Val on ZoomAll my courses, events, and speaking are especially designed for introverts and highly sensitive people (HSPs) but the principles are applicable for others too. No matter what, I speak from the heart about what’s real.

These days, most of my events are online, so you can be anywhere.

Please subscribe to get the announcements when new options are announced.

I offer these kinds of learning programs:

  • Occasional live classes, workshops, public speaking, podcast interviews. All shown below.
  • Online courses, which sometimes have live calls included.
  • Small group communities for learning and camaraderie together.

Workshop – Coming Soon

“I Love My Client Work, But I Hate Marketing. Then What?”

business marketing stress

A Fresh Perspective on Attracting Clients, that Even Introverts Will Love.
Date TBD (planned for 2021)

If the thought of marketing makes you feel anxious or drained, I’ll help you step into a new perspective —where effective marketing can fit inside your comfort zone.

I am an introvert who discovered more ease with marketing and now have a steady coaching business (helping other introverts). I will teach you some simple principles to make marketing work for you too.

Especially for caring introverts who are coaches or healing arts professionals.
