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.

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 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.

Written by S.A. on May 21, 2017 after counseling with Valerie for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship, family, and self esteem

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.

Written by R.O. on May 21, 2017 after counseling with Valerie for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship, family, and grief

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.
