Jefferson Team


Valerie Harris MSW, LCSWA

I earned my Social Work degrees from Troy University and am a member of the National Association of Social Workers. I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with co-occurring disorders such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, grief, and trauma.  I believe that each person's journey is unique, which is why I take a person-centered approach to therapy. By building a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients and empowering them to take an active role in their own healing, I create a safe and supportive environment for them to explore their thoughts and emotions. I incorporate evidence-based techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Integrative Therapy. By combining different therapeutic modalities, I am able to tailor my approach to each client's individual needs and goals.
