About Me

Hello, my name is Valerie Boughner. I have over 20 years experience working as a High School and Middle School guidance counselor and many after school programs that provided crisis counseling with teens that are having difficulties at home, at school, at work, and with their peers. I can help you manage your thoughts and emotions in a healthy way that will improve your life experiences in this world. I was the assigned as the lead crisis counselor at school and helped many teens in despair learn ways to navigate out of a situation that they felt trapped in. I worked as a resource teacher for teens in the special education programs in public school helping teens reach their education goals. I also worked for almost 4 years a therapist with children, teens and their families who have autism and other significant mental health diagnosis.
I would describe my therapeutic approach as warm and empathic while empowering my clients to become the best versions of themselves. .

Valerie is easy and enjoyable to work with. She is trustworthy and non judgemental which makes her easy to talk to . She took the time to understand my therapy goals and has a positive, uplifting attitude. I have worked with other therapists in the past, but my experience with Valerie has been much better than any of my previous experiences. I look forward to continuing working with her.

Amazing soul

Written by C.I. on Mar 30, 2021 after therapy with Valerie for 1 week on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Valerie was my second therapist on teencounseling.com. My first experience didn't go too well and it took a lot of courage to make the shift but I am so glad I did because Valerie is so WONDERFUL! She really cares about you and she listens. For once, I felt like someone understood me. She asked all the right questions and even got me to be vulnerable with her, which is definitely something I struggled with.

I highly recommend Valerie to anyone! She is so sweet and charismatic and anyone would be lucky to be working with Valerie! Thank you for everything!

Work with me!
