I have enjoyed working for various mental health agencies and have extensive experience in several areas of counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, in the state of Mississippi and in the State of Nevada, and I have worked with individuals, couples, families and groups. I have worked with children as young as 4 to adults up to age 101! I have assisted clients who struggle with symptoms of anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, relational and self-esteem issues.
I am a mother of seven, including a son on the autism spectrum. I am very in touch with the issues teenagers and young adults are facing today. My counseling style is person-centered. I believe in treating everyone with respect and unconditional positive regard. I will devise a plan of treatment created specifically for you. My personal life experiences, in addition to my education and work history, help me to empower individuals to overcome difficult emotional obstacles.
I know that asking for help can be difficult. Congratulations on taking that first step. I am looking forward to hearing from you and guiding you through the therapeutic process. I worked in a long-term residential facility serving adolescents from 12-19 with serious mental illness and substance abuse issues for 3 years. I was provided with Training every month. I have raised 5 of my 7 children through the teen years and personally know about all the challenges of raising teenagers. I work one day per week in a high school supporting adolescents during this challenging time.

Mrs. Scott is an absolute Heaven sent Angel. I love her and she is so patient with me even when I have a hard time responding and taking/doing the activities she recommends. Mrs. Scott is so positive, welcoming, kind, and has really helped me. I love her with my whole heart.
I am beyond happy to have found teen counseling especially during the pandemic. Victoria is knowledgeable and amazing. I text mostly and this is a form of communication that works well for my anxiety. I have tried over the phone but I usually forget or don't like to talk on the phone.
Was very good in the past, happy to start up with her soon and eager to get my issues dealt with.
Victoria was an amazing choice!
She introduced me to healing techniques for anxiety & depression that have completely changed the way I handle major episodes. She’s been a great stepping stone for in-person therapy and I can’t thank her enough for being there for me :)
Clear and concise, empathetic and friendly.
Just what I need.
She's so personable in her approach!
First, I will say that over the years I have had a couple of instances where counseling was used. Both instances were years ago (once for my first marriage, and once for one of my kids) and I was utterly disappointed and determined that counseling was useless and even figured that the whole concept was a fraudulent way For people to make money. With that being said, Victoria has been amazing! She has changed my opinion on counseling entirely. Now I understand and believe that the right counselor is important. I have recommended her and teen counseling to many people.
She listens well, I feel like she understands, she gives great advice. My experience with her has been very positive.
Victoria Scott is a wonderful lady who’s worked very diligently with me even when I can be a bit unresponsive. She is a saint and I can’t thank her enough for letting me reach out to her.
She great knows what she’s doing and she’s very good at it my daughter really likes her
Victoria is knowledgable, professional, supportive, and will support both parties fairly and with compassion. She is also very friendly and relatable and very easy to talk to.
Victoria is wonderful and helpful!
I have found Victoria to be warm and friendly. She has always been encouraging through a very difficult time for me and given some useful advise to help with coping during a difficult time.
she's great at what she does. Highly recommend her
Victoria has been a wonderful listener and really tries to be supportive and optimistic! Highly Recommend!
Very down to earth and encourages. Also, she provides exercises that are helpful and alternates to help you through things. Great listener, very understanding.
Victoria provides heaps of solid advice, and remembers to ask about past issues.
I have issues staying committed to therapy but Victoria has done great with letting me know she's there for me when I need her and has made me more comfortable in the idea of therapy. I'm getting to the point that I finally feel like I can commit to this and she's doing an amazing job at being patient with me.
I was matched with Victoria as my second counselor on teen counseling. She has been extremely helpful and understanding. The fact that she has even responded to me on her day off just makes me feel like she really cares about the people she is trying to help. Her worksheets are really good at making you think about things on your own, and then she goes over them with you really helping you understand why your mind is the way it is now and how (and that it is possible) to change it into the goal you want it to be. I look forward to more sessions with her and seeing where everything goes!
Excellent response, guidance, and questions. Easy to talk to. I have confidence in her ability and appreciate her time.
I feel comfortable and confident dealing with Victoria. She listens and let me explain myself and understands my points.
I didn't know how it was going to be at first but I am really liking the experience so far.
It is a work in progress. Victoria is helping with the process.
Checks in very frequently. Is encouraging and supportive.
Victoria is wonderful!
Victoria is very quick to respond and understanding of our time limits and restraints. She engages us often instead of waiting for us to turn to her.
I have really loved having Victoria as my therapist. In the very short time that I have been in therapy with her, I feel like I have grown and felt better. Definitely recommend - 10/10!!!
She is wonderful. Only seen her for a short time but she is one of the best I have ever had assigned to me on any platform
Victoria is amazing! She checks in regularly and responds in a timely manner. I love knowing she is always there!
I never really liked counseling before in all the times that I tried it, but I genuinely like talking to Victoria. She’s very kind and patient and makes the environment comfortable to talk in.
Victoria is wonderful. She is accepting and genuine, anything you need to tell her will be met with nothing but positivity. If you are struggling with something that you have shame or guilt about, Victoria will help you and you will not feel judged in anyway. She is a talented counselor with an open mind and a kind heart. You can trust her.
Thank you For helping me Victoria. I am forever grateful.
She is awesome!
She is super patient and understanding. She gets that I don't really know how to perceive counseling yet, and she takes her time and lets me work on my own time. She's really great.
Victoria is awesome. She’s really easy to talk to. She listens well, gives great advice on solutions. She makes me feel very comfortable sharing very personal things with her that I never talk about with anyone.
Victoria is absolutely amazing. She's personable she's quick she's a listener and she understands. Victoria is also a great motivator and very positive and up lifting. She makes it very comfortable to talk with her. I'm grateful that I chose her. Thank you Victoria!
She is amazing, and she truly does care. I have never had anyone to talk to and relate with before her. Not one unsatisfying response yet.
Victoria has been very thoughtful and supportive. She always checks in when I get quiet and ensures that I am doing what is best for me.
I enjoyed talking to her!
I can honestly say I am so empowered now. Thank you Victoria. And of course the website that brought me to you.
Victoria immediately started giving me practical advice for the problems I am facing. She listened and assured me my feelings were justified but she emphasized the importance of not allowing the pain of the past to keep weighing me down. She focused on looking to the future and using what I’ve been through to propel me forward. It means so much to me that I can text her at any time and she will get back to me in a timely manner. She has quickly become someone I can share my thoughts and feelings with. It is clear she cares about her clients and is passionate about her work.
She is a light in a very often dark space.
Victoria responds in a timely matter and is open with communication. She listens and send worksheets which were very helpful to me and considerate. I would definitely recommend Victoria.
Great counselor. The time we have been together shows her experience and care about the patients . She has helped us a lot with our issues, giving a lot of comfort to my relationship with my wife. I can't thank her enough.
Victoria has really listened, digested and provided useful solution to my problems. 11/10!
I love with working with Victoria. Prompt responses that steer me onto a path of discovery.
Victoria has taken the time to ensure she fully understands our situation and our hopes for the future. She's constantly sending great questions, worksheets, and words of encouragement. It's made a huge difference and I look forward to continuing our sessions.
Victoria is very pragmatic and helpful. She responds quickly and helps steer me toward the future rather than dwell too much on what is making me anxious or upset. That's not to say she's not compassionate but I think it is helpful to help me work out how to improve my situation rather than just vent and make no changes. I'm very happy with her help.
Victoria has really helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. She listens and understands me and offers the best counselling and techniques that help you cope,grow and ultimately heal.
Victoria listens, she understands and she helps me to think in a new way. She also helps me to end every session by thinking of something positive, to change my focus, so I don´t get stuck in hard feelings.
I have been using teen counseling for a couple of weeks now. I’m starting to warm up to Victoria where as I’m able to express myself to her because she gives great feedback.
She's been there for me, she encouraged me, she gave me exercises to do and she basically fixed me with few messages. So good, thank you again for your help!
Victoria is very sweet and caring. She listens without judgment and gives practical and relevant advice. She responds very quickly - even on her days off! I’m lucky to have been matched with her.
She is the best ! She helps me alot with my daily life struggles ,also as a mom Herself and i she knows what i go through. Helps me improve my anxiety and depression stages my panic attacks have become low since I started my sessions with her ! She’s just a very open minded calm down to earth person! She replies and checks up on you “doesn’t leave you hanging” even if you don’t have time to have a session she still makes sure your week is going well or not. I as a person who had no time for therapy or any sort of session to control my depression and anxiety this really helps me to cope with my daily struggles. She is just magnifique!
I have nothing but praise for Victoria. She was receptive and very helpful in allowing me to move forward in my life.
Kind hearted, intuitive, always reliable and ready to listen. Lucky to have her!
Very happy, she is very helpful.
She's the best I've had so far, she helps me understand what's going through my mind better than I can and does so while giving me tools to cope with what I need to.
I've had counseling a number of times in the past. Victoria is by far the best counselor I've worked with. She provides a safe, obviously non-judgemental atmosphere, and is focused on helping you in a way that works on your terms.
Victoria understood my issues and tried to assist me from the beginning with suggestions and questions that help the feelings progress and the mind think.
Victoria always listened to me. If I didn't write to her, she would ask how I was and follow up on what we discussed. She's really nice.
Very good listener and observer.
Meeting with Victoria online has been super convenient and non-intrusive. She offers great advise on situations I may need a second opinion on and is a great objective, transparent voice when I have relationship concerns. Sometimes you need to vent to someone and it has offered great piece of mind to be able to talk whenever I want to, as much or as little as that may be.
Victoria gave us a great insight into helping us solve our issues, she is very understanding and sympathetic and a great councillor.
I can't explain how much Victoria has helped me through my rough times! I feel like she is always there when I need her! Alway open and understanding!
She is extremely nice and supportive, especially during my times of need. She responds quickly and kindly to everything you send and offers many avenues to talk and learn.
I like Victoria and I like that when you write to her, she responds back in a timely manner.
I am very grateful to Victoria’s commitment and professionalism in helping me rationalize my thoughts and making a good decision for myself!
She is very responsive and very encouraging! It’s really very much like talking to a good friend who cares! This is my first experience with e-counseling and I think it works quite well! Thank you Victoria!
Victoria checks in on me almost every day and always responds to my messages. If she doesn't hear from me for a few days she messages me anyways to check on me I really appreciate that.
Victoria's great. She really takes a personal and knowledgeable approach in therapy.
She always responds to me in a timely manner, and she makes me feel comfortable and at ease.
She’s great! I like how she contacts me regularly to check in!
When I say she listens and works with you, this is an understatement. Very hesitant with online way of working through counseling, but it’s not the case with Victoria. She puts you at ease and the media aspect is like opening up to a friend on text. Will continue with her! It fits my lifestyle as I work night shift and she’s very accommodating! Thank you Victoria!
Victoria has amazing counseling skills. Her counseling is thoughtful and directly connected with whatever I need. She checks in with me everyday just to let me know she is there for me. I recommend her to anyone who really needs someone who listens well.
She is great really and helps a lot!! She is the only person I feel I can talk to.
