about me

Valerie Grant

Sitting down with me is probably the best way to get a sense of my therapeutic style. I hope this information will also help. Please feel free to call or email me with questions you may still have.

In your therapy, I’ll draw on the following approaches, tailoring them to fit your particular concerns and the kind of person you are: Attachment, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Client-Centered, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Existential, Emotion-Focused, and Dialectic Behavior (DBT).

I’ll encourage you to stay active in your own counseling by stretching yourself to express how you feel, and articulating questions you may have. You may also want to do your own research and reading outside the therapy room. I may sometimes ask questions that feel challenging, and I will always support you and encourage your expression of honesty.
