How long have you been doing what you do and how did you get to be a Healing Guide?
To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment and resulting “compelling story” that brought me to where I am today, coaching people like you on exactly what to do to tap into their power to heal.
That defining moment in my life happened in 1996. At that point in my life, I was chronically ill and on disability and, despite having access to some of the best medical professionals in the country, I wasn't getting better. I was suffering not only physically but emotionally as well. I felt a complete loss of control over my health and my life. I was experiencing a complete “disconnect” from life, from the world, and from myself. I didn't recognize who had I become.
One night, I woke up in a pool of sweat. All I kept saying to myself was, “How did I get here? Why can’t I get better? Is this how I will live for the rest of my life? And what happens when my savings runs out? What will become of me?” But I knew two things about myself; first, when I make up my mind to do something, nothing can stop me. And second, I’m an intelligent, resourceful individual. There was too much life ahead of me and too much I wanted to do to continue to live this way.
At that very moment, I made a commitment to immerse myself in absolutely everything that had to do with getting well and empowering my healing. I read every book I could get my hands on about alternative therapies, nutrition, the power of the mind and emotional intelligence. Essentially I decided to become a mini-expert on how to get well.
Lo and behold within a few months I was seeing results! I was getting better. With constant and sometimes exhausting work and effort, I was able to inform my doctors that I felt ready and able to go back to work. I was stronger, healthier, and ready to take life on again, to live again!
During this process, I had an epiphany! The thing that I wanted to do most was to share what I had learned with others, to teach, to give back. I wanted to write a book about everything I had learned on that long journey. But I didn't know how to do any of that. I didn't know where to start. My background was in accounting and technology and I had a strong resume. This, I thought, is what you do best. This is what you know. So I returned to a career in technology which satisfied me for many years.
But once again, I realized that something was missing. I was not fulfilled. After some deep soul-searching, I realized it was time to make my dream come true. Technology is great and fun, but I had other talents and skills; “gifts” that people needed. I would meet people who were struggling with their health or their personal empowerment and I would think to myself, “I can help you. I know exactly what you need.”
I made a new commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping others get well, and to make empowering changes that would allow them to live the life of their dreams. I do this through my workshops and products, my private and group coaching. And my first book is now published. I am living my true purpose.
Who are your clients exactly?
I work with people just like you who have a burning desire to improve their health, to recover; people suffering with their health to the point that it has negatively affected their life. People who feel they have exhausted all other options and have “had enough.”
What happens if you haven’t yet worked with someone who shares my challenge(s)?
I have worked with a wide range of clients. Most likely I have worked with someone just like you. Although I have to share with you that if I haven’t, you are not at a disadvantage, quite to the contrary. Here’s why: the key to removing the blocks that are holding you back with your health or any of life’s situations are the same. Healing is a process – it can be learned. What my current and former clients have found exceedingly helpful is that I bring an extremely fresh perspective by helping them “implement practices" that work. Because of this, they are able to stand out... no, “step into” a whole new life!
How are you different from other health and wellness life coaches?
Although many coaches will touch upon the same basic concepts, I have taken the best from all that I have learned and compacted it into my coaching process and programs to “fast-track” my clients into getting results. And unlike some coaches, I have walked in your shoes. I have first-hand experience with chronic illness and recovery. Additionally I have taken the time to become educated and certified in professional life coaching and numerous healing modalities. All of that, combined with many years of experience in adult training make me an excellent communicator. What that means to you is that I am very focused on anything and everything that works, anything that gets results, and I know how to communicate that knowledge. Because my client focus is very narrow, what you get with me is no-nonsense, undiluted expertise on what works. I've simply made it my business to become an expert and that’s why my clients get great results.
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
My workshops, products, and programs were created for people who are seriously committed to getting results and ending what I call “the 3:00 a.m. sweats,” meaning, not waking up in the middle of the night anymore saying, “What am I missing? What is it that I don’t see? How can I end this despair?”
Everything in my practice was created for you to put in place within a few months (sometimes weeks!), which will eventually lead you to where you want to be, – not one, two, or many more years, which is a conservative estimate on the traditional time. But it does depend on the illness or issue being treated and the client's willingness to do the work required. Consider what you’ll do with me to be an action learning course. You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. You'll learn a different way of thinking. You'll take back control. And you'll be fully supported while you achieve your personal goals.
For what type of person are your programs NOT going to work?
I’m very selective in whom I work and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (kindly and gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs and who won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. It wouldn't be fair to them.
My programs are not for those who are unable to make a full commitment to improving their lives or for those who cannot make the necessary financial commitment. It has been my experience that a solid financial commitment keeps participants “on track,” fully engaged, and dedicated to the programs.
If you fall within either of these categories, it’s absolutely okay. We’ve all been there at one point or another in our lives. But you can still work with me by doing the following:
- Sign up for the free information delivered by email by entering your name and email address in the box on the right of this screen. The free information I offer will get you started towards your goals until you’re ready to work with me one-on-one.
- Make a point to listen to the free teleclass seminars and workshops when they become available. These seminars and workshops will give you a lot of great information.
Doing these things will help you get primed for our work. When you’re ready, contact me and we’ll get you started.
What exactly are your systems and what do they include?
In my private coaching sessions, I begin by assessing exactly where you are and what your biggest challenges are. Then I custom tailor a program specifically for you. Naturally, group programs are designed to cater to a diverse group of individuals and address the most common issues. But all my programs cover the following items in part or in whole:
- Personal assessment:
Each client is provided with tools to assess where they currently are, what their biggest challenges are and their goals.
- Strategize your unique positioning:
Every individual is unique. Your personal situations and issues are unique. Together we determine what motivates you, what your specific and immediate needs are and how to plug the leaks in your “energy bucket.” Essentially, we clear the decks for what’s most important.
- Tap into your Inner Knowing:
I believe with my whole heart that each of us possesses all the answers we need. I don’t have your answers but you do! My job is to help you access your own “Inner Knowing”.
- Explore alternative therapies and methods:
Whether you’ve been recently diagnosed with a serious condition, been suffering from a minor condition or have become fully disabled we will explore alternative methods that can help reduce or completely relieve your symptoms. Imagine your life with a 30, 50, 80, or a 100 percent improvement. What would that mean to you?
- Breakthrough resistance:
If you are not living your best life now, there is most likely some sort of resistance. My programs will help you discover and break through what’s holding you back.
- Effectively deal with those around you:
There may be people in your life who are holding you back from being the very best you can be. You know who these people are. You'll learn to effectively deal with them while championing yourself as you grow into your full self.
- Coping with setbacks:
Sometimes we suffer setbacks along the way. I’ll teach you how to deal with these setbacks and keep you moving forward!
- Speaking to your higher power:
Whether you call your higher power God, Jesus, the Universe, Source or something else, (it doesn’t matter the term) there’s a right and a wrong way of asking for blessings. I will teach you how to ask and how to open yourself to be ready to receive.
- Become the Master of Your Life:
- True mastery lies within and is the most necessary component for a happy, fulfilled life. Together we will explore and discover the parts of your life that lack control. We’ll discover what’s holding you back and break through the resistance freeing you up for true success and happiness!
- Show up in a BIG way:
While working with me you will learn to step out of your comfort zone, release your fears and open yourself to true empowerment. Change is not easy for most and can be very scary but without change you remain the same. If you are ready to make BIG changes then review my coaching programs and contact me to begin your journey!
- Effectively Dealing with Healthcare Professionals:
Receive the best care possible from healthcare professionals by developing highly effective communication skills.
In addition to these categories, you will learn hundreds and hundreds of things to manage your life more easily, to make your life work for YOU, to eliminate the fears and self-sabotage holding you back and keeping you ill.
I want you to stop reading for just one moment to ask yourself these questions:
- What does a healthy life look like?
- What would change for me if I could regain my health?
- “What is a new life, full of health and success worth to me?
- What will that be worth over the course of my life, not just for me but my family and others around me who I care about?
Does this really work?
Yes! The result of our work is an approach that, over time and with your dedication, works consistently despite the type of personal challenges. See what my clients have to say by reviewing the Success Stories.
What results can I expect?
Plain and simple, if you do the work and follow my programs you can expect healing. You can expect to take back control over your health. You will get well.
Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?
Yes, I encourage you to! Please go to the Success Stories page and read all of them. Determine which ones you feel drawn to either because the person has gotten the results you want to get or perhaps because that person is in a similar profession. Then feel free to email me so that I can connect you.
How quickly can I expect results?
Obviously, this depends on your particular issue and how much you put into the assignments that are given to you. That said, most clients get relief immediately after the first session.
Do you offer any type of guarantee?
If you commit to doing all your assignments, and showing up for our sessions, being totally focused on getting results, and understand that it’s not a “quick fix,” - it’s not magic, if after one month of coaching with me, you are not making any progress, I will provide a refund. Understand that this is only for the first month (4 weeks). This should allow you enough time to decide if we are a match. In addition, if you feel we aren't a good match, I will be happy to refer you to another coach who may be better suited to your needs.
Teresa, based on everything I've read and heard about you, I know you’re the one I want to work with you. What are my options for getting started with you?
Great! Did you know that one of the most prominent characteristics of successful people is that they take action? They take educated risks, are decisive, and they move forward toward success faster as a direct result of this. It’s a well-known fact these people make decisions based on intuition or gut feelings. So, that being said, since this feels right for you, then go for it. Congratulations on making a decision for success! I’m happy and excited to work with you to achieve your goals!
