Valerie Schrader

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

- Ferris Bueller  

It may not be a quote from a great mind but it's a great reminder to slow down and enjoy life!

Personal Message

I have a wealth of knowledge and experience working with thousands of people - which is all great - but let me tell you what really matters most: I have been the person who has felt so disconnected, not good enough, and not worthy enough. I've been the person who has struggled and felt lost and like nothing would get better. But I am also the person that came through all of that, and I genuinely find joy in helping others find their inner peace, self-love, happiness, and purpose.


I will meet you where you are, heart open, and support you into connecting to yourself in ways you've never dreamed possible. It's all possible and I can't wait to show you just how true that is!


I've grown up with meditation, so unlike many people, meditation came to me. My dad and grandmother were both meditation leadersome of my fondest memories from my childhood were being at retreats where they and their teachers would lead practices. Between someone taking me to play outside, go to the pool, or getting me endless snacks, I'd sit in and learn to breathe, to connect my chakras, visualize, and bring connection between my mind and body. 

My parents were divorced, and these times were a welcome reprieve because my mother had been abusive. There were a lot of traumas in my youth, and as I struggled through my own depression, I found that outside of therapy, coming back to the practices I learned as a child made a critical difference in my healing. 


I love working with people on a journey of healing and growth who desire to connect deeper to their body and who they are authentically, because I've seen within myself, and the thousands I've worked with, how life-changing that can be.
