What is Life Coaching?

It is the process of helping people to identify and achieve personal goals through developing skills and attitudes that lead to self-empowerment. 

Teresa loves guiding and empowering others in an effort to help them develop a roadmap for a successful future. 

While therapy focuses on the past, LIFE COACHING focuses on the future.

Everyone Has A Story... What's Yours?

by Teresa Hill-Putnam

Life has it's ups and downs.  Believe me, I have had my share! 

I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason.  Between running my own business, having three premature babies, surviving two dysfunctional marriages which ended in divorce, overcoming my financial turmoil, living with a rare chronic neuromuscular disease, the death of my best friend at the age of 12, and raising three kids on my own as a single working life has been a roller coaster.

I have even lived through a robbery, a fire, a flood, and a pandemic. 


All in all, though, I wouldn't change a thing!  I have three amazing children, adorable grandchildren, and a lifetime of wonderful, magical, and un-forgettable memories. 

I hope you will join me as I share the lessons I have learned.
