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 - integrated with Tapping (EFT) and Altered States of Consciousness.

I can help you with:
You are not your anxiety. You are SO much more than that.
Let me show you how to get back in control of your life without the fear, dread and paralysis, so that you can find that aliveness and joy you are longing for.
I could do it, and I know you can as well.
Ketamine-assisted IFS for healing
An increasing amount of evidence supports how psychedelic substances work as catalysers in the healing process.
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.
What if the most "obvious" questions are the ones without an answer:
"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. It's because one or more parts of you are longing for more and calling you onto that journey of growth and discovery.
I'd love to guide you into that journey.
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.
Nobody likes nightmares. They intrude in our life when we are the most vulnerable: in the middle of a supposedly restful night of sleep. They leave us sweaty, anxious, and sometimes paralysed...
and their images and feelings haunt us for days. Some nightmares can linger around for a lifetime.
But nightmares are not just that. They are the only way certain messages can reach us from the depth of our subconscious.
I have adapted the Internal Family Systems model to bring relief from nightmares in an effective way by resolving the root cause.
You can restore your peaceful nights of sleep while at the same time bringing peace into your life.
Ketamine-assisted IFS for creativity & higher thinking
Psychedelics work as a catalyser and allow for increased out-of-the-box thinking, creativity, and higher thinking.
They are linked to an heightened ability to connect concepts, find new paths and solutions, and see things from new - previously invisible - perspectives.
Psychedelics increase the neuroplasticity of the brain, therefore allowing "rigid belief systems" to shift, expand, and widen.
Ketamine can be experienced in a safe and medically supervised setup, while at the same time focusing its effect through professional preparation and integration.
Hello, I'm Valentina
I'm a Change Expert (MA), Certified Internal Family Systems Practitioner, and Certified Life Coach.
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 show others how to embrace 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.
What they say about me...
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.
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.
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!
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!

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 are a seeker. 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 feeling that something is missing...
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.
It took me a decade to realize we ALL possess the resources, awe and wonder it takes 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 destroy it all.
For oh so many reasons. The point is: we can all get there.
If only we are taught how.
If only we allow ourselves the grace to feel into everything we are, right now, and we can be-come.
Is this a life that makes you feel joy, inner peace, freedom, and wholeheartedness?
If the answer is NO, then you are in the right place, because this is what I do.
I'd love to help you get there.
Because you matter.
Because there is nothing wrong with you.
Because you are a unique brew of wonder and stardust.
