Happily married, serial entrepreneur
"I came to Valerie on the recommendation of a close friend who said something along the lines of “if you are going to trust me only once in the entire course of our friendship, trust me on this - call Valerie, and then do what she tells you.” This is kind of what I am telling you, the stranger who is reading this. There is a weird warm magic to her work, and the less you know from the outset, and the more you just let her art carry you along, the happier you will be."
Dina Kaplan, Founder of The Path, NY
"Valerie understands the mind body connection profoundly. She can change your life by building your confidence and smashing the perhaps incorrect "story" you've been telling yourself for years."
Best Selling Author, Spiritual Coach
"Valerie has been an invaluable guide in helping me recognize areas of recent trauma and grief that have prevented me from total fulfillment. Her compassionate strong intuitive perceptions, along with a wide array of tools for body, mind and spirit, resurrect this area of Self beyond any other methods I have encountered...which have been vast and many. I highly recommend her to anyone who wishes to heal, grow, and discover a deeper capacity to love."
PhD, Aerialist, Dancer
"For years we tried to work through trust and commitment issues but kept hitting a wall. Valerie's insights are priceless. She helped us identify and deconstruct some major obstacles in our relationship and the intimacy we have grown together is profound. Valerie helped us connect with and understand each other in a deep and loving way and we even just got engaged. I truly believe we wouldn’t have arrived at this point in our relationship if not for her guidance."

"I didn't know that I needed help with my relationship. I thought it was my partner who needed all the help and I was along for the ride. In a relatively short time, she taught me new forms of compassion and love for both myself and my partner. She brought understanding and communication techniques that were intuitive and easy to implement. Her kindness and generosity set her apart from other coaches I've encountered. I have already recommended Val to people I love and will continue to do so"
Carré Otis- mother, author, activist
"When I was asked to do a Ted Talk I was completely overwhelmed and terrified. Valerie’s coaching enabled me to identify pieces of my story that in fact had not yet been articulated, and as we worked together what came forth on that stage was the rawest version of myself that exists. I had no idea that was the plan but in fact it was the first time in front of any audience that I was not the performer. It was excruciating and liberating and the biggest gift to both me and my audience."
Startup Executive, father of 3, SF
“Feelings of sexual inadequacy and shame dominated my marriage, reinforcing my childhood story that I was not good enough. My work with Valerie has transformed my identity. I am a beautiful man, not fundamentally broken. I am a vessel of great love and worthy of great love in return. I am sexually powerful, far more than merely “enough.” That power is starting to flow throughout my life, with my new romantic partner as well as with my kids and my business.”
Male 30ish, San Francisco
"I was nervous to meet Valerie because I had never really opened up before, but by the end of the first session I felt like I was talking with a friend. Val’s approach allowed me to come to realizations about myself rather than her telling me what was wrong. Thanks to Val I have a positive outlook on life, enjoy living in the moment, and have less anxiety about the future. I am more balanced, have a new career, new hobbies, and enjoy time spent with friends and family again."
Socially Conscious Business Owner
"I came to Valerie with a deep and extensive history of trauma including multiple cases of sexual and emotional abuse and a gaping maternal wound. Valerie helped me see patterns and no longer let them sabotage my happiness. I feel more gratitude and love towards myself and others and a greatly improved self-confidence. The wound around my mother in no longer open and festering- instead there is only a small mark that I wear with pride for who it helped me become in the process."
Health Startup co-founder and Healer
"Working with Valerie and all the modalities she incorporates has been both healing and empowering. I’ve owned my sexuality and learned to honor myself and my sensuality. Ceremony work with my ex partner and I was beautiful and healing. I got connected to my spiritual gifts and healed ancestral wounds and opened up space for my future generations. She is a diamond and her work expands throughout your life in more ways than one. Everyone should have a Valerie on their side."
"Before I met Valerie my sexuality was completely closed off. I was ashamed of it, shy of it, and wasn't even my own friend. The magic that happens cannot be explained, only experienced, and I still feel the benefits today."
"I gained clarity around what I really want from all areas of my life, what I was doing or could do about it, and what was stopping me. We uncovered some childhood sexual trauma that was limiting my permission to attract and pursue partners. We also uncovered some unresolved relationship and parental issues that with her help and guidance achieved closure. I find it easier to engage with women when I feel attraction in social settings and I feel more alive and confident in general."
