About Valerie

imageAfter years of working in traditional mental health settings, I quickly recognized that there was a good percentage of patients who needed an integrative approach. Many needed relational treatment to repair relational, psychobiological, and developmental issues. 

Healing from trauma, be it big or small, is possible, and together we work to “re-awaken” the body's natural and inherent ability to heal.
