About Me

Hello and Welcome! My name is Valerie and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who works in-person and online to meet my clients needs. Through my own healing journey, as well as my extensive clinical experience and training spanning over 10 years, I have learned to create a healing environment for my clients to process traumas that have occurred in their lives and recognize the effects trauma has on their current relationships. My goal is to help you find that light switch in order to let your own internal light shine through. As we move through different life events, we are all bound to find ourselves needing help and support in time of turmoil. My goal is to help you feel supported, validated, and heard as you work through traumas, concerns, or worries.

Education & Experience

I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Simmons College of Social Work, a Bachelors degree in Psychology from California State University, Northridge, and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I work with individuals, couples, and families facing a need to process traumatic events, depression, anxiety, relational, and attachment difficulties. I work from a strength-based, psychodynamic approach with your needs and goals as the center of our treatment plan. Please give me a call or email today for us to begin working towards achieving your goals.
