About Victoria

Victoria Shaw

I received my PhD in Cognitive Psychology from Princeton University, and completed my postdoctoral training in the department of Educational and Developmental Psychology at Columbia University Teachers College. I earned my MA in Counseling from Fairfield University and am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a State Certified School Counselor.

Additionally, I have advanced training in a several counseling modalities including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Distance Counseling and Energy Psychology.

My approach to counseling and therapy is holistic, and I draw from a variety of theoretical frameworks, tools and techniques to meet the unique needs of each individual client. I work with children, teens and parents on a variety of life issues including those academic, social and emotional. I also work with adults on the challenges of life transitions, stress management, trauma, parent concerns and spirituality.

I have authored four self-help books for parents, teens and preteens, and I am the mother of two spirited children.

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
