I work with people who are in fear of their health. I empower them to take a bold step and transition to a Whole Food Plant Based lifestyle so they can regain their vitality and feel like they are 25 again!
My career as a Cardiology Nurse Practitioner allowed me to help patients in many ways. Transitioning to health coaching has allowed me to have the greatest impact with my patients and clients! Providing the right system, the right support and the right stretch is key. I can partner with you to have the health you desire. I love to work with women and men to reverse health issues that may have developed and improve how you feel mentally and physically! It's all connected and a holistic view is essential.
My own journey to finding a healthy lifestyle was made so much easier when I found coaching! I needed the accountability and this, along with my strong sense of persistence, has helped me achieve more than I could without the help. Partnering with me as your coach may be that missing piece that will allow you to have what you really want.
My education and training completes my coaching arsenal – allowing me to provide you, the client, with the tools and methods you need to achieve your goals. I am one of the first 1200 Nationally Certified Health Coaches in the United States! If you are willing to open your mind to possibilities, I can support you in your journey to your best health!
Through my sessions with Teri Yunus as my health coach, I learned the difference between ‘losing’ and ‘releasing.’ Yes, I lost weight, but I also released old habits, negative thinking, dependence on prescription medications, and lack of hope about my future. My advice to prospective clients: sign up with Teri and follow the path she illuminates for you. However you define ‘health’ today, you will come away from your coaching sessions with a surprisingly new perspective on how to feel good in what you eat, how you love, and who you are. Buckle up: you’re in for an amazing journey!
“Nine months ago, I engaged Teri Yunus as my health coach. I was significantly overweight, unhappy, and not very motivated to change my life. To be honest, at 63 years old, I didn’t have much faith that I would be able to make lasting changes, even with Teri’s help.
“Today I am 50 pounds lighter than when Teri and I started working together, and I am off medications I took for decades. My progress has been a series of advancements and slight setbacks, but I keep moving forward. For me, Teri’s focus on a compassionate vegan diet rings true to my values. That has been the key to my success. Because of Teri’s help, I can express compassion not only for animals and the environment in the way that I eat, but also compassion for myself.”
I frequently tell people I know that Teri is one of the most inspirational people I have ever met, and I truly mean this. I met Teri part of the way in my journey of a plant-based/vegan lifestyle choice. At the point I met Teri I was struggling and thirsting for knowledge and low and behold a plant based angel dropped into my life and at the best time possible. Just to back track a few steps, the reason I was struggling was I found it hard to sift through all the bad and negative information about plant based eating, like how will I get enough protein and other misnomers on how a plant based diet wont work. On a personal note I struggled to fit in with my decision to become plant based as a male frankly because it wasn't very manly according to my friends and colleagues. Teri gave me the support, courage and guidance to overcome the negativity by showing me ways to turn negative situations around and also giving me trusted sources and information debunking all the things we think we need from animal proteins. During my time with Teri I had ups and downs and she was with me every step of the way. Her approach to me was comparable to the bond of brotherhood you feel when in battle and you never leave a fallen man or women behind. Teri has a contagious and unique way of making you laugh and smile while completing goals and tasks that are not impossible. I cannot think of any person that has been a more profound positive influence in my life! I'm very thankful to call her my coach, she is truly the best. --Nick/U.S. Army Veteran
I want you to know how thankful I am for your coaching and being on this journey with me. I was not in a good place when I first called you. I believe my description was "frumpy". I know I was not in the place I wanted to be. I had retired in October and found myself just drifting from day to day, gaining weight, and had an increasing cholesterol level and Hgb AIc level (prediabetic). Common sense and my nursing background (RN) told me I knew what to do but I was trapped in my daily "rut".
I had attended one of your seminars earlier and was aware of your programs. I was envious of your energy and healthfulness. I decided to reach out to you to seriously investigate what options were available for me. That was the best decision I could make and was the start of my journey and accountability for my future. With your help, I now feel I am in such a better place. I have energy, I have lost weight, and I have a better focus and direction for my long term health goals.
I needed the accountability. During our conversations, you helped me focus and gave valuable suggestions to help make small changes that will now impact my future lifestyle. I was so impressed with your knowledge and current evidence based information.
This journey had it's ups and downs (changes and results were not always as consistent or fast as I wanted). The discoveries about myself were interesting and insightful. You were there and supportive through it all!! I am so grateful!
Rarely do I come across a person, a personality and a passionate persona of the like of Teri Yunus who came recommended to me by a good friend on the whole food & plant-based deal. Being a cynic by default, I was uncertain about this nutrition gig and getting counsel on it - however, Teri wiped my cynicism off my face in seconds with her positivity, energy and compassion that I am sold on the concept and counseling Teri provides. Just a joy to be around and her knowledge and insight are gems which keep me showing up. Thank you! Thank you, Teri Yunus!
