About

Val has woven traditional talk therapy and creative techniques to provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space for individuals, youth and families to work through difficult life experiences. She has extensive experience working with youth and families managing the challenges associated with emotional and behavioral problems, domestic violence, sexual assault, mental health concerns, and various traumatic life events. She believes in an empowerment and strength-based approach while fostering an environment that encourages self-acceptance, self-awareness and growth.
Val's passion for working with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer communities is evident in her artwork, presentations, and therapeutic approach. Her research about safety in schools for LGBTQ youth has been published in Materials & Media in Art Therapy; Critical Understandings of Diverse Artistic Vocabularies, edited by Cathy Moon.
In a warm sunlit space full of art work to tell the stories of others who are redefining their paths you will find a place to begin your own process of healing and change and I am honored to be there to support you.
