Meet Victoria

We all experience an innate need to connect and be in relationship with others. Yet, due to 
various systems and relationships you've engaged with, you might be currently struggling to 
experience a true sense of belonging. 
 
Having walked the path of both a client and an intern therapist, I intimately grasp the courage it 
requires to embrace oneself authentically and openly within the therapeutic space. It's with a 
heart full of gratitude that I acknowledge the genuine honour of being entrusted with holding 
space for the most tender and vulnerable aspects of people's lives. 
 
For me, I view my role in counselling as a profound responsibility that I approach with the 
utmost sincerity. I am genuinely thankful for the opportunity to be a supportive companion along 
your path. Together, we embark on a warm and welcoming exploration of self-discovery and 
growth. 

 

Framework

Victoria's approach to therapy is greatly influenced by Attachment Theory, Emotion-Focused 
Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and somatic/body based therapies. Victoria firmly believes in 
recognizing you as the expert in your own life, with your experiences, perspectives, and goals 
steering the therapeutic work. This involves acknowledging the impacts of your past experiences 
as foundational elements in our understanding, addressing their potential ongoing influences in 
your life. Victoria approaches her work with clients with ongoing sensitivity, non-judgment, and 
empathy, ensuring that your sessions together are marked by a profound sense of understanding. 

 

Education

Victoria is currently completing her Master’s of Counselling at City University. She holds a 
Bachelor of Arts in Child and Youth Care. Victoria has over 6 years of professional experience in 
the mental health field supporting individuals in various settings, including community agencies 
and in-patient psychiatry programs at BC Children's Hospital, with a particular focus on children, 
youth, and families.
