Dr. Valdez is a very supportive counselor who not only listens and validates my feelings but also takes time to explain possible reasons why I am feeling depressed and gives me many tools/ exercises to overcome it. Learning about depression, what causes anxiety, and logic behind my body's and mind's expressions has helped me overcome the stigma that comes with the word depression. I no longer feel like a broken and crazy person. I am hopeful and I know that what I am feeling is temporary, just like a cold. My mind is having a rough time processing all that is happening around me but with the help of exercises and medication, I am on track to overcome depression. My sessions with Dr. Valdez have made a world of a difference; his support and guidance have made me feel like myself again and full of hope!
Very personable and reached out to on multiple levels and offered me many many resources for dealing with my issues. Very compassionate, kind, and understanding.
Dr.V- He’s caring, very easy to talk to and very flexible with what i need and I really appreciate that I would definitely recommend him to a friend and already did.
