Valerie has been helpful and professional and responsive. She shows genuine interest in progress, emotions, feelings, and diving in to figure who, what, when, where, and (most importantly) why.

Valerie has great advice and always makes me feel better when I’m down. She helps me see solutions instead of problems, and asks me the right questions to help me figure out my path forward. She’s a great communicator and responds promptly. I would highly recommend her.
