Victoria Behrends - My Bio

I'm Victoria Behrends- RCST®, HHP, MH, M.A., RT, CRM, BSP

Craniosacral Therapist, teacher. If you have interest in what I describe here or need
my experience to help you meet personal goals of Health or learning,
you can ask questions or make an appointment at:
760-753-1493, or go to my contact page.

As a Craniosacral Therapist and Health practitioner, my approach is to be in partnership with a client, working with the whole system in building Health. My approach is about coherent facilitation and skilled support, recognizing the ability and wisdom of the whole system to become more balanced and release restrictions in exactly the ways that are needed to create WHOLENESS.

I work with clients to build resources, continuing the healing and growth that we have accomplished together in sessions in person or by distance. It is exciting and fulfilling work...with the opportunity and freedom to help clients to be confident in Health, making the changes that THEY want.

I am an RCST
® Craniosacral Therapist, with certification and training in Biodynamic Craniosacral and Upledger CranioSacral, Brainspotting, EFT, nutrition, Comprehensive Resource Modeling, energy, self-regulation and relaxation facilitation, Creative Learning expansion, and trauma resolution. I hold a CA teaching credential and a Masters degree. I so love what I do now and am excited about working with people who are open to making changes and who want to be empowered in their Health and their lives.

I have over forty years of consulting, research, and teaching that includes college, secondary, and alternative health. In past years, I've been an Art, ESL, Speech instructor, Traditional Japanese Reiki teacher, communications consultant, professional artist and Theater director in community college and secondary school. Integrated with this experience is my early and current training in energy work, learning from pioneers in the field in the early eighties (Brennan, Hakomi, Armstrong, Silva, and more) to those in the present (see Articles page). My ongoing leading edge study in the latest research, theories and application of new ideas authored and implemented by leaders like psychotherapist Peter Levine Ph.D, Stephen Porges Ph.D (the Polyvagal Theory), Robert Scaer, MD neurologist, Stanley Rosenberg, keeps me excited and up to date. I continually learn new and exciting techniques in several schools of craniosacral training and Quantum energy work as well.

As a native Californian, I enjoy my life in Leucadia and have worked in North County San Diego since 1986. Woven through my life, I am a
happy wife, proud mom and thrilled grandmother and when there is time, a traveler, herbalist, writer and portrait artist.
