The WORST "therapist" there is...

It feels so good to finally be able to tell the TRUTH about "Val"! It Started in 2019 when my bonus daughter had her mom's mom call us stating her mom & step dad had been beating her. There had been at least 2 CPS investigations prior to her calling us. Her mom never told us about that anything. It was basically like we didn't exist. Her mom always claimed her husband was the father, so nothing every made it to us. Somehow Valerie seems to think this is all ok. We had a full "witness statement" from the neighbor of where our daughter lived with her mom stating everything she heard and saw over the years and Valerie said she will get to it but never did. We had put our daughter into therapy when she first came home to us, and she loved her therapist, she trusted her. Valerie told our daughter that that therapist was "pointless". Our individual therapist actually LISTENED to our daughter and our daughter fully trusted her. Valerie didn't listen for *** and actually sided with the Mom. Most of the sessions Valerie would talk about her kids and family history, the other half would be her siding with my daughter's bio mom, or blaming my daughter for what happened. At one point, Valerie sent me some screenshots of something I posted on FB. It literally said, "Every first born daughter looks like the female version of her dad." What's wrong with that? What's wrong with that is, my page is private, so how did bio mom get it? Oh, I know...her husband is a hacker that works for Credit Karma. So Valerie also supports illegal activity (hacking). With all this being said, I feel that I have to point out that Valerie sided with bio mom from the start. She didn't listen to what our daughter had to say despite the reports and witness reports. THIS WOMAN SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN GIVEN A LICENSE TO BE A THERAPIST! There is so much more to our story, I just don't have time. Just google this piece of *** and you'll find lots of stuff like lawsuits against her and her husband! Have a look!

User's recommendation: HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLL NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Valerie Houghton is a violent sex trafficker

Valerie lacks any empathy, although she knows a lot of terminology related to being a therapist. I could tell that she was in it for more than just the money. There was a lot of cruelty involved. She could have helped me in a million different ways and still made about the same amount of money. Valerie left my life in shambles. She also scarred my children. Because her service coincided with an active court case, I was hostage to whatever she wanted to do. Houghton has immense power because of her connections. When I was referred to her, I was merely an investment. She was there to extract all the money. Did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING of any value for me. Even after I fired her she continued to influence my case. Although my experience was quite poor, Valerie is extremely bright and articulate. I would not hesitate to tell people to find someone else.

User's recommendation: Stay away from Valerie.
