Coaching is a transformational process that empowers individuals to more effectively fulfill their commitments, to work more skillfully with others, and to embody new, generative ways of being.
Our approach to coaching is both cognitive and somatic, guiding you toward a deeper level of self-awareness to help you understand what you want in life and support you to move toward your ideals. We use body-based practices, mindfulness, and Presence-Based Coaching model to identify and work with conditioned patterns that limit performance and create new neural pathways and new possibilities to help you move toward your specific goals. We also incorporate polyvagal theory and Somatic Experiencing to gain increased awareness and understanding of the role of the autonomic nervous system in embodiment and well-being.
Vanessa integrates Internal Family Systems model, as well as principles of Non-Violent Communication and Authentic Relating to develop the ability for clear communication, boundaries and authentic connection. Alex also integrates breath and awareness principles from Zen practice.
The coaching process not only moves you toward your vision, but also cultivates essential life skills related to self-awareness, self-compassion, and standing in your truth.

The SSP has proven results with emotional regulation, behavioral organization, and hearing sensitivity and listening.
