Ms. Valerio received a BA in Movement Therapy within the Independent Scholars Program at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio where she then continued to acquire a MA in the same field with a concentration in Geriatrics at Goucher College, Towson, Maryland. Her Master’s Thesis focused on Grief-Work and Dance-Movement Therapy with the Elderly.
Several years later, she moved her practice to Clinical Social Work receiving another Master’s degree, MSW, from the University of Maryland-Baltimore Social Work School.
A Clinical Social Work Fellowship at the Yale Child Study Center in New Haven, Connecticut initiated her attention to the young child and adolescent population combined with parent therapy, couple’s therapy, and family therapy focus never leaving behind her interest in the elderly population.
In addition to her academic background, Ms. Valerio has been trained for inter-related fields of Substance Abuse, Divorce and Custody Mediation, Victim-Offender Mediation, EMDR (a therapeutic technique for trauma related issues,) Ministerial certification, Heart-Math certification and Employee Assistance Specialist certification.
She is a Social Work Board Certified Diplomat.
She is presently functioning as an EAP Therapist, Clinical Supervisor for Psychiatric EAP residents, and Clinical Supervisor for Social Work students and LISW candidates.
This is what Molly has to say about her practice:
“I have personally learned from over 30 years in my mental health professional career and from my own inner cultivation that self-awareness and the skills of good coping inner-mechanisms supports a potential for change and a sense of hope and eventually peace. “
