About Me

Hi, I’m Vanessa a.k.a The Grateful V, and it would be my honour to be your guide on this healing journey. I like to call myself an accidental expert on chronic illness because I lived it for a decade of my life. I was diagnosed with multiple chronic illnesses including POTS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Migraine, Vestibular Disorders, Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Depression, PTSD, IBS, the list goes on. After trying everything, and spending everything, to get better, I was left with debilitating illnesses and limitations. I never thought I would live again, laugh again, work again or be the mom and wife my family needed. Just when I thought all hope was lost, I found my faith and it pointed me into the direction of neuroplasticity. This is where I learned to harness the power of my God Given mind to change my brain and heal my body. And now that I am on the other side of all of this, I want to help others heal and get their lives back, just like I did. I know what it’s like to feel discouraged and hopeless, but I want you to know that there is hope and it starts with you.



Neuroplasticity Focused Coaching


Discovery Call

Let's chat! This is an opportunity for me to hear a little bit about your journey and what your healing goals are. During this informal chat, I can answer any questions you have and we can discuss how I can support you in your healing through coaching.

Neuroplasticity Focused Coaching

For those on the Neuroplasticity journey, I will provide guidance and support on various popular neuroplasticity programs. I will help you perfect your current practice, keep you focused and get you motivated.  I will also teach you many of the skills I have learned and arm you with the tools to help you feel empowered in your healing journey.  My intention is to ignite that hope within you and to keep you committed to your healing using a soft and graceful approach. I will be a constant source of encouragement and support during the highs and lows of this healing journey. Let's work together to find you that peace you've been searching for.



Interested in Neuroplasticity but not sure if it’s for you or overwhelmed as to where to start? I can answer your questions, help you find which option is best for you and guide you in the right direction.

Vanessa is exactly who I’ve been looking for! I’ve known about brain retraining/limbic system impairment for a couple of years- (diagnosed MCAS/CFS/fibro/IBS/PTSD) tried a couple of different programs, courses and coaches. I dealt with chronic health issues for over 5 years, I researched every type of healing modality under the sun and tried probably 95% of them. I needed someone who could collaborate with me on the issues I personally deal with and help me lay the groundwork for healing with a solid PLAN. She gives me homework and structure which has helped me more than anything else along this healing path. I cannot understate the impact her help has had on my healing. I am adding in foods after being down to less than 10 foods for well over a year! I am having healthy conversations with people in my life I haven’t been able to talk to in years! She gives me support where needed, tools, guidance, structure, accountability and genuine hope. I cannot recommend her enough!


“I’m about 90% recovered from my chronic illnesses! I couldn’t be more thankful to find such a wonderful community of people like you Vanessa, that provided me with the tools and support to help me heal. Thank you for your guidance. Especially on those difficult days where I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. It was always there waiting for me, I just didn’t know how to find it. You have a beautiful soul and I'm sure God put you here for the purpose of helping and serving others. So again, thank you for everything you did for me ❤️”


Before working with Vanessa I was at my wits end emotionally, physically, and mentally. I had been struggling with a wide range of symptoms for 7 years. I was misdiagnosed by many doctors, and given several diagnoses and different treatment protocols, all of them ending in failure and not feeling any better and sometimes feeling much worse. At my worst I couldn’t get out of bed, couldn’t drive, shower, cook, or take care of my family let alone myself. It was the scariest time in my life and I didn’t think I was ever going to get better.  I finally decided to start DNRS and had been doing it for almost 8 months, but still didn’t quite feel like it was helping, something just still felt off. I couldn’t understand why nothing I ever did or tried made me feel any better. My main symptoms are chronic pain and severe anxiety. I came across Vanessa on Instagram and was instantly drawn to her…the calm nature of her voice, her positivity, the content she was discussing, and most of all how she healed herself. 


I have been working with Vanessa now since April and I can tell you this is the most progress I’ve made in my 7 year healing journey, for once everything feels right and makes sense. She has guided me with healing my trauma, turning my limiting beliefs to positive ones, she has shared resources with me that have all aided in my healing thus far. 


I know it was God who led me to Vanessa for a reason, she has helped me draw closer to my spirituality that has strengthened my faith and trust in Jesus. The last 4 months of working with Vanessa have been nothing short of miraculous. I  know that she is always there to help me push through hard times. I am so blessed and thankful to be able to work with her and happy to have her as my coach! 



It would be my honor to guide you in your healing.
