Certified Enneagram Coach: Type 2

More about Vanessa Pham

I decided to become an enneagram life coach because of how the enneagram has helped me in tremendous ways. I believe in the transformative power of the enneagram, so I love to share it with others. My passion and enthusiasm for the enneagram shows! It’s so rewarding to help my clients with their personal goals and walk them through the process of self-awareness and transformation. I truly enjoy coaching others and know this is what I’m meant to do.

Although I’m quite optimistic (I’m a 2, after all), I’ve dealt with more than my fair share of personal losses of loved ones, grief, major changes, doubts, struggles, and depression in my life, from a young age. Because of these experiences, and perhaps because I’m a 2, I’m compassionate, understanding, and insightful and will meet you where you are.

I’m a native Texan, but I make my home in South Carolina with my husband of 18 years and our two beautiful children. My career background includes teaching elementary and high school students. I’ve also worked over the years as a news reporter and writer. Currently, my “other” job besides coaching is online contract work, doing search engine optimization (SEO) for websites. This job, which I’ve been doing since 2020, provides me with the flexibility to work my own hours. This in turn allows me flexibility in scheduling coaching sessions at times that are convenient for clients.

Outside of work, coaching, and continuously studying about the enneagram, I enjoy traveling, adventures, going to the beach and mountains, reading, writing, and spending time with my children.

My goal as your coach will be to help you to discover, become aware of, and accept your true self with grace and compassion so that you can grow into your best self and who God created you to be. I go above and beyond in helping my clients with continuous support, extra resources, and personal service.

Thank you for considering me as your life coach and best in your enneagram journey! – Vanessa (2w3)

“Knowing your type can help you understand yourself better and also understand why you interact with others the way you do. . .very informative! My typing interview and follow up sessions with Vanessa even helped me understand my anxiety issues better. . .and why certain things “get under my skin” when they don’t seem to bother other folks.”
– Mandy, type 2

“I’m a happy client! Understanding my type has helped me tremendously in many ways.” – Laura, type 5
