VANESSA DURRANT

Welcome to Kindred Tree Healing Center! I am honored that you are considering us to stand alongside you in your healing journey.  I believe we are all wired for connection, healing, and growth.  I specialize in supporting people across the life span recover from trauma, and other big life transitions. All my clinical services are provided from an integrative and attachment based clinical orientation. Additionally, I specialize in parenthood/motherhood. I absolutely love working with invested parents who are looking to delve further into attachment informed, positive, and conscious parenting. Because above all things I am a healer, I love working with all populations across the lifespan that are yearning for growth and deeper consciousness.  

As our founder and clinical director, I provide oversight and visionary direction to all our clinical programs and direct supervision to all clinical staff.  I love to support therapists in cultivating their strengths, and providing excellent therapy to everyone we serve. My treatment and supervision work is attachment based, and intersectional to all things social justice. I am warm and reflective in my leadership style and infuse an anti-racist framework in all that I do. 

I'm a licensed psychotherapist, reiki master, yoga teacher, public speaker, and owner of Kindred Tree Healing Center. I have extensive training in play therapy, and other expressive therapies like art, music, and sand-tray. I bring forth over a decade of expertise in the areas of attachment, trauma, child development, and parenting.

My style is a mix of modern science and ancient wisdom. I deeply love connecting with others on a profound level and staying up to date on the latest brain-based ways of healing. I am an avid researcher and truly love blending evidence-based western therapies with eastern ancient healing modalities like Ayurveda, Yoga, and Reiki. I also strongly believe in walking my talk, and personally engaging with all the healing work I also provide my patients. I felt the urge to be a healer since I can remember.  By the time I was 3 years old I felt a deep calling to help others and do my part to make the world a better place.  I've dedicated my whole life to developing myself as a person capable of this. ​
