Welcome to Resilience Psychological Services.
I’m Dr. Victoria Buttery (aka, the Resiliency Doctor).
Resilience is often described as adapting to trauma, adversity, or significant stressful life events in a way that leads to personal growth.
Many people who experience these stressors develop upsetting, intrusive thoughts, nightmares, persistent anxiety or sadness, insomnia, trouble trusting themselves or others, relationship difficulties, and many other reactions. If this describes you, know that resilience is possible. You are NOT weak or damaged. Rather, you may not have had the time, opportunity, or correct tools to adequately process the difficulties. Many of us never learned some of the underlying principles that foster resilience. In fact, we may have been taught strategies that actually interfere with resilience!
I specialize in helping adults that have experienced trauma, adversity, or significant stressful life events discover their inner resilience. By helping clients gain insight into how their past is impacting them in the present, we then work toward their healing and growth. If desired by clients, sessions may incorporate religious or spiritual beliefs/faith. My approach to therapy is collaborative, individualized, and grounded in evidence-based practices. Clients describe me as warm and approachable.
For potential clients that suspect they may be experiencing symptoms of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): I have extensive experience and expertise in the treatment of PTSD and trauma-related disorders and provide “gold-standard” treatments for PTSD (PE, CPT, and EMDR).
