Val Almeida

M.A., Registered Psychotherapist

Self-growth is a lifelong journey that can be achieved through uncovering personal authenticity. Taking the first step to seek additional support is crucial in promoting change. Meeting my clients where they are at in their journey of growth and change includes utilizing a variety of therapeutic techniques. Forming and maintaining a therapeutic relationship is at the forefront of my approach. A strength-based perspective is consistently used to support clients in flourishing through every aspect of their life. Using a collaborative approach to care, I assist you in finding new ways to handle current life stressors. Together, we foster an environment that supports self-growth, guidance, and reflection to reach your goals.
