Valerie has been wonderful to work with. She is helping me sort out my stressors and walking me through ways to cope. Valerie is punctual and respectful when I share personal details about my life. I’m very happy I was paired with her!

Mrs. Pinkney-Duke is one of the best therapist I’ve worked with. She is very efficient, a good listener, and provides solid applicable advice. There are a lot of counselors out there that have either good personalities, and some who manage by being aware of their job duties/ responsibilities. Mrs. Pickney-Duke is a rare breed of counselor that has both and that makes her exceptional at her job. I am sad to be leaving the state and losing the opportunity to work with her. I was only able to afford this because I got a free month trial, but I would recommend both the site and Mrs. Pinkney-Duke to anyone looking for help.

Work with me!
