~ Client Reviews~

"When I went to see Valerie I was so stressed out and nervous so I was surprised by how comfortable I was when I first began with her. I'd never seen a therapist before.  It's so pleasant to work with someone who is so attuned to my needs.  Every time I leave her office, I've gained some kind of new insight about what's been holding me back in my life and where I want to go next. I'm much calmer in my everyday life."           --Andrea, 56 years


" Valerie is an extremely intuitive and compassionate person...willing to look deeper.  Through my work with Valerie, I was able to heal the physical symptoms that were occurring as a result of mental anguish.  Valerie helped me do mind-body work that directly addressed painful symptoms. She is a unique therapist...from the moment you walk into her office, you feel like you are with a wise, non-judgmental friend...We all need to have someone to affirm our humanity; Valerie does that and more."                                                                           --Megan, 26 years


" Valerie is so easy to talk with about anything. The atmosphere is relaxed. I enjoy most being able to just be myself when I see her.  She relates so easily to all the issues that come up, calmly and with a quick and non-judgemental response."          --Connie, 41 years


"I felt so broken when I decided to go back to therapy.  I had gotten disconnected from who I really am and what I wanted. I've worked with several therapists over the years and have usually felt it helpful.  When someone really listens to you, it feels great, but I needed more then that.  Valerie has really helped me clarify my goals.  Sometimes she captures exactly what's going on for me when I can't put words to it myself!  I feel so much better and am much more hopeful."     

                                                                             ---Donna, 52 years


"It is always so peaceful and quiet, like she is truly concerned about her clients.  As she helps others who are struggling, here she is trying to balance her own business and family life, doing the same things that we are.  It's inspirational to know that she survived [her own Postpartum Depression] and is happy now as we can also be with her help."                   ---Jackie, 36 years


"I enjoy Valerie's openness and eagerness to help.  She's so welcoming, always making me feel like I am not the only person who has gone through hard things and that I really can overcome.  She's like my personal cheerleader!  After every session, I feel like I can accomplish anything that I put my mind to."                                                          --Erica, 28 years


"It was hard to just go through each day sometimes and I felt so insecure. Coming to Valerie has really helped me feel better in my life.  I am much clearer on what I really want in my life.  I'm getting closer to my goals a little at a time.  It's a relief to know I have support from someone who's so non-judgemental.  I didn't realize how much I was bothered by what others might be thinking about me. I've been able to let some of that go now."  ---Tom, 47 years

                                                                                  

"When I first came in, I was confused and hurting. Valerie is so down to earth, easy-going and relaxed. You can tell that she is truly concerned about her patients.  She helps me make sense of things and makes me feel so comforted in the way  she understands.       --Chris, 38 years
