Victory Counseling and Therapy
Hi, my name is Perry, and my approach to therapy involves helping clients to: gain new perspectives, relate differently to their identified problems, and discover more in their stories. I have over 10 years of experience working with youth and families. I have worked within the child welfare system for over 6 years with a focus on supporting adoptive families and achieving permanency for older youth in foster care. I encourage my clients to challenge, explore and reimagine the narratives that they have formed or were formed about themselves. I often draw upon my years of experience working and partnering with youth and families in the child welfare system. I apply several counseling techniques to therapy like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and more. Ultimately, I aim to provide support and practical feedback to my clients as they embark on the path towards self-love, gratitude, belonging, and healing.
I have many years of experience working with families dealing with transitions and challenging behaviors. I’ve worked extensively with adolescents in foster care and adoption. I have a passion for helping people to improve their sense of self by managing anxiety, building self-confidence, and reducing stress. I’m currently providing telehealth in FL and MN.
If you’d like to let go of endless worrying, cycles of self-doubt, and feelings of frustration and shame please consider contacting me. If you’ve experienced a significant life change or are facing challenges related to adoption/foster care let’s talk. Together we can take an in-depth look at your story and examine opportunities for healing and change.
