More About Victoria (Vickie) Zwiefelhofer
Depression, Anxiety, Trauma and Complex Trauma, Borderline Personality Disorder, Eating Disorders, individuals with multiple diagnoses, couples therapy, and group therapy. Adolescents 14 years and up.
My clinical approach is integrative and collaborative as all people are different. Mindfulness is at the core of all approaches I utilize in practice. I utilize Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to help clients build a base of skills to improve their quality of life including decreasing unhealthy coping mechanisms and building healthier relationships. I work with a variety of techniques with individuals who struggle with PTSD or Complex PTSD including Self-Compassion, Prolonged Exposure, and Somatic therapies. I provide tools for clients to practice in between sessions to help them progress toward their individual goals.
I enjoy spending time with my partner outdoors, fishing and boating and taking the motorcycle out for a ride. I love hanging out with my children and grandchildren and get to attend lots of baseball and hockey games to cheer them on. I enjoy cooking and baking for my family. I have been learning some woodworking techniques and have been refurbishing furniture. We also have three dogs and one cat who keep us very busy!
