Hi, i'm vanessa
I wear multiple hats as a seasoned therapist, coach, and mentor with almost two decades of experience in the wellness and mental health field. My journey has led me to embrace various facets of holistic well-being, including therapy, coaching, reiki, and managing a thriving wellness center. And one thing has remained constant: my passion for helping women improve their health and wellbeing.
However, it was the transformative experience of becoming a mother that truly shaped my perspective and furthered my mission.
Becoming a mother— known as Matrescence, changed the course of my womanhood journey, and it has shaped the work I do with the mothers I serve. I now have a deeper understanding of the unique challenges and triumphs of motherhood, and I am even more committed to helping mothers heal, grow, thrive, and create lives they love.
I believe that motherhood is a sacred journey, and I am honored to support mothers on their paths.
FINDING personal INSpo FROM:
slow mornings, time by the beach, intentional body movement, podcasts, hgtv, and really great triumphant stories
I bet you also want to know how qualified I am to partner with you on your journey
I take a holistic approach to therapy, meaning that I consider all aspects of your life, including your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. I partner with you to create a personalized plan that meets your unique needs and goals.
My approach is approachable and validating, yet also direct. I want you to feel comfortable and supported, but I will also challenge you to grow and change. I believe that you have the power to heal and thrive, and I am here to help you on your journey.
I do not pathologize you or your experiences. Instead, I educate and empower mothers to make choices that are right for them and to live in alignment with their values. I believe that motherhood is an opportunity to grow and deepen into your truest self.
I help mothers bust myths about motherhood and challenge beliefs that are not their own. I also provide tangible and actionable tools and strategies to support mothers in lasting change.
