Valerie Cleveland


About me

I am licensed in Georgia with 12 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, family conflicts, & trauma and abuse. I also have training and experience working with Veterans to help them find effective ways to cope with PTSD. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.
In addition, I feel that many of us walk through life holding up an umbrella, out of fear of feeling the discomfort of the rain. But at the same time we are blocking out the sunshine. Anxiety and depression are much like this. In therapy I will help you let go of your umbrella. Yes, you will will feel the discomfort of feeling things you may have been avoiding. But at the same time, because you are willing to grow, it shows that you want to feel the sunshine again. I promise I will be with you on this entire journey, and you will no longer have to walk through life avoiding emotional pain. Once it is faced head on, you will feel the joy of life (or the sunshine). To me this is part of the goal of therapy, and I want you to experience joy again without being afraid.
If you like what I say, please start therapy with me. There is no need to be afraid; I am walking with you! Valerie

Love my therapist.. just haven't been able to stay on top of it as I should due to sickness.

She’s truly helping me with my guilt and anxiety issues. I can tell she takes her job seriously and knows how to make it fun at the same time. Thank you!
