Valentina Strong, PhD received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology in Los Angeles.  She is a contract therapist in the youth program at Domestic Abuse Project, and has worked for many years in a variety of non-profit social service and community mental health agencies in California and Minnesota.  Valentina provides group therapy services for children and adolescents at DAP who have experienced or witnessed domestic violence. In therapy, Valentina uses primarily a family systems, attachment, and developmental approach to working with clients. She believes children and adolescents know a lot more than they are given credit for about their own needs and solutions and benefit most from a genuine, caring, and consistent relationship that encourages them to use their strengths for fostering growth.
