I have always loved working with kids and even more I’ve loved helping parents be better parents and advocates for their kids
— Valerie Reyna




Valerie has helped our three daughters cope with a wide range of issues.
She is patient and always has creative, thoughtful suggestions.

Valerie Reyna was just who we needed when my 13 year old daughter was struggling with anxiety and depression. Valerie not only helped her with her struggles, but she taught me how I could best support and encourage her.

The future looks much brighter for my daughter and I know that is because of the work Valerie has done with her...and me.

Our daughter has been seeing Valerie for the past year. I am pleased to say she has truly listened to our concerns, and has provided us with excellent input to improve our ability to effectively parent our child. She makes each visit enjoyable and has given our daughter tools/ coping skills that will benefit our daughter through out life. We have witnessed positive changes over the course of treatment and I know it’s because of Valerie’s continual coaching.

As a parent its difficult to find someone who you can trust, and will be a great fit, and I really feel lucky we found Valerie.

Highly recommend

“Words cannot express our deep gratitude for what Valerie has done for our family. She has been instrumental in helping our son work to develop emotional language and valuable skills to cope with his anxiety and ADD symptoms.

Valerie also has taken the time to help me and my husband develop better communication skills as well. My son always enjoys his time with Valerie and looks forward to appointments! She has helped us work with our son’s school to get the programs that our son needs to be successful.

Valerie is attentive, professional, and compassionate. We have full faith and confidence in what she does.”




If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies.
