Valerie Beason is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Missouri and has been practicing since 2015. Her private practice is located in Lake St. Louis, MO. She earned her BS from Washington University in St. Louis in Industrial and Organizational Psychology and her MA in Professional Counseling at Lindenwood University.
While Valerie has many years of experience in the corporate world, her passion has always been to help others in some capacity. Along with her private practice, Valerie worked with SSM Executive Health in St. Louis assessing over 1900 firefighters and paramedics for their mental wellness screenings. She has given several mental health presentations to various first responder support groups as well as taken her "show on the road" to many fire districts and departments in the metro-St. Louis area. Valerie grew up at the fire station since her father was a volunteer firefighter for many years and was the fire prevention officer at his department. She has firsthand knowledge of what it is like to live with a first responder and brings this expertise to her practice.
Valerie's presentation is truly an open forum for spouses to ask questions, and talk freely and openly about concerns. With a great sense of humor, Valerie leads and moderates amazing group discussions with the spouses.
