Testimonials

I haven't met anyone who is better than Walker in asking life related questions that I reflect and wake up from ignorance. Through my coaching conversations with her, I have been able to make the right choices and decisions that benefit my personal growth. I was amazed how each question that she threw at me could unveil so many hidden treasures of my life. It is rare that someone can see our problems so quickly and to the point. I think that is Walker’s superpower, maybe just one of many.Walker’s coaching is like a mirror, which helps me to see myself; is like sunshine, which lights up the dark corners of my life; is like snow-shoveling, which cleans up the roads for me so that I will be less likely to fall on my path. Her coaching is the best gift that I gave to myself.- Nickie Xu
Walker has been my Thinking Companion for more than 20 years. As a colleague, confidante, and cheerleader, she has inspired me, pushed me, stopped me, encouraged me as I have journeyed through the ups and downs of marriage, parenting, career, and creativity.What she has to offer is always rich, thoughtful, relevant, and helpful. She can also be provocative and blunt. But I come away from our communications enriched with a different perspective and renewed spirit.Walker is wonderful!- Susan Almazol
My coaching experience with Walker has been a turning point in my life in many different ways. The years of psychotherapy and ruminating the past gave place to a new awareness of present and future discoveries where everything was possible; Walker lead me on a self discovery path, guiding me in identifying my passions, my needs and desires, my blocks and self limiting beliefs and replace them with new found affirmations and empowering realizations for new beginnings. Extremely invested from the very beginning, gentle, non judgmental, clear, sincere, compassionate, generous, open minded, kind, joyous, she lead me to realize how beautiful and infinite the process of searching and finding oneself is, and, communicated to me such an excitement for new adventures. She questioned me and with a spontaneous and kind curiosity made me realize how to interact with myself and become the best friend I always wanted and needed to be and gave me permission to attend to my needs without guilt but great sincerity. She set me up on a path where I could become strong and independent...she understood me as no one had before and made me feel worthy, special, courageous, and talented. To this day, the work we have done together stays as the foundation in my life and still serves me in times of doubt and challenges. -Laurence Martin
My interactions, conversations, and meetings with Walker West have been more directly transformative than with any other coaching or counseling figure that I have worked with. She is a guide, an emotional ally, and a sympathetic shaman. Doing deep inner shadow work is no picnic, and it is so important that during life transformation processes, as we go through incredible change in our lives, to have support that is not impositional, but instead gently unconditional and open-minded.For me, Walker has been an invaluable support to me at the intersection of transformative shamanism, and coming into the sacred feminine principle, while living in the present day world. She is a true Wise Woman, compassionate and deeply practical - self-care is a practice in and of itself, but often we lose it, or never learned it in the first place. When we see our lives in tumult or stagnation, we must go back to that core, for something needs shifting, or mending. Walker has helped me to reprogram my beliefs about what is possible for me to accomplish and be in my life, and shift my energies and focus back to myself, on a primal level and also on an intellectual, conscious level. Her approach is spiritual, integrated, Buddhist, flexible, but simple, and always loving and nonjudgmental.- Cheryl Ruebner
Walker was always there for me when I needed her. She was at my birthdays several times, and performances as well. She often told me to enjoy the moment when things were working, and move on when I felt compromised. Unlike typical Asian mothers who would tell their children to stay in the comfort zone, she encouraged and supported me to follow my own intuition and instinct. She understood what I wanted in my life. She didn’t judge my thinking.All the good healers come into our life at the right time when we need them, not on and off like those therapists on demand who sleep when you talk. Many of them have no real life experiences. They only have intellectual knowledge through education. Walker is living her life honestly and intensely, and changing all the time reinventing her new desired normal. She is my friend.- Mai Ueda
I picked Walker was my life coach in 2007/2008 and worked with her for about 8 months. I was in a very difficult situation in my life, confused about my life situation, especially love and business matters. Walker had the ability to draw a line, bring light into my matters and helped me step by step with different and continuing tasks, techniques to figure out what's best for me. From week to week my situation and issues got clearer to me and I could slowly recognize what the best next step should be. I experienced walkers guidance as a flashlight which brought light into the dark so that I could finally see and clean up where it was needed. She definitely empower me as a human being and woman so that I was able to take my life after in my own hands without "having" to rely anymore on anyone else - but me.- Monika Geeta Harczuk
Walker West is not only a guide but an inspiration. She brings a razor sharp quality of perception and a deep level of absorption to her work. She has a special gift for being able to connect the dots between the seemingly disparate inner narratives of our lives, offering a healing through a sense of wholeness. She sees the vital energy of her subjects and encourages that aspect with a passion that is wonderfully infectious. You leave her company enriched, as if she's turned on a light switch that illuminates the "stuff" you no longer need so that you can shine more brightly as the true, organic, you: the you that is a part of a much greater, much larger story: a you that resonates like a song you know by heart, but haven't sung in years!- Gia Forakis
