About Valerie Kuykendall-Rogers
Valerie specializes in helping adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse identify and develop healthy and sustainable attachments across all types of relationships. Valerie focuses on the impact of childhood sexual abuse and has witnessed how much it disrupts one’s ability to form healthy and lasting attachments or relationships (including personal, professional, and familial). Working primarily with adults, Valerie conducts individual and couples therapy to include pre-marital, marital, divorce discernment and/or divorce transition. Valerie’s approach is integrative using a blend of evidenced based practices such as Gottman Method, Developmental Theory, ACT, CBT, Mindfulness practices as well as Existential theories. Valerie also ascribes to a neuro-cognitive behavioral therapy approach blending both the ways in which neuroscience and brain functioning intersects with cognitive and behavioral responses to trauma. In addition, Valerie believes in a transpersonal approach as she interprets and understands sexual trauma to impact the entire being (body, mind, and spirit). Valerie believes in the value of forming a strong therapeutic alliance and it is via this formation and building of a trusting relationship that true change can occur. Valerie also believe in the resiliency of each client and their capacity to rise above the pain and hurt from the past in order to forge their desired future. As such, she operates from a wellness and strengths-based approach when counseling individuals and couples.
