About Akoya

My Story…How to Find Work You LOVE

It is about uniting the opposing forces inside of you and learning to love and accept both your dark and your light so that you can step into your most Authentic Self: a human being filled with love, power, compassion and joy.

Are you ready to step into your power   


  • “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.”

  • “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.”
