Diligent, compassionate, patient and focused. I appreciate how Vanessa challenges me to look beyond myself while taking accountability for what is in my control. I enjoy the imaginative communication styles she encourages using my own virtuosities as my mediums.

From the start, she's made me feel heard and understood, she validates my emotions when others have judged or criticized me for them. I'm very thankful to have been matched with Vanessa, having her help gives me a little more hope.

Vanessa has been what the universe had in mind for me when I finally opened up and decided to get help. She’s re-lit a passionate fire under my a$$ that I forgot was there and I’m a man with and on a mission to better myself. Thank you Vanessa!
