Professional statement

Victoria (Vikki) Dial is a licensed professional counselor and addictions counselor in Colorado. Many of Victoria's clients come in to address anxiety, depression, trauma, or substance use, as well as relationship difficulties and life transitions. She welcomes adult individuals across the lifespan to her practice, which is located in Louisville, and open to clients across the state. 

Victoria works with clients to better understand the experiences that have shaped their present difficulties. She guides clients to examine how outdated, inaccurate beliefs about themselves, others, and their worldview influence thoughts and feelings. Depending on the challenges a client is facing, Victoria utilizes her training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness practices, motivational interviewing, and narrative approaches. 

Additionally, Victoria often integrates mindfulness techniques and somatic (body-based) interventions to promote post-traumatic growth. This gentle, holistic approach ensures clients feel safe and supported. Clients are able to develop greater resilience and are empowered to overcome adversity; as a result, they experience positive change related to their self-esteem and self-worth, connection with others, and perspective on life’s problems.

Victoria received her MA in counseling from Regis University. Before private practice, she worked in the criminal justice system in various roles. She was a victim's advocate; a juvenile restorative justice program facilitator; a therapist in a correctional facility, and drug court treatment provider. Outside of her work, she enjoys hiking, camping and spending time in nature. She loves art, good movies and books, yoga, sports, knitting and spending time with family and friends.


Message to clients

I work with people to help them better understand the experiences that have shaped their present difficulties. I want to really know the person seated before me. One of the negative impacts of traumatic stress is that it causes people to develop narrow and limiting views of themselves and the world - causing unnecessary suffering and keeping them from living to their full potential. My role is to provide a safe, non-judgmental and supportive space in which you feel accepted and empowered to make wise choices that promote your health and happiness. Together, we will identify the past event(s) that may be contributing to the present problem; the present situations that cause distress; and the key skills that are needed to improve overall well-being.

One goal of psychotherapy is to guide you towards understanding and perspectives that will lead to healthy behaviors and improved interactions. Together, we will explore what works best for you. I will always respect your boundaries and your pacing. I will explain every step of the way: what we are doing and ‘the why’ behind how it helps. This respectful and holistic approach ensures my clients feel safe, nurtured and in control. Clients develop greater resiliency and are empowered to overcome adversity. They experience positive changes in their relationship to themselves, an increased sense of self-efficacy, and improved relationships with others.
