About Health Coach Valerie

zencruise meI am a Dr. Sears Certified health coach, and Certified bodywork and energy therapist. I have 20 years experience in the field of health and wellness. A previous owner of a personal training studio with a juice bar in Soho, NYC, my clients demand for support with food inspired me to develop a program called H.E.A.R.T. "Healthy Eating Always a Real Treat." I was delighted to find my lifestyle wellness coaching matched perfectly with Dr. Sears Wellness Institute teachings, and I completed his schooling.

Growing up in New York City with a foodie mom, I would home from school and watched cooking shows with her on TV, so I owe much of my early foundation for a delicious and healthy lifestyle to my mom. Delicious food and a healthy lifestyle is still a central focus, I teach and support individuals and groups to create a better quality of life through whole food nutrition. I will arm you with information about what to do, AND why it makes sense. Through one on one coaching, classes, or presentations Healthy Eating Always a Real Treat helps you understand what is best for you and your family, let go of concerns with fadish trends, and gives you the key to your body's system to develop a healthy lifestyle for life! Environmentally conscious? With a small carbon footprint tap into aeroponics with me. User friendly sustainable tower garden systems grow healthy, fresh organic produce in your home! Your healthy lifestyle is made even easier from Tower to table.

Invigorate U, is truly a “Mind-Body Development” company. I founded Invigorate U as an umbrella for healing, lifestyle coaching programs and workshops, all of which serve as the catalyst for improving quality of life, be it in mind, body or spirit. Nutrition and what we put into our bodies is a major part of having all of your other parts work. It affects every cell in your body every moment of your life. My logo contains an acronym, A.R.C. in “A.R.C. Angel,” this stands for three pillars of all Invigorate U coaching, they are: Awareness, Response-Ability (our ability to respond consciously), and Choice. My teaching is always designed to facilitate inspiration, empowerment, and re-connection with the greatest healthiest version of you.

I have been working with Valerie for about 2 months now and have lost 10lbs and 4.2 in my BMI.  Recently I had blood taken by my Doctor. My kidney functions never looked so good, which is incredible because I don’t have a bladder, I have a Urostomy Bag. My cholesterol and thyroid are looking great. I have no more joint pain, my tremors stopped completely. I sleep so much better, and have so much energy it's amazing! If I hadn't started this whole food nutrition program I couldn't have cooked for the Jewish Holidays. I want to thank Valerie for all of the support and coaching she has been giving me on nutrition for my new journey of living healthy. I have already learned so much!

Through one-on-one healing sessions, business development and consulting I am an activist for transformation and personal development across many platforms, currently teaching nutrition and co-creating with my fiance at Zen Den Yoga School and Retreat Center in Boca Raton, Florida. We offer local and international Yoga & Wellness Retreats. Using alternative healing modalities with personal development exercises on the massage table and off I have carefully choreographed for each individual, sessions to shift unwanted belief systems, and ultimately behavior, into new beginnings where you can find greater ease and joy on a daily basis. My ‘Be The Blossom’ experiential workshop series facilitates people to bring ease in life's transitions and new levels of mastery in life - walk away with new tools and understanding.

Giving back is important to me. I have been involved with charity and community work for many years. A few highlights include my empowerment workshop teaching children through creativity via the arts and experiential exercises in after-care programs that their voice matters and they are powerful beings. Passionate about our connection with the Earth, I co-created a community green dinner program called The No Toxic Zone, a movement to educate people on how to remove toxins from their bodies, their home and the environment. In All FED: Project to Feed The Hungry & Homeless, I partnered with my rabbi, Rabbi Marc of Temple Adath Or, and Val Silidker of Expand The Love, to feed thousands of homeless and hungry in three counties of South Florida for one week a year every February.
