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 development 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.
