I met Valerie just before the start of one of the most difficult times in my life, my divorce. I cannot imagine coping through the pain, anger, stress, and uncertainty of that time without Valerie in my life, coaching me through the hardship. She was able to teach me how to understand and feel my emotions without letting them overwhelm or consume me. Most important, she taught me how to express my pain without letting anger take over the message. I learned how to stay on message so that important negotiations would not slip away into chaos and regression. I learned how to manage my own emotions and perspective.
Since then, these communication, emotion management, life perspective skills have transferred over to my professional life, providing amazing results at my success navigating the challenges of working in the large, corporate, highly political world of Investment Banking.
I would highly recommend Valerie as a life coach for anyone looking to increase their self recognition and focus on life. The impact of having a life coach is tremendous and I would consider Valerie as one of the best.
