Throughout Victoria’s education, her interests and goals shifted several times. First, it was teaching, then counseling to support veterans and soldiers with PTSD, which led her to her specific graduate program. After working in a non-profit with underserved populations, she realized just how prevalent trauma is in our society and decided to continue working with the general population. Victoria began focusing on Mindfulness and Wellness based counseling techniques, as they were introduced during her education/ She realized many clients want to try various interventions before relying on medication to treat their symptoms. She also is exploring and working towards formal training in Animal Assisted counseling interventions.

Why are you passionate about providing mental healthcare?

Throughout Victoria’s life, mental health was not addressed, discussed, or even mentioned. The stigma around it was massive. As she grew into adulthood she began recognizing just how prevalent it is in our culture and knew she wanted to be a part of the movement to change that. Victoria has always been a helper in some form and has always found joy and happiness in helping others.
