Vicky specializes in working with people who have experienced trauma and attachment disruptions.

She has also completed the level 1 and 2 trainings in Internal Family Systems therapy. She is currently completing advanced training in attachment work, using the DARe method (Dynamic Attachment Re-patterning experience). She brings this trauma-informed lens to her work, which includes understanding the physical and emotional responses to both long-term and single-incident trauma.
For over a decade, Vicky has also been committed to working with women during pregnancy and the postpartum period. She understands the particular challenges that can come with having a child, including fertility struggles, traumatic birth experiences, postpartum depression and anxiety, bonding and attachment issues, and identity shifts as one becomes a parent. She has completed post-graduate training in maternal mental health.
Vicky is passionate about her work and approaches sessions with an attitude of curiosity, openness and respect. She believes that therapy is a collaborative effort, and works hard to achieve a healthy balance of support and challenge to encourage growth and healing.
