Victoria is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy. She works within the Department of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai Hospital. Due to her work in the hospital, she is well versed in diagnosing mental disorders and has developed significant familiarity with psychotropic medications. Most importantly she has become skilled in working with a complex and varied patient population. In an effort to serve those who could benefit from alternative treatments outside of what is available through conventional medicine, she often utilize integrative and creative approaches with patients--including mindfulness techniques, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Reiki, all of which I have incorporated into her background.
In regard to her education, Victoria received her master’s degree in Social Work from NYU and then completed a two-year post-graduate training in psychodynamic psychotherapy at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy.
