About me

My career began with me providing home-based clinical services to adoptive and foster families of children exhibiting a wide range of emotional and behavioral difficulties. After working with children and families I transitioned to provided therapy and case management to returning citizens. I’ve most recently worked as a Rehabilitation Counselor providing therapeutic services and interventions to individuals with seen and unseen disabilities. I have worked with clients of all ages, ethnicity, and cultural backgrounds, with a wide range of concerns including depression, abuse, trauma, anxiety, ADHD relationship issues, substance use, and career challenges.

I believe in honoring everyone unique differences as it allows for growth and increased knowledge. My therapeutic approach focuses on empowering and encouraging individuals through evidence based social work treatment modalities including Cognitive-Behavioral, Motivational and Psychodynamic Therapy.

I offer live video, phone, and messaging sessions. I usually check messages three times a day, seven days per week. Please note that what you see in my calendar may not reflect my only availability, so you always want to check that out with me through messaging first.

I look forward to meeting you.

I’ve been working with Ms. Valerie for over a year now and I would describe the experience as insightful. She helps me hold myself accountable for my actions without judgement or bias. I do not enjoy all of the feedback that I get but I do feel that she cares. Recommend for those who want progress and are willing to do the work.

I love working with Valerie. Very easy to talk to and connect to. I enjoy our sessions and she has been very helpful working through my feelings and emotions each week. I started coming to her when my life was very stressful and overwhelming and I'm very appreciative that I connected with her when I did. I can see my interactions with others changing after working with her.

Valeria has been a great therapist for the short amount of time that I’ve had the pleasure to talk with her. She was very attentive, understanding, and she gave some good insight… I wish I had the opportunity to tell her this myself Unfortunately I can’t afford this service at the moment Valerie and I apologize for the delay in response but I wasn’t able to communicate with you unless I paid upfront which seems very inconvenient but nonetheless Valerie is a great therapist. And if I get the chance to come back to better help hopefully I can have her again. Thanks for everything

Work with me!
