Victoria Powell, LCSW
Hello! I'm Victoria and I am passionate about helping individuals with OCD address their concerns head on and try to reduce OCD's effect on life. I try to strive for a balanced approach to life and treatment by offering challenges when it is effective and finding self-compassion and warmth in tougher times. Treatment is not a linear process and I want to help individuals through the peaks and valleys of challenging OCD.
I offer individual therapy to adults (over the age of 18) within the state of Pennsylvania via in-person services and telehealth.
