The Heart & Soul of Vale

All successful therapeutic relationships are the result of a unique combination of factors. Areas of consideration include: schedule availability, therapeutic approach, personality, session cost, use of insurance, ease of extra-session accessibility, counselor expertise, client expectations, and past experience. Please read our profiles below to find the best counselor for you in your current season. And if you would like help selecting a counselor, please contact our office administrator who is experienced in pairing clients with counselors
