Valentina works with individuals of all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and genders. She specializes in treating depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder with additional experience in complex trauma. While these diagnoses provide some information, Valentina doesn’t use labels to guide her course of treatment. Her approach is based on your history, symptoms, past medications, and lifestyle.
Valentina strives to create a dialogue around psychiatric medications that is thoughtful and informative. She believes that psychiatric medications should work with your body to help you ‘be your best self.’
