HOW I CAN HELP YOU

My clients feel a fire burning within themselves, and a voice telling them that they are capable of so much more.  Frequently, that comes in the form of a voice inside them that is simply screaming "NO!"to parts of their lives.  They come to me to help find yes.

 

You know there is something you want to change. You may be disappointed in your career, and feeling that growl deep inside you that tells you that you were meant to be more.  You may be on the right career path, but struggling to advance, and not fully understanding what is holding you back.

 

I specialize in helping you to find clarity of purpose of what and who you want to be, discover what you need to get you there, and achieve it. In short: I am here to help you to become every bit as awesome as you are meant to be.

COACHING IMPERATIVE

About Me: What I Do and Why

With two decades of experience in corporate America, including two years as a Chief of Staff at Autodesk, and two children at home, I understand the challenges that working parents face finding fulfillment at home and in their careers.

I transitioned to coaching after taking the helm of Autodesk Women in Leadership, an employee resource group.  Helping others to develop their full potential was the most rewarding work I have ever done, more important to me than graduating from an ivy league college and top technical MBA program, building cutting edge technology, leading teams on huge cross-functional software projects, or singing in Carnegie Hall!

 

I've worked in companies from small startups to large corporations and can help you navigate complex environments while establishing and maintaining your priorities. My areas of expertise include:

Building strong working relationships

Establishing healthy boundaries

Setting priorities

Being the parent and partner you want to be

Let's explore what's really important to you

TESTIMONIALS

I didn’t know having a Life and Empowerment coach was so vital to my growth until I met Val. When I met Val, I had to this point grew cynical of all the inspirational courses and read all the books, on the path to self-understanding. However, the last six months with Val as my coach has been a game-changing experience. With her there to guide and empower me, I now see myself in a whole new light - I feel more rational and objective in my decision-making processes and feel deep confidence that had to evade me. Up till then, I found myself in many mental ruts, making slight improvements and falling back into the same patterns that stunted my permanent growth and personal development. 

 

Val, through genuine attentiveness and her professional training,  helped me tackle many of my self-saboteurs, providing me with the tools and techniques that  I needed to self-introspect and reach my goals.  I am for the first time in a long time, genuinely content and feel I can take on the world. Val is more than an Empowerment Coach; she is a Muse, Happiness guide -a must for anyone serious about next level self-exploration.

Before coaching with Val, I didn't have a clue where I wanted to go in my career.  Now, I get to go in the direction I want to go in, and I know what the next steps are.  I have changed: I don't beat myself up, but ask how I can move forward, and I am more willing to take risks.
