Victoria Toscano, LMSW
Spending two years world traveling has been an integral part of my own personal growth and healing journey. I was lucky enough to experience much of my travels not as a tourist but as a local. I got to meet and befriend many beautiful individuals from different parts of the world and different walks of life. They spoke languages that I never heard before and practiced customs and rituals that I never thought existed.
One of the most impactful of my trips was my visit to India. There I accomplished my lifelong dream of completing a 200-hour yoga teacher training. I got to visit the Himalayas and learn meditation and breathwork while at a monastery. I also worked with the LHA Charitable Trust Institute for Social Work in India and facilitated the transition of Tibetan refugees by providing guidance, supportive counseling, empowerment, and advocacy services. Throughout my travels, I realized that we are all humans with similar feelings, struggles, and dreams no matter where we are from.
As a therapist, I have helped countless clients overcome depression, anxiety, trauma, and grief. My extensive experience with yoga, meditation, and travel lends to my mindful, holistic, and culturally competent therapeutic approach. In my sessions, I incorporate breath work, muscle relaxation techniques, yoga, creative writing, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, and Humanistic therapy. Clients often report experiencing me as empathetic, caring, encouraging, and motivational.
It is my life’s mission to be an honest, compassionate, and impactful individual in all my interactions. I believe diversity and uniqueness need to be supported to flourish, and that as a society we are stronger when we respect each other’s differences. Outside of work, I love expanding my horizons through travel. I also enjoy connecting people with similar interests to each other. When I’m not a social butterfly, I like to immerse myself in nature; going for walks, watching a sunset, or doing yoga in a park.
