Coaching for heart-centered people… so you can have:
More EASE. More YOU. More IMPACT.
My coaching clients are making progress on things that were stuck for years.
Val gets results! In addition to her incredible insight, intuition, and creativity, her calming strength provides the perfect space in which to flourish. Her unwavering support encourages me to take steps into areas of personal and professional growth — bountiful areas into which I would not have otherwise ventured. Thanks Val! You’re awesome!

Coaching is a proven method for getting unstuck and living your full potential. It’s a supportive partnership process that works for clarifying and achieving nearly any goal — despite the inevitable fear and roadblocks.
Imagine breaking free of things you thought were completely stuck!
I’ve seen the transformation happen in so many people and I’ve experienced the power of coaching myself. It still amazes me every day.
Can it work for you too?

My Coaching Specialties and Approach
Coaching goes by many names. In my case, you might call me an introvert coach, work-life harmony coach, career coach, small business coach, life purpose coach, or professional life coach. I often say coach to keep it simple.
Even if we’re talking about growing your business, I always include your whole life in the equation, not just your work life, because you’re ONE person and you want to make a life, not just a living.
I bring an intuitive heart-centered approach to my work and I enjoy helping those who value those qualities. I’m not about a quick-fix or pushy approach.
My experience and education make me especially suited and excited to offer these coaching specialties:
- Coaching for Introverts
- Small Business Coaching for Women
- Career Coaching for Women (primarily for self-employment, independent lifestyles, and retirement careers)
- Life Coaching for Women (especially for business owners and independent spirits)
- Marketing Coaching for Introverted Women

I help primarily introverted women who relate to at least one of these groups:
- Self-employed or considering self-employment
- Heart-centered professionals
- Helping professionals
- Reluctant business owners
- People feeling challenged about their business focus, finding their voice, charging what they’re worth, or promoting their work
- People wanting to bring more intuition, spirit, heart, or alignment into their work life.
If you’re an introverted woman who is following your calling or passions, or want to do so, you’re right up my alley!

I don’t coach people who:
- “Just need a new job.”
- “Just need more money.” (I do help with earning more but in a broader context.)
- Want a quick fix.
- Don’t care about having meaning at work. (By the way, you won’t find work very easily if you don’t bring your heart.)
I enjoy working with people in my area (Northampton/Western Massachusetts), and with people outside the area. Phone and in-person coaching are equally effective.
When meeting in person, we meet in my office in Northampton.
My Coaching Qualifications
Being a professional coach is the culmination of my lifetime’s work helping people find inspiration to reach higher. It integrates all my experiences, including as a health educator, human resources manager, small business manager, entrepreneur, teen mentor, communications specialist.
And personally, I’ve been there… as a wallflower not speaking up… on the job burnout track… fearing the self-employment leap… you name it. With the help of a career coach, I got clear and unstuck about my career journey and am now successfully self-employed and living my life purpose. I’m so grateful.
What About Spirituality, Law of Attraction…?
This is one of the most common questions I get. I love these subjects! Let’s find what works for you and tap into it! I don’t impose any beliefs but am happy to share what I’ve seen work.
I will tell you that I believe you have a unique purpose and that if you tap into it, you’ll be happier and you’ll have more impact. I believe it because it works over and over.
And yes, I believe the law of attraction works, as it does in my life. But you have to understand how it works. It’s not what you think. Even skeptics like it once they understand it. (It’s founded on scientific principles.)
I’m a big believer in tapping into your intuition and your heart. I believe we all have access to far more wisdom than we often realize, if we take time to tune into it.
I have developed very strong intuition and I bring it to our work together. I help my clients find their own inner knowing.
My clients start with my stand-alone Discovery Session and then decide whether ongoing coaching is a good fit. Learn more about the Discovery Session and price here. From that page, you can learn about coaching packages and prices.
When you invest in yourself or your business strategically, it more than pays for itself. My clients can attest to this.
You don’t have to spend a fortune to reach your goals, but you do have to invest something — strategically. By the time you wait and try to go it alone, you’ve probably spent or lost far more than you’d spend if you got effective help. Been there.

Val’s coaching has more than paid for itself. Her encouragement to believe in my own worth, to charge appropriately for my services and not to undercut myself when negotiating contracts has been invaluable.
