Hello there!

I’m Valerie Tookes, a lifestyle and wellness coach, and founder of Her Holistic Health, a health coaching practice devoted to helping women shift how they see and talk to and about themselves and their bodies.

More than anything in the world, I care about women loving themselves and their bodies well and if there’s one thing I’m really, really good at, its supporting women to clear the path back to their the natural and innate connection to self that we were all born with.

Prior to this work, I was an educator, a finance and operations manager, an artist, and a pole dance instructor but I began to look around and notice this recurring problem… women (including myself) saying horrible, shaming, guilt latent things to and about themselves and as I did my own work I was reminded that the body holds all of our answers and if we can slow down and listen, it is the pathway to living and loving ourselves well.

So I became certified through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition®., trained at the Interchange Counseling Institute and hundreds of client hours later here I am.

Today, I have devoted my entire business to serving women who are struggling with creating a positive, loving relationship with their body in order to get what they really, really want which is to change their relationship to their lives, in order to love themselves and those around them well.

Sometimes, my work looks like one on one sessions with women. Other times, its writing blog posts and newsletters or giving local talks sharing my view of a world where women are in love with themselves.

Ultimately, all of my work is about creating a world where women love themselves and their bodies well because the world is way better when women teach, lead and love from a place of strength and devotion to their entire being.

So that’s me. Now that you’ve got the low down on who I am and how I got here, you can check out some of my favorite blog posts over in the sidebar, sign up for my e-letter or simply reach out for the support that you know that you need and absolutely deserve.

In love and good health,

Valerie
