Founder of East to West Counseling + Licensed Professional Counselor


Valerie is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Connecticut and holds a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Professional Counseling Psychology. She approaches both life and the healing process holistically, recognizing the connection between the mind, body, soul, and spirit. 


In a compassionate and collaborative manner, Valerie embraces the uniqueness of each client -- taking into consideration each one's personality, strengths, and cultural background.  Her style of counseling involves creating a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere where clients can achieve a deeper sense of self-understanding, and ultimately find the passion to face life with courage, wisdom, and joy.

Originally from the New England region of USA, Valerie has lived and worked around the world in various countries including the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, and Indonesia. She brings extensive experience with people from a wide range of social backgrounds, nationalities, cultures, and faiths.  She particularly enjoys working with internationals and helping them recognize the incredible opportunity that living abroad can offer for personal growth and transformation. 


Valerie has been living in Germany since 2002, where she shares her life with her Austrian husband and their two daughters.
