Hello, I'm Vitoria (she/her)

I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist #146982 practicing in Southern California.

My therapeutic approach is grounded in a place of understanding the deeper reasons behind your feelings and behaviors, often rooted in unresolved experiences and unconscious thoughts. I recognize that we are complex humans who sometimes need a holistic approach, so I take time to consider an individual's work life, social wellness, cultural beliefs, spiritual beliefs, and sexual identity. My goal in our time together is to create a space where you feel safe to explore these hidden aspects and address past traumas and patterns that affect your current life.

I spent my time training at Airport Marina Counseling Services where I gained extensive experience working psychodynamically, emotional focused, and utilizing cognitive behavioral techniques. I also spent time training at a school-based site and substance abuse treatment center.

When I am not in the office with you I spend my free time immersed in nature, reading, drinking a matcha, and connecting with my loved ones.

It is extremely personal and important to me to be able to provide therapy in Portuguese and English. Sim, eu falo português! I'm deeply honored to be part of your journey and eager to connect with you.

Com cuidado (With care), Vitória
