About Teresa Petersen Mendoza
I understand how it feels to be stuck. Stuck in an unhappy marriage, chronically single, or navigating the changes of a blended family. I've been there, that was my life. By combining life experience and education, I found happiness and success. I've made it my life's goal to help others do the same.
Not all therapists and coaches are made the same. I engage clients quickly in the change process. I'm direct and my goal is to get you feeling better, making changes and moving forward - ASAP!
