Life Transitions

Counseling for couples and individuals in Denver CO


Don't wake up on another beautiful sunny day wanting to crawl back under the covers because you hate your life, are resentful of your partner or the whole world, or simply because you dread facing another day. 

Whether it's a new baby, the loss of a loved one, a betrayal, tension in your relationships, or a recent relocation... sometimes you lose your footing.

You're not sure who you are anymore and you don't know how to move forward.

You deserve to feel happier, more confident, to have the clarity and tools to bring you joy today, and for many years to come.

Valerie Abitbol - Denver CO Therapist - Life transitions counseling

Valerie Abitbol Denver counseling

 Welcome to Flow Counseling!

I’m Valerie,  a licensed psychotherapist in Denver Colorado. I help individuals and couples dealing with major life transitions in the Denver area as they turn their challenges into unique opportunities.

Maybe you've looked for help and relief reading through blogs online and self-help books, listening to people's advice. Maybe you've tried some painkillers, natural medicine or anything that will help you get through your day. But nothing seems to fit your situation, or make a difference.

You feel stuck, alone and scared about your future. And yet, you still say to yourself “It’s not that bad, I can handle this alone” or “It will get better soon, I just need to be a little more patient to feel better.”

Maybe you're considering the help of a therapist, but soon you get overwhelmed by the different options and choices. And you go back to status quo for a little while, until you can't keep it together any longer.

I’m here to help you. 

Unlike blogs and books that offer one-size-fits-all advice, and unlike your friends and family who mean well, but are too emotionally invested to give you clear guidance, I offer you effective tools that are unique to your needs and situation, in a non-judgmental and safe space.

Expats & newcomers in Denver metro, in the midst of a life transition

I particularly love working with expats and their partners, immigrants, and newcomers to the Denver area.

Why I'm passionate about the work I do.

Living away from home tends to amplify the challenges those life transitions may bring: the difficult ones seem more painful, and the happier ones are sometimes bittersweet.

A separation, a major loss or even a new baby may be experienced with more intensity when you’re away from your familiar environment and your main support system.

I’m passionate about this work because I value the diversity of ideas and perspectives a multi-cultural society can offer. 

I believe that out of this cultural mix comes a greater respect for each other's culture, tolerance, and a far more interesting and diverse society.

And I know from personal experience the challenges that living in a foreign country can bring, which is why it behooves me to support others going on the same journey to adjust and thrive in their new “homes.”
