‘What is important for anyone who is contemplating working with Valerie is this, she will take care of your spirit.  She will listen to you.  She will always be mindful of your needs.  And she 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, Entrepreneur, Chicago, IL

Healthy Lifestyle Immersion

The VDA Healthy Lifestyle Coaching 2 or 3-day immersion provides an opportunity to work with Valerie on a more intimate level.

This program was born out of a desire to further investigate the blocks which hold us back from having a healthy relationship with our bodies, where we can feel free and in love with our bodies, experiencing radiant and vibrant health. Through immersive practices, we sleep under the same roof, eat from the same table, and gather tools to implement into our everyday life. 

‘You are the sum of the 5 people you hang around’

Practicing the collected tools, while initiating tremendous change within yourself and others in your life, you have greater potential for your new behaviors and patterns to stick, where lasting change is possible!

This immersion is for you if you are:

  • Struggling to initiate change

  • Experiencing a deep disconnect and even disgust with your physical body

  • Feeling an internal sense of whatever I do is never enough

  • Lacking deep and meaningful connections in life

  • Regularly experience stressful feelings and thoughts about the future, money, career

  • Compromising yourself and your values in order to please others around you

  • Being rigid and stuck in certain ways of being and thinking

  • Feeling exhausted from pushing and forcing in life, yet terrified to stop because you don’t know any other way

Each day will include yoga in the morning, delicious and healthy lunch, afternoon movement and a coaching circle to explore ideas, gain insight from your time spent together. One-on-one coaching throughout the weekend or following will be available for those who attend at a discounted price.

Private Immersions


This two-day immersion is designed for families, where you all have the opportunity to explore and potentially shift limiting beliefs and habitual thinking, which may be you back from having deep, loving connection with one another. When we have deep history and have grown with others, it’s common to experience each other from ‘who were were’ instead of ‘who we are now’. When that happens, we tend repeat patterns that only continue to create more of the same disconnect and dissonance. In our time together, you all will have the opportunity to share, be heard and receive tools, in order to shift these behaviors and up-level your relationships to be more harmonious, accepting and loving.

Structure will consist of two hours in the morning, two hours in the evening. The following day, each family member will have private sessions with Valerie. On the final day, you will all once again come together to have a closing session.

One on one coaching after the immersion for at least two months included, to support everyone in the implementation.


If you are ready to step your life up to the next level, dive deep, get real, and experience a big shift quickly, then working with Valerie in a private immersion setting is the perfect opportunity. In working with people one-on-one, as a couple, or as a small group for hours at a time, Valerie has had the opportunity to witness a profound shift occur in individuals, which sets certain habits into place and solidifies the removal of other patterns that are no longer of service. This is deep, intensive, intentional work designed to create massive breakthrough.

How it works: 

In two or three days, through conversation, time and support, Valerie will assist you in exploring and potentially shifting limiting beliefs and habitual thinking which are holding you back from living the life you truly desire. You will have the opportunity to peel back the layers of ‘not self’ (ego) tendencies in order to create healthier internal and external communication, re-frame and re-pattern from an intentional and spacious perspective.

You will work for up to six hours a day together, and Valerie will use her intuitive approach to design a weekend that will create the largest breakthrough for you. One on one coaching is included and required after the immersion for at least two months, to support the client in allowing the changes to last.

Cost depends on how many hours in the day and does not include accommodations or travel for the attendee(s) or Valerie-if done in a location different from where Valerie is located. Valerie lives in Colorado for the summer and fall, Mexico in the winter, in which case we can design a program in either area, or come to you. Whichever location is decided upon, the immersion must be done someplace other than where you spend your ‘everyday life’.
