Dr. Victoria Rodriguez is a licensed psychotherapist and social worker with over 18 years of experience working with individuals (adults and teens), couples, and families. Victoria has experience treating clients experiencing anxiety, depression, identity issues, imposter syndrome, workplace stress, grief and loss, relationship concerns, and trauma. She specializes in working with women, most specifically WOC and female entrepreneurs, in advancing in both their careers and their interpersonal relationships while at the same time developing a more compassionate relationship with themselves. For clients who want to grow their leadership presence and skill sets, she incorporates her training in strategic leadership into sessions as a means to empower her clients to develop as leaders and grow within their careers. She provides executive coaching/ therapy for C Suite leadership.
Victoria finds it a privilege to work with her clients on their journeys of healing, self-discovery, and growth. She collaborates with her clients to explore the roots of their concerns and symptoms, while assisting them in working toward sustainable, transformative change. Victoria is committed to assisting her clients in better understanding themselves, breaking negative patterns, effectively regulating their emotions, and building stronger relationships. She builds each session around her clients’ needs and goals. She uses a blend of therapy practices and modalities, including talk therapy, psychoanalysis, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
Identifying as Mexican American and Puerto Rican, she is committed to providing her patients a culturally sensitive space that is a safe, judgment-free environment to explore and discuss their identities, behaviors, and feelings. She offers a faith-based perspective (e.g., Christian) for those seeking to incorporate their faith into sessions. She is also an avid runner. In addition to running for her self-care, she is a certified running coach and, in the Spring and Fall, offers running workshops that incorporate running/yoga and mindfulness as a form of therapy.
In addition to being a psychotherapist, Victoria is the Program Manager for BeWELL at Work. In this role, she is responsible for various aspects of oversight, coordination, and execution of the BeWELL at Work Initiative. She serves as the point person between contracted companies.
