My name is Teresa and I'm from Southern California. I received my BA and MA in Psychology. I strongly believe in helping people help themselves towards lasting health. I have worked with children mostly, but have also owned my own organic farming business. I believe food plays a major role in mental health and that people can bring themselves into proper mental and emotional health through food, exercise and education on coping skills and techniques. I love to cook and bake, and I will try any food once. Hiking is my number one stress reliever; dancing is my second stress reliever. I love animals, traveling, and finding time for good books and movies.
When working with students, I like to let the student lead me through their learning process and adapt to meet their needs. Everyone learns differently and I like to support my student in what works for them. When a student feels understood and heard, they're more likely to be open and receptive to new skills and a new viewpoint that will help expand their learning.
