I get it that the moment you are searching for a career coach, it may be a very stressful moment. I wish I could reach out of this page and offer empathy right now.
» Are you having that Monday morning heartache?
» Are you longing to go from surviving to thriving in your work life?
» Do you worry that being introverted is getting in the way of your fulfillment or success?
Oh, I feel for you. It doesn’t have to be like that, I promise!
I’m glad that you’re taking action just by checking out career coaching. Yay!
I know from experience that we can find a way for you to have work that satisfies your heart, your body, and your wallet.
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.”

I can actually have a career that I am passionate about!”

There seems to be a bit of magic to what you do. I try to explain it, but I can’t quite capture it when telling others. I know that this decision to leave my job, and the transition into this next phase has gone so much more smoothly than it would have otherwise. I am more confident moving forward, more aware of my abilities and what I have to offer. I’m staying brave even when fear kicks up.” ~Lauren, Western MA
Yep, Even for You
This can work even for you… [I hear you listing all your exceptions, like “I’m over the hill,” “lack of experience”, “too introverted.”] Yep, even in that specific case too!!
I’ve been there in that burned out place, not knowing how in the world it could all align for me. And I turned it around, with help from a career coach and learning about introversion.
As for those relaxed successful people you’re feeling jealous of? Even they have been there too. You’re not alone.
I help people find the overlap between their passions, their natural style, and what the world wants to support. That overlap exists for everyone!!
Everyone has unique gifts inside them to offer the world, but they often can’t see it themselves. Once we uncover your gifts, everything is easier.
If you don’t clarify your heart’s desire, you will have a harder time finding and succeeding in your work. Really.
Even your current work can start feeling better when you find your internal clarity and confidence. You’ll find yourself naturally speaking up and getting more of what you want.
Going for “good enough” may actually be getting in the way of your finding something good! 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.
Is It for You?
My coaching services are perfect for you if all these are true:
- You want to enjoy a fulfilling sustainable work experience.
- You are open to self-employment as a path to bring your best self to the world.
- You want to include a sense of intuition, spirit, heart, or internal alignment in your work life.
- You like the sound of clarifying your unique values, purpose, strengths, and vision.
- You sometimes feel reluctant to put your true self out there.
- You relate to being introverted or somewhere in the middle between introvert and extrovert (“ambivert”).
I know I’m following my calling because all 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.
You can be anywhere since coaching works great via phone or Skype. If you’re local to me in Northampton, MA (Western Mass), we can meet in person.
I don’t help with this:
I don’t coach people who “just need money” or who don’t care about having meaning at work. I get that we all need money, and we’ll solve that, but if that’s your prime motivator, I don’t believe your work life will be sustainable, and it’s not what I’m about.
If your primary need is to get help with a job search or to move up the corporate ladder, that’s not my focus, but I can provide referrals. My work is focused primarily on deep clarity and confidence, and especially self-employment careers.
