Viktoriya possesses a Master’s degree in Family and Marriage Therapy, earned in the state of Florida. Complementing her academic achievements is a Bachelor’s degree in Social and Behavioral Studies from the state of Oregon. Her M.S. was conferred by Nova Southeastern University in 2022. Throughout her postgraduate studies, Viktoriya exhibited a keen interest in aiding families undergoing divorce proceedings. She underwent intensive training in Collaborative Divorce, learning from top-tier experts in the field. An internship opportunity followed, where she worked with Broward Family and Dependency Courts, becoming well-versed in assisting families, couples, and individuals entangled in familial conflicts and legal disputes.
Her dedication continued beyond graduation as she joined the agency and further expanded her expertise in divorce counseling. Concurrently, she took on a role in a private practice that concentrated on divorce care, particularly emphasizing support for men.
During her academic pursuits and subsequent professional endeavors within the realm of divorce and family dynamics, her interest in working with men crystallized. Within the agency, she took the initiative to establish and lead a supportive community for fathers navigating the complex landscape of parenting and co-parenting amid divorce, separation, and strained relationships with their children.
In the spring of 2023, Viktoriya’s path serendipitously crossed with Phil from Dude Breathe during a networking event. Phil’s enthusiasm for expanding men’s mental health resonated with her own ambitions. Their visions harmonized seamlessly, leading them to collaborate on a shared journey to amplify the voices of men across the broader South Florida region
