Victoria Wendell Practicum Student Marymount University

Meet Victoria Wendell

Victoria Wendell, B.S.
Clinical Mental health Counseling Practicum Graduate Student

Victoria Wendell (she/her/hers) is a clinical mental health counseling graduate
student at Marymount University, and is doing her practicum placement at Harmony Holistic. She practices an integrative approach to therapy that seeks to meet each unique person where they are whilst utilizing a combination of techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), intersectionality theory, person-centered approaches, and motivational interviewing.

Victoria holds a Bachelor’s in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
where she focused her research on adolescent development and neurodevelopmental
disorders. Following her undergraduate studies, she served 2 years in the Peace Corps teaching in secondary schools in underserved communities. 

Upon her return to the United States, she moved to the DMV area where she has worked as a clinical case coordinator in an outpatient setting. While in that position, she utilized evidence-based forms of treatment including dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and mindfulness practices. She holds a particular interest in trauma-informed approaches to counseling and welcomes working with clients across genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and religious/non-religious affiliations.

From her various experiences, Victoria has found that as a client’s needs change, so should the therapeutic process. As such, she seeks to create a collaborative relationship with each person she counsels in order to facilitate empowerment and to foster growth, change, and acceptance.
