Theresa's Story

Born and raised in San Fransisco, I was drawn to art and photography at a young age. 
The camera became a sanctuary for me to safely witness the world around me. As soon as I turned 17, I was off to New York to pursue my dreams. This lead me into a thirty year career in photography, capturing countless weddings, couples, and families. Over the years I became increasingly familiar with family and relationship dynamics. Through refining my communication skills and holding space for people in vulnerable times, I developed a passion for making people feel comfortable, free, and embodied in front of the camera.

Despite having a successful career, and connecting with people through my work, I lived in a constant state of anxiety. My past life experiences and trauma weighed on me, and manifested through fear, anger, and stress on a daily basis. The decisions I made in my life were fueled by this pain and the core belief that “I am not enough”. This began to shift with the birth of my two daughters. I felt a deep desire to create a better life, and grow into the best possible mother for my girls. 

With this inner knowing, the first place I turned to look at my patterns was my marriage. The lack of intimacy, love, and sex left me numb to the idea that I was worthy of something more. After making strides to create a new life, I found partnership with a similar dynamic. I somehow managed to repeat the pattern of choosing a partner that did not value me the way I had begun to value myself. At the cost of maintaining the illusion of a happy marriage, I endured a twelve year relationship without the connection and intimacy I truly desired. After the loss of the girls father, financial stress, and an empty nest, the time was right for massive change. 

I began to cut through the expectations of who I was supposed to be in my marriage, and all of my relationships. I found amazing support through therapy, tantric healing, and metaphysical studies. I could finally envision and taste life of sovereignty, freedom, and happiness. The road through my healing journey would be long and uncomfortable at times, as I faced painful shadows, loneliness, and the unknown. 

For over a decade I have been devoted to my personal evolution. I created Art of Intimacy from the fruits of my healing experience. With upgraded tools, and years of hard personal work under my belt, I became a certified life coach, master reiki practitioner, and intimacy health mentor. I have facilitated workshops in the field of life coaching, love, and spirituality, in esteemed programs and spaces such as 1440 Mulitversity, Hai Global, Love Coach Academy, and many more. 

In my practice I work with couples, individuals, and young mentorship groups, guiding them to achieve the life they envision for themselves. We work with matters of intimacy, sexuality, and personal and professional life endeavors. The support I provide for my clients is rooted in compassionate communication, profound self inquiry, and personal accountability. Metaphysical mapping and awareness also has a significant role in the work we do together. You will be guided and empowered to understand your own energy body, in order to have a mindful and somatic healing experience. 

My life experiences, liberation, and growth have led me to Art of Intimacy. I am honored to share this practice with you. It takes great courage to open new doors and stand in your light. As a coach I am fulfilled by this work, and continuously committed to my education. As a mother, I am proud to provide an example of strength for my daughters. And as a woman in this world, I stand   strong in the knowing that we are all worthy of love.
