Neutral Game with Val

Hey cool, first post.

Anyone have some tips on neutral game with Val? I've been really enjoying her ability to play both defensively and aggressively (via deadcross/j.Hk and her air dash respectfully), but I've been having trouble dealing with cross-ups and aerial engages. Once someone like Filia, Annie, or Robo manage to get close, I've been having a rough time regaining the tempo of the match. My main assist to help deal with this is usually Bella's Excellebella for 3 vials, but other than that it seems my only option is c.Mp. which usually lets me down due to the mediocre hurtbox change. Am I approaching this problem wrong? Am I being really stupid and ignoring an obvious answer here? Definitely let me know!
