Veronica Clanton-Higgins {Life & Sexuality Coach}

Veronica Clanton-Higgins is an author, adjunct professor, & certified life/sexuality coach. A native of Compton, CA, she is known for her community advocacy, including addressing the disparities in mental health care for black and brown communities. VCH Prosperity Consulting, LLC was created in 2016 to address the social, emotional, and spiritual needs of her community. This was accomplished through educating on the importance of emotional wellness, self-care, and setting appropriate boundaries. Her unique style of Life Coaching is a combination of empowerment, emotional transformation, manifesting intentions, and affirming self. She has made it her life's purpose to improve the lives of others by helping them discover their "happy" using mindfulness-based techniques.

Veronica's work includes a research study in collaboration with California State University, Long Beach, Long Beach Black Infant Health Program, and the March of Dimes which focused on reducing stress in African American women through the use of mindfulness-based cognitive behavior therapy. She has also collaborated with Cedars Sinai, Maternal Mental Health Now, and Black Women for Wellness to create a mindfulness-based curriculum for African American children to assist in increasing emotional awareness. An accomplished author, her works include a thought processing journal, "Ten Steps to Happy", personal development journal "Reflections of Me" and a planner for women in business, "Goal Digger: Planner for the Business Diva."

Veronica believes that our words have power and that we should be mindful of what we speak into the universe. She works with individuals to find their happiness through workshops, one-on-one coaching, support groups, and psycho-education. Her goal is to empower one thousand people to not walk in their hurt, but to reclaim their power and live life on purpose!
