Ms Larkin is very good at what she does and is very helpful.

Written by A.P. on Jan 23, 2022 after therapy with Valerie for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Speaking with Ms. Larkin has been a very helpful tool to process my own thinking and feelings. She listens and asks questions that challenge me to really think and act outside of my comfort zone to improve in the areas I want to grow.

I connected with Valeria from day one. I began therapy with her through messaging and she was very responsive in my times of need. Her approach has been a good fit for me so far, she listens and gives me courage to speak my truth.

I'm very happy with the sessions with Valerie. From the beginning, I was clear what I needed. I needed someone that can tell me what I NEED to hear with me and give me advice on things which I don't know. On our first meeting, I knew that I can work with her. She is kind but will also be direct with me if I have ideas which are not helpful with my therapy. I look forward to work with Valerie on my journey of self-healing.
