Vanessa gives recommendations that makes me think of how I see myself. She lets me speak my mind and asks me questions that I never would have thought of. Or questions that I have thought of, but never answered.

Vanessa is a good listener. She shares stories about herself so I know I'm not alone in my journey. She is a great resource to keep me grounded and not feeling too overwhelmed.
