VIANA VALLEJO, LCSW
I am a client-centered therapist. This means that I believe you are the expert of your life and I encourage you to take the lead in our sessions. I will walk alongside you and gently guide you through challenges, and also encourage you to push on your path of change and growth. What I bring to our collaboration is training and experience to help you reflect, examine and challenge yourself. I am accepting and non-judgmental in my approach. I am relational, compassionate and direct. I truly believe that together we can create new behaviors and habits so that you can live the best version of your self more often.
I work with clients to develop individualized care and call upon a variety of treatment modalities such as dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy and EMDR.
I completed my advanced clinical training hours working with children and focusing on developmental trauma and early attachment wounds. I have experience working with children and adults in a variety of settings including schools, psychiatric hospitals and outpatient therapy settings. I also have experience working with individuals with Narcissistic and Borderline personality traits, and their loved ones. I am passionate about helping women navigate the most important relationships in their lives. I love to use my knowledge to help women form stronger bonds with their children and set firmer interpersonal boundaries to feel more empowered and fulfilled in their lives.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and fluent in both Spanish and English. I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a minor in Education from The University of Florida. I later attended The University of Texas at Austin earning a Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work.
