Hello, I'm Victoria Hudson, LMHCA. My work has focused, for the last 14 years on supporting survivors of all ages of sexual exploitation and trafficking in a frame of crisis advocacy. More recently, I chose to shift directions by advancing my education to in the direction of trauma-focused counseling. Today my work is rooted in a commitment to offer spaces that invite creativity into the stories of individuals and communities. In this space, my clients are invited to re-explore their family history as well to consider who they are uniquely. In this space relational engagement is valued; voice, choice and consent are key and the diversity of identities, feelings, cultures and personalities are invited to live in authenticity. My approach to therapy includes an intermodal way of relating to the the individual and ancestral lifespan. I believe that to process experiences of harm and confusion means to engage in a journey of the body, mind and emotional center, that is both an individual and collective process. For one to have the opportunity to gain safe proximity to both the discomforts and desires found within means to progressively learn to feel safer within your own skin. I use attachment explorations and lifespan integration methods in therapy along with trauma focused narrative approaches to care. I believe that therapy is an art formed out of the expression of relationship between client and counselor as it is influenced by the environment's they find themselves within. I look forward to connecting further about you personal goals in this season to imagine the best direction for collaborative restoration that honors your story, the core of your identities and that paves the way for goodness in life as you press toward who you are becoming.
