Vanessa’s Message to You…
Since I can remember, I have been deeply curious about human nature and spiritual understanding, seeking to answer questions like: Who are we? Why do we do the things we do? What is life all about? How can we lead lives of grace, personal power and joy?
As a teenager, this led to existential ponderings. As an adult, it has led to honing my craft. I have always been a student of life – fascinated with academic education, training with remarkable mentors, and absorbing the teachings of personal experience. I have explored many worlds, including psychology, religion/spirituality, biology/neuroscience, human sexuality, art/writing, mythology, and more. I use my intuition and my zest for life to guide me to the tools and experiences I need, and I have synthesized and integrated my training to create a unique learning and healing experience for my clients.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I support you in being yourself. You have a place and a purpose in this world and you deserve to know and express it. My work is a journey of deep acceptance and self-love, of celebrating each person’s unique rainbow of colors, and of healing the wounds that keep us from shining our light in the world.
My desire is that you will enjoy the freedom to be bold, tender, unique, creative… to be powerfully, authentically you.
