Victoria de Arrigoitia is a Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern. She is an Orlando native who graduated from Rollins College, with her Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy. She completed her Bachelor’s degree in Family and Child Sciences at Florida State University, where she also minored in Psychology. Victoria’s experience includes working with families and children; she is passionate about using a family systemic approach. She has completed an extensive 18-month training in Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) through Florida State University (FSU). This model includes evidenced-based treatment that is used in assisting young children (ages 0-5) to move past trauma and other stressors, with the incorporation of parents and primary caregivers in the child’s life. Through this modality, children are able to share their interpretation of the event, which helps to repair the child-caregiver bond, allowing for the child to heal. Victoria is passionate about helping children and strengthening the child-caregiver relationship. She has been witness to tremendous progress with clients through the utilization of the CPP Model.
Victoria completed her practicum and internship at The House Next Door in Deltona, Florida where she worked with clients who experienced anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, and other mental health disorders. She also received additional training working with their Sexual Abuse Treatment Program (SATP), helping children to move past their trauma. She works directly with Drs. Bradshaw, Brownridge, and Shahid to provide integrated, family-centered care.
