Working with Vanessa was a deeply profound experience for me. I came to her with some soul searching questions about my life circumstances and a feeling of stress and fight or flight in my body. Through the work, we were able to do some somatic release in my body and uncover a deep root cause of my issues. In the days after our work together, I felt more open and relaxed in my body and clear in my perspective around my circumstances. Vanessa’s presence was safe and loving, which made it easy for me to open up the vulnerable content of my life and feel held by her, without judgement or fear. I am so deeply grateful and highly recommend Vanessa as a practitioner and space holder of healing.

I found Vanessa through a Google search when I was enduring a tough time in life and relationship. Her kind, compassionate and professional demeanor immediately put me at ease and allowed me to be vulnerable and open to Inner Space Therapy even during my very first session. I consider my time spent working with Vanessa to be pivotal to the success I achieved navigating my struggles. The therapy is a great tool, but I believe it was Vanessa's loving intention and dedication that were the most powerful part of my journey toward healing. Thank you Vanessa! ❤

I had been searching for a meditation community for years after college, and when I first met Vanessa I could feel how authentic and sincere she was in her practice and the space she created for others. I attended Vanessa’s weekly meditation group for weeks, and then there came a time in my life where I was so lost in finding my next step. Even after deep thought and writing everything down I knew I needed to get out of my head and connect to my soul, but I didn’t know how. My IST session with Vanessa provided me with the clarity I needed to feel confident in moving forward. She guided (not pushed) and held (not babied) me through a wave of emotions that I didn’t even realize I needed to let go of. I am blessed to have Vanessa in my life, and highly recommend connecting with her to find clarity and guidance in your life.

My IST sessions with Vanessa: She is SOLID…deepness itself. I feel like I am lying in the grass, full of delight and ease. I sink as deep as Vanessa. I begin feeling energy surrounding and lifting my hands and arms…understanding movement from an outside-in perspective. As a physical therapist with a major in biomechanics, I find this revelation compellingly elegant. Vanessa’s present solid foundation of integrity allowed me to lay in the grass and be danced. To sum it up, I will say this process is consciousness researching itself.

Vanessa is a true healer. Her vibrant spirit filled with compassion and genuine love for those she serves shines brightly. Before, during, and after my IST sessions with Vanessa, I felt not only accepted, but fully embraced in a way that gave me the courage to start the healing process my soul was seeking. She masterfully created a peaceful, safe, meditative space that allowed me to reach into a part of myself that needed to be expressed. This is powerful, consciousness-raising work! Vanessa is highly trained and knowledgable with much to offer those who seek depth and healing on their spiritual path.
Let me start with this. The time I spent with Vanessa was wonderful. I always felt at the center of the universe each and every hour I was in a session with her. At times the sessions became difficult but at the same time I could feel Vanessa's guiding hand comforting the experience. It's obvious she is dedicated to what she is doing. So naturally I always felt like she had dedicated herself to me individually.
From early childhood I struggled with my gender identity. I coped with it all my life. Really, not till I started receiving the care from Vanessa did I actually start to appreciate my somewhat unique situation. I have since enjoyed a number of experiences far beyond my wildest dreams that I owe to the guidance and love from Vanessa.
For everyone with similar struggles, I can only say that this path worked for me and that you could not be in better, caring hands.

I have participated in several IST sessions with Vanessa in person and via Skype. Vanessa is a very experienced instructor/facilitator who expertly guides you through the process taking into consideration each individual's unique situation. Evaluating each persons level of awareness, receptiveness,and understanding. Her soothing voice, encouraging and supportive attitude enhances the whole experience. Through her assistance I feel I have been able to open myself and explore many areas enhancing my own level of awareness and growth.

Vanessa made me feel completely welcome and comfortable. She has a very grounded & non-judgemental way about her, allowing me to bring everything I had with me to a session with no stigma. Very professional and knowledgeable, great facilitator. Highly recommend.
~ Renee Theuriet, Massage Therapist
Vanessa is great! She was present with me and our class. My questions, which were many, were never treated a dumb and I felt welcome to ask about Clairvision School meditation techniques without feeling like the kid who asked too many questions. As a beginner meditator, my consistency wasn’t there. Again, I didn’t feel criticized for that, which made it easy to continue to show up for my practice. She was helpful, knowledgeable and available without judgement. She’s great. Just wonderful.
