Greetings! My name is Valerie and I'm a Confidence & Vitality Coach, Author, and Speaker.
I love helping full-time employees find the vitality and joy missing from their lives, connect to their passion and purpose while establishing vibrant habits and beliefs. I love showing my clients that it's possible to pursue their own creative ideas, to feel fulfilled, connected, and deeply inspired. Often, if not daily.
What stops them is not having the confidence to pursue their dreams.
What stops them is lack of knowledge on making the transition from where they are to where they want to be.
What stops them is procrastination.
What stops them is people-pleasing and caring way too much about what others think.
My mission is to facilitate the experience of freedom in every aspect of my clients' lives. I help them become confident visionaries who regularly take action in the direction of their desires. In support of this mission I became an award-winning author of the book FEEL GOOD KICK ASS CONFIDENCE: USING YOUR BODY TO ROCK YOUR LIFE.
I have facilitated numerous in-person and virtual classes and workshops with organizations such as Playa District, YWCA, American Cancer Society Relay for Life, Growing Educators, Los Angeles Youth Network, Thrive Health Lab, Women Empowering Women Los Angeles, the Los Angeles LGBT Center, and a top 10 tech company.
I am based in Los Angeles and provide services remotely.

I had problems with organization and creating boundaries. I was fearful and I had buried my desires and hopes. Valerie is a gifted coach. She is compassionate and patient. She allows her students to open up and speak from the heart and all the while she gently keeps you focused on your goals and desires. I learned to create boundaries for myself, and unearthed desires that had been dormant in my life and healed past hurts. Now I am on the other side of my desires and I feel lighter with greater focus. More...
Valerie helped me pinpoint some of the reasons my exercise attempts have been unsuccessful. She really made me think about my excuses and more importantly my goals. The ideas she shared about ”Mindset to Minshift” helped to spark a change in the way I defined exercise which will eventually help me eliminate my excuses. More...
N., Workshop Participant
I took Valerie’s workshop in November 2017 at Trans Lounge and I immediately felt something magical about her class. She made me feel comfortable to explore and express myself. Prior to coming to the workshop I’ve had some struggle with my body image and knew that having top surgery would help me but I thought it was financially impossible. So when Valerie asked in class what do we wish to happen in our lives, it took me a moment. But when I said it loud “Top surgery” I felt free and finished the class with a sense of accomplishment. Then a few weeks later, the miracle took place. I found out Cedars Sinai has just started a new program for transgender surgeries and my health insurance would cover for top surgery. When I researched in October this information was not available so I was really surprised. All the insurance paperwork went smoothly and I was able to have top surgery in March 2018. What I thought would be impossible became POSSIBLE in such a short period of time. I definitely believe Valerie’s dance workshop helped me break my limited thinking. Because of it I became open to receive all the resources necessary for my healing. I am so grateful, thank you Valerie!!! More...
