Ever feel like you’re “living for the Likes”?

Like you’re doing everything wrong—and no one can tell?
Like you “should be” a lot happier than you feel?
Like people love you—but not in the way you want to be loved?
Like your career looks great on paper—and that’s it?
Like everyone around you knows exactly what they want—and you have no idea?

Check out my series of simple, “radically practical” strategies for navigating career burnout, anxiety, dating, and whatever else the world sends your way.

Your Guide to a Life You’ll Love

Hi. I can help you turn your pre-best life into one that you wouldn’t trade for anything. As a licensed psychotherapist, life coach, and former twenty-something, I’ve developed a series of simple in-the-now strategies for navigating career burnout, anxiety, dating, and whatever else the world sends your way. I call my tactics “radically practical” because they’re all about making big changes a little at a time, from wherever you are right now. These exercises and approaches worked for me, they work for my real-life clients, and they can work for you too.

CNBC Named Tess “The Millennial Therapist,”
thanks to her 15 years of experience helping young people find their purpose, develop their confidence, and create a life they’re excited about living. 

Find the True You…

And do it in a way that really makes sense. Tess’s approach is designed around the idea that anyone can make big changes with the right strategies in place. It’s all about finding what works for you.

Whatever your style, there’s a way to make the change you crave. Take a minute to check out Tess’s books, workbooks, and courses.

“When I came to Tess, I knew I needed to make a change, but I felt stuck and unsure about which direction to go. During our time together, she has helped me transform my life to better reflect who I am and what I want to be about. Tess has helped me figure out how to positively channel my energy and express myself in constructive, healthy ways that I feel good about. She is sharp, and able to zoom out and look at the big picture without losing sight of important details. Tess is brutally honest, supportive, and committed to my success. She has really challenged me to think for myself and has empowered me to make decisions on my own and take initiative.”

D.B., Tess coaching client, Age 32

“Tess is fantastic. I searched for a coach that really understood Millennial career issues and had a deep toolkit of different approaches. I also wanted someone who understood the challenges of a high paced job. Tess ticked all these boxes. Other coaches were too specific to consulting, too executive, or lacked understanding of younger mindsets.

Tess has the playbooks in mind to make you understand what matters to you and helps you think out your solutions. She is a terrific listener. She went the extra mile to be available, especially on bad days at the office. Best of all, Tess is supportive but also constructive and structured with her advice. She is always thinking about your best long term interests. And she applies her vast experience of coaching people our age.

So if you are scratching your head wondering why you are doing what you are doing, speak to Tess. I recommend it strongly.”

David, 38 (McKinsey Consultant)

“Tess helped me reorient to my goals so that I could move forward out of stagnation to a more fulfilling path. She focused on my specific needs and was able to provide not only her presence and dialogue but other resources that I could pursue at my leisure. Her powerful and engaging personality created an atmosphere where communication about difficult subjects flowed naturally,”

C.S., Tess coaching client, Age 22

“Working with Tess has been the most life-changing experience for me—I am so grateful for the many ways she has empowered me to be a more confident, secure, and balanced person over our work together. She is so easy to open up to, non-judgmental, and has an incredible sense of humor—she’s enabled so many perspective shifts and ‘aha moments’ for me, and I can’t thank her enough! Coaches like Tess make the world a better place.” 

M.D., Tess coaching client, Age 25 

“Tess is the hero young adults aren’t looking for–she helps them see the roadblocks to setting and achieving life goals, and normalizes the challenges they face as real, solvable, and tractable. Plus she provides young adults with the tools and the mental frame to help build the life they dream of.  Thank you, Tess, for giving our next generation a path forward!”
