My first meeting with Vivian was in couple’s counseling where she guided me and my husband into a better place in our marriage. Her approach to couple’s therapy involved seeing us both individually and as a couple, which helped us to understand our problems on both an individual and spousal level. Several years later, I found my way back to her for therapy to manage my depression and anxiety (with which I have struggled most of my life). While there are many counselors (and I have met with many), there is only one Vivian! She, more than any other, has helped me to understand and manage the drivers of my anxiety and I can say that I handle problems in my life far better now than I did before I started meeting with her. I feel safe with her; she is compassionate and non-judgmental. No subjects are taboo. Vivian is also very intuitive–she can sense when a topic is uncomfortable and knows just how far to push and when to move back, often gently returning to the topic in a different way or on a different date until I am ready or feel OK enough to go in that direction. I always feel that she has my back and genuinely cares about what happens to me—as an example, she often starts our session with “I saw something that I thought might be good for you” or “how did things go last week with…” I would recommend Vivian to anyone seeking family, marriage, or individual therapy. She is really wonderful.
