Hi! I’m Vanessa and I am here to assist you in embodying your highest and deepest knowing.
At the heart of it, most people want to feel completely fulfilled in their lives, truly understanding, WHO they are, WHY they are here, WHAT their purpose is, and to EMBODY self LOVE their POWER and the ability to CREATE their lives as they desire.
This trickles down to outer specifics like you want:
Less or no pain, having uplifting relationships, finding meaningful work, feeling more fluid, empowered and safe in your body, taking leaps that are true to your heart, creating a family, setting boundaries, standing up for yourself, aligning with what you want and taking action, understanding your empathic patterns and lightworker purpose, developing your intuition and the list goes on….
We get to the outer by going IN. In essence, the answer to all questions is always the same. Go WITHIN and you will know what to do outwardly.
Imagine a world where each person went IN first?!
What if you totally trusted YOU? Your inner knowing, your presence, your ability to create what you want. To navigate this world from your empowered vantage point and carry out your unique purpose and mission in this life.
I work with Spiritually minded souls, seekers of truth, lightworkers and empaths who are ready to step into a new paradigm of who they are by owning WHO they are.
As a Spiritual Mentor, Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified Marconic Energy Practitioner, Yoga instructor, spirituality and meditation teacher and dancer, my approach is a full spectrum integrated, mind-body-emotions-energy-consciousness approach to every person I work with. I pull from my education and experience with the human body, movement, spirituality, emotional healing work and of course my fully embodiment of who I am in service to who you are.
When you work with me, I am deeply committed to supporting, holding space and assisting you on your journey. I will encourage you to go into places inside yourself you might not have discovered yet and I will meet you where you are at with love and understanding for this incredible human journey that is full of ups and downs. I will nudge you to feel, think and embody YOU at a higher level. When that happens, the possibilities are limitless.
A little bit about me.
I am intensely interested in how us humans intimately experience our inner world and outer lives on a moment to moment basis.
I don’t like small talk. Like most lightworkers and empaths, I look deep into your energy, and into your soul. I can’t help it. I have an insatiable desire to know what makes you tick. I love seeing people standing in their power owning who they are and living from that place.
My husband and I have a 4-year-old who is a vibrant little person that we adore. I have been a Massage Therapist since 2006 working with people 1-1 through bodywork, Marconics energy session and mentoring along with teaching classes and courses. I have also been teaching yoga for over 15 years, dancing and performing for a long time and just love movement and discovering my body every day in a different way.
I love nature, bare feet on the earth, sun on my skin and in colder months, deep breaths of crisp air. I love connecting deeply and having heartfelt conversations with the beautiful souls in my life and the new ones I meet (like you). I also treasure my alone time.
I love sharing through writing and teaching. I relish in the simple things like picnic lunches that ground me here as I experience my own expansion, ascension and the profound work I do with people. I’m born and raised on Long Island, NY and I say coffee like “Cawfe”.
The longer version, a thread of my journey….
“I grew up around people seeking spiritual enlightenment.”
I have had the interesting experience of growing up around people deeply seeking spiritual understanding and enlightenment. My parents started practicing yoga and meditation as students of a female Guru before I was born. It certainly was a different experience from many others my age. I got asked the question “are you Catholic or Jewish” when I was young, and I would have to shyly say that I was brought up with yoga which isn’t a religion, but a way of life. Most would look at me like I had 3 heads. Yoga was not cool then over here on the East coast of the USA in the 80’s and 90’s. Now when people ask when I started practicing yoga I usually say jokingly “in the womb.”
“At 19, I started my “serious” spiritual practice.”
I am grateful for my upbringing and appreciative of my loving and supportive parents who I am very close with and for their dedication to their own spirituality. I had taken many yoga classes and been involved with our yoga community during my early years, but at 19 I started what I call my “adult” journey out of feeling anxiety my first year in college. It was different that time around, and I was more interested and committed to yoga practice with daily meditation, yoga, and philosophy study.
“I was seeking a deeper understanding of WHO I was, WHY I was here, and WHAT life was about.”
During that time, I became interested in energy, and the human body, so I decided to go to school for Massage Therapy. I wanted to know more about “what the eye couldn’t see.” Honestly working with people 1-1 was a secondary reason to my intense desire to know more about who I was, why I was here, and what this life was all about. Of course, I came to realize that working with people was very much part of my mission here which I love.
“Myofascial Release brought it all home for me.”
In my last trimester of school, I learned about Myofascial Release, and I signed up for my first few seminars right away. John Barnes, founder of MFR spoke my language. I learned that my emotions were ok, and got to know the mind, body, emotions, energy, consciousness connection. He was the first person talking about all of it. Not just the body, or the energy, but all of it. I was hooked and kept taking courses, treating clients, and eventually instructing at his seminars for a period of time. I got into law of attraction too and started to really integrate all my knowledge and years of yoga, healing, and spirituality together with my work with clients and for myself.
“At some point, I realized I really DID have all my own answers.”
There was a point where I stopped seeking outwardly so much and knew that the answers to my questions came from within. Yes, I have had invaluable teachers and lessons, but when I started to realize that it was still my job to feel inside if the information I was receiving was right and resonant for me, it changed everything.
This knowing of going inward for guidance, and clarity, is a never-ending deepening and expanding journey. Whenever we think we know it all, there is so much more.
“Self Care became a necessity for my survival, to thrive in what I was doing and in supporting who I am in the world.”
In 2011 I went through a major shift from Burnout Queen to someone who put self-care first. I would cycle through burnout after burnout until one day I had a major insight that how I was functioning was REALLY not working for me. So, I started to approach many aspects of my life from a place of nurturing and caring for myself. I also made really practical decisions like setting boundaries, created days off in my schedule, found easy ways to incorporate supportive practices in my life regularly from yoga and meditation to fun and creativity. The space in my being that I created from this shift to self-care allowed for my intuition to expand and grow quickly.
“Motherhood. Whoa… ”
I became a mama in 2014 and that brought so much transformation. There were some dark nights of the soul stepping into the new and massive role as a Mama and I gained a tiny teacher who I am in awe of every day.
“Having a tiny human who feels like a part of you, made the Empathic stuff even more apparent.”
I got schooled on who I was as an Empath when I became a mother. I started to see my patterns so clearly and my spiritual hygiene became an absolute necessity. I found a way to take care of myself energetically as a Mom. I realized that I had to take care of myself first and foremost and that would allow me to lead by example, and be more present with my daughter. I didn’t have to choose taking care of her, or me, I could have both!
“Marconics. A graduation to the next level.”
I learned about Marconics in 2016 and took classes in 2017. The experience with Marconics has been an accelerated catapulting forward of my evolution. I have learned so much about ascension and my purpose here as a lightworker since and continue to do so. I feel thankful that I am involved in such a new energy that has only been available to humans since 2012. It is a very exciting time for us all!
Like everyone, my journey is complex and can’t fully be described in an “about” page. This is one thread of my journey but an important one to share. WHY? So you can understand where I am coming from and KNOW I get you, REALLY get you, dear lightworker, empath, spiritual seeker on a core level.
