Dark Hearts Healing Arts is a virtual healing space for intense, sensitive, creative, against-the-grain folx who seek deeper self-connection, authentic expression, and grounded spiritual expansion so you can craft a life that fully and freely reflects YOU.

If sustainable Self-Love is a struggle, if Self-Care takes second place (or third, or fourth) in your own life, if you no longer want to stay stuck in behavioral or generational cycles that require you to stay small, silent, or unwillingly compliant, I invite you into this healing work. 

Here, all of You is welcome, valued, and important. Here, compassionate curiosity, somatic safety, and your unique needs are the guiding forces of our sessions. Here, you can finally shed the "should's" of who you adapted to be, so the Authentic You can fully and freely shine through.


The most radical thing you can do is be fully and freely you.

I'm here to help you do that.

Hey there! I'm Vanessa Persephone Wells, your guide to navigating the Unknown and actualizing the life you're longing for.

WTF does that even mean? I'm so glad you asked.

Allow me to explain.

A part of you knows it's time to shed the "shoulds" that have shaped your identity and lived experience throughout your life - how you "should" look, be, feel, act, and choose.

A part of you knows it's time to choose You now, to prioritize your needs and maybe even get to know for the first time what that means.

And a part of you feels scared, hesitant, overwhelmed, and unsafe about all that. So you might feel torn between wanting to grow and initiate change, and finding comfort in the familiarity of how things are or have been, even if they've been really rough. 

Together, we're going to embark on a journey, whether that's over the course of one hour, one month, or one year. This journey will lead you into healing harmony with your Self - not through forcing, or fixing, or secret-sauce formulas, but by using compassionate curiosity, intuitive inquiry, conscious choice, and authentic action.


Depending on the offering you choose, your session(s) will incorporate Oracle Cards, Astrology, Shadow Work, nervous system regulation techniques, integrative coaching, energy healing, and/or self-care practices that support you in:

  • clarifying and fulfilling your needs,

  • recognizing and prioritizing your inherent value,

  • establishing and enforcing empowering boundaries,

  • connecting and committing to your truth,

  • acknowledging, aligning with, and acting through your authenticity.

You really can live a life that's filled with both excitement and ease.

You really can do things your way and succeed.

You really can be the multi-faceted, uncensored expression of yourself and be loved, accepted, respected, and valued.

Experience for yourself what's genuinely possible for you through this work. Below are a few ways you can do that...
