; the list is many! Giving ourselves permission to ask for support and help is a sign of strength. What is most important is you do not have to live your life in emotional pain. You deserve to feel whole! It is possible you are a victim of abuse, or struggle with feeling less than, have lost a partner or are totally unhappy in your work or relationship. Whatever the root of the pain or unhappiness is, together we can explore ways to make changes, relate with more compassion towards oneself and discover the blocks that keep you stuck. The good news is there is help. I will teach you some basic cognitive skills and healthy ways to relate to yourself and others along the way. You don't have to empty your pocketbook to be in therapy!

I can't thank Victoria enough for the space and support to heal with other women through art, and fun." Michelle E
Thank You for the great class Saturday. I really did enjoy it and left feeling like I really did learn something about myself and letting go and to try to just be a bit more accepting and relaxed about who and where I am. So thank you!!
Thank you so much for what you have brought to my life. It is the first time in almost 3 years I have found anything or anyone that brings me so much peace and happiness inside (except for the ocean, of course).
The practice of creative work becomes a mirror to our internal world helping us gain wisdom, peace, healing and solutions to problems. Whether it is perfectionism, anxiety, depression, physical pain or other obstacles to feeling whole and more relaxed and accepting of yourself, art allows you space to feel safe and free to explore your authentic self. Many times, answers and wisdom come to us while we are calm and in a relaxed state...here is where the wisdom reside
