Vicki Fetterman, LISW-S (she/her)

Vicki completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with Minors in Human Development and Disability Studies from The Ohio State University, and her Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh. Her concentration was in adult mental health, and she has spent much of her time working in college counseling settings in Pittsburgh and Columbus. Vicki completed a Post-Master’s Fellowship at The Ohio State University’s Counseling and Consultation Service. She has experience working with folks who identify on a wide spectrum of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Vicki feels honored to create space for and affirm all parts of a client’s identity within therapy.

Vicki’s therapeutic style is collaborative and integrative, recognizing that no one approach works for all clients and ultimately clients are the experts of their own stories. She is intentional about working collaboratively with clients to create a space that is non-judgmental, making sure that all parts of clients are able to be seen and heard. Vicki’s foundation is a person-centered approach but pulls from other therapies such as DBT, Internal Family Systems, solution-focused therapy, and feminist therapy. All of Vicki’s approaches are trauma-informed and strengths-based in nature and she believes her role is to assist clients in expanding their awareness and finding understanding of life experiences. Ultimately, Vicki works with her clients to ensure they are able to find peace in living as their full, authentic selves and to heal the parts of their story that get in the way of that goal.

She enjoys working with clients to address their concerns related to LBGTQIA+ identity, trauma, body image, eating concerns, depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, and many other things. Vicki asks for regular feedback from her clients on what is going well within therapy, what is not going well, and whether or not their needs are being met. Vicki works hard to ensure that all clients are able to have their needs met within the therapeutic space and to feel safe being open and vulnerable.

In her time outside of work, Vicki enjoys spending time outside hiking, kayaking, or hammocking with her dog, friends, and partner. She enjoys musicals, baking, reading, playing board games, and watching terrible reality television
