Under Clinical Supervision

Victoria Nelson, Licensed Master Social Worker, 4406796200 is practicing under the supervision of Brittany Williams (New Jersey, LCSW, 44SC06025800) at Resilience Lab.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I often tell clients, “Your life is your story and you are the author.” Sometimes it seems that life happens to us, and we lose sight of our agency in the story. That’s why I help clients take back control, starting with their mental health. Instead of ignoring their mental health and worrying about everything else in the world, I help my clients get back to themselves and prioritize their own needs. Over the years, I have learned a range of therapeutic tools including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which focuses on addressing your thoughts, and dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT), which helps you cope with strong emotions. I am not a "one-size-fits-all" therapist. I don’t jump straight in with tactics and start offering solutions without understanding the whole picture- I listen and then act. In therapy, I help my clients learn about their minds and bodies and collaborate with them on practical skills that can support their needs. If you’re longing for a happier and more fulfilling life, we can get you there. The most important thing is to recognize your own needs and figure out how to meet them. But you don’t have to do it alone – I'm here to help.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

I became a therapist for the same reason another might become a doctor, a nurse, or a physical therapist. Untreated stress, trauma, and mental illness can wreak havoc on one's life. Learning the biological underpinnings of stress responses assists in understanding ourselves, and I am proud to be a professional who can help clients make sense of both mind and body.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

My top therapeutic strengths are empathetic understanding, attentiveness, and collaboration. You might think you don't need therapy because your therapist is your best friend or mom, but sometimes that doesn't work. Sometimes loved ones don't have the clinical skills to help you in a crisis. Sometimes they’re not good listeners or they don't know how to handle emotions. Working with a therapist who has strong empathy and reflection can make a big difference in your life. I add teamwork because, as a therapist, I'm all about collaboration with my clients. Clients sometimes tell me their previous therapist forced a certain type of therapy on them without consulting them. I'm here to work with my clients to find a strategy that works for everyone.
