About Theresa Levine:
Theresa's battles with past traumas, high-functioning anxiety, and ADHD trapped her in a recurring groundhog day of dis-ease, distraction, and dissatisfaction. A transformative pivot came when exhaustion, insomnia, and the struggle to be present in her own abundantly blessed life broke her down. Driven to embrace life's potential and achieve aligned success, Theresa delved into decoding her nervous system, the law of attraction, and the subconscious mind. Through Emotional Freedom Techniques, Hypnotherapy, and a fresh perspective on energy and manifestation, Theresa swiftly shed negative emotions and expanded her consciousness. This restoration brought back calm, clarity and confidence that became a foundation of success. Theresa's book, "Becoming More Me: Tapping into Success - Subconscious Secrets of an ADHD Entrepreneurial Mom" was born out of her passion to help other likeminded women on their quest to ditch anxiety, limiting beliefs, and past trauma. Readers are guided through reclaiming their power and stepping into a new paradigm rich in self-trust, groundedness, and uplifting beliefs that empower them to manifest their greatest dreams and desires. As an EFT Master Practitioner and Hypnotherapist, Theresa implements a unique and integrative approach to nervous system regulation, subconscious mind work, law of attraction, and energy strategy. She has coached and guided countless clients to:
Triumph over significant past traumas
Overcome money blocks and create next level income
Improve their relationship with self and others
Conquer fears, phobias, and anxieties
Enhance productivity and time management, and
Navigate challenging life transitions (such as Death, Divorce, Parenting, Sickness, Marriage, Moving, and Career Changes) with newfound ease. Theresa Lear Levine is the Founder of Becoming More Me and host of the Becoming More Me Podcast. She lives near Washington, DC, with her husband, Jeff, their 4 boys and 2 yellow labs.
