Victoria Booth is a Licensed Psychological Associate and Licensed Professional Counselor. She completed her Masters degree in Clinical Psychology at Sam Houston State University in 2015. During this time Ms. Booth gained experience in working with substance abuse as she trained and provided services at the Federal Correctional Complex in Beaumont, Texas. Upon graduation she worked at a private practice completing assessments and doing report writing while also providing counseling services at a community non-profit in Humble, TX called FamilyTime. Ms. Booth explored working with individuals whom had experiences of trauma stemming from domestic violence, tragic losses, or other adverse childhood experiences. In the fall of 2017, Ms. Booth began work at IntraCare’s partial hospitalization program where she provided services in the form of group and individual counseling to adult substance abusers in need of assistance. Ms. Booth became further interested in the impacts of trauma or adverse experiences and how they could contribute to things like anxiety, depression, behavioral or educational concerns, and substance abuse. Ms. Booth also worked at a residential treatment center for adolescent survivors of sex trafficking at the start of 2019 in order to further explore these connections. Ms. Booth has experience in working as part of a multidisciplinary team as well as independently. She has provided services for individuals at various stages of development, which has included assessment and skills training as well as individual and group therapy.
Ms. Booth has worked primarily with youth or adults who have experienced trauma, and are either involved or at risk of involvement with social services. She seeks to give support to those in need by providing space to reflect and explore concerns so that individuals may learn how to heal themselves and better function in the world around them. With this comes the belief that individuals have the choice to accept parts of themselves and experience as well as to make changes to better themselves and their situations. Ms. Booth is interested in providing space for individuals to explore the differences in these things, to make their own conclusions, and to learn skills or identify resources that will help them. She employs a person-centered approach while making use of cognitive behavioral theory in order to assist the individual to make better use of one’s strengths, interests, and skills. She currently provides assessment and counseling services at Moore Mental Health and Behavioral Services under the supervision of Dr. Melissa Moore.
