VICTORIA SARGENT, LAC Licensed Associate Counselor


Owner / Supervisor / Counselor


I am the Owner of InnerConnect Counseling, Supervisor and Licensed Professional Counselor practicing in Gilbert, AZ. I earned my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling at Argosy University, and I am also a proud alumna of Arizona State University where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. During my time at ASU, I was honored to serve as the Treasurer and then President of Psi Chi, the International Honors Society in Psychology.

In private practice, I specialize in working with individuals who experience a wide range of issues including anxiety, stress, stage-of-life challenges, faith changes, divorce, self esteem problems, and blended family issues. I also have extensive experience working with high-achieving teens as well as older adults who are faced with chronic health concerns, end of life decision making and changes in abilities.


I believe that the most important aspect of therapy is the trust, respect, and alliance that is created between client and therapist. I hope that you are willing to share your story with me.

Detailed bio coming soon! 


Licensed Associate Counselor


I focus my practice on a holistic approach to mental health, taking into consideration all aspects of the person: mind, body, and spirit. I believe in creating a collaborative environment with my patients to enhance trust, safety, and healing. My goal is to create a place where individuals feel heard and can safely process through their concerns in order to learn and implement effective choices in their life, while building healthy boundaries in their relationships.

I am a graduate of University of Phoenix where I earned my Master’s degree in Mental Health Clinical Counseling. I am also an alum of Arizona State University where I earned two previous Master’s degrees focused in Memory, Trauma, and Social Injustices. This education, along with recent trainings, has assisted my focus on those individuals who experience daily challenges with anxiety, depression, anger, mood dysregulation, impulsivity, self-esteem issues, adjustment to change, and relationship concerns.
