I was at a stage in my career where I felt like I’d pushed myself to my max, but the role I was in no longer aligned with my goals and wasn’t bringing me true joy or satisfaction. Because I was focusing on the needs of others before my own, my health suffered, I’d put on weight and inevitably lost my self-confidence. Theresa showed me that putting myself first isn’t selfish at all and helped me build self-awareness, so I understood how my habits and behaviors were influencing the outcomes I was getting.

Now I’m working with a personal trainer 3x a week, doing online courses to explore my creative passions, and recovering from my perfectionistic and people-pleasing ways so I don’t take everything so personally. I can confidently speak up without getting defensive or reactive, I feel more relaxed and at peace with myself, and the pressure and stress I was carrying on my shoulders before I started this journey gets lighter with every session.
