Hey, I’m Valerie (they/she), a queer clinician dedicated to working collaboratively with clients to explore healing and growth. I believe that each and every one of us deserves to feel safe, worthy, heard, and respected, which is why my approach to therapy centers client autonomy, compassion, and a liberation mindset. My work also makes explicit room for open and flexible conversations about identity, self-worth, sex, and relationships. How we work together will be guided by your interests and strengths, and the work we do will move at the pace that feels best to you. I offer my training in Relational and Narrative therapies, EMDR, Mindfulness-based CBT, DBT, Hypnotherapy, and, Trauma-Informed care as a complement to the self-knowledge that you already possess.
