Dr. Victoria Simon

(Ph.D., MFT)

About Me

My commitment to providing high quality couples counseling is backed by over 20 years of experience (licensed in California and Oregon). Combining evidence-based methods, a comprehensive knowledge of current research and a compassionate partnership with each unique individual or couple, I offer support to help solve relationship problems effectively, repair trust and deepen connection and intimacy.

For couples looking to explore separation or co-parenting with compassion, as a trained family mediator, (Los Angeles County Superior Court, Family Court Services) I have helped hundreds of individuals, couples and families navigate the challenges of separation, divorce and child custody planning.

Our work together will be tailored to your specific goals and will incorporate leading solution-focused, action-oriented approaches to help you create the relationship you want. Trained in Mindfulness and Cognitive-Behavioral models, my practice also includes motivational interviewing techniques to help you move through the ambivalence or resistance that we feel often when facing change.

Since you are the only expert on your relationship, my job is to provide non-judgmental support and help you explore the steps to move forward. I bring hope, optimism, humility and humor to my work and feel that it is an honor to be invited on each new journey. You will be treated with respect, care and compassion while also receiving constructive guidance to help you reach your goals.

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

Please note: I am also specialized in the field of criminal justice, with over 20 years of experience supporting incarcerated and re-entry individuals as well as family members who have a loved one in the legal and/or criminal justice system.

Written by L.I. on Jul 29, 2019 after counseling with Victoria for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Dr. Simon has been great for couples counseling. Sends quotes during the week as food for thought. Encourages me to be open minded and introspective to improve myself to be a better partner. Gives awesome feedback in a respectful and caring way. Would highly recommend.

Dr. Simon is attentive and pushes us to engage in the app even when we think we're doing okay and can set it aside, she reminds us to utilize her and what we're paying for. She responds in a timely manner and makes us feel very safe to explore any of our concerns. We love her!
