We are so thankful and grateful to come to Valley Family Center with our marriage challenge. We feel we have learned a lot from each other at the Center and grown a lot during our sessions. It has really helped us develop a more hope filled outlook.

Violence is never the answer. And that you should always be yourself and not care what people say about you.

At Valley Family Center, they pay close attention to ensuring that everyone that comes into the center is treated with respect and caring.

Former Staff Member

Amazing community resource. Absolutely fantastic counselors! Truly a place that cares. I’d give them 10 stars if I could! So grateful for this wonderful place.

Counseling Client

When you get mad you can calm yourself by listening to music or to think about something else. Also I learned that talking with someone else about your problems can help you take them off your head and not think about it a lot.
