I am Valerie Hamaker, a therapist specializing in relationship counseling. I really enjoy working with individuals and couples in all stages of life and weave emotional, physical, and spiritual elements of wellness and health into all of the work that I do. I view all relationship health through the lens of attachment, meaning that I feel that we all can find our greatest joy through a better understanding of how our early relationships shape our current strengths and struggles. I feel that we each have the capacity to enjoy a full and healthy life through better understanding our own stories and through finding strength in struggle and peace through understanding. New relational experiences in therapy can reshape our capacity to relate in healthy and loving ways to old experiences and current relationships. We can truly re-author our life’s stories and learn that no matter what has happened, there are seeds of health and resilience in each of us.
