- Senior Manager – Deloitte Consulting, San Francisco, CA
I was a skeptic entering this process. I knew I wanted change but thought I was already doing the right things… And deep down didn’t believe I had the power to call true change into my life – especially in just hours with an audiotape. The Akoya Power audio sessions were incredibly powerful… Powerful enough to evoke strong emotions, and concrete and clear enough to change my daily routine and make me identify and break down my own barriers to happiness. Three months later… And I have called into my life an amazing man. Whether or not he is ‘the one’, I feel for the first time in a long time that I WILL find someone incredible.
- Paula Lacobara, Skin Health & Beauty Coach, New York, NY
“Wow, this is such a powerful tool! I am so grateful to Vanessa for encouraging me to explore deeper levels of myself through the comprehensive, practical and very powerful exercises in this course. As I finished each audio I got more and more inspired and at the end I was able to create the coaching program that I have been wanting to create for so long and somehow I have been putting it off. I realized that some of my unconscious beliefs were stopping me from sharing my gifts with the world and now I feel totally ready. The “You Can Create An Ideal Life” course is inspiring and every time I listen to it, it raises my vibration making me feel more powerful and capable of really and truly creating the life I desire.” www.paulacobara.com

“The session at the WIM breakfast was great and I loved your energy. I started using the appreciation exercise with my fiance the next day and it has worked so well for us. We found ourselves in this cycle of petty complaining and arguing and the past week has been so great. The exercise has helped us to focus on the good instead of the bad. He actually acknowledged how much he likes doing it this morning and reminded me that we forgot to do the exercise last night. I just wanted to share so that you know that the work you are doing is having an impact.”
- Jen Clarke, Program Manager, large internet company
“I had the pleasure of having Vanessa speak at two events that I organized – one for the large internet company I work for, the other for our Stanford Graduate School of Business 5th year reunion. Vanessa’s talks were incredibly well thought out, with valuable content. As a speaker in a business setting she is effective at addressing the sometimes ‘fuzzy’ area of personal growth while maintaining credibility through her professionalism and by referencing her past experiences. Vanessa is an engaging speaker with a keen ability to tailor her approach to her audience, wherever they may be on their personal and professional journey.”

- Jenny Heller – Chief Investment Officer Private Fund of Funds, New York, NY
“Vanessa inspires me to be the best version of myself—to reach deeper inside and find truth. She makes this process fun—she reminds me that reaching deeply inside myself doesn’t have to be a struggle. Her passion and energy are totally infectious—she was made to do this work. She is a true healer and a warrior, in the best sense of the word.”
- Regina Flores Mir – New York, NY
The PWC retreat changed me. I feel like I was walking around with a blind-fold on and on each day of the retreat it was slowly being removed. After leaving the retreat, I have a greater sense of purpose and of who I am. I wake up everyday filled with an immense feeling of joy and gratitude. I am eternally grateful to Akoya and all the PWC teachers who, through their unique practices , all participated in sending me back out into the world with a renewed love of life!
