Victoria Legowski, MFT
“I specialize in working with teenagers; especially those who have historically been skeptical of or resistant to engaging with therapy.”
I view therapy as a collaborative, individualized experience. Rather than one model, I utilize techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy, social constructionism, emotion focused therapy and systems theory to find what works best for you. I'm not here to tell you what your life should look like or how to solve your problems. My goal is to help guide you to solutions and interactions that feel right for you. I work to create a judgement free space for you to feel safe in exploring your thoughts and feelings.
I have experience working with individuals, couples and families. I work with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, life transitions as well as those wishing to explore their gender identity, sexuality, or relationships more deeply. I specialize in LGBTQIA clients including youth and their families.
