Meet Our Therapists

Victoria Lassen, LCSW

Therapist

Therapy is a place where you are invited to reclaim or discover your true self. Loss and pain are fundamental human experiences that come in many forms, but they are not easy to process alone. In therapy, I can accompany you on your journey to understanding, healing and embracing yourself in your truest form. My approach focuses on supporting you through building comfort with vulnerability and accountability.

Gently and effectively, I can help you to let go of what is not serving you and embrace what is. If you are experiencing feelings of anxiety, grief, burnout, low self-esteem, or if you just feel stuck, I can help. Therapy will not always feel easy, but together we can develop the tools to feel more centered and in control of your life. As your therapist, I will help you to identify your individual goals and design a plan to best suit your needs.

Training and Education

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker in New York State. I use various modalities in my practice based on a person’s individual preference or needs including mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and meaning-centered psychotherapy.

I completed my graduate training at Fordham University, where I earned my LCSW. My graduate training was in palliative care and I specialize in major transitions such as grief and medical illness as well as processing shifts in identity and building self-esteem. I am staff at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Mental Health Lecturer at Fordham University.

Victoria is great. I see her every week and it helps me with controlling my anxiety and working towards my goals. I like the strategies she gives me. I will keep going. I would recommend her to a friend.

Victoria helps me process grief after a loss I experienced. This has been a hard year and I avoided going to therapy for a while. Im glad I started with Victoria. It has helped a lot.
