About Valerie

I offer a body based, hands-on approach for healing and wellness. After many years of experience and training, I designed a unique approach using a combination of therapeutic processes, including Somatic Experiencing therapy, somatic experiencing touch work, Craniosacral Therapy, counseling, grief and loss, spirituality, and intuitive resources. This blended approach is gentle, healing and restorative; it offers healing and growth opportunities to recognize and release conscious and unconscious painful patterns from the past. The conscious mind determines one's actions, the unconscious mind determines their reactions. This approach focuses more on the body's “memory”, not so much the mind as we know it. This body-based approach is geared towards releasing the body's fear-based conditioning and reactions that interfere with life today. I have been in practice since 2002.  I work with adults, teens and children. This powerful work brings immediate relief and reduces symptoms associated with anxiety, depression, pain, fatigue, learning disabilities and unresolved trauma. 

I am an approved Somatic Experiencing session provider at all levels and provide consultation for beginning level students.  I very much enjoy working with SE students as they learn and discover the gentle yet powerful healing power of SE.  It is personally fulfilling to witness their experience and know that, in turn, they will bring SE to their clients in the future.  

Healing from trauma, be it big or small, is possible and together we work to “re-awaken” the body's natural and inherent ability to heal. I am in private practice and my offices are located in Stamford and Southbury, CT. I can be reached at 203-966-5509. For more information, please go to www.ValerieCandela.com.
