So far, Valerie is kind and understanding.
She’s patient and is always willing to give advice.
I’m glad I can just shoot a text and get an answer in a timely manner, especially on topics that deal with anxiety.

Valerie is a wonderful, empathetic listener and our sessions have helped me to really talk out and process my current challenges (mourning my grandfather and a challenging family dynamic.) I cannot recommend her enough.

She is great. She listens attentively and provides feedback that I need to hear rather than what I want to hear. I cannot wait til I connect with her again.

She is great. Allows you to talk to get out what you want to express and gives you others ways to look at things.

Written by B.R. on Sep 02, 2021 after therapy with Valerie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

My first time meeting with a counselor in general and it was a comforting experience. I’ve never been one to really talk about ME, and Valerie made it easy. Conversation flowed very nicely and there was some laughter, so overall it was a great session.

I've only been working with Valerie for a few weeks but I definitely see an improvement in myself. She helps me feel heard and understood while also challenging me to see things in a different way. I can't express how thankful I am to have her as my counselor
