What do you love most about your job?

I have been blessed with the skills of helping others find themselves, as well as their best selves, and the coping skills to enjoy this journey that we call life. Someone who has dealt with her health, family situations, marriage, and a multiplicity of issues in my life. I have developed a tremendous coping mechanism to deal with all of life's bumps in the road. What I find about what I do so exciding, is helping others reach the point of happiness within themselves that I have found.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have been an entrepreneur since the '80s; with the upstart, of Heavenly Wheels Transportation. I felt the need to offer the elderly and disabled door-to-door- transportation to and from their doctor's appointments. This company ran for 5 years. I had contracts with the Alamo Area Council of Governments, ( San Antonio, TX). The Parkinsons foundations, the Alzheimer's Association, the Texas Workforce Commotions welfare-to-work program. I sat on the chair of the TXDOT board on transportation for the elderly. I turned my company into a 501(3)c. Wrote my own grant. And who would of believe it all started with a flier, fax machine, and a phone book.

Why should our clients choose you?

In graduate school, many of my fellow classmates, in our ethics class stated "I am in this field, to make money." When my professor posed an ethical question to the class; If you had a client that had just lost his job, would you stop seeing him? Would you work with him on a sliding scale, or would you refer him to a free clinic? While many of my classmates said, that they would have to refer him out, I spoke up and said that this client could be on the verge of a breakthrough. And that I would work with him because, after forming a therapeutic relationship I could not ethically nor morally send him away. Even my professor spoke with me after class. These were her words, " Ms. Valasquez, you probably have been a professional most of your life (she was commenting what we call ('ageism')." My response to her was that she did not know my life story. At one point I was homeless, sleeping in my car. Therefore, I could relate to individuals who have fallen on hard times. And coming to therapy was their only way of surviving what this journey we call life had dealt them. How could I turn them away?

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

In these troubled times, we are living with COVID-19 yet to be contained; As I suffer from M.S and two strokes. Anyone who is familiar with M.S my autoimmune system is very vulnerable. Therefore I choose to conduct my sessions online and remotely. Once our country returns to some normalcy, I will return to seeing clients both remotely as well as face to face.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

At this point, I am strictly doing remote counseling and life coaching my online clients, as well as clients within my location. As far as my corporate motivational speaking, I too am conducting seminars online. Unless the corporation wants the four-hour workshop. At that point, I would come however I would wear a mark and require everyone in attendance to wear a mask. Hand sanitizer must be available at each person's seat. However, I would try my very best to do the seminar online.

Counselling FAQs

Your expert Counsellor will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to advise on what is most suitable. Use Bark to get free quotes and schedule an appointment today.

At your appointment, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained Counsellor who will listen and support you without judging or criticising.
The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems. However, they will not usually give advice or tell you what to do. The Counsellor might sum up what they understand you have been saying so that they can help you to form a plan of action.

Counselling can take place in a number of ways. These include:

  • Face to face session

  • Group session

  • Phone session

  • Email session

  • Online through live chat services or video conferencing software

You may be offered a single session of Counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your Counsellor.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local Counsellors listed will give you a reliable and efficient service to help you feel better.

You could look for Counsellors that are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) which means that they have met the PSA’s required professional standards to practise.

Before you choose a Counsellor, you could read testimonials and read details of the issues they can help with on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too.

Counselling can help with many issues. These include the following:

  • Mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or eating disorders.

  • Physical health conditions such as infertility.

  • Difficult life events such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress.

  • Dealing with difficult emotions such as low self-esteem or anger.
