Valerie Keating, MA, PsyD
I began my path in psychology and healing
in a traditional way. I obtained my master’s
and doctoral degrees in clinical and health
psychology and have worked as a therapist
in a number of settings including mental
health centers, hospitals, colleges, and
private practice. All of these experiences
led me to develop a solid foundation and
secure understanding of human develop-
ment and interactions.
A pivotal moment in my personal and professional life came when I trained in a rehabilitation hospital with a number of patients who reported phenomena such as leaving their bodies, having near-death experiences, and seeing family members who were deceased. Their accounts spurred my interest in psychospirituality and forever changed my life and life’s work.
My research on near-death experiences and subsequent dissertation on that topic opened the door to studying reincarnation, past-life regression, the after-life (life in between lives), out-of-body experiences, consciousness, and Energy Psychology. All of these subjects have greatly enhanced my understanding of who we are, why we are here, and how to achieve happiness and peace.
As a practitioner, I offer strong clinical training enhanced by psychospiritual and Energy Psychology research and knowledge. As a person, I am extremely supportive, respectful, caring, compassionate, empathic, intuitive, and, above all, gentle. People who work with me tell me they have learned to understand and like themselves more, they’ve become less judgmental, and they have found deep healing and meaning in their lives. I have been honored to help them on their path.
