Valerie Dillon, LMHC – Counselor
My name is Valerie Dillon. Beginning the exploration of your thoughts, feelings and behaviors is a courageous challenge. I view people as experts in their own lives who sometimes need assistance from another in shedding light on what may be getting in the way of achieving goals personally or professionally. Being able to begin this journey in an atmosphere of non-judgement and understanding can help you recognize what you already know, and where areas of growth may be necessary.
I have experience working with people in life transitions, processing issues of grief and loss, in addition to being LGBTQ sensitive. I work to create a safe place for aiding others in realizing that whatever mental health challenges they are facing, they are a human being first. I use Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Narrative Therapy; and sometimes the best tools are the ones we discover together.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Washington. I have a Master’s degree from Bastyr University in Applied Behavioral Science. I have been working in the mental health field for the past 9 years, with individuals and couples. I look forward to meeting with you and assisting you in moving forward in your life.
