Valerie Lemon, MA, LPC, Ft. Collins

Ft. Collins

I am passionate about working with children, families, couples, and groups and will work with you to increase your felt sense of self-acceptance and self-esteem while challenging you to experiment, in the spirit of play, with new ways of seeing and being in the world. We will collaborate in creating a safe and trusting space where you can show up with greater authenticity, reclaim disowned parts of yourself, and be free to make new choices around old habitual patterns.
My specialties include Trauma, Depression and Anxiety, Relationships / Interpersonal Difficulties, Life Transitions, Spirituality, Loss and Grief, Sexual Abuse Issues, Cross-Cultural Issues, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Personal Growth.
My approach is always tailored to meet my clients where they are while being informed and inspired by my studies of Applied Existential Psychotherapy, Play therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Systems theory, Trauma-informed care, and Equine therapy.
