Hi, I'm Victoria.
I am a second-year graduate student at Columbia University’s School of Social Work and I’m delighted to be serving as a clinical intern at this practice this academic year.
A few words about me
As an individual and couples therapist, I believe that we all deserve a safe space to explore who we are and to heal from past and present challenges.
I draw upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and feminist theory to support this work. My work with couples centers around building strong relationships through mutual understanding, communication, and conflict management, as I have a background in the Gottman Method. At your comfort, we will bring into our sessions the techniques listed above, your own strengths and interests, and an array of tools and resources where appropriate.
Why I became a psychotherapist?
I believe that embedded in each of us are the tools and knowledge for self-reflection, growth, and healing. I work with clients to develop the insight and skills necessary to manage anxiety, depression, overwhelming emotions, relationship struggles, and to resolve past traumas. I understand that everyone’s path to wellness and happiness is unique; therefore, I am dedicated to forming an authentic relationship with each of my clients and learning from them in the process. My goal is to actively engage with my clients—while putting them at ease and offering support—as they find their best path forward.
