I have been seeing Valerie Lamke for about 2 years now, she makes me feel feel very comfortable in her office and she’s helped encourage me to change my life for the better! Very blessed to have came across her!

I have been going to Valarie for just short of a year. I have learned how to manage my ptsd and depression in my everyday life, instead of struggling to hold a job. I am now employed full time, going to school full time and juggling four children. She is amazing at what she does , and helps you find your right path to becoming the best you possible. Thank you for all you have helped me accomplish this year.

Valerie was easy to talk to. I opened up more to her then my last Therapist just something about her made me feel I could trust her.

Professional Therapy with a Client Focus

There are times in life when we can feel off balance and can’t seem to snap out of it. When our own natural support system just isn’t enough, it may be time to reach out to a professional counselor to start the process of therapy. We have created a safe, comfortable and professional environment to discuss the issues in your life. We recognize the importance of a good therapeutic relationship and strive to build a positive rapport. We treat each client with respect and dignity.
