Valerie allows me the time I need to talk through my issues. She's very patient as she listens. She also asks valid questions to help me sort out my feelings and emotions. She is a great guide. I recommend!

I can’t recommend her enough. I loved the space she curated for my healing journey. I was able to learn a lot through her.

Valerie is a god-send! She really understands me and accepts me. She creates a safe space to roam free and discover what we excavate during a session. There is none like her!

Valarie in a short amount of time has made me feel comfortable and safe while speaking with her, I often go into sessions not knowing what I want to discuss and she’s able to pull things out of me through conversation that lead to us discovering unresolved issues I have and we work through them. She’s caring and understanding and has validated my experiences in a way that make me feel safe. I really appreciate what she’s been able to do for me in a few short months I’m looking forward to more sessions
