“You’re not a victim for sharing your story. You are a survivor setting the world on fire with your truth. And you never know who needs your light, your warmth and raging courage.”- Alex Elle
Victoria Louca (she/her/hers) is a Master’s Degree student studying Social Service (equivalent to social work) with a clinical concentration at Bryn Mawr’s Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research.
As someone who has gone through her own personal obstacles in life, Victoria is familiar with the weight, pain, and burden of unhealed, lingering trauma. Victoria’s true passion is to provide a warm and safe space for individuals to explore themselves, grow, and overcome the trauma that life has thrown at them, bringing a very pure and unique kind of empathy to her work. Through approaches and modalities including psychodynamic theory, mindfulness-based work, EMDR, psychodrama, internal family systems, and cognitive behavioral therapy, Victoria will help guide clients through their healing journey.
Victoria has spent the last year working with individuals with substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health diagnoses. She brings experience in the work of trauma, addiction & mental health, self-exploration, and recovery, utilizing a strengths perspective, client-centered approach. Victoria takes a very careful, curious look at any present-day “pressure points” or patterns that cause pain in order to help identify underlying traumas from the past where those tender spots may have originated.
Victoria deeply believes that every person has a right to heal and come to a place of authentic self-love and self-acceptance. She prioritizes listening, compassion & gentleness, trust, safety, patience, and empowerment in her work and will always provide a judgment-free space as clients embark on their journey of self-discovery.
“I want you to tell your story, because no one knows it better. I will always take a back seat to your narrative, and will simply be here to help expand your awarenesses and tools. My goal is to help and witness you live in your truth.”
The pain of trauma in early life can live inside of us and wreak havoc for years to come. Victoria is determined and committed to helping individuals free themselves of the binds of self-doubt, shame, fear, regret, abandonment, and low self-esteem. Instead of continuing to live in the effects of trauma, Victoria will work with you to heal your wounds, incorporate the trauma as part of your story, and identify gifts that may have risen out of this pain that will change your life forever.
Victoria’s typical fee is $85 for individual therapy (53 min); she can work on a flexible sliding scale if needed.
