I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Pennsylvania with over 35 years of experience working individuals, groups, and couples (women, men, and adolescents) as a psychotherapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including but not limited to depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, grief , OCD, and ADHD. I have supported women and teens in their recovering from abuse, particularly narcissistic abuse. My credentials and life experience makes me uniquely qualified to support these survivors. Members of the BIPOC communities will find culturally informed care and a safe space to discuss the intersection of race, racism, gender, and misogynism.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. We will focus on your goals for therapy, harm reduction, pain relief, and living life on your terms. I de-emphasize stigmatizing labels and focus on symptom reduction. My therapeutic approach is primarily cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with psychodynamics to help identify patterns and functions of present behaviors. I use eclectic techniques to promote self-discovery and light the path to the change you are seeking. The therapeutic process, goal setting, and treatment planning will be tailored to meet your unique needs.
Many speak of living a happier and more fulfilling life. It takes courage to seek it and take the first steps necessary towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to partnering with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Vickee Williams . We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Vickie is amazing! She's super understanding and insightful. She relates to you in a way that is educational and proactive. I am so glad I started working with her.
Vickee is an incredible therapist. I’ve worked with several therapists in the past, but nobody has ever been as informative or as understanding as Vickee. She is a great listener, and she provides very thorough and helpful feedback to everything I say. She makes analogies and metaphors that allow me to fully grasp the lessons that she’s teaching. Her sessions include meaningful insight, reflection, and a sprinkle of humor to keep the mood light and bring out a huge smile! She always concludes each meeting on a positive note and sets goals to accomplish in between sessions. I’ve only been with her for a few weeks, but it’s been life-changing so far, and I cannot wait to see the progress that we will continue to make in the future.
Vickee is the best therapist I ever had. She helped me uncover so much stuff about myself that I never would have been able to connect the dots myself
Just scheduled my 3rd session w/ Vickee. I think she’s great. Probably the best experience I’ve had with a therapist so far. Very attentive, gives great pointers/tips, listens and responds in a timely manner.
Vickee is very compassionate and helps me feel validated in what I'm struggling with. She's a great listener and offers tangible advice
Vickee is an amazing therapist that allows you to feel heard and offers logical/practical skills to navigate your emotions.
Vickee is very helpful, caring, and professional. She listens, comments and gives tailored feedback that is helpful to your individual situation. Vickee is very knowledgeable in her area of expertise and her experience and education show.
