Victoria Tucker - LAC / LPC / RN
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, (LPC) Licensed Addictions Counselor (LAC), and Licensed Registered Nurse (RN). I hold a Master’s Degree in Counseling from Denver Seminary and a Master’s degree in Nursing from the University of Colorado. My approach to health and well-being is rooted in the belief that we have within us the capacity to live satisfying, engaged, empowered, joyful, and meaningful lives. I help my clients get to the root of what is holding them back, and transform limiting patterns so they can live a happy, healthy life.
My style is compassionate, direct, supportive, and creative. I work with troubled tweens and teens, at-risk youths, and adults who present with issues in anxiety, depression, childhood abuse, family of origin issues, PTSD, trauma or sexual abuse/assault, domestic violence, eating disorders, substance abuse and addictive behaviors, self-esteem issues, pregnancy and postpartum mood disorders, bonding with baby, family counseling, couples therapy, divorce, parenting, Christian/Spiritual counseling, spiritual abuse, cult abuse, dissociative disorders, chronic pain, group counseling, and more.
My goal is to engage bodies, minds, hearts, and spirits while providing a gentle, compassionate process for developing a loving, trusting relationship with yourself. I am a trauma-informed therapist and understand the impact that trauma/abuse has on our ability to heal, connect with others, and maintain healthy relationships. My therapeutic techniques include powerful tools for recovering from the wounds of trauma and/or abuse/assault, both physical and emotional. Among them are Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing EMDR.
I have advanced EMDR training in Adult Attachment and Addictions. I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I hold certifications as a Prepare/Enrich premarital and marital counselor, and in Eating Disorders Intuitive Therapy (EDIT). As a professional who has experienced many life transitions myself, I provide counseling for other professionals suffering from stress, burn-out, secondary/vicarious trauma, and personal and family issues.
