Valerie Montgomery is first an artist. She remembers feeling excited when the art
teacher’s cart entered her first grade classroom. It was through journaling during a painful divorce and worldview collapse that her literary artist appeared and supported her through life’s most poignant moments.
Here she has created an educational and emotionally-responsive course supporting your life challenges, changes, and joys. Using the written word you may find depths of your experience yet untapped.
Valerie’s hope is that you allow your emotions to be supported through your writing thereby supporting your heart’s truth. By taking time to record your feelings like never before, you may invite your own healing.
This course benefits from Valerie’s Bachelor of Arts in Social Work, a Master of Arts in
Counseling and Human Services, and being the offspring of two public school teachers.
Valerie lives with her Ragdoll cat Dulce de Leche in Colorado Springs and enjoys her three grown children and five grandchildren. She owns and operates a Counseling practice supporting adult women.
Why You Should Join Valerie?
Emotions and life do not always follow the same course. Sometimes we can benefit from support around our feelings and what we do with them. This course offers a unique method for tapping into your “feeling reality.” Using your own space, time, and supplies, you are invited to explore a deeper understanding and “processing” of your emotions. The goal is not
a product, but may produce a result of your emotional exploration. The relationship you have with yourself is the most important piece of this practice. Think of this course as an experiment. Let’s just see what happens. You may find that you know yourself a bit better from taking this course.
