Val has taught me to believe that it is possible. ALL OF IT. I recommend anyone who is looking for a life change and looking to do their life work to see Val and let in her magic.

It’s time. You’re ready to go from surviving to thriving in your work life, with enough energy for the rest of your life too. I’m glad you’re already taking action just by checking out career coaching. Yea!
Yes, it’s time even in a sluggish economy. It’s the best time in fact!
Perhaps you can relate to these common scenarios for why women come to me for career coaching:
- You’re considering self-employment or other seemingly huge transition in your work but feeling stuck or afraid.
- You interested in your own unique path that matches you and not some cookie cutter path.
- It feels like time to follow your calling or at least have more meaningful work, but you can’t see the path clearly.
- You want to find your confident voice in your marketing and communications.
- Wondering about a “retirement” career.
I know I’m following my calling because those topics thrill me and I’ve had good success helping people fulfill those needs. I saw a career coach myself to help me land here. I’m so grateful.
Grant Me Patience, God, and Hurry.
I get it that the moment you are searching for a career coach, it may be a very stressful moment and maybe you’re feeling rushed. I wish I could reach out of this page and offer empathy right now. Here’s some reassurance in the meantime.
I know from experience that we can find a way for you to have all these at the same time:
More You. More Ease. More Impact.
I Can Have It All?
Those three qualities (above) actually need to go together. The more you live your true calling or essence (“more you”), the more ease you’ll enjoy, and the more impact and success you’ll have in your work and/or work transition. Likewise, the more you bring your natural style and easeful approach to the equation, the better everything works.
Thus, those are the three ingredients in my Black Swan Formula:
More You = More Ease = More Impact
Yep, Even for You
This can work even for you… [I hear you listing all your exceptions, like "bad economy," "lack of experience", "too introverted."] Yep, even in that specific case too!!
I’ve been there. As for those relaxed successful people you’re feeling jealous of? Even they have been there too.
I help people find the overlap between their passions, their natural style, and what the world wants to pay for. That overlap exists for everyone!!
I am convinced that if you don’t clarify your heart’s desire, you will have a harder time finding and succeeding in your work. Think about that.
Going for “good enough” may actually be getting in the way of your finding it! That was the lesson of “The Ugly Duckling” fairy tale. You can’t be successful being a duck if you’re really a swan! Let’s find the swan in you.
Everyone has gifts (“superpowers”), and once we uncover them, everything is easier.
If you’re skeptical, I bet I can prove it to you in our initial call. (Watch out how much you wager in the bet, because I have convinced many people.)
My Career Coaching Specialties
I help heart-centered women who want work-life harmony. I help you hear and follow your calling. If you only want someone to help you find any next job or to write a resume, you’re looking for a career counselor, job coach, or resume service.
These are my specialties:
- Transitioning from employment to self-employment, or considering it
(It doesn’t have to feel like jumping off a cliff! I’ve done it, and so have countless people — successfully.)
- Coaching for business owners
- Coaching for introverts
- Coaching for independent-minded souls who don’t fit in any box
- Career coaching for your “retirement” career (your “second act”)
If you’re a woman who likes the idea of following your calling and carving your unique path, you’re probably right up my alley.
