Victoria Zamora is a graduate student finishing her Clinical Mental Health Counseling degree at National Louis University. She has experience as a family advocate and parent coach both in childcare settings as well as with families involved with DCFS. Working with adults and couples, her approach is a combination of person-centered, existential, and strength based.
As a Southside native, I aspire to work with the communities that have shaped me and given me so much. Bilingual and bicultural, I am committed to both bringing awareness to the importance of mental health as well as helping to end the stigma in minority communities. I am aware of how our decisions can affect our entire family system and therefore, using a culturally sensitive approach, we will work together to find solutions and set goals based on what is important to you.
Above all, I see my role as a therapist as one of a “fellow traveler” who meets you where you are warmly and without judgment and helps you work toward where you would like to be.
Areas of focus: Depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem work, family systems, life transitions, women’s issues, LGBTQI+ issues, multicultural/bicultural issues, and identity issues.
