Victoria Romero, LCMHCA, NCC

Outpatient Psychotherapist in West Raleigh

Victoria Romero (she/her/hers) is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (A12901) and a Nationally Certified Counselor (628022). She earned a BA in Sociology from George Mason University, a Master of Arts in Education from Union University, and a Master of Education in Counseling from North Carolina State University. She holds a Professional Educator License as a School Counselor issued by the State of North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (1186979) and worked as a school counselor in Wake County Public Schools before transitioning to clinical work. As a native Spanish speaker, she provides therapeutic services in both Spanish and English.

Victoria’s counseling style is integrative, flexible, and body-informed. Although treating the mind-body connection is a relatively new approach in therapy, her goal is to create a collaborative environment where clients feel safe to explore unresolved issues and trauma stored in the body. She does this by incorporating mindfulness and grounding practices, body awareness, breathing practices, and gentle yoga into her work with clients, in addition to traditional cognitive approaches.

Victoria’s particular areas of interest and experience are in individual growth, life transitions, anxiety, depression, increasing self-confidence through self-compassion practices, and trauma. As a second-generation Latina, she is also interested in identity development and intersectionality. She predominantly works with adults (23 years & older).

Victoria is certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Triple P Parenting. She has received advanced training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness and Self-Compassion, and Exposure Therapy for PTSD. Victoria is currently working to complete her certification in Brainspotting and is excited to begin the certification process of becoming a Subtle Yoga practitioner.

These days, when she is not working, she spends time walking with her rescue puppy, Dolly, listening to her favorite podcasts, or FaceTiming with her adult children, each of whom lives out of state!
