Valerie helped me through a difficult turning point in my life, and helped me find so much clarity about what my root issues were and how to address them. She's intelligent, empathetic, knows when to listen and when to push you to go deeper. Highly recommended!

Dr McCray and I have been working for about two months together. She has been very supportive and understanding even though there are cultural elements at play regarding some of my issues. She is a great listener and extremely professional and her insight is invaluable. I’ve felt that my mental health has greatly benefitted from my time with her.
