Therapy can be scary. The thought of telling some stranger “My business” can be overwhelming! I hear you. and you are certainly not alone! There is nothing “wrong with you,” moreover, “something(s) has happened to you” and you developed adaptive strategies to function… that’s brilliant! However, those strategies may not be as effective right now.
Valerie loves to collaborate with her clients and accompany them in their journey toward transformational healing.
As a trauma-informed, NARM certified, psychotherapist with more than 25 years of experience, my goal is to create and cultivate generational emotional well-being by breaking “generational curses!” I focus on working with my client, in a collaborative manner, to help them heal from the deleterious impact of intergenerational, developmental, and/or complex trauma including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, poor interpersonal/intrapersonal relationships, failed relationships, attachment, narcissistic relationships, and perfectionism by developing greater connection, self-acceptance, and heartfulness.
A Healthy Relationship IS Possible!
