psychology-today Victoria Harley, PsyD verified by

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the District of Columbia (PSY1001308).

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 was selected to serve as an Instructional Assistant for a year-long graduate course 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 to clients in a variety of treatment settings since 2012. I completed my APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship in 2015 at Montana State University’s Counseling and Psychological Services.  I did my post-doctoral training in both private practice and community mental health. In 2020, I completed a year of advanced training in couples therapy through the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis in Washington, DC. I also participate in an ongoing couples therapy supervision group with other licensed practitioners.

As a clinician, I tend to work from psychodynamic and relational perspectives.  In the context of a supportive 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.
