Animo Sano Psychiatry team is growing. We’re excited to welcome our new LPC, Victoria Viola! We had the pleasure to talk with Victoria about her life and experience and learn more about what motivated her to become a part of our team. Here’s Victoria’s inspiring story.
1. What inspired you to pursue a career in mental healthcare?
After growing up experiencing trauma, I was drawn to this field with a passion for helping and healing others.
2. What brought you to Animo Sano Psychiatry?
I was seeking a work culture that I could thrive and grow in professionally. I feel that Animo Sano will provide that.
3. What motivates you?
What motivates me is being able to plant seeds of hope with my clients and walking alongside them as they navigate their healing.
4. Tell us something about you that would surprise us?
I was on Family Feud!
5. What words of wisdom do you live by?
When in doubt, do nothing.
6. Share a recent “proud moment.”
I was working with a client struggling with BPD who felt very hopeless. Not only was the client able to maintain sobriety but they were able to learn distress tolerance and develop healthy skills for regulating their emotions.
