Change is hard. We are wired to prefer the status quo: a preference for the familiar.

Coaching consists of a you-centric series of conversations designed to move you past or through your pain point, a kind of personal evolution. What problem is holding you back? Let's put a fresh set of eyes on it. We'll challenge automatic thinking and assumptions to broaden perspective. Together we'll create new insights, understanding and action.


We foster flexibility, a willingness to try new things, and a non-judgmental mindset without any advice-giving.

Evidence-Based Coaching

Coaching draws from positive psychology, adult learning theory, motivational interviewing and new findings in neuroscience.

    Val worked with me for about six weeks. In that time my health improved and so did my attitude. Thank you!
