Hi there! I'm Teresa-- a psychologist turned Wellness coach-- advocating tuning into our bodies for whole person Wellness.
I worked hard to get through school while working full time. It was a challenge but I always kept in sight the reason I went to school, to make people's lives better. I really wanted to help people navigate through their traumatic life experiences. I felt that I had achieved all that I wanted to. Until one day, I woke up and realized it wasn't really working.
I was burnt out. I felt let down and angry with the health care system, insurance company restrictions and structure around how I provided care to clients. I longed for a career that gave me the professional fulfillment I had craved as well as the personal freedom to do the work the way that would benefit my clients the most.
So how do you walk away from a private practice you built from the ground up? Do you let go of your dreams of helping others? Do you just throw away the doctorate degree that you struggled to achieve and that took up 10 years of your life? The answer is No. You use what you know and you create something better.
In the years since I had graduated with my doctorate, I had learned whatever I could about business, marketing and being a solo entrepreneur. I put myself out there and I created a successful business and clinic that helped treat the whole person-- Body and Mind. The pandemic changed a lot of how we did the work we did. With all the restrictions, the other practitioners within the clinic closed their doors. I scrambled to adjust to the changes that were being asked of me. I continued to provide one-on-one care with the limitations imposed on me.
I decided that now is the time to take all of that knowledge and hard work and put it into a new business--- Wellness coaching.
My mission has always been to help each person live their best life. To understand their strengths and to redefine their weaknesses. I believe that we just need to slow down, look inside, discover our truths, and begin to live them.
I'm glad you are here on your journey with me. I promise to share all the information, insight and techniques I have to assist you in living fully and completely as a whole person.
Here’s to living your best life----
