Ms. Valerie Girod

Counselor , MA , LPC

(520) 549-3083
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and I have offices in Peoria, Avondale, and Surprise Arizona. I graduated from the University of Oklahoma. I have 17 years of experience in the social service field and have been a Clinical Director for several programs in the valley, but enjoy providing therapy to individuals and families the most. I work with children, adolescents, and adults providing individual, couples, and family therapy. I believe my life experiences as well as my education have assisted me in providing excellent services to the people I work with. I understand that taking the first step towards getting help can be the most difficult and look forward to gaining your trust and helping you regain peace and happiness in your life.
