"Vanessa helped me rewire my relationship to discomfort so that it didn't hold the same power over me. So now I do uncomfortable things all the time, especially in bringing in new business to life. It's extremely vulnerable. Very ripe for fear to come in, but my relationship with discomfort is different now that it doesn't hold the same power over me. It feels very easy. So I'm outside of my comfort zone. Moving forward doing bold things, but in a way that feels very safe for me."

"I think Vanessa was definitely the reason that I wanted to continue with the coaching program and I think part of it is that I have absolute faith, that she believes In me. She's going to do whatever it takes to help me clarify what my thoughts are and what is confusing to me at any given moment. I have absolute faith in her ability to just untangle what those thoughts happen to be at any given moment. I think so much of the belief that she teaches me is actually a belief in all people. All people have this capacity to fight for other people. All people have the capacity to learn about themselves and to sit with themselves and love themselves, and celebrate themselves. And to me, she's not only teaching me to believe in myself by believing in me, but she's also teaching me that the more that I believe in myself. The more that I'll have faith in every person that I meet."
"I think the biggest thing that I learned is that being the person that I want to be is actually fairly effortless. . . I don't need a checklist. I don't have to check all of things off or grade myself or decide where I'm going to put my effort necessarily to do all of the things that I want to be able to do. Now instead of making these huge amounts of effort and lists, I just wake up in the morning and I do what feels natural. I accomplish so much more in my day, without even trying."

"I felt so out of alignment with myself yet received immediate love and kindness through the initial consultation which to me just was enough encouragement to feel good about ASKING FOR HELP. Beyond the initial huge progress I felt, I now just love learning and noticing the steady progression of our regular sessions. Vanessa's work is kind, highly intelligent and universal, yet comes from a strong willed place of empowering you while also holding you accountable for your shit."

"We all need that person who can help us learn more about ourselves. Vanessa is someone I can be completely open and vulnerable with. There are not many people that can offer their time and guidance which is priceless. The value I gain in every session is priceless."
Music Coach, Saxophonist, Pianist + Music Instructor
"I was feeling overwhelmed, constantly stressed and beating myself up before I started. Learning to slow down, notice my thoughts and understanding I have the choice to lean into the thought or let it pass by has been invaluable. I have more self-compassion and feel lighter and happier. I'm able to break my goal into smaller daily tasks and process the difficulties versus turning to numbing behaviours."
Fitness, Lifestyle and Nutrition Coach
"The most significant change thus far has been how I see myself. I was lacking confidence in areas of my life that I thought were a big problem. The more I recognize and meet myself where I am the more quickly I shift into where I want to go."
Video and Television Producer
"It's a recognition of your identity of who you are where you in this time and place right now. Understanding my own fear and anxiety, relationships with family and work is invaluable. The fear is gone. I feel more empowered about my responsibilities as a mom, sister and entrepreneur."
