Hey You! I'm glad we found each other.

My name is Valentina. I craft expanding and revealing journeys into the subconscious to heal what is hidden away, so that you can live this one life on earth with ease, as the person you truly are, and a heart-filling sense of purpose and wholeness.


I work mostly with Internal Family Systems (IFS) - an innovative, effective, and evidence-based model for personal, relational, and societal change - and Psychedelic Assisted Therapy, integrated with Mindfulness, Tapping, and other Altered States of Consciousness modalities.

My areas of expertise

Anxiety & Depression

You are not your anxiety, and you are not your depression. They are just the symptom of a deeper disconnection and wound. 

You are SO much more than that.

Let me show you how to get back in flow with life without the fear, dread and paralysis, so that you can find that ease, aliveness, and joy you are longing for.

I could do it, and I know you can as well.

Finding YOU

What if the most "obvious" questions are the the most elusive ones:

"who am I really?"
"what do I want from life?"
"what's my purpose?"

If you are asking these questions to yourself, it's not because there's something wrong with you. You are being called onto a journey of inner exploration, discovery, and expansion.

I'd love to guide you in that journey.

Parenting

Parenting is, by no means, the hardest job on earth.

It pushes us to the end of our rope, to extremes of exhaustion we didn't even think possible.
No matter what kind of parent we decide to be, sometimes the worst of us pours out from some hidden place.

I have lived through it all with my twins, and I know where you are at.

I also know how desperately you wish to meet your child where he/she is. To connect deeply. To show love and acceptance. To be the parent your child deserves.

Let me help: I promise it will be the beginning of the best journey of your life. One into your core self, and into the most nurturing relationship with your child.

Executives & Visionaries

You have a sense of vision and purpose.

Sometimes it's as clear as sunlight... others it fades away under the loud voices of self-doubt, perfectionism, and the fear of "not being good enough".

It's a never ending inner war, it's exhausting and getting in the way of your vision.

I help you find those voices and blocks, and the reasons why they are resisting your vision with such fierce conviction.

I help you embody the confidence, motivation, and joy of bringing your vision to life.

Let's bring your gifts out into the world with a loving and confident heart.

The How

I help you get to the roots of it - usually to some hidden corner of your subconscious. The places that were abandoned, the parts of you that were disowned, the too scary-to-visit-again memories charged with too intense emotions. I use a combination of modalities that are the most effective.

Internal Family Systems

Discover the transformative power of the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model by Richard Schwartz. Meet, understand, and embrace the diverse "parts" within your psyche, while re-connecting to your authentic Self.
IFS therapy can gently address anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship challenges by nurturing self-compassion and guiding you towards profound shifts, healing, and empowerment in your personal healing journey.

Ketamine-Assisted IFS & 

Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy

An increasing amount of evidence supports how psychedelic substances work as catalysers in the healing process, especially when combined with therapeutical models that have access to the same unexplored territory: your subconscious wonderland.
Psychedelic-Assisted IFS: psychedelics can heal deep wounds, show life-changing insights, bring to the witnessing of it all, and open up doors that have been closed shut for decades. I help you weave your experiences in a larger journey of introspection, inner exploration, and healing.

Ketamine-Assisted IFS: Ketamine's safety, limited duration, and outcomes integrate with Internal family systems in wonderful ways, allowing to get to the very roots of what is in the way of a joyful and expansive life.

Integrated and Holistic models of the mind

Through my personal and professional history I have experienced and trained in different models. Some became the very essence of what I do (like Mindfulness to support higher awareness and Somatic therapy to reconnect to the emotions and trauma stored in the body), while others are introduced when needed (like Tapping, Compassionate Inquiry, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and more).

Hello, I'm Valentina

I'm a Change Expert (MA), Certified Internal Family Systems Practitioner, Certified Life Coach, and Psychedelic Assisted Therapy facilitator.

I'm also a polymath, lover of learning, mother of twins, and life-obsessed human being.


What started as a journey into my own healing from generalized anxiety became a longing to belong. To me. To others. To this world and life. Ultimately to this feeling of joyful expansion that life *can* be.


From there came my wish to accompany others to healing what is hidden away in their subconscious, and embracing the totality of who they are, so that they can live an intentional and joyful life expanding and flowing into everything they long for.


I combine the most effective and evidence-based methodologies (Internal Family Systems, Polyvagal theory, Trauma processing, Memory re-consolidation, Altered states of consciousness) to bring lasting joy, presence, and meaning into our human lives.

A fantastic instrument for becoming the happy person that you wish to be

A must do - incredibly efficient and intuitive technique to work on reprogramming patterns of thought and behavior, which drain your health and energy in everyday life. A fantastic instrument for the work on personal development and for becoming the happy person that you wish to be.

In a very simple and intuitive manner, you can dissect the different "protectors" in your thought patterns, and engage with them.

Valentina has a natural and warm capability to create the necessary safe space and guide you through this process of self-discovery and healing.

...where transformation and healing can happen

Valentina meets you exactly where you're at in any given moment and holds space for whatever arises on your journey into new and sometimes uncomfortable territory. Her energy and her ability to compassionately and gently guide you are true gifts and open up the path to a place where transformation and healing can happen.

Valentina is incredibly authentic, effective and gifted.

This work is a gift, it is a huge gift. Valentina has that rare combination of an incredibly alive mind and an open heart. She speaks to both the head and the heart. All of us get stuck and that's ok, but when you find someone who can guide you to freedom you really want to tell your friends about it! If you are one of those people who feels a bit numb and distanced from both themselves and the world then consider what it would mean for you if you could genuinely reconnect with yourself and those around you. That's what's happening for me and I don't think I could have done it without a gifted guide. Valentina is one seriously gifted guide!

Feeling relieved and much more aware

Me before the session: frustrated with emotions and stuff I had no idea how to handle, feeling tossed and turned around and going through the notions.
Me after the session: feeling relieved and much more aware of what's actually going on with me, plus having tools that now I can use when I get triggered to handle the situation positively.
I so appreciate your help!

And then, all of a sudden, everything becomes possible.

Valentina impresses me as she rapidly and intuitively goes to the place where the person’s ​struggles are. And then she calls a spade a spade, but when doing so she is extremely warmhearted, respectful, and eye-opening. And then, all of a sudden, everything becomes possible.

Do you feel stuck?

Restless?

A bit numb?

Do you know exactly where you want to be in life, but feel stuck, restless and keep sabotaging yourself in ways that don't make any sense?

Or maybe you are in your 30s or 40s, and still have no idea about what you want from life... or who you truly are for that matter, while everyone around you seems to have figured it out already?

Or maybe you have a great job, a great life... you have gotten exactly what you wanted... and yet you still feel that restlessness... that never seems to find peace.

That "something is missing" feeling in the pit of your stomach.

I feel you... I really do. 

In my own journey I went down so many rabbit holes to figure out my own restlessness... my own inability to feel the only thing that truly mattered to me: HAPPINESS. 

A journey that took many unexpected turns, took way longer than I thought, and yet brought me way beyond my imagination.

As human beings we possess all the resources and power to turn stardust into anything we can imagine in our extraordinary minds.
 
And at the same time we possess and use that power to unconsciously bury it all.
For oh so many reasons.
And yet: we all have that power.

YOU have that power.

All it takes is learning to allow yourself to feel - into everything you are. 
To feel - into your fears. To feel - into your pain.
To feel - into everything that awaits on the other side of that fear and pain.

Is this a life that makes you feel joy, inner peace, freedom, and wholeheartedness?


Do you feel that calling to be MORE? To feel MORE? To become MORE?

I'd love to help you reconnect to your inner truth, to your power, to everything that awaits behind fear and pain.

Because there is nothing wrong with you. Because you matter.

Because you are a unique brew of wonder and stardust.

And I just cannot wait to see what you can do for this wonderful world when all that - when all of YOU - is out in the open.

With love,

Valentina
