"It's hard to put Vanessa's work and impact into words. I sought her care after typical Western medicine couldn't pinpoint why my energy and mood were consistently waning. From the first moment we sat down in her space, I knew I was in good hands with Vanessa. During our sessions, I felt consistently supported and guided, not judged, and like a tiny space had been created just for me. She helped me tap into the experiences I was having in my body, and taught me how to use breath and intention to connect with those experiences. It was an extremely transformative process that left me feeling more empowered in my body and mind."

"Vanessa lives her life with so much authenticity and love that it feels very comforting to just be in her presence. She has a way of making everyone around her feel special. I live for our coaching sessions because she always has that perfect piece of advice. I walk away from the session feeling completely heard, understood and never judged. Over and over she has helped me get back on track and thriving at a higher potential."

"The Soul Oriented Living Online Series was exactly what I needed! It really helped me integrate and tune into the unbound energies already available to me. I am definitely able to experience more feeling and accepting and less over thinking."

"I love working with Vanessa. SRI is an incredibly powerful tool for healing, and she wields it with intuition and insight. I often go in with something roiling inside me, that I can't quite identify. After a few minutes of talking about what's going on, Vanessa puts me on the table and takes me through the movements, often weaving the different stages in unexpected procession. I always leave feeling weightless, joyful, released.
She is a true healer with a beautiful heart. I have left all kinds of baggage on her table, and I'm so grateful to have her as a partner in my growth. Thanks Vanessa!"
- Lila Bailey, San Francisco, CA

"It's hard to describe all of the gifts that Vanessa brings to her work and clients, but to put it briefly-- thanks to her, I feel like I have an unconditionally caring, supportive, wise, and creative guiding force in my life that can help me through any scale of life challenge. I have worked with her on challenges that range from finding my voice to processing grief and trauma, and she works in a way that honors both the mind and body experience."
-Catherine Madden, San Francisco, CA
"I worked with Vanessa a few years ago in a time of anxiety and uncertainty in my life. She taught me some SRI and acupressure techniques to help alleviate pain. To this day I still employ these techniques and whenever I use them, I am in awe at how I can use my own body to heal itself. Thank you, Vanessa for guiding me in empowering myself."
-Christiana Moreau, Glendale, AZ
"Vanessa helps me explore, love and integrate all parts of myself. She provides a safe sanctuary to release what is no longer needed, and to draw from the infinite resource of energy available to us at all times. Through our work together, I am reminded that anything is possible, that my body and mind are capable of mystical and spontaneous healing, and that I have all the resources I need right now, to thrive. Vanessa is one of the most authentic, creative, colorful, dynamic, kind, wise, gentle and fierce beings I have encountered, and it is a deep pleasure to regularly work with her."
