Victoria is a proud double graduate of Rutgers University. She received her bachelors degree in psychology and her masters degree in clinical social work both from Rutgers University! Victoria has received her licensure in the state of New Jersey as a practicing social worker with prospects of becoming a licensed clinical social worker. During her time as a student, she worked in both outpatient and inpatient levels of care where she received a lot of training in both individual and group therapies. Her experience in the field has allowed her to acquire a large toolbox of different therapeutic modalities including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT), mindfulness practices, somatic experiencing, and more. With her holistic approach to therapy, you can work together to find out what techniques best fit you in reaching your goals.

Message to clients

Hello and welcome! I'm Victoria, a licensed social worker. Let's work together to get you to a better place.

I have seen first hand how mental health challenges affect people and their lives. I want to ensure people that they are not alone in their experiences and I wish to help guide them through their pain and, hopefully, to a happier and more fulfilling life. We can work together to help you define and achieve your therapeutic goals, develop resilience and forge a path forward into a brighter future where you can uncover the best and happiest version of yourself! You don't need to be in crisis to start going to therapy. We are here for you under any circumstances.
