I hold space for you to step out of the busyness of life's demands and expectations to catch your breath, to process who you are and what you want. I create a safe space in which you and I can both be real.
I tell you the truth.
I view you as naturally creative, resourceful, and whole, and capable of making the best choice. You already have the answers--you're like a room full of clues; I guard the perimeter so you can explore your "lightbulb moments" of discovery and insight.
I hold space for you to explore the direction and speed and method you want to take to move toward your desired results. I hold you accountable for making the changes you want to make. I view success and failure as feedback as we experiment to create systems that align your actions with your values.
I celebrate every win.
Hi! I'm Teresa. I'm a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coaching Federation (ICF), with additional certifications in wellness life coaching and academic life coaching, a Masters in Teaching, and a background in nontraditional education.
I have logged over 2,700 hours coaching more than 160 busy people (ranging from high-school students to undergraduate students to professionals) to exceed their aspirations. I train and assess coaches through ICF-accredited Coach Training EDU.
I recharge by facilitating lightbulb (“Aha!”) moments, connecting with family and friends during invigorating walks, and musing by a campfire.
