Coaching Expertise & Experience
Teressa works with individuals, small and large groups who are looking to break through obstacles — real or perceived — that stand between them and their personal life or career goals. In her book “LIES That Limit,” she provides the compelling reason that so many people fail to achieve their dreams. LIES™ — an acronym for Labels, Illusions, Excuses & Stories — have a paralyzing affect that can only be addressed once they are brought out in to the open. That is when breakthroughs happen, when real truths tackle the fears placed in our hearts by well-meaning loved ones and associates. Tearing down limiting LIES is at the heart of Teressa’s personal coaching approach.
Through practices like Gestalt Coaching, Stakeholder-Centered Coaching, Core Energetics and more, Teressa has an extensive array of tools that allow her to customize a solution with the individual in mind.
