Psychological Assistants

Professional Help on a Sliding Scale

To offer therapeutic support at an accessible range of price points, I am pleased to introduce my three Psychological Assistants. These professionals are under my supervision while earning their postdoctoral hours and working toward their licensure as psychologists.


Valerie Roberts, PsyD


Dr. Roberts specializes in working with children, teens, and their families.

“I believe that relationships require honesty and transparency, so I strive to model both for my clients. Adolescence is hard, both for the teen and for the parents. Often times the struggle seems to outweigh the reward and we lose sight of how beautiful and necessary this phase of life is. I work to mend family relationships and find joy in the adolescent phase instead of “just trying to get through it.”

Jennifer Scharding, MA


Ms. Scharding specializes in grief work and identity development.

“Do you feel alone and like no one wants to listen to you? Do you feel like your life is out of control and you don’t know who you are anymore? My clients have stated that I offer a stable and consistent environment that provides safety. I genuinely want to get to know you and I want to hear your story. I want to help you feel strong, confident, and independent.”
