My counseling service was created to help individual adults and couples untangle the ineffective and unhealthy patterns in life and relationships. Clients receive deep, lasting results with me because we address not just your most pressing problems, but also explore the problematic patterns in life that contributed to your current distress. I have a warm, engaging, open style that provides a trusting environment for successful therapy and change in the lives of my clients.

My specialty area is dealing with sexual betrayal from both sides of the issue. You may find yourself tangled in a web taking care of everyone's needs but your own, being lonely even when with others, saying yes when you want to say no, or being blamed and taking the blame for others responsibilities.

I find it helpful in my practice to be direct and to the point, while maintaining professional and nurturing relationships with my clients. I believe strongly in modeling healthy boundaries and helping clients to strengthen their own. My approach is interactive. I ask questions and give feedback during sessions.

Shirley Valk's Groups

Untangled - Sexually Betrayed Women

This 12 week group will provide an avenue for sexually betrayed women to minimize loneliness and isolation felt while navigating the healing process. It will help normalize the feelings one experiences and provide options for the future while giving tools to improve personal confidence and self-esteem. The format creates a safe environment where all feel included and accepted. Key topics will be covered which are pertinent to specific situations being faced. Time will be allotted for group members to share and process their experiences and emotions.
