About Me

Life is hard and challenging and at times can feel like its too much to deal with. I work on developing a non judgmental relationship with my clients to build trust and understanding so that we can talk about some difficult topics, as we work on trying to make sense of things and learn how to maneuver this difficult path of life. We all make mistakes and struggle on a daily basis, you don't have to suffer in silence.

Valerie has been great to work with, she was able to identify my concerns and helped me work through my troubles. I found her to be friendly, open and easy to confide in without fear of judgement. I am glad that I was assigned to her.
