Children & Family Therapy | Trauma | Autism | Domestic Violence
Valerie has extensive experience working with children and families and specializes in helping those who have experienced trauma. She believes that adverse experiences such as abuse, neglect, violence, familial separation, or a complicated loss can leave an imprint on a child, making it more difficult for them to tell their story and to cope with everyday challenges. Valerie is committed to creating a safe space where children can find their voice and make steps towards emotional wellness with the aid of a variety of approaches including cognitive behavioural therapy, solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness.
Valerie also works with children and adolescents who struggle with anxiety, behavior challenges, emotional regulation, school refusal, and sleep difficulties. She works alongside caregivers to find ways to best support their loved ones, resolve family conflict, and build lasting, healthy attachment.
