Hi, I’m Victoria!

Supervised by Dr. Hayley Stulmaker, LPC-S, RPT-S.

I am an LPC Associate who is passionate about walking alongside children, adolescents, and families as they make sense and meaning of their life experiences. My pronouns are she/her/hers. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with minors in Spanish and Society & Health at the University of Mississippi in 2020. In 2023, I earned my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in Play Therapy and Expressive Arts from Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee. After six years of pursuing higher education and exploring different parts of the south, I decided it was time to settle in my hometown and continue my post-master’s career as a play therapist here in Houston, Texas. I hold full confidence that all clients are capable of healing and growth when they are given space to be seen, heard, and understood, and my work as a therapist is rooted in unconditional acceptance, client empowerment, and therapeutic connection.

I work with individuals, families, and adults across the lifespan, taking a humanistic approach to counseling with every client. This means I believe every human being is unique, resilient, and worthy of respect, with an innate tendency towards their own personal growth. I hope to create a safe space where clients can process their experience, identify their strengths, learn tools, and express and accept themselves for exactly who they are. It’s okay to ask for help, and I believe each of us deserves the chance to heal. No matter where you may be in your journey, I’m glad you’re here. I am fluent in Spanish and grew up in a bicultural home, spending anywhere from 2 to 12 weeks with family in Argentina every year. I believe that our identities are influenced by social, cultural, and relational context, and I approach every client with warmth and curiosity. During graduate school, I served an exclusively Spanish-speaking caseload at a non-profit organization that provided mental health services to vulnerable populations, immigrants, and victims of trauma. I am conscious of the impact that trauma has on our physical, emotional, and relational well-being and am passionate about helping individuals and families break the cyclic nature of traumatic distress, develop healthier coping mechanisms, and find healing. With children, I operate primarily from an attachment-focused, child-centered lens. I use Child Centered Play Therapy (CCPT), an evidence-based treatment modality that allows children to express and process their thoughts, feelings, and experiences through play. At the core of my work with children, I aim to help caregivers strengthen their relationship with their child. I meet every child, adolescent, and adult where they are to provide developmentally responsive, individualized care.

I highly value the freedom of expression through art and creativity and integrate it into the healing process with clients of all ages. I have been trained in the use of sand tray and expressive arts mediums from a person-centered perspective, and I believe art can provide clients with a unique opportunity for self-exploration. It isn’t about the product, but rather the process of creating that teaches us about who we are and who we want to be. In addition to those who have experienced trauma, I have experience with clients coping with depression, anxiety, ADHD, life transitions, relationship distress, family conflict, low self-esteem, identity issues, immigration and assimilation-related stress, and neurodivergence. Starting therapy can be overwhelming in itself. Please do not hesitate to connect with me for any questions you may have about myself or counseling at our office. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you!
