Working with Vanessa completely shifted my mindset and perspective around my job. The pressure and demands are still there, but the way I look at them and work around those pressures has dramatically changed. Now I feel lighter and more free, and I honestly believe anything is possible for me.

Vanessa is amazing - a font of knowledge conveyed with her amazing blend of competence and humor. Her explanations had depth of research and satisfied my scientist’s skepticism. A truly worthwhile and rewarding experience!

I'm a Holistic Health and Life Coach, guiding people to make lasting, supportive changes to their diet and lifestyle, while developing deep self-awareness, confidence and a positive, creative mindset.

I grew up in Seattle, earned a BFA in Apparel Design from RISD, and worked for twelve years as a Fashion Designer in New York City. I still love design, but the demands of 70 hour work weeks and constant world travel pushed me to look for a healthier life. My quest to recover from burnout and create a fulfilling life where health, career, and relationships could all thrive in balance led me to explore natural healing, nutrition, personal development and counseling with the same passion that I have for design.

I combine practical strategy and the latest science-based health and nutrition information with creative problem-solving and an intuitive, heart-centered approach. My specialty is helping clients prioritize self-care and shift their mindset to reduce stress, increase energy and gain the confidence and clarity they need to live a life they love. I believe that our thoughts are our most powerful tool, that self-love and self-awareness are essential, and that we always have choices. I offer community workshops, as well as group programs and individual coaching.
