Victoria Rivera is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in New York, NY. Many of Victoria’s clients have trouble with their thoughts - whether that’s feeling overwhelmed with rumination, frustrated with unhealthy thought patterns, or feeling disconnected from their values. These feelings often show up in times of stress or anxiety, grief, or after trauma. Victoria works with each client on finding what works for them to feel more comfortable in daily life.
Victoria’s unique approach to sessions with clients draws from holistic wellness therapy. Her framework consists of discovering imbalances in the many dimensions of our lives: physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial just to name a few. By raising awareness on these parts of life, Victoria then supports her clients as they navigate through changes and towards feeling better.
Victoria earned her Master’s degree in Social Work from Columbia University. She augmented her training by earning a certificate in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from the NYU School of Psychoanalytic Education as well as a certificate from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. She brings her extensive experience with mindfulness practices and meditation into sessions to set a calm yet intentional atmosphere for clients to talk through their journey.
