Valerie's core value is family. As a wife, a mother and a grandmother, she understands the difficulties that couples and families face going through the ages and stages of life. In her work with clients Valerie seeks to promote communication by amplifying each voice in her sessions to ensure everyone feels seen, heard and safe.
Valerie provides a nurturing and supportive environment that allows clients to reconnect with themselves individually, while promoting connection to their partner and family.
