Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Hypnotherapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. Therapy can help you to unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

Valerie specializes in a unique intervention called Walk and Talk Therapy, which combines traditional talk therapy with the physical exercise of walking.


With Walk and Talk Therapy, the client receives the benefit from mental health therapy, while at the same time receiving the benefits of physical exercise—a powerful two-in-one treatment. The simple act of walking while talking out life’s issues creates an environment of possibility and change.

You may choose Walk and Talk Therapy to address issues such as:

·         Mild or moderate depression

·         Anxiety

·         Career/workplace or school issues

·         Relationship problems

·         Family issues

·         Overcoming childhood issues
