Victoria Vedmed

M.A., Psychology Doctoral Student

Victoria is a native Seattleite who earned her bachelor’s in Chemistry, Biology, and Neuroscience from the University of Washington (Go Dawgs!). She subsequently attended 2 years of medical school in Texas. This experience highlighted the intersection of medical and emotional care as well as the inability to provide the breadth of care she desires.

Victoria subsequently earned a master’s in clinical psychology. She is currently in the second year of her doctoral program in clinical psychology and is acquiring hours for licensure. She provides psychotherapy and assessment services to individuals under the supervision of a licensed clinical psychologist. Victoria’s laid back and approachable style pulls from wanting to understand the whole person medically, spiritually, and psychologically, through psychoanalysis and neurobiology.

At Premier, Victoria is working with our forensic team in providing  psychological and neuropsychological assessment services at our Bellevue location in the area of personal injury and child custody. In this capacity, Victoria provides testing, analysis, and report writing services to individuals involved in litigation in these issues, and follows APA and AFCC guidelines in helping the courts determine best interest outcomes.
