Individual Counseling Client

Valerie is a warm and compassionate therapist. I felt reassured that she knew what I was going through based on her own personal experience with infertility.

Counseling Client

Valerie was extremely helpful as we were deciding our options in assisted reproduction and deciding if using an egg donor was right for us.

Consultant Client

My experience being in the support group was a life saver. I was able to really lean on the other members of the group and get the help I needed when my family and friends did not understand what I was going through. Thank you Valerie!
