Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Valerie has an openness to life, a genuine curiosity about the potential in each moment, and in every encounter. Valerie looks for that spark, for that place in you that is on the verge of coming alive. She knows just when it's time to dig deep, just when it's time to let go and have fun, when to sprinkle some cleansing water, and when to shine some light.

Valerie has an unusually open mind. She's not here to judge, but to explore, to experiment, to feel, to grow, to be... Valerie sees every experience as a learning opportunity. She encourages clients to take risks, and remains patient and flexible always honoring the unique timing, pacing and lifepath of each person.

Valerie thrives in environments based on trust, openness and personal authenticity. She sees uncomfortable feelings as sacred portals through we can discover our life energy, creative potential & relational genius.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
