hello there.

I’m vanessa,
YOUR NEW private practice bestie

I'm a systems-thinking oriented toddler mom, who learned very early on that I wanted to be present for all things I love—  entrepreneurship made that possible for me.

As a therapist with over a decade of experience, I've worn many hats in the wellness world - from coaching to reiki to managing a wellness center. But it was when I became a mom myself that I realized the unique challenges therapist-moms face in balancing their professional aspirations with the demands of motherhood. Now, I'm passionate about guiding therapist-moms like you to achieve a harmonious work-life blend while building the practice of your dreams.
