About Victoria Foster
Victoria L. Foster has been practicing therapy for eight years. Her first clinical experience was with the Harris County Juvenile Probation Department where she provided individual, group, and family therapy for youth on probation.
After completing her Master of Education in Counseling from the University of Houston, Victoria accepted a position as counselor for a Houston Independent School District middle school in Southwest Houston. She provided counseling and education services for adolescents experiencing familial and community violence, food and shelter insecurity, gang involvement, drug and alcohol abuse, and truancy issues. After leaving HISD, Victoria went to work for The Village School, a private school in West Houston, where she acted as middle school counselor. She provided therapy for adolescents and families struggling with depression, anxiety, adjustment and attachment issues, Pervasive Developmental Disorders (Autism, Asperger's) and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. In addition to her direct clinical experience, Victoria conducted research with the University of Texas's Sexual Psychophysiology Laboratory specializing in female sexual disorders.
Currently, Victoria’s practice focuses on women's issues, relationships, and adolescent and teen issues. Victoria provides individual, group, couples, and family counseling from a relational and attachment perspective.
areas of focus
Some specialized areas of interest we will explore in therapy are mother/daughter relationships, codependency, emotional flooding (especially anxiety), trust and intimacy, self-doubt, and motherhood. The goal of therapy is to identify who you are, what you need, and what you deserve from your relationships.
Strong connections are key to a person's well-being, yet relationships are hard work and are often our biggest source of unhappiness. Using emotionally-focused therapy, you will learn to repair conflict, communicate more effectively, and become deeply connected to your partner's internal world.
adolescents and teens
Family dysfunction is not abnormal and is almost guaranteed when living with an adolescent or teen. In therapy, the child will work through their confusing emotions by establishing healthier coping skills and more effective communication. The parent will learn new ways to support their child through this difficult period of life.
