I'm still new to working with Vanessa but the few sessions we've had so far have given me a lot of hope and challenged me in the most positive way. I look forward to our sessions and highly recommend her to anyone who wants to feel heard and is ready to feel and THINK better about themselves.

Vanessa nd I have had 2 sessions so far and I feel a connection - her follow ups to our discussions (articles, podcasts, apps for assistance) have been right on point. So glad I decided to try your services.
