Hi there-

I’m Teresa.

I live on an island in the middle of the Salish sea with my husband and three daughters.

I love to play with my kids, swim in the Puget Sound, dance my heart out, write about my internal process, learn from my emotions, act, sing, laugh, make delicious food, watch shows with my family, heal, evolve, & become more and more mySelf.

I am an actress, a writer, a lover, and an explorer of my Inner Wilderness.

It is my belief that we are each on a journey of becoming & expanding,

of deeply unfolding into the fullness of who we are, based on our connection to our Divine Core.

A bit from my history:

When I was 21, craving a more connected and embodied way of being, I headed off to a Zen Buddhist monastery in Japan.

This was an incredibly transformative experience which also included 6 months living and working in a hospice home affiliated with the monastery, where I became a CPA and cared for the dying.

I ended up staying in the monastery in Japan for nearly 5 years, meeting my future husband there, and conceiving our first child there–that was our cue to leave the monastery and graduate on to the next stage of our spiritual journey: daily life, relationship, & parenthood!

My style of parenting has been very hands-on & heart-centered.

I was able to have all three of our daughters at home in what were powerful & empowering beautiful birth experiences.

I have nursed them all until they have chosen to wean, and we live an unschooling lifestyle together, based on consent, connection, Joy, and fun.

I now support women on their journey of self-exploration and self-expression, helping them to create deeply intimate relationships with themselves and with Source and to allow life to flow from there. I also lead spiritual practices and women’s groups that encourage a connection to the Inner Wild.

Thanks so much for dropping by and saying hello!

With Love,



I was honored to be interviewed twice by Pam Laricchia on her Exploring Unschooling podcast. Listen to the first episode here or, if you want to see all my funny facial expressions and hand gestures, watch it on YouTube here 🙂 The second episode we recorded is here.

I was also interviewed by my wonderful husband on his YouTube channel . We talked about spirituality, Zen, parenthood, and more. You can view that video here.

And finally, I was recently interviewed by Berry Crawford of Simplicity Zen. You can watch that interview here.
