"The environment is warm and inviting and I felt heard and understood. This is definitely a nonjudgemental practice that offers much more than just a typical therapy session."

I've worked with many different populations in outpatient clinical practice across the United States. My personal and professional background has given me a respect, sensitivity, and curiosity for all ethnicities, cultures, religions and philosophies. I have learned that there are fundamentally more similarities than there are differences among us.
"Valentina encompasses all of the abilities that one would want in a good therapist. She is intuitive, encouraging, and empathetic while at the same time helping her clients to utilize the tools they need to in order to thrive. I highly recommend."

I'm a working mom of two and a wife. My advice has been featured in Boston Magazine and Dr's Oz's The Good Life Magazine. I offer a range of therapeutic modalities, all geared to help you reach your full potential. Whether you're looking for a listening, empathic ear to run some thoughts and ideas by, or looking to go inward to stop repeating the same negative patterns and roadblocks, I will help you tap into your inner wisdom.
My therapeutic style is warm and inviting. I want you to feel comfortable from the moment you enter my office, and heard and understood by the time you leave. Utilizing a combination of therapeutic modalities based on my experience, education and training, I will integrate what I feel is best so that you get precisely what you need.
I was trained as a Mental Health Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist from Nova Southeastern University and The Brief Therapy Institute. I am also certified as a registered yoga teacher through Yogaworks in Boston under the tutelage of Natasha Rizopolous to provide yoga philosophy for those seeking a more spiritual therapeutic experience.
On any given weekend you're likely to find me spending quality time with my family on Cape Cod, coordinating playdates with my friends of 30 years, laying in savasana at my local yoga studio, or attempting to cook healthy meals at home.
Each individual is unique. One-size-fits-all approaches will never help you reach one's full potential. I deliver custom therapy, tailored to you--your unique self, your culture, your self-specific challenges.
"Valentina is a gifted therapist. Her warm demeanor is comforting and inviting. While integrating the principles of yoga, she gives her client's a meaningful and transformative therapeutic experience. The combination of her healing presence, her ability to make people laugh, her insight, and her knowledge based on her experience make her an inspiring therapist and healer.”
"Valentina really empowered me to analyze my reality and then change it to meet my needs. I realized that I can be the driver of my own path. Her support made me take my dreams into action. I will be forever thankful for her help in a very fragile moment of my life."

I’ve sought out training in mental health psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, holistic psychotherapy, and meditation and yoga therapy because I believe that healing and growth comes from the body and mind. Many traumas, health concerns and illnesses have a significant effect on the psyche; vice versa the mind often has an impact on the body and our health.
