Welcome to VDA Coaching!


I invite you to ponder three simple questions: 

  • Are you successful in a certain area of your life, yet feel            disconnection and lack of satisfaction in others? 

  • Is overwhelm a regular emotional state for you?

  • Do you desire to feel greater joy more consistently in life? 


If you answered yes to one or more of the above questions....consider reading on.  It is my passion to support you in experiencing the most outstanding life imaginable.  This means there are certain behaviors, patterns, conditions, and beliefs that are necessary to 'clean up'. As a Connection Coach for over two decades, I have witnessed the main theme among my clients to be a lack of connection with Self, 'the who we are in present time'. The result?  We inevitably end up allowing our past pains, wounds, traumas, external or internal limitations dictate our future.

‘The Disconnection Epidemic'

The combination of our increasingly fast-paced lives and the inundation of technology has made it considerably easier to disconnect. As a society, we are experiencing what I consider, ‘The Disconnection Epidemic', where true connections that satiate our spirits and nourish our hearts are no longer given priority. The more severe consequences of this epidemic can be seen in the staggering rates of health issues, depression, obesity, violence, and pollution, but it can also be felt everyday as a general sense of unhappiness and dissatisfaction. For many, the pressure to perform, be productive, and tune into technology constantly is daunting. If we are not filling every moment of our day with 'doing', it can be common to feel like we are underperforming.


This busyness serves as a great excuse to disconnect from our relationships, which are what truly fuel us. Our more urban lifestyles allow for an easy disconnect from nature, our food source, and our community. Sitting behind a computer all day, and then going home to watch Netflix allows for an easy disconnection from body, mind, spirit, and emotions. Then add the bombardment of messages from our media telling us we are not good enough, we need more, and that there are so many things in life to fear; how could we not disconnection from our spirit? 

Without consciously connecting through positive and nourishing vehicles, it is easy and understandable over time to feel alone, depressed, and even lost.  Living like this, it is likely and common to experience highs and lows in life, adding to the feelings of being disconnected. More and more people are craving balance, which is a promising sign.

Allowing ourselves to have authentic connection with like-minded people who share similar values and interests, and who show us both tangible and intangible forms of love and appreciation is priceless.  

So how do we bring back balance living in our technological age and busy world?  The answer is by making a conscious choice to love ourselves enough to show up and start doing the work to reconnect to our selves, our relationships, and truly foster growth.

If you are ready to reconnect, I would be honored to be your guide and help light the way to a life of pure vitality and joy. In all of my offerings, I create the space for deep connection and allow for quality time to connect with self, Spirit, one another, and at times nature.

These are the juicy and necessary moments that enhance our lives forever.

It’s time to authentically connect. If not now…when?

Miracles Happen

"Valerie, literally, was a blessing that saved my life.  I was in a dark place before calling her and was contemplating whether I wanted to be on this earth anymore.  I talked with Valerie, and after hanging up I broke down in tears as I felt so grateful that someone would be that present and receptive to working with me.  I felt that there was hope for me.  My work with Valerie went incredibly deep, relatively quickly.  I felt that I was getting solid results, extremely fast.  She showed me there is someone inside me worth loving and today, I am a happier version of myself. - Alejandro R, FL 
Valerie is amazing in both group and one on one coaching venues.  She provides a “safe space” for being vulnerable and truly addressing the issues.  Her coaching style is attentive, thoughtful, straight forward, supportive and highly productive.  Val is very intuitive, kind, informed and powerful.  Having a coaching session with Val helps one stay on track and rejuvenates the mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies." - Gina W, CO
"Valerie has helped me transform my whole life in just over 6 months. I’m not kidding! My beliefs have done a total back flip for the good, and I have grown into myself more than I ever thought was possible at my age. She empowers me to be the best me that I can be. Valerie is one of a kind - you do NOT want to miss out on her magic!" - Gina P, MA
"Working with Valerie was such a pleasure!   Over the course of three months I discovered extreme joy and passion for life.  Valerie's sincerity and zest for life are infectious.  I continue to use the tools she provided to accomplish my goals." - Lisa E, CO
Without Valerie’s intervention (and yes, it did sort of feel like Total Health rehab) I would not be who I am today, which I might say is a woman who loves herself (warts and all), takes care of herself (yoga, eating organic/natural) and takes care of others whether family, friend or volunteering.  Valerie will make a difference in your life. I can’t say that about too many people or resources…but with 100% confidence I can with her." Lorraine D, IL

"I don't know or understand what seems to happen from my sessions with you, but you seem to be a catalyst for some kind of alchemical reaction.- Andy O, CO
