Charly Kaplove, LGSW

Philosophy of Care

Anyone can benefit from counseling if they are invested in the process. I meet clients where they are and work to build a trusting rapport and professional relationship. Together we identify how I can best help them, so they can achieve meaningful and positive life changes. Counseling is a tool to become more insightful and self-aware. I want my clients to know I support and value them, and always highlight whatever individual issues they bring into therapy. It can be a difficult, sometimes painful process, one that I am there to help support the client's emotional growth and potential. I believe it is about the journey of building a trusting relationship, encouraging hope and healing throughout the process. 

I am passionate about raising awareness of the critical importance of mental health in every community. No one should ever feel stigma or judgement. Mental health is integral to our overall well being, and should be given the attention and care everyone deserves to promote a healthy existence. This is true for individuals, families, and our communities at large.

In a world where we focus on building strong physical health, solid educational backgrounds and financial fitness, our emotional health and relationships may not always take precedence.

It can be hard deciding who to trust and I appreciate your consideration. Our therapeutic relationship is important and I welcome feedback to ensure that my approach is working for you. It is my hope that we can work together to foster your personal growth and find long-term solutions that enable you to have the life you want, because when your relationships and mental health are strong, every other facet of your life improves.

Stephanie Valeri, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

Stephanie has spent over 12 years as a nurse emphasizing the importance of therapeutic communication, empathy, and patient education. She understands that she is not just treating symptoms, but a person with a past, present, and future. She feels in helping patients understand their diagnosis and treatment options; they can make the best treatment decisions for themselves. She believes in developing a strong therapeutic relationship where there is open communication and time for questions so the patient feels comfortable when they leave the appointment with their plan of care, and understands the next steps if this plan is not effective. 

Stephanie believes a therapeutic relationship is the foundation of a strong treatment plan. In this line of thinking she takes the time to listen and understand the patient's history so that she can understand not just where they are now, but how they got here. She then works to help her patients meet their own goals for their future through medication management and therapeutic techniques.

Stephanie is a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (across the lifespan). She received her bachelor's in Psychology from Virginia Tech and then her Associate's Degree in Nursing. She has returned to her love of behavioral health and received a Master's of Nursing from Gonzaga University. Stephanie has spent her time as a Psychiatric Mental Health Practitioner focusing on treatment of multiple disorders including (but not limited to):

Emily Laing, LPC

My goal in therapy is to hold a compassionate, non-judgmental space for clients to explore their inner lives and make day to day life better, one step at a time.  I love working with children and adults alike, utilizing a variety of evidenced-based approaches, including child-centered play therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, mindfulness, and dialectical behavior therapy. Underpinning these approaches is a person-centered, strengths-based, and collaborative foundation that empowers clients to build toward goals that mean the most to them. I am especially experienced in addressing anxiety, depression, life transitions, and parenting concerns. I deeply value the wide range of identities and experiences people have and am happy to work with folks of all sexualities, gender identities, races, and ethnicities.
