Power in Transparency

Coach Val bravely shares how she stays fierce in her life and has learned to take proactive measures to influence her mental health. Relatable, insightful and practical.

Thanks

I just listened to the first episode and I appreciated Val’s vulnerability in telling her story. It’s very encouraging to hear that one can reach rock bottom and cone out alive and stronger on the other side. I look forward to more episodes.
