About Victoria

Victoria values the beauty of growing towards living as our authentic, true selves. She believes the therapist acts as a front passenger on one's healing journey, where autonomy is important and the relationship during the ride is key. Victoria's style encourages the notion of meeting heaviness with curiosity and self-compassion, while embracing our goodness in life the same. Victoria invites you to experience the opportunity to explore yourself wholeheartedly. She believes that magic happens when we first accept ourselves as simply being human, and that we all are capable of creating our own inner peace.

In additional to clinical work, Victoria assists with clinical outreach, curriculum development, and Wholehearted marketing.

Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path."
