Build a life you don't
need a vacation from.


Hi, I’m Dr. Therese!

Remote Psychologist | Digital Nomad

I created Exploring Therapy to inspire people to live braver, healthier, more connected lives that they are simply in love with - lives they don’t need a vacation from.

Where you've seen me:


I offer therapy and lead courses and groups to help you thrive in the life of your dreams.

I’m here for the pent up explorers, the anxious & multipassionate out of the box thinkers, and the overwhelmed overachievers to remind you that you’re awesome and that something you’ve been longing for - you can abso-fricken-lutely do it, have it, make it happen! I believe there are better days ahead for you. This crazy, demanding, sometimes chaotic life - it doesn’t have to be this way. If you’re passionate about a dream, I believe the world will be better if you can make that dream happen. And if you’re facing an obstacle to that dream, just know that you’re not alone in the slightest.

If you’re on a mental health journey, I’m here to be your guide. With kindness, science-backed health hacks, and a focus on small doable steps, I’ve successfully helped guide hundreds of clients over the past 10+ years along their journey toward living the life of their dreams. You can throw out the picture you have in your heard about what therapy is. Say goodbye to the musty sofas and old bearded dudes with glasses and cardigans. Say hello to energy, insight, and yes, sometimes even FUN, while we team up to help you become the very best version of you. Every client is different so we’ll customize your therapy to serve you and your unique needs and goals.

If you’re a fellow therapist or health professional interested in telemental health so you can be a remote therapist or digital nomad (aka traveling the world as you continue to make a living) but don’t know where to start, I’ve got your back. I’ve been practicing this way for years and can help you learn what you need to make it happen in the most professional way possible. (And avoid all the mistakes I made.) Spoiler alert: Yes, you can wear sweatpants everyday to work. And trust me when I say, it’s glorious.

One of my life hacks that has made a huge positive impact in my life is to get a Personal “Board of Directors” - a group of wise people that you respect that you can consult with and seek advice from regularly. If you’re a woman looking for mentorship and accountability to build the life of your dreams with health and intentionality, I offer a mentorship group with a limited number of spots, so that you can get lots of care and attention. The best part is that you’ll be in the company of other like-minded women who are right alongside you so you can support each other along the way.


Are you picking up what I’m putting down?

About Exploring Therapy

About Exploring Therapy

Exploring Therapy is a community dedicated to helping people live braver, healthier, more connected lives.


We explore what wellness looks like in the therapy office and beyond.

We believe that being healthy is a mind, body, and soul practice.

We believe that love is essential, that relationships are the greatest source of health and healing, and that people like you and me have the power to make a real and impactful change in our world.

We prefer to be warm people over cool people.

We believe we have the power to hold space for one another.

We believe that overcoming our fears makes for the best kind of life.

We believe that enjoying life should happen everyday - not just weekends, or in two weeks of vacation a year.

We search and sometimes fight for the small moments of joy and delight that bring balance to our busy lives, often spent serving others.

We advocate for self-care in all forms, including therapy, long coffee dates with friends, and dark chocolate.

We believe in giving back, failing up, serving others, generosity, and kindness to our planet and home.

We believe that more often than not, anything we do is best done together. That’s why Exploring Therapy exists.
