Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Everybody needs a little extra push or support from time to time.  It’s not always easy to find the right person amongst your friends and family to listen to you in a way that emotionally protects you and them; so that you can make appropriate decisions and changes that positively affect you and those around you.  We will work together to problem solve old belief systems, current stressors and future concerns.

My practice has two separate tracks that you can choose from.  The first is Creativity Counseling.  This involves helping you to push through certain emotional or psychological barriers that keep you from your creativity.  The second track is a more traditional therapy for people having issues such as difficult life transitions, OCD, anxiety, depression.

Valerie Dugas, Ph.D

Provisional Licensed Professional Counselor (PLPC)

Private Practice in the office of Walter Camos, MS, LPC, NBCCH

I welcome the opportunity to meet and work with individuals and families in need of a little assistance or direction. Born and raised in South Louisiana, I earned my doctorate in Counseling Psychology (2014), and am registered with the Louisiana Licensed Professional Counselor’s Board of Examiners. Over the last 5 years I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and families; and have experience with behavioral disorders, depression, anxiety, parenting skills and coping skills.

I approach counseling from a cognitive-behavioral perspective, where patterns of thoughts and actions are explored to better understand presenting problems and develop solutions.  I strive to foster growth through a strong therapeutic relationship; which will be an enriching environment that provides acceptance, warmth, empathy, trust, and mutual respect. Through a collaborative effort, we will outline presenting problems and facilitate cognitive, emotional and personal fulfillment.
