Reviews: “Coach Teresa did premarital counseling for my (now) husband and me. Her wise coaching, tools and techniques gave us a fantastic start as a married couple. Five years later we have two children and are getting ready to take off in to the mission field.” Sandra. “Teresa, I am extremely thankful for you. I didn’t think that I would ever have freedom from the pain of growing up with a narcissistic mother. Through understanding who I am, using the Enneagram, I have been able to forgive my mother, create appropriate boundaries and once again have a relationship with her.” Melissa “Thank you, Teresa. One of the greatest things you helped me to see was how my childhood wounds were impacting me today. I have learned to reparent my child and have my adult be in charge of me and not my 10 year old. My life has forever been impacted.” Sarah. “Teresa, as a fellow pastor, I am thankful for you. Over the past year, I have begun to walk in freedom from being co-dependent to being who God created me to be. I am much more effective in my calling as a pastor and have gained confidence in the ability to know when to say, ‘yes’ and when to say, ‘no.'” Shane.

2023 Enneagram Coach
My Enneagram Coach; Your Enneagram Counselor

After utilizing and studying about the Enneagram, I decided to take the Enneagram certification program through Your Enneagram Counselor/Coach. It was a fantastic experience and helped me to dive deeper into new ways to help my clients in using the Enneagram to experience transformational life change. I had already earned other coaching certificates (Brain Coach through Dr. Amen, Mental Health Coach through AACC and DiSC certification).

2010 Relationship Coach and Premarital Counseling - Masters Degree
Colorado Theological Seminary - Clinical Counseling Masters Degree

I was on staff at a large multi-site church for 20 years. As the COO, my responsibility was overseeing staff strategically in regards to their ministries, goals, spiritual formation and budgets. As the years went on, our employees began to share the deepest part of their souls with me. To be as effective as possible in ministering to them, I went back to seminary to earn a Masters in Christian Clinical Counseling. This is one of the reasons that I was drawn to learn more about the Enneagram as I have found it to be a profoundly effective clinical assessment tool in my practice.

2005 Leadership Coach
Lifeforming Leadership Coaching

In my role as a COO for a large multi-site and as a founder of an elementary school, I wanted to shift the way I was leading people. I took one-year long program to become a certified life and leadership coach. This was a game changer in many relationship venues as a leader. Taking a coach approach in an organization creates collaboration, longevity, and greater satisfaction with employees.
