“Through my discussions and meditations with Valerie, I went from feeling indecisive and depressed to positive. I learned how to terminate the toxic relationships on my terms without guilt, grieve properly for my mom, and better handle the stress from single parenting.
I connected with a vision for my future and it is now manifesting
in my life!”
“My quiz was dead on….the personal story resonated greatly with me! I can’t wait to learn more! I feel these tools will be very beneficial.”
“I came away feeling that I was meant to take this test. I feel like I have only scratched the surface of what my inner wisdom can tell me. I feel so blessed and grateful for this!”
“The practices Valerie taught shifted something deep in me. I have read things and discussed things, spiritual in nature, but this can keep things too much in the head. For me, doing the practices was a type of surrender and when I did give myself over to them, they were so powerful (I’m teary just in writing this), and created new pathways inward.
This is life-changing in itself.”

“This course has helped to integrate all of the learning and work that I have already done. Too much of my years of therapy were head centered, when I needed them to be much more body centered as I grew up somehow not trusting (nor appreciating) my body. Too much blah, blah, blah. This course helped me even more than the Somatic Experiencing therapy in that I could practice in my own home, in my own time and in my own way!! Thank you a ton, Valerie!”
“My anxiety has been reduced because I have learned to breathe in moments of stress. I am more open to relationships with people and I think I have a broader perspective of the world outside the constraints of my own mind. I have learned to free myself a little bit from these constraints through meditation and inspiring lectures.”
“I’m thankful to this course for expanding my mind.”
“Through meditation and practicing yoga poses, I am finding inner peace. This course has been my lifeline.”
“The window’s been opened and I cannot completely back into old habits. Increasingly I find myself smiling at myself when caught in the old traps (e.g. reacting instead of responding), my previous self-berating tone has turned into a much more compassionate one, and thus releases me into a better day each time old buttons get triggered.”
“I now bring greater awareness to my relationships with others and myself. My husband and I where talking and he was assuming something and didn’t let me explain what I was trying to say. I realized he has gotten used to me over 30 years – on how I used to react and think. I was so annoyed and about to shut him out when I remembered and used the techniques I learned in the course. By doing this I could see the reason why he responded to me in such a way. In the end we talked later and because I remained calm we were able to have a good conversation.”
“This course is a great way to free your mind from whatever has been holding you back. It is a great way to see your life with more peace and serenity. It has made me an overall happier person.”
“There are so many things we don’t know about our true selves and the course gave me a lot of spiritual reminders, ideas, suggestions and lessons.”
“This course has helped me to free myself from the daily struggle/ mindlessness/ emotional entanglements.”
“I highly recommend Dr. Baker’s course. If you want to finally understand how to calm your anxiety, worry and better your relationship with others and especially your true self/soul—take this course!”
“The practices were powerful. I was really able to immerse myself in the meditations and I think my anxiety has been reduced because of that.”
“The practices Valerie taught shifted something deep in me. I have read things and discussed things, spiritual in nature, but this can keep things too much in the head. For me, doing the practices was a type of surrender and when I did give myself over to them, they were so powerful (I’m teary just in writing this), and created new pathways inward. This is life-changing in itself.”
“I was really impacted by the way things were phrased and the powerful message that came through. I had to reread many passages several times, since they felt new each time, or so big that I had barely begun to grasp them. It’s hard to put a finger on it, but the manner in which the material was presented made all the difference from being just another ‘positive thinking & 12 steps’ approach. The audio recordings were also surprisingly powerful – in helping me sink into the experience instead of rush through.”
“This program definitely and unequivocally has helped me to move toward my goal of healing, peace and equanimity.”
“My goal was to find more peace and happiness and to have clarity and understanding of my relationships with others. I believe the course has helped me greatly on the way to my goals!”
“I signed up for this course because everything that you shared, Valerie, in your ‘advertising materials’ resonated in me so strongly that I couldn’t turn down the opportunity! It has truly represented just about everything that I’ve learned over the years about spiritual growth! Buddhism, mindfulness, yoga, the struggle to stay open, to find a deeper source of energy within, etc. EVERYTHING was here! The practices were wonderful in that they gently gave me permission to go to painful places and feel ‘hugged’ by your soothing voice, by the earth and by myself.”

“After years of experiencing lack of vision for my professional and person life, depression due to destructive relationships with my siblings, negativity due to a contentious post-divorce relationship with my former spouse, grief due to the death of the mother and stress with being a single mom, I decided to take steps to regain my life that got lost…
Through my discussions and meditations with Valerie, I went from feeling indecisive and depressed to positive. I learned how to terminate the toxic relationships on my terms without guilt, grieve properly for my mom, and better handle the stress from single parenting. I connected with a vision for my future and it is now manifesting in my life!
All of which would have been difficult to navigate without the help of Valerie Baker.”

“Dr. Valerie Baker has totally changed my life. I was suffering from depression, anxiety, stress, fear and I couldn’t understand why I was feeling that way since I had so much to be thankful for. I have a wonderful supportive husband, 2 beautiful daughters and 2 grandsons and 2 granddaughters, and a comfortable home. I have traveled to 81 countries have a great collection of nice valuable things. I retired at 62 at the height of my career.
But why was I always sad, crying, and at times wondering what is the purpose of my life? My daughter suggested that I seek help. So I did and met 3 therapists who judged me, questioned me, told me that I was just feeling a temporary sadness over my cousin’s passing. Their approach made me uncomfortable. I was glad to finally have found Dr. Baker. I felt her serenity, sincerity, warmth, compassion, and understanding. She listened carefully as she guided me to inner peace and calmness through meditation and yoga.
Dr. Baker taught me how to breath and realize the importance of breathing. She introduced me to meditation. I feel more in touch with myself and I feel happier. I can feel that I am healing.
I am no longer feeling the pain that brought me to Dr. Baker, which caused me to feel shame, fear and rage. I find myself being kinder and compassionate to people. I find myself thinking first before getting upset and judging other people. Through her I realized that having anger in my heart is just upsetting me more. I realized the importance of BREATHING and forgiving and finding peace and calmness in life. The HTY approach has allowed me to confront things that I never faced which is now allowing me to heal.
My family and friends have seen the difference in me. I feel I am a better person. Thank you, Dr. Baker!”

“When my husband decided divorce was the answer for him, I was left to accept his decision and felt anger, resentment, sadness and failure. I embarked on my quest for healing and am very glad I did. At each session I opened up more and learned about myself. As I was guided though a 3 minute breathing exercise, I actually felt relaxed and more clear minded. I practiced this at home, even if only for a minute, and felt calm instead of stressed out. I also found this helpful to relax before going to sleep. I felt a change! This was working for me.
Through guided imagery I became more aware. Again, this was not a time-consuming task… only a few minutes that made a huge impact. I began to feel the weight of the world come off my shoulders. My life situation did not change but I was changing. In a relatively short period of time, my energy level increased so that I wanted to do what needed to be done; including getting a second job, packing up and moving on.
I’m Happy! I plan to continue this journey of healing and transformation by adding yoga into my schedule. I notice a positive shift in my mood and outlook within a short period of and time and I am looking forward to my meaningful and bright future. I have recommended HTY to people and I believe they also see a positive shift. Anyone who is feeling challenged or maybe just getting in their own way can benefit from this. A positive change is possible and there is no need to sit on a couch for years to see and feel results.”

“My boyfriend and I were dating for a little over a year when found ourselves fighting all time. We decided to talk to a professional to help us out and that’s how we found Valerie. We were a little unsure about going to Valerie because we were only dating a short while but Valerie put any doubt we had out the window within the first ten minutes of our fist appointment.
Deciding to go to Valerie was the best thing we ever did. She helped us work out our problems so much that after only 2 months my boyfriend proposed to me! We are now married and our relationship has never been stronger.
Valerie has a way of connecting to her clients and helping them in a way I can’t even explain. For any of you looking for a help Valerie is the one to see. My husband and I cannot thank her enough for all that she has done for us.”
— Erika, 30
“Prior to meeting Valerie I had seen two therapists. I saw growth professionally and gained insight regarding the working of my mind, but could never shake the feelings of anxiety, dissatisfaction and the bouts of depression that had haunted me for as long as I can remember.
With Dr. Baker’s insight of how the mind and body work together and the tools she taught and helped implement into my daily routine, for the first time in my life, I have been able to live without starting from a disadvantage. With Valerie’s guidance I was able to incorporate a meditation practice, which allowed me to see, moment-to-moment, how my past experiences were affecting me, emotionally, in the present. These tools have allowed me to accept circumstances and manage experiences that would have easily overwhelmed me, and lead a life free of needless suffering, to concentrate my energy on the relationships and goals most important to me.
I am grateful for the effort and care Valerie put into our work together and felt as if she were walking beside me on the path to clarity and freedom. I can’t thank her enough and would recommend her services to anyone seeking permanent change.”
