Valerie is a Registered Psychotherapist who has worked for more than a decade in Community Mental Health. She has experience working with diverse individuals on mental health concerns including complex trauma, suicidal ideation, substance use, and relationships. Valerie approaches the work from an integrative therapeutic framework pulling from multiple evidence-based practices to support individualized needs. At the core of Valerie’s approach is building a strong relationship with her clients to create a stable base from which to explore the impact of experiences on their current selves.

“We are made up of the collection of experiences of our lives and therapy is the lens with which we can focus in on specific stories keeping us stuck. I work with clients in a genuine, compassionate, and non-judgmental manner to explore their understanding of their personal stories. Through honesty, vulnerability, and curiosity, a pathway of awareness is created to support clients in adapting and shifting their choices to align with their preferred futures.”
