Hello, my name is Valerie. I feel privileged that you are reading this to potentially help you, a loved one, or someone you know. I would love to join you on your journey of nurturing your emotional health. My philosophy in counseling is to help others be the best version of themselves, reach their potential with their goals, guide them on how to get there while overcoming any barriers, and to promote healing.
I help treat the following: relief from anxiety and stressors, improving mood, strengthening social skills, self-esteem, healing trauma, infertility, pregnancy, postpartum, strengthening relationships and parenting skills, coping with adjustments, sport performance, cultural issues, and trained in many areas of addiction. I work with children, adolescents, families, and couples.
I am trained in a variety of modalities that I will utilize to best treat each individual, I may utilize: EMDR, CBT, TF-CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Experiential Play Therapy, Dreamwork, Reality Therapy, and Existential Therapy.
I am a trained facilitator for Love & Logic, Triple P, and incorporate those models along with the nurtured heart approach when working with families with children.
I invite you to contact me, and let’s see how I can help with what you are experiencing, or have experienced. Sometimes, because we have had symptoms for a long period of time, we may normalize those things, and through the process of therapy, we can help you acknowledge that you don’t have to live with those symptoms long term, we are here to help you with long term or short term needs.
I offer evening and weekend appointments.
