More about me

Licensing: PhD, MSW, LCSW
Years in Practice: 30
State: GA

My name is Dr. Valerie Quarles. I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and hold licensures in three states; Connecticut, Georgia and South Carolina. I received my bachelor’s degree in Human Services from Springfield College in Springfield, Massachusetts and Master’s degree in Social Work (MSW), with a Clinical Specialization in Children/Families, from Fordham University in Manhattan, New York. In 2012, I received my Doctorate of Philosophy in Human Services with Specialization Social and Community Services from Capella University in Minneapolis, MN.

I am a veteran in working with individuals, children and families and have over thirty years of experience to offer you. Some of my experiences include working with populations such as: children/youth/families, elderly, juveniles, and adults with issues of substance abuse, HIV/AIDS, mental health and domestic violence prevention and intervention. I have also worked with complex trauma, depression, family issues involved in divorce, custody, and family violence situations. Some of my skills involve the use of the DSM-V, crisis intervention, co-parenting issues, mediations, and empowerment skills to assist individuals in becoming self-sufficient.

It is my aim to empower individuals to use their strengths and skills in attaining and maintaining their goals, personal growth, and self-sufficiency. I contend that it is important to positively role model and to teach others the value of caring for themselves and others. I am very eclectic in my therapy approach in which I combine Cognitive Behavioral, Psychodynamic, Problem Solving, Task-Centered, Solution Focus, Narrative, and Crisis. I will personalize our discussion to create a customized treatment plan to assist you in your success.

Lastly, I live by four recipes for a “Happy Life” that are simply….First, “To thy own self be true”…..Secondly, “Be impeccable with your words”. Thirdly, “Don’t take anything personally”. Fourth, “Always, do your best, because the best is yet to come”. Therefore, with each moment, we come closer to reaching our goals. I look forward to working with you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Dr. Quarles has helped my heart and soul understand me a little better. Things about myself I never noticed she found in just a short time of knowing me. I believe finding the right person to talk to can make life a bit easier and that is what Dr. Quarles has done for me. I appreciate her giving me all of her attention when I needed it the most and I would love to one day come back to her.

Dr. Quarles has been an absolute pleasure to work with. From my first session, there was a click and I immediately knew that she would be the one who could help me. She’s an attentive listener, very caring, and genuine. She’s also given me great tools to help me along my journey. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

I have only had 2 sessions with Dr Quarles, but as early as our first session she made me feel like she understood where I was coming from, she made me feel more capable and better about myself in just one session! I can’t wait to continue to work on myself and grow with her!

Dr. Quarles is a good listener. We have talked twice but I feel that I have a good connection with her. I felt better after the first session.
