"From my very first reading, to my ongoing intuition classes with her, Vanessa has made me feel at ease, comfortable, and more confident in my abilities. Just her presence emits a warmth and loving energy. As many aspects as the Goddess, she is the best friend who you can laugh with, the mom who pushes you to do better, and the Priestess who heals your wounded soul. She is always bursting with creativity and is so multi-talented. I am a better healer, a better empath, and a better lightworker because of her."~Reverend Renny Amoros


“Vanessa has an exceptional gift. I recently had the opportunity to do an intuitive session with her. I found her to be gentle yet no nonsense. She was able to connect with themes that are currently looming large in my life, and provide much needed insight and inspiration. Her ability to articulate hidden depths and make the implicit explicit is truly moving. If you have questions, are seeking guidance, or just want to connect with a force bigger than yourself, you absolutely MUST speak to this modern wise woman. Absolutely amazing.”- Liz Alton, Indie Blue Media


I see I hear I feel I know…
this is how I experience my intuition



  • I believe in the power of our intuition as a direct connection to the Divine.
  • I know that each and every one of us is intuitive.
  • I know that we often ignore and turn away from our inner guidance that
    is trying to show us a better way to live.
  • I also know how to assist others in connecting and developing this birthright

I teach I speak I write I guide I coach
men and women to access intuition,
break through fears and live passionately

Also known as the Urban Priestess, Vanessa guides change-making people to connect to the deep wisdom of their intuition so they can tap into their internal power and create the lives they were born to live.

Once New York’s best kept secret, Vanessa has been doing intuitive sessions since her teens and has read thousands of people throughout the world, from every imaginable sector of life.

She has been called a "full service healer" in that she can connect to the underlying soul causes for challenges through her game-changing strategic intuitive sessions and then support change through transformative hypnotherapy.

Teaching hundreds of clients to awaken and develop their intuitive skills, Vanessa offers group coaching, private coaching and live workshops that inspire, inform & empower through using practical techniques for leading a powerful, spirit-centered life.

Vanessa has co-facilitated the NYC's bilingual SOL Circle since 1999, is the founder of the Urban Priestess Mastery Journey, a faculty member at REVEAL and a Leadership Empowerment facilitator for the Bella Abzug Leadership Institute. She is also a writer for The Examiner Alternative Spirituality section.

From me to you…

I started giving sessions at 16. I wasn't prepared for the impact these readings had with people. Eventually…I lied and said I had lost my abilities. I didn't know how to manage this so I studied, read everything I could find and evolved a spiritual practice that is the foundation I have built my life on. At 19, I wrote a letter to the Universe asking to be a channel for inspiration, communication and healing.


I quickly realized once
you raise your hand
in God's classroom, you're IN.


My life has been the journey of stepping into my intuitive power and then assisting others in healing and learning.

I employ healing modalities to uncover, remember & retrieve the wisdom that is yours. I believe in facilitating direct revelation for myself and others. I am a priestess. I serve as a channel to divine guidance, I remind you of what you have temporarily forgotten or are afraid to acknowledge.


I teach the ways home by living them.
I walk with you until you need no more company.


Yet I keep a place for you at the table so we may a share as co-conspirators of joy and healing.

I am a healer, teacher, facilitator, channel, writer, lover, leader, child…above all, I am a person who LOVES seeing others SHINE…deep, bright, loudly, passionately, quietly in your own soul light, in your own soul purpose-LOVE.



“From the moment I met Vanessa she became my mentor, even if I didn't know it then. After performing together for the V-Day campaign to end violence against women, I started attending her seasonal empowerment circles. Watching Vanessa lead circle, seeing her confidence, intuition and deep passion encouraged me to delve deeper into myself and my own intuitive powers.

In addition to circle, I also looked to Vanessa for occasional readings, which helped bring clarity into my life. Vanessa's friendship and sisterhood brought me to a better understanding of my self, my fears, and my power.

If it wasn't for Vanessa's gift as an empowerment trainer, it would have been difficult for me to ever step into my own power as a woman. I am forever grateful to her for giving and continuing to give so much of herself to empower those around her. Hers is a true vision for bringing balance, love and peace into our shared world. ~Milena T.
