Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Valerie has an openness to life, a genuine curiosity about the potential in each moment, and in every encounter. Valerie looks for that spark, for that place in you that is on the verge of coming alive. She knows just when it's time to dig deep, just when it's time to let go and have fun, when to sprinkle some cleansing water, and when to shine some light.

Valerie has an unusually open mind. She's not here to judge, but to explore, to experiment, to feel, to grow, to be... Valerie sees every experience as a learning opportunity. She encourages clients to take risks, and remains patient and flexible always honoring the unique timing, pacing and lifepath of each person.

Valerie thrives in environments based on trust, openness and personal authenticity. She sees uncomfortable feelings as sacred portals through we can discover our life energy, creative potential & relational genius.

Karen L Kleckner, M.A..

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
