Let's build the tools & coping strategies to overcome any obstacle in your way.
Valery Hidalgo, Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern
My name is Valery Hidalgo. I earned my bachelor's in psychology from Florida International University in 2019 and graduated with my Master's in mental health counseling from Palm Beach Atlantic University in August of 2022. While I may seem new to the field, I have been interning at Berger Counseling Services since 2021 and continue to be supervised by Marla.
I am most passionate about helping individuals with social anxiety and depression. This dedication is due to my personal experience during my early adolescence. I am particularly drawn to working with young individuals because in most instances mental health issues develop at an early age. Targeting the symptoms early during therapy will serve as a preventative measure. This way, children and adolescents can have the tools and coping techniques to walk through any obstacle that comes their way.
My therapy services may look different than a traditional "talk therapist." For instance, I incorporate play, art, and animals into my services. This helps individuals gain insight into their lifestyle thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I believe that observing an individual from a holistic perspective is crucial. I look forward to supporting you and your family.
