My desire is working with each client in a non-judgmental manner as they strive to overcome their difficulties and working together toward an authentic life. My approach is assisting clients in discovering and expressing their gifts, talents and desires through the creation of self-compassion, while providing hope and support for their goals.


My approach, training and experience is based on evidenced based practices and include a combination of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy, (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, (ACT). This eclectic approach allows for you to learn practical coping skills to assist you in addressing your immediate concerns, as well as therapies to aide in your long term growth toward your goals. 


These approaches have been found to be effective in coping with a wide range of issues including Eating Disorders and other process Addictions, Substance Abuse, Mood Disorders, Personality Disorders and Trauma.


I graduated from Capella University with Distinction in 2012 earning a Masters Degree in Addiction Counseling. I have obtained the Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), the Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist (LCAS), Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS) credentials and certifications for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Traumatic Stress Studies from JRI in Boston, MA.

Additionally, I have experienced working at various levels of care, including a hospital crisis stabilization unit, residential programs, psychiatric and medical case management, contract agency employment and private practice. These opportunities have allowed me to gain a wide variety of experience in a multitude of behavioral health issues.


I look forward to meeting and working with you!

Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate

Has life ever kicked you down and as you were trying to recover from the setback, it felt as though no matter what you did or do, you just can't seem to get back up again? Thoughts and feelings of 'being stuck' ever cross your mind? As we go through life, it can be easy to look for things to blame our struggles on, and as we continue to build these expectations, it's as if we were never in control in the first place! Shifting thoughts, feelings, and perspectives about certain events that happen to us can be an extraordinary challenge; a process that can sometimes take many weeks, months, or even years. And that's okay!


We can't always get through some of those challenges alone, so finding a therapist may be an important step on your new adventure of processing and healing. As a therapist, I am here to help guide you on your journey of shifting perspectives on your understanding of life, relationships, trauma, and everything else in between. This is done in a safe, non-judgmental environment where you get to take the reins! My professional mantra is that I will never ask you to do or participate in something I haven't done, or I am not willing to do myself, because what would the point of that be, am I right?


I come to the field with a Master's Degree in Social Work from Indiana University with a concentration in mental health and substance misuse. I have approximately 10 years of experience working with children and their families who have struggled with many crises in their lives, and half of that time dedicated to families who have experienced domestic violence. I am trained in several treatment modalities which include: Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI). I am a person-centered, strengths based, and solution focused clinician and I look forward to assisting you in creating the path to healing that works best for you.

You are the expert on you. I’m here to help you get where you want to be. My goal as a therapist is to support you on your journey to living your most fulfilling life. I strive to do this through providing a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space to process everything from life’s daily stressors to deeply traumatic events, learn and enhance coping skills, and assist you in discovering and reaching your goals.  


I graduated summa cum laude from Northeastern University and received a master’s degree in clinical social work from Boston University where I focused heavily on trauma. Additionally, I have five years of experience working with individuals and families, adolescents and adults, who have experienced significant trauma in their lives. These experiences come from a wide range of settings ranging from social service agencies, healthcare, and community mental health. 


The modalities I most frequently incorporate into my practice are psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), attachment-based therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). I have also received certification in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) and am a trained Circle of Security Parenting facilitator. What I value most about this combination of modalities is that DBT allows us to reduce challenging mental health symptoms early on while the other modalities allow us to work on the root of those challenges over time. 


No one knows your story like you do. I am here to help you make sense of it and take the next steps in your journey to becoming the version of you that you want to be. I look forward to working together.

Victoria Benson
Insurance, Billing, and Practice Consultant
Victory Mental Health Consulting

Victoria is the owner of Victory Mental Health Consulting (VMHC). Prior to the creation of her business, her background was in Finance and Profitability for large worldwide corporations. She developed a love of making companies profitable and more efficient, but found that the global companies were so massive in size, she couldn't see how her efforts helped transform individual lives. VMHC began in 2013 with a lot of faith, few clients, humble beginnings, and a passion to help small businesses grow and function efficiently on a more personal level. She focused her skill-set towards a field she is passionate about: Mental Health, as she believes in and knows the importance of what practitioners do. She has since had the honor of meeting mental health clinicians from all over the US and she enjoys watching their practices grow and become profitable.

When she's not working, she can be found discussing the fascinating world of Sociology, hanging out with her two children, chasing after her puppy warrior, Xena, or watching the newest series released on Netflix.
