"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

It’s fantastic to connect with you and I am elated to share a simple, yet profound understanding, which continues to not only transformed my life, significantly impacts the lives of my clients.

I believe we are in constant relationship with everything in life, yet most of us weren’t taught to have healthy relationships, especially the one with ourselves. The lack of healthy connection can lead us to move through life with greater frustration, stress, and even depression, or cause us to look outside of ourselves for a solution.

What I get to do, is point people to discover something different; something which is available and within them in all moments.

When we begin to see our own innate wellbeing is available exactly as we are, we have a greater acceptance of our humanness. The perfection we think we need in order to be happy and feel worthy, no longer seem important and we are able to access more joy and ease in all areas of our lives. The ‘negative’ qualities which we are taught to make wrong or we are patterned to judge, begin to look normal and have less and less of an impact on our general well-being

As I witness life through this ‘lens’, I have sense of freedom, understanding this innate wellbeing does not need to be felt in every moment in order to know it’s true. It’s about experiencing the full range of our human experience, with a deeper trust that we are okay in it all.

I am not pretending to be a Guru, or that I have it all figured out. As dedicated to this path as I am, my neurotic tendencies pop up now and again. I can get tethered to perfectionist habits of thoughts streaming through, attempting to convince me that I need to be the best, or I’m not enough unless I do more and more. What I can say is that my relationship with myself is kinder and more gentle as I move through my life, and I don’t take myself or those tendencies too seriously.

Over the past two-plus decades as a teacher, speaker and coach, I have had the pleasure in sharing the insights I have gleaned with individuals, businesses, couples, teens and groups. Through this soulful journey within themselves, they have not only tapped into their own personal magnificence, they experience less stress, less self-judgement and deeper, more meaningful connections with others and themselves.

My personal mission is to draw out the innate wisdom within you, so you can connect more deeply with your magnificence, and develop a greater trust in yourself and in life.

If you feel drawn to play and evolve with me on this journey, reach out for a 30 minute Discovery Session

‘The funny thing is you were invited from the very beginning and maybe you forgot. Or listened to someone else who forgot. But just so you know, I’m going to keep inviting you, again and again, until you remember. So, you might as well jump in now with me and start living before it gets out of hand.’ Brian Andreas

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

"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
