About Me

"Raising teens is like trying to nail Jell-O to a wall." That is a quote I heard early in my career and it stuck. If you can relate to this statement then I believe you are meant to be here at this moment. So, Let's get started.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Employee Assistance Professional in Mississippi. I have 27 years experience in the field of mental and behavioral health services. This includes counseling teens from diverse backgrounds on a variety of issues, that includes, but not limited to, adjustment issues, self-esteem/self-worth, emotions management, depression, anxiety, family conflict, and interpersonal conflict. Rapport and trust is paramount in working with teens, therefore, I take an eclectic approach in exploring the best fit for their needs and readiness. Some therapeutic frameworks I utilize includes, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Behavior Management, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, and Positive Psychology.
My training and experience is significant to the services provided, however, it is my commitment in guiding teens with an open heart and an open mind that is unmatched. I believe teens deserves a safe place to be vulnerable as they work toward their optimal level of well-being. I look forward to partnering with you and your teen on this journey.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Valerie Fields. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.

Valerie is a great therapist. She helps me to see other perspectives so I can make better decisions.

Written by T.A. on Jul 16, 2022 after therapy with Valerie for 10 months

Valerie was an excellent counselor for my child. She made her feel comfortable she was able to relate to her and open up. She listened to her and felt that she was the first counselor in a while to be able to give her the tools to help her through her issues. I saw such improvement in her mood and attitude since she has had Valerie for therapist

Valerie is very engaged in her clients feelings . She dissects where the root issue is created and implements ways that suits the client best to heal. I have struggles with childhood trauma, toxic relationships and being a mother with anxiety and Valerie has been the best suited therapist for me because she truly cares.
