Version 2psychology-today Victoria Harley, PsyD verified by

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Virginia, and a licensed psychology associate in Washington, DC. In DC, I practice under the supervision of Dr. Alison Howard, a licensed clinical psychologist with over 15 years of experience.

I received my B.A. in psychology from the University of Michigan and doctorate in clinical psychology (Psy.D.) from The George Washington University. While at The George Washington University, I served as an Instructional Assistant for a graduate-level class on psychodynamic theory. I was also awarded an early career psychologist/graduate student scholar award from Division 39 (Psychoanalysis), Section VIII (Couples and Families) of the American Psychological Association.

I have been providing psychotherapy  and assessment services to clients in a variety of treatment settings since 2012. I completed my pre-doctoral internship in 2015 at Montana State University’s Counseling and Psychological Services, which was accredited by the American Psychological Association.  I am currently engaged in post-doctoral work in private practice and in the non-profit sector.

As a clinician, I tend to work from psychodynamic and relational perspectives.  In the context of a supportive, dynamic therapeutic relationship, we will work to understand how you think, feel, and act in the world and in relationships based on your experiences. By making links between the past and the present, we can gain insight into your current struggles and relationship dynamics, change maladaptive patterns, reduce psychological symptoms, and achieve the kind of change you want to see.
