Valerie is a pretty lovey therapist, I have been in therapy from 13 to now my current age of 32. I am welcoming my first child in about 10 days & had fears, depression & anxiety on welcoming our first. She helped me through it, listened and does help! I did get sick a few times and she was understanding that I had to reschedule recently! Unfortunately, I am putting my therapy on hold due to my due date being very soon! But I would love to continue when the time is right with her!!!

At first, I was really terrified. I thought my sessions would have ended in disaster, or leaving me unsatisfied like the other counselors I had. However, Valerie Aikens not only listened to me. She shared a little bit about herself and related to me like we were on the same page. She made me not feel guilt or terrible about my actions. Gave me the courage to love and value myself. She has not only been my therapist, but my friend.
