Robinson St. Victor
Vital Steps Mental Health Counseling Services is the realization of a calling to serve, encourage, motivate, inspire and support individuals, groups, families and organizations within a community to achieve and maintain an established or projected goal resulting in the satisfaction of living a purpose driven life or experiencing relief from a stressor that prevents one from truly enjoying the journey of life.
Mr. Robinson St. Victor, the founder and Managing Director of this Mental Health counseling service, is a warm, caring, and compassionate person who has dedicated his entire life to the service of others. He is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, a fellow with the American Psychotherapy Association, and a member of the New York State Mental Health Counselor Association. He holds a Master’s Degree in Psychology and a Certificate in Addictive Diseases. Mr. St. Victor builds the practice on the premise that every behavior has an underlying cause. If one can understand that underlying cause, one can facilitate acceptance and help develop coping mechanisms designed to adapt or effectuate change.
Vital Steps Mental Health Counseling Services aims to address a variety of stressors that inhibit members of our community from experiencing peace of mind. The company holds the belief that life is a gift and as such, should be an enjoyable journey – not an overwhelming pointless burden. We address the following issues: Depression, Stress, Anxiety, Self-Esteem, Addictions, Relationships, Grief, and Loss.
I consider it an honor and a privilege when a client affords me the opportunity to be part of their lives. It is an awesome responsibility. One that is not taken lightly. To me, the therapeutic alliance is a key component to effectuate change. It is based on warmth, compassion, understanding, honesty and trust. I will establish a safe place that allows clients to reflect and problem-solve without judgement; a place where they can be “themselves”. I believe clients are the experts in their life. They know what they think and feel. My role is to guide them as they uncover behavioral patterns developed from long held beliefs and attitudes. Once that is achieved, we can begin the hard, but noble work of effectuating change.
