Valerie is empathetic and non-judgemental. We have phone sessions on a weekly basis. She has a very flexible approach to therapy. I appreciate how Valerie uses the techniques that work the fastest on me. Our sessions are a combination of CBT, ACT, and Mindfulness. I feel like having regular sessions with Valerie has had a great impact on my life. I'd definitely recommend Valerie as a counselor.
I like Valerie a lot. She is very supportive and has a kind presence. I would recommend her to anyone
Working with Valerie has changed me for the better. I now have someone who is both supportive and provides accountability, and look forward to growing in different ways from now on.
Valerie was incredibly helpful. Right from the beginning, I felt I could trust her and that I would be accepted. She was an excellent listener, but also taught me different tools that I can use to help manage my anxiety as well as give me more information to better understand my condition. It was a joy talking with her!
Valerie has helped me get out of my negativity rut that I've trapped myself in. I'm looking at my life through a more optimistic lens now. Her support has really helped.
So far, I have been thankful and pleased with Valerie’s understanding of my problems and why I want to resolve them. A great listener, I appreciate her step-by-step approach as I can sometimes try to get ahead of myself and she already recognizes that. I feel heard and understood and that I can be better, and it is wonderful.
Valerie is filling me with confidence and helping me manage everything that’s going on. I’m very much looking forward to working more with her.
Excellent listener, excellent adviser.
Valerie is a sweet counselor and is sympathetic. I feel comfortable telling her everything and not feel judged. She also responds in a timely manner and offers a live session every week.
Valerie doesn't maintain a strict formal counsellor persona, which makes it easier for me to open up knowing a little about her as well. It allows me to feel like this isn't just a session but almost a guardian angel that sees you better than you sometimes see yourself. I would recommend her absolutely.
Valerie has been tremendous help by taking an understanding but pragmatic focus to the issues I faced. She allowed me to take one issue at a time, which gave me very much needed breathing space. I definitely recommend Valerie's counselling skills.
