Victoria Magruder, MSW, LCSW


Title: Director & Therapist

Location: Edwardsville, IL and Telehealth 

Payment: Private Pay, BCBS, Cigna 


Hello! I’m thrilled you are looking for a therapist for yourself or a loved one. Therapy is a safe place to process difficult life transitions, improve coping skills for healthy self care, and be a non-judgemental space to unload those bottled up thoughts and feelings. I believe in the therapeutic  process of advocating for my clients but also teaching my clients to become their own advocate. I enjoy incorporating manipulatives, stories, and activities into my therapy sessions for children to express themselves and practice healthy coping skills. I find it most rewarding when a child can reflect on their social emotional progress and are proud of the skills they have gained. 


I received my Master of Social Work from the University of Illinois Champaign- Urbana in 2019 and achieved my LCSW in 2022. Since 2018, I have been working in public schools with children in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade with disabilities, anxiety, depression, poor social skills, self-esteem, and trauma. Currently, I prefer working with children and adolescents in person at our Edwardsville office.
