After having bariatric surgery, Teresa found herself dealing with transfer addictions. She quickly learned that her food addiction became a new problem when alcohol took over. It took a lot of effort to become alcohol-free but once she discovered This Naked Mind methodology, she found the path to freedom and overall wellness with a balanced life. Having this experience allows her to relate to and coach women who may find themselves dealing with their own battles with transfer addictions.
Becoming alcohol-free in 2021, she realized the many life-changing benefits of being alcohol-free from having improved relationships, to a better quality of sleep and weight loss. Teresa’s goal is to share her knowledge with others and assist them on their own alcohol-free journey. She believes that becoming alcohol-free opens so many opportunities to enjoy life in a new authentic way. She genuinely believes that it is never too late for a new beginning in life. She feels that true happiness is when we decide to put down the bottle and celebrate the new life-changing alcohol-free journey.
