When Valerie became my coach I was stuck inside myself. I could not clearly see healing and possibilities in my life. Most people look at me and think I’m a lost cause, or too far gone for recovery. Valerie was not one of those people. During our coaching sessions she listened to me and really heard me. I had not been heard before, so having her really hear me and connect was a true blessing. She is understanding and truly recognizes challenges and obstacles that occur in life. She challenged me to search within to find what was best for me. Even when I was at my lowest, hopeless moments, Valerie was there to help me up and encourage me to gain other perspectives and possibilities. She held me gently accountable for the things that I planned to do, and helped me devise other plans when I felt stuck. She gave me and continues to give me unconditional support and care. I never thought I would be this far into my life being as healed and happy as I am. I know I am who I am today because she came into my life.
