About Me

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California, who is also a certified Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapist. I have over 14 years of experience working in the mental health field and I have served a diverse population with extensive experience with grief/trauma, Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), relationship issues, parent coaching, family relational issues, addiction issues, and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). My experience includes several modes of therapy which include, but aren't limited to the following: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. Throughout my career I have consistently provided individual, couples, family and group therapy. I believe an important part of my role as a clinician is to continue educating myself in order to ensure utilizing the most effective interventions and resources for my clients. Additionally, I believe it is important that I remain active in the movement of diminishing the stigma of mental health issues and increasing awareness, which is also linked to my work with suicide prevention.

I am very passionate about the work that I do and the people I serve. I approach each person as a unique individual and not a disorder or circumstance. I believe in encouragement, empowerment, validation, increasing self-awareness and coming from a strength based perspective. While I believe in empathy, patience and individuality I do believe I have mastered the art of finding a balance between these and challenging discouraging hurdles!

Taking the first step to taking care of yourself is the most difficult step of all and I am honored to be a part of your process! I look forward to meeting you.

Written on Aug 25, 2021 after therapy with Valeh for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, bipolar disorder, coaching, and adhd

Wonderful experience so far ! She allows me to run on and speak freely while making me feel that she listens to everything I’ve said, even when I ramble. This is my first time seeking out a professional therapist as well and she has made easy for me to talk about myself and experiences. As someone who is pretty shy to talking about my past, she makes me comfortable to do so by allowing me to go my own pace while guiding me with advice at the same time. Would highly recommend her, especially for people who are looking to try therapy for the first time.

I've had three sessions with Valeh and I can already see my behaviors changing for the better. Doing this was the best decision I've made all year. I give Valeh the highest recommendation.

Valeh is the best! Look forward to every session with her and love the chat during the week.

Valeh has been amazing. I feel blessed to have gotten to work with her. I could not speak more highly of her.

She’s compassionate, direct, and helps keep perspective. I feel honest and so much stronger. Love my sessions and growth I’ve had with Valeh.

Valeh is intelligent, empathetic, kind, and responsive! I couldn’t ask for better support!

Written on Apr 27, 2020 after therapy with Valeh for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, and self esteem

Valeh was very supportive and it really did feel like I was speaking with a friend, I require a more structured approach to therapy so she didn’t quite work for me but she’s very easy to talk to, very relatable and understanding. I never felt as if I was being judged or that I had to filter myself or be worried about telling her something. Very easy to open up to.

Valeh has been so helpful! I am so happy to have find her. She understand my background, she knows what I have been going through and she has been an excellent support in my life. Thank you so much Valeh!

I have had a number of therapists in my life and no one has come close to the level of amazingness that Valeh brings. I instantly clicked with her and felt like she was talking to me like a human being rather than someone who was hear to speak to me in fancy terms and psycho babble. She frames and offers a new perspective that has really changed the way I see my life and how I process with trauma and anger. I would absolutely reccomend her to anyone seeking help or a listening ear; she will give it to you in an easy to understand method with great feedback and resources to help you move forward with whatever you're going through. I cannot speak anymore highly of her and I am so happy with the level of care and attention she has given me.

Written on Jan 03, 2020 after therapy with Valeh for 1 month on issues concerning relationship issues

I've been working with Valeh for a little over two months now. The funny thing is that when asked to choose male or female, younger or older, while I didn't really care as long as the therapist was good, I chose older male thinking we might have more in common. Somehow I was paired with Valeh and I'm very grateful. She's insightful, non-judgmental, and I felt like I was just talking to a friend, not a clinician. She made sure that I knew that whatever decision I made in my situation, she would support it and have my back. That was very important to me. She also has a good sense of humor and is able to joke back. I like that as well. As I said, I felt like I was talking to my friend. I highly recommend Valeh Inskeep to anyone looking for help.

Valeh is fantastic. Relatable, reliable, easy. She’s really good at just having a great conversation and working in her expertise and support. It doesn’t have that awkwardness that can sometimes be present in a counseling situation.
