Hi there, I'm Valerie!

My name is Valerie Morales and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York with over 8 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I utilize various therapeutic modalities to fit the individual needs of each client, specifically cognitive behavioral, client-centered and existential interventions. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, parenting problems, relationship issues, trauma, addiction, grief and difficulty adjusting to life changes.

My approach

I support and guide clients to identify their strengths, and increase their confidence and self-worth. Clients are empowered by developing effective tools and coping strategies to successfully overcome current and future challenges.

My focus

I have worked with clients, both adolescents and adults, with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, parenting problems, relationship issues, trauma, addiction, grief and difficulty adjusting to life changes.

My communication style

My approach to therapy is warm and empathetic. I emphasize building a trusting relationship with my clients in a non-judgmental environment.

My journey to mental healthcare

I decided to choose the career path of being a therapist due to many reasons, including personal experiences and encounters with people who have suffered emotional pain. Being able to provide support, guidance and effective tools to improve people's quality of life has been very fulfilling and rewarding.

My goals for you

I approach therapy collaboratively, trusting that each client is an expert on themselves. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

My first session with you

My ultimate goal will be for you to leave each session feeling empowered in your life, confident and feeling more at ease. We will work together to help you get back to the best version of yourself and be better prepared to face life's challenges.
