In Person and Virtual Therapy
Compassionate psychotherapy to help overcome challenges, deepen your capacity for connection, and thrive
“You see me as I’ve never seen myself”
– Esther Perel –
I love this quote. It captures the healing essence of therapy. We all need to be seen and known in our authenticity and natural gifts.
I offer a therapeutic space of unconditional acceptance, nonjudgmental listening, and safety.
Let me walk with you to a richer, more fulfilling life.
Hi, I’m Victoria Charles, a licensed psychotherapist (LMFT #121895) in San Francisco. I offer therapy for people who are overwhelmed by relationships, the challenges of daily living, and by the hurts of the past. I’m here to support you on your journey of healing and self-discovery.
Healing through Connection
Together we can unwind the tight knots and stuck places. Feeling safe and accepted in your wholeness is a freeing and transformative experience. Sitting with someone who honors your true self unconditionally can serve as the powerful vehicle to healing. The parts of you that you learned to hide can safely feel seen and valued. You can learn to break the cycle of relating to yourself in harsh ways. Being in a safe, secure therapeutic relationship invites the relaxation response, so you can let go of that tight, tense way you hold yourself together.
You can have more meaning and ease while living from your aliveness. Tending to yourself and your relationships is a catalyst to enjoying your life. Discovering what lights you up can let you step more fully into yourself. It is possible to start thriving as you engage in bringing your true self to the world.
Understand your relationship style
Are you continuously dating the same type of person? Do you find yourself repeating the same patterns in relationships and experiencing the same type of conflict? Do you avoid difficult conversations? Do you frequently feel responsible for other people’s feelings? Let’s explore your relationship style and see what is informing your choices.
Navigating relationships is one of the most important skills you can learn. We will explore your patterns and communication styles that perhaps do not serve you. You can learn to connect in fulfilling ways and to relate to others with trust.
Are you experiencing challenges in your relationship? When you are stuck in your familiar negative cycles it can feel impossible to break out of them on your own. Couples therapy is a powerful way to learn about your cycles and can help you create a healthy relationship. You can make your way back to each other.
