One morning I woke up, looked in the mirror and did not recognize myself. I had been “happily married” for 16 years with wonderful children, but I felt distant from them, like I really did not know them. I felt that I had lost that unique part of me that made me and gave me confidence and connected me with others.
At 38 I had accomplished many of my career goals. I had successfully founded my own company, establishing myself as a well-known professional in my area of expertise, yet with all this focus on business I had become unbalanced. I felt like I had gained much success in business and among my peers, but I found that this success didn’t really mean much to me without my wife and children by my side.
I searched for help but was not able to find anyone that was able to reach me where I was…at least not till I met Valerie. I felt that she was able to hear me, accept me for where and who I was, and provide intuitive, straightforward, no nonsense counsel and feedback. When you work with Valerie, she’s able to accurately and quickly pinpoint the real issues, and make for a really productive and meaningful coaching session. What I’m able to accomplish on my own is to muddle through the challenges I’m facing. Each time I’ve met with her it’s propelled me 3-6 months of what I’d do on my own. The clarity that she’s been able to bring up in a single session would take me months on my own. So meeting with her for 6 months is like 10 years of working on my own.
Valerie’s skillful coaching has caused me to stand taller; see clearer; listen more intently, process my emotions, feel more wholly/holy, and has helped provide the courage that I needed for me to be me…How truly grateful I am for your influence in my life!
Now my relationship with my wife and family is better than it ever was, and I feel content and connected with them. I look in the mirror and feel good about myself again. And because of Valerie’s holistic approach, I’m now a more productive business manager, and work more effectively with my clientele. The reality is, I’ve never had so many people tell me that they want to work with me; call and say “We just want you to do this project;” meet with me and say, “Wow what a dynamic, amazing individual; I want to work with him.” And so coaching has had a tremendous financial impact on me, as well as my confidence, ability, and satisfaction with who I am.
