She is absolutely wonderful. She really listens and I’m just a couple sessions I feel better. She feels like a friend more than a therapist.

I have been working with Valerie over the past few months and she is amazing to work with. It's been such a relief to find a mental health professional who I get along with well and I trust. She specializes in the type of therapy that I was looking for, and I gain a lot from our weekly conversations. She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, and is reliable and empathetic. She adds value to my life through our therapy sessions and conversations!
