Are you struggling just to get through the day? Do you look to others for approval? Do you feel uncomfortable in your own skin? Do you lack the courage to be your "authentic self"? Have you been acting "as if" you're okay, but really feel like you're "not good enough", "defective", and "unlovable"? Do you feel hopeless? I'd like to help. I am a compassionate and interactive therapist who will provide a safe, and non-judgemental environment where you can safely explore your feelings and develop curiosity about your life. Let me help you rediscover your strengths, your authentic self and your unique truth.

I've been trained in various forms of psychotherapy and use an integrative and eclectic approach to treatment. I specialize in EMDR, a powerful therapy that results in deep, lasting emotional and behavioral changes. Radio interview on EMDR: http://www.wbtnam.org/valerie/NaturalInstincts-071511-ValerieSheehan-Part1.mp3 http://www.wbtnam.org/valerie/NaturalInstincts-071511-ValerieSheehan-Part2.mp3

I deeply believe in my clients' potential for growth, in their ability to change, and to develop self-compassion. People spend years in "talk therapy". They learn to *intellectually* understand their problems, but, "talking" and "understanding" doesn't necessarily *heal*. You must heal the past to change the present. EMDR enables emotional healing to take place.
