Theresa Walsh Velendzas

I am passionate about helping you step into joyful living in your body, your relationships, and into the future you design.

It all begins with discovering, clarifying, and designing actionable next steps personalized to you without guilt, shame, or pain. 

Untangle yourself from the messages of toxic diet and fitness culture and the burdens of what your life should be like and step into a more nourished and empowered YOU for easeful living in your next chapter.

I have studied and experienced this overcoming firsthand and learned the value of a compassionate, personalized approach. My experience and training serve to help YOU also continue to develop beyond our time together and thrive with confidence.

With a career in social services and advocacy work in clinical settings, I am also a Nationally Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC), Certified Master Health Coach, and Level 3 Certified Practitioner in IFS
 (Internal Family Systems) which heavily influences my approach to mindfulness.   I am also certified in multiple other wellness modalities including Nutrition, Fitness, and Breath Work. I have studied MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and hold degrees in Psychology and HealthCare Management.

I am a dual citizen Greek-American and I love the sea, the woods, vegetable gardening, and cooking. I am a mom of two humans, a dog, a cat, several schools of fish, and according to my husband, too many houseplants. 

Coaching women holistically feels right and has had the most sustainable results for myself and my clients.  I am passionate about helping you flourish without the short-lived, often painful "no pain-no gain" bully tactics in pop culture. 

Coaching that connects us to our core self, values, and strengths offers enduring change that is the life force of our own flourishing.
I am grateful for the opportunity to share my story and guide you on your amazing journey to thriving wellness and personal success in your goals. 
In gratitude for your interest in me, I would like to offer a free Core Needs Reflection Activity  HERE  to get you started.  You can also email me at to schedule a 20-minute discovery call,  try a single discounted 60-minute session with no obligation to sign on, or need to jump right into the 12-week guided Wellness Evolution program.
I look forward to connecting with you. 
With Love,
