Vanessa Allard

With 14 years of experience and extensive training in the fields of bodywork, somatic therapy, and coaching, Vanessa brings a unique combination of expertise that allows her to offer an integrative approach to health and wellness to the individuals and groups she works with. Vanessa grew up in a family of alternative health-care practitioners, and has been immersed in movement and somatics from a young age. She has dedicated her life to studying healing modalities and to her own deep personal work, which supports her in helping others learn more about who they are and their own innate capacities.

As a body-centered therapist and coach, Vanessa works holistically, intuitively, and relationally to help you access your innate ability to heal. Her style is interactive, and characterized by warmth, patience, and compassion. Vanessa uses an integrative approach and draws on a variety of modalities to support you. Whether you are coming in to work with a particular goal or modality, or are unsure of what it is you want or need, together she will help you to create a comprehensive plan to support you in reaching your goals for change.

Vanessa works both individually and with small groups online supporting self-awareness, empowerment, healing, and growth. If you would like any additional information, or if you would like to see if Vanessa is the right fit for you, please set up a free Introductory Consult.
