Individual - Couple/Group - Workplace Sessions

 YOUR health, YOUR life, YOUR joy and

YOUR success is in your hands!

Taking ownership. setting healthy boundaries and leaning into self-care affords us the wiggle room to shift...gently replacing old patterns

with a new normal. 


Together we'll dissolve any roadblocks that may be keeping you emotionally paralyzed, living small or hiding from

your potential and purpose. 

Along the way you'll begin to live plugged in, perhaps for the first time.



I  call this "Transcending Turbulence."

Loss & Grief

Loss is what we experience.

Grief is what we feel. 

Grief is anchored in loss. Losses can be from any age in our life. They can be subtle or hit full force, turning your world upside. LOSS can be defined as physical death or loss of identity, security, trust or voice.

Maybe it's retirement, divorce, illness, or adoption. Perhaps it's a loss of independence, a pet

or childhood trauma or maybe you just feel "Meh" about life and not quite sure why.

Get cozy with such words as Emotional Intelligence, Triggers, Self-care and The Little as we connect dots and begin making sense of why you feel the way you do and why the heck you seem to keep repeating certain patterns. 

When we find our self stuck in pain it can quickly become our normal and 

over take our well-being.

Let's talk about what the benefits of re-framing your life would look and feel like.

~ Grief a taboo topic, I'm here to help change that ~ 

 Effective Communication 

Emotional Regulation

Emotional Regulation: At times we encounter folks who can be challenging. Let's face it, sometimes we're that person. We can find ourselves defending our thoughts, words and actions. Maybe we find ourselves beginning to listening to "reply", rather than listening to actually "hear" what's being said. 

Effective communication: invites us to show up unarmed, with no expectation of the outcome and better equipped to begin a healthy dialogue that ensures all parties feel heard and respected.

We can ALL find it is possible to begin and maintain healthy non-aggressive dialogue when we "choose" to show up willing & aware. 

10% of conflict is a difference in opinion. The remaining 90% is a result

of tone and non-verbal expression.

Habitual Stuff

(mindsets, self-sabotage)

Addiction is an intertwining of untruths, fear, loss, unresolved grief and numbing.

Life can feel overwhelming and loss is inevitable. When it shows up it can leave us feeling unmotivated, alone, overwhelmed and unworthy. When this happens folks find themselves looking for fillers or a quick fix to ease pain or to numb feelings. In short, self-medicating, self-loathing. Many times these unhealthy habitual choices lead to addictions.


Addictions ARE NOT JUST caused by unhealthy relationships with chemical based drugs and alcohol. Truth is, most folks are addicted to something. So you're not into drugs or alcohol? Other drugs of choice look like: sex, shopping, social media, cell phones, work, toxic relationships, food, workaholism, self-image, video games, anger, rescuing/saving, self-sabotage...for starters.


Regardless of our drug of choice the addiction is rooted in LOSS or "a void." Awareness, willingness and compassion accompanied with a healthy commitment and realistic plan of action are the ingredients for a solid foundation by which you'll begin building a happier, healthier self. Is it easy? Not always. Is it worth it? Just ask my clients.


Rediscover your passion. Rediscover your connection. Reconnect and Reclaim YOU!

Tap into your potential! - Get cozy with your awesomeness!

 Together we'll you back to a joy-filled, peace-filled and manageable LIFE (maybe for the first time ever).

The Little

Our Little resides deep within our adult self. The little is the residual energy of the emotionally "pinged" stages throughout life. We become emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually traumatized at different ages.  

What does it feel like? Feels hopelessness, helplessness, overwhelming and frustrating. Feels familiar, frightening and even shame-filled. These are the physical and emotional cords traveling upward as your resting little struggles to find a way to offer up a false sense of protection…these are not new sensations. We bring them along with us as we grow. How does it present in our adult life? Passive Aggressiveness, Manipulation, Anger, Frustration, Defensiveness. Defeat even Shame-filled. These however are nothing more than masks to hide the vulnerability beneath which we use as false protections.  

Do you find yourself tirelessly navigating the muck, feeling misunderstood, unheard, is there a lack of awareness or respect? Maybe things just seem off and you can’t quiet put your finger on it all you know is that despite your best efforts you seem to keep finding yourself looping back around to this same stuff.

You are not alone. Even the healthiest folks find themselves in stagnant, toxic waters from time to time. We bring a part of our past into everything we do. We bring our giggles and grins, our pensiveness, our unresolved grief/loss wounds, and our emotions.  At any point in our relationship we can become emotionally triggered  from any or all of our “unpacked baggage.” 

Left unaddressed they typically amplify. If you reflect, you can probably see how it's unfolded throughout life. It's when those actions become the "normal response" that folks are faced (If they're lucky) with making shifts…seeking guidance and creating a “new normal.”  At the core we crave very similar things when it comes to feeling accepted, respected, heard, validated and loved.

Reviewing our trigger history affords the opportunity to recognize self-sabotaging or addictive/habitual behaviors or thought patterns and why folks act and react in the ways they do. 

I offer straight forward, non-bias insights and feedback rooted in compassion, respect and empathy.  

During your sessions you will discover tools that will enable you to continue and maintain healthy, effective communication, set boundaries, recognize healthier options and break long standing cycles of personal and professional destruction…some generational. You will recognize through this process begin re-framing the fragmented pieces and reintroduce your little to your big. You will ease into fun, creativity and the childlike joy perhaps you never experienced.

Is this a quick fix? No. IF you are willing to do the work, you will position yourself so that YOU pull from your skill-set and move through any expected or unexpected obstacles that arise with patience, love and understanding.

Raising your awareness allows you to take your next right step. You’ll recognize your “bounce back or recovery” time from setbacks and misunderstandings is far less and as you create healthier pathways of living and thinking.  




Searching for "Enoughness?" Well good news, it's been with you all along!  Why spend time and energy beating yourself up for not being, doing, saying...ENOUGH? 

Why compare or measure yourself to others...Spoiler alert, it's an imaginary goal. 


Often we adopt other folks beliefs along our journey. Sometimes those folks are our closest friends and family. The kicker...their beliefs have nothing, nada, zilch to do with us!

When we choose (consciously or otherwise) live with such limitations, they manipulate and navigate our course sometimes onto a path of self destruction. Who has time or energy for that?! 

Together we can reconnect you with what invites health & happiness

back into your life. YOU are worth it! 

“I recognized I wasn’t living fully but never thought of myself as a counseling type, however after only two sessions, I knew I'd found my starting point. Teri offered a safe place to work through a lifetime of mental knots. It wasn't always easy, but she was there every step, offering support, kindness and knowledge on how to live a more full and balanced life.

Teri has a very special gift and if you're willing to accept it, I promise it will change your life.” ~ April B., Cookeville, TN.
