My name is Valarie (Val) Barros, I went to school late in life and have found my calling and passion as a counselor. Over the past 45 years, I have worked in IT, finance, the auto industry, and customer service. I love to pour paint, take hikes, bike, bowl, and hang with my family and friends.
I am excited to be on the team at NorthStar and love working in the residential setting. Even though the time with clients may be brief the impact is often deeper and more meaningful than any of us expect. I am looking forward to serving as the clinical lead and sharing knowledge and lived experience that I hope will enrich our small team at the Women’s Residential Program and the larger NorthStar family.
