About Teresa

I am a Point Loma mom with two children at Explorer Elementary School. I am also a counselor and parent educator who specializes in working with women who want to have a more meaningful and fulfilled life and parents who want to replace everyday parenting struggles with everyday joys.


Hi, I’m Teresa and I’m so glad you’re here.

I have always had a passion for education and working with others and have journeyed through lots of different professions to finally land in my sweet spot which is coaching. Before having kids, I worked full time; first as an elementary school teacher and then for several years as both an elementary and middle school counselor.

Once my first born came along, I molded several part-time jobs together to give myself the flexible schedule I craved as a new mother. This melting pot of jobs consisted of teaching graduate counseling courses for the University of San Diego, facilitating parent education classes for a variety of preschools and elementary schools throughout San Diego County, writing columns for a women’s health and wellness newsletter, providing staff development trainings to schools in San Diego, and working for an educational research firm.

My true fulfillment professionally comes from what I am happily doing these days: facilitating parenting classes, leading trainings for schools and organizations and most importantly, coaching clients – watching them grow and increase their own happiness in ways that continually amaze me. It is an honor, joy and privilege and I am deeply grateful to have the opportunity to do the work that I do.

I specialize in working with parents who want to replace everyday parenting struggles with everyday joy. They want to learn tools to help their children thrive and become emotionally healthy, resilient, successful and happy. These parents recognize that they have the most important job on the planet and they are seeking some support on their journey through parenthood.

I also help women of all ages who know deep down that they could be more fulfilled in their life. Whether it is feeling lost and lonely, struggling as a new mother, trying to find work/life balance or having trouble connecting with their true passion, these women all know one thing for sure – they deserve to live a happier life and they need a little guidance to get there.

I hold a Masters in Counseling and am a Certified Martha Beck Life Coach. I am action oriented and goal driven and will give you specific and concrete tools in each session that will help you uncover joy and live the life you were truly meant to live.
