As a result of over 20 years of being a Dating Coach & Couples Therapist, for men and women, I’ve created over 200 Personal Growth & Spiritual Development programs to help YOU succeed in your LOVE LIFE. Too many relationship woes are the direct result of not evolving as a human being, doing your inner work, and character development. Another big glitch in your system is not getting out enough in Nature. Nature is a great healer, to soothe your nerves, so you can think more clearly about your options.
How do you want to be loved? How do you want to love? What is your loving style? Is it compatible with your mate’s loving style? Have you thought about how they want to love & be loved? Do you endeavor to reach their heart? In the USA, we tend to live in our heads, obsess over money & careers, and neglect our emotional well-being. As a result, DEPRESSION & ANXIETY rule many a roost. But you can change this. AWARENESS is the first step, when climbing out of a hole.
Next, you must be able to talk about MARRIAGE. Maybe not right away, but if you’re not able to broach the “M” word, you’re really not in a mature relationship. And if you can’t discuss that, what else are you avoiding that’s going to wreck havoc down the road? But tread lightly. A kind tone of voice will work wonders. Besides, what do you want your LOVE STORY to tell? COUPLES have their work cut out for them, but it’s like parenthood, one of the greatest challenges which yield one of the greatest rewards.
When it comes to RELATIONSHIP ADVICE, you’ll have to slow down and really ponder your situation. Put yourself in your beloved’s shoes. Like Leonard Cohen said, “Everyone is engaged in a mighty struggle for self-respect, meaning and significance. The first step would be to recognise that your struggle and your suffering is the same as everyone else’s. I think that’s the beginning of a responsible life. Otherwise we are in a continual savage battle with each other with no possible solution, political, social or spiritual.”

We can always add the others for your tailored program. Review the list below and let us know what you think:
COUPLES THERAPY ~ LOVE in the 21st CENTURY
1 MARRIAGE COUNSELING & COMMUNICATION SKILLS: Coaching Program
As an alternative to traditional marriage counseling, we offer Couples Coaching programs. Teresa begins by listening to both you and your partner, to hear what you perceive as the problem(s) and then works with you to create an action plan which helps you move forward on your path to a happy home.
2 A GOOD, HAPPY LIFE: Life Coaching for Individuals
Sometimes in a marriage, each partner needs to work more on their individual goals before focusing on their relationship goals. This could be after or before traditional marriage counseling or couples coaching. This individual coaching program can be done by phone or online for you to feel your progress. Health, career, self-expression, & personal growth are just a few examples.
3 COMPATIBILITY ASSESSMENT: Resolving Differences
Using a variety of methods, Teresa will assess you and your partner’s similarities and differences, so you can more consciously co-create a fulfilling relationship together. This coaching program helps you recognize which differences enrich your relationship and which ones may need further attention.
4 DATING YOUR MATE: Bring Back the Passion
Just because your married or living together, doesn’t mean you don’t crave romance! But sometimes the mundane aspects of life seem to interfere with the closeness you once shared. Dating Your Mate is a wonderful coaching program to help you rekindle your passion & enjoy the emotional and physical intimacy you crave. Weekly sessions make all the difference.
5 ECSTATIC LIFESTYLES: Everyday Practices for Domestic Bliss
Teresa believes that Life is meant to be an epic adventure of intelligent choices which lead us to a fulfilling life. So, she offers this ECSTATIC LIFESTYLES program to consult with you on your lifestyle choices. Many people are not aware of the wide variety of options available to them, but that’s why we’re here, to help you create a Life you love living.
6 ELDER HUG: Couples Over 65
As we age, we have different concerns. What was important to you or your partner when you were in your 20s isn’t going to be exactly the same in your 60s or older. Elder Hug helps you work through the challenges facing many elder couples so you can truly feel enriched by your life as you savor this stage of your Life.
7 FENG SHUI BEDROOM: Creating Love’s Sanctuary
Teresa has also been a professional feng shui consultant for 20 years. Making your bedroom a veritable sanctuary is a very good idea, whether you’re single of married. Having consulted home owners for many years, Teresa offers you feng shui bedroom ideas to add that special ambience, making sure your bedroom provides a nurturing, romantic environment to support your marital harmony.
8 FENG SHUI your HEART: Emotional Release for Rational Thinking
When we have conscious or unconscious resistance to feeling good, we need to clear the clutter that lies within our hearts. This coaching program offers you a safe space for emotional release, which quickly helps you think more clearly and be more receptive to feeling good again. If you’re seeking relief from mild anxiety, depression, grief, or other burden, this counseling program will help you. Note: chronic conditions are best handled by a psychologist, rather than a coach. While Teresa has had amazing results with her clients, sometimes a client will need medical attention in addition to or rather than coaching, at least for a while.
9 HONORING the FEMININE: Understanding Feminine Needs
Around the world, most societies recognize that women are of value. However, they may or may not permit women to express themselves freely, allowing them to ask for what they really want, or speaking up when they feel something is wrong. Some families don’t like it when a woman or girl is too happy, or too sad. As a result, a woman may not know what she wants or feel safe asking for it. This coaching program helps men and women address the needs and desires of women in a safe, caring & empowering way.
10 FEMALE LED RELATIONSHIP / FEMALE LED MARRIAGE
Once a couple has explored the feminine perspective enough, they often recognize that while men are often dedicated to their careers, women have a more intuitive comprehension of what their marriage or family needs. For this reason, a new movement has emerged, to support women’s leadership in the home. Toward this aim, Teresa has created a program to help couples explore the various levels of Female Wisdom & Authority in a relationship, including Female Led Relationship & Female Led Marriage or Wife Led Marriage. If this is of interest for you, just let her know.
