Professional statement

Victoria Gorra is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Midtown, Manhattan who uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for college-age individuals and adults with anxiety and mood disturbances.

Victoria’s treatment approach is rooted in Team-CBT, which is an integrative evidence-based model that involves different schools of psychotherapy. This means she first meets with clients to gain a better understanding of their symptoms, triggers, and past experiences. She then allows time for clients to connect with her and learn to trust her. This includes receiving feedback from her clients on what is or is not working. She wants to ensure her treatment methods are the right fit for each client before diving in. Once it is determined to be a fit, Victoria and her clients set an agenda that outlines their goals and their hesitation towards certain methods. She then spends time teaching her clients the tools they will need to reduce their symptoms and change their behaviors and thought patterns. She will also implement other modalities as she sees fit.

Victoria has extensive training in CBT and continues to keep up with the latest research and methodologies to ensure she is helping her clients the best she can.


Message to clients

Life can get pretty complicated. We sometimes feel overwhelmed and discouraged when we try our best to help ourselves, only to feel more stuck.

By tackling factors that contribute to resistance to improvement, challenging our belief in streams of thought, and re-examining behavior patterns, I offer approaches for us to not just try harder, but more efficiently and with more compassion towards ourselves.

Many techniques that are practiced in session quickly become my clients’ own skill-set to use on their own outside of the therapy room. I also ensure a balance within this approach so that clients have the necessary time and space to explore and reflect upon their inner experiences at their own pace.
