My interest in wellness and healing began with my own healing journey which revealed that true healing is multi-faceted.  It occurs on three main levels: structurally, physiologically and mentally/spiritually.  

The source of wellness lies in our thoughts.  If you change the way you think, you will change what you do.  And if you change your actions, you change your circumstances.


As a therapist it is my goal to achieve your highest good.  That sounds highy idealistic, so, what does it mean in plain English?  

The best analogy can be found in sports.  Imagine you play on a team.  Your team is down to the last few moments of the game.  You need a goal, a home run, a fast finish, etc to win.  Well, I am the player you want to have on your team because I want to get winning results for you.  I want to have the ball, hit the home run and race the last lap because I know that I genuinely want to achieve your highest good.  I want you to win.  I want you to achieve health, wellness and abundance in life.


When you come to me, in essence you hire me as your private investigator.  It is my goal to reveal every aspect that is limiting your full expression of health and vitality … whether it is nutritional imablance, structural imbalance or unresolved emotions, I will work with you to bring your highest vision of health, happiness and vitality to fruition.  I can envision this for you and as we all know, vision is the seed of manifestation.  If you want to create a reality, you must first envision it.

I welcome questions and look forward to working with you.  May your healing be every bit as rewarding as mine has been.

Namaste, Vanessa
