Victoria is a full-time graduate student studying Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Saint Michael’s College. She earned her B.S. from The University of Vermont with a major in neuroscience and a minor in psychology. After college, Victoria followed her passion for helping others and joined Americorps National Civilian Community Corps where she provided disaster relief services in Florida and California, as well as worked with people experiencing homelessness in Las Vegas. These experiences have helped her look at mental health from multiple lenses and form the belief that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy; she strives to honor the complexity of each individual’s experience and unique needs. Victoria embraces an eclectic approach to therapy with psychodynamic and humanistic influences. She believes the therapeutic relationship can be the foundation for healing and strives to provide a collaborative, compassionate, and supportive environment that encourages individuals to come as they are. Victoria is originally from Stony Point, New York, and fell in love with Vermont during her undergraduate studies at UVM. Her hobbies include yoga, skiing, and enjoying all the great food, music, and scenery this beautiful state has to offer!
