Theresa Ann Stuesser, PCC, UWCPC, BSEd

As a life coach and business-building coach with an emphasis on self-actualization, I specialize in helping individuals who feel called to be their authentic selves and live in integrity with who they are, while creating the reality they desire and serving their world by being themselves. We do this by…
  • Embracing ourselves and our unique gifts and contributions
  • Cultivating clarity for our personal vision, mission, and purpose
  • Illuminating a path of intentionality from our intended reality
  • Aligning our feelings, beliefs, words, choices, and behaviors to that which we are creating
  • Developing and honing practices that nurture and steward ourselves and our legacies
  • Co-creating a space of support, love, and personal evolution for ourselves and one another on our path of self-discovery, symbiotic service, and life fulfillment
Theresa Ann Card Reading

Working with me will change your life, and I guaran-fucking-tee it. I believe you’ve arrived on this page for a reason, that you are at a very powerful place on your journey, and that it’s time to own your dreams. This likely means owning your story, owning your authentic self and no longer giving away your power due to limiting beliefs that you aren’t enough, are too much, aren’t competent, or aren’t ready.  From the bottom of my heart, I lovingly call bullshit on the saboteur voices that keep you feeling stuck, spinning your wheels, and not moving forward at the speed you’d like to be going.

Still here? I’m glad because frankly, I believe there are people in the world that need you this very moment. It’s my job to lovingly and supportingly take coaches by the hand to help them put the pieces of designing, building, and growing a coaching business together, while also helping them to not lose their shit while they master the art of getting their shit together. I know, because I’ve walked that journey myself.

I receive immense pleasure and fulfillment from teaching my ideal client coaches how to short-cut the solopreneur path, so they can achieve in months what took me years to create. I believe it’s not only a path, but a journey, a destiny to reach and then continue to evolve as a coach combines their coaching and their calling in order to turn their personal and professional dreams into reality, the ultimate journey of entrepreneurial self-realization – entrepreneurial enlightenment.

Are you feeling both excited and anxious at the thought of it? Breathe in and ground your excitement. And don’t worry about the anxiety. I can teach you how I slay it and use it to activate your unique superpowers. You’ll need them on this journey. Feeling called? It’s time to own full creative control of your label, just like a music artist. Welcome to the solopreneur journey. Fasten your seatbelt. I have all the tools in my back pocket and if you give me the honor of escorting you as your trusted co-pilot and confidante I’ll hold your hand through the scary parts of the adventure and help you navigate each launch…

Every person’s life is a mosaic of their conscious and subconscious beliefs, experiences, knowledge, emotions, thoughts, mindsets, words, and actions. Not only do I have professional training as a life coach, but each piece of my past experiences — in my work and life experience — have created my own life mosaic that helps me to serve my clients and the mosaic that they are creating for themselves.

Synergizing my experience from 30 years combined as a professional educator, executive administrator, trained intuitive, spiritual coach, highly credentialed ICF coach, coach trainer, coach mentor, and as a positioning and marketing strategist, I guide coach solopreneurs to clarify a branding and business model vision with purpose, as well as a plan of execution for success.

I build and nurture a trusted, safe, and supportive relationship so my clients feel held mentally and emotionally through their process of transformation so they don’t feel alone. My clients are always treated like human beings and never feel like they are a number.

Who I Work With

Though all are welcome, I specialize in creating powerful alliances with heart-centered, service-oriented coaches who use their passion, experience, and wisdom to make a positive impact for the benefit of others. Most of my clients aren’t just in the coaching field to make an income. They’re here to make an impact. Most feel they have a calling. My passion is to help them answer that calling! My offerings include 1:1 coaching, group coaching, hybrids, masterminds, and retreats through my self-development company, Mosaic of Self Institute, LLC.

Passionate Sampler of Life

When I’m not coaching or teaching, I enjoy a wide array of activities. These things turn me on: neuroscience, right-left brain balance, quantum physics, somatics, multiple intelligences, personality assessments, archetype assessments, positive psychology, shadow work, saboteur work, superpower identification and development, Ayurveda, Kundalini, chakras, intuition, mindfulness, holistic and natural living, edible and native plant gardening, DIY projects, cooking, meditation, yoga, weightlifting, stand up paddleboarding, canoeing, cycling (especially on my fatbike), camping, hiking, nature, hammock naps, dancing, live music, festivals, local foods, craft beer, craft spirits, website design, social media, solopreneurship, being with my daughters, entertaining and hosting parties…and living my fullest expression in life while I work hard, play hard, and love hard.

Who I Am and Who I’ve Been

Professional Coach

A professional coach, I am experienced in the art and science of personal and business transformation. I hold a PCC credential with the International Coach Federation and have Professional Life Coach Certification from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.

Integrating my clients’ individual learning styles, multiple intelligences, unique superpowers, work experiences, and life journey, I facilitate experiential coaching sessions guiding them to the answers within for the sake of helping them embody and live out their full potential. When I’m coaching an individual, I see the whole person and their full potential. My passion is to assist my clients in the deep personal growth and super-learning needed to see themselves in their highest vision and align their outer world with who they are on the inside in order to be the fullest realization of who they are here to be.

I offer 1:1 and group coaching engagements, as well as courses through my Aligned Coach Business Academy virtual programs such as the Authentic Attraction Accelerator™️ featuring Rocket Launch Your Coaching Practice™️, the Signature System Incubator™️,  and the Marketing Bridge Blueprint™️.

Coach Trainer/Mentor

I believe wholeheartedly in the core competencies set forth by the International Coach Federation as a vehicle for personal and professional transformation. All coaches credentialed by the ICF are not only trained in the core competencies as part of their required instructional hours but must demonstrate their knowledge and experience via both a written and oral exam. A teacher at heart and a believer in the power of coaching culture, it feels natural that I serve as a trainer and mentor of coaches preparing for certification.

Personally and professionally, I resonate deeply with the values of relationship, purpose, integrity, creativity, humor, and connection, so it also feels natural that I currently serve as a coach trainer for the Preuss CoachLeader Academy. PCLA holds these values as their guiding principles.

Spiritual Mentor

A spiritual coach trained through the Seminary of Spiritual Peacemaking, I’ve coached individuals to bring peacemaking into their personal and professional lives. A trained intuitive through the California Board of Hypnotherapy, I hold an Angel Therapy Practioner® certificate and am a Usui Reiki II practitioner. I have keen intuition and a sense of when to go deeper or think bigger. For clients exploring deep personal growth or their spiritual path of healing and living an enlightened way of being, we can integrate the intuitive arts into our coaching agreement, create a mentor relationship or build a lifestyle practice to help you reach your goals. I have 20 years of experience in practices and modalities such as meditation, yoga, mantra and mudra, the chakra system, guided visualization and more.  I help clients connect deeply to the spirit of who they are and inspire them to be the CNO (chief navigational officer) consciously creating the personal world they want to live in.


A self discovery and self awareness junky, I’ve offered classes and workshops through my self development company, Mosaic of Self Institute, LLC since 2004. Four cornerstone beliefs shape my offerings:  1.) Aristotle’s belief that human beings have within them an innate intelligence of the potential and purpose within, 2.) Einstein’s belief that life is a creative process through which we are evolving and that a problem cannot be solved with the same level of consciousness that created it, 3.) Gandhi’s axiom, “We must be the change we wish to see in the world,” and 4.) The Dalai Lama’s statement that feminine leadership will save the world.

Educator and Administrator

With a BS in Education and specialized graduate trainging, I worked for schools in the Milwaukee and Phoenix metro areas where I specialized in transformational outcome-based education, holistic education and growth groups as an elementary school teacher, student teacher mentor, teacher trainer and assistant principal. When I notice patterns in my clients’ agendas or growth areas, it inspires me address their pain points or growth edges. I use their authentic needs as the ongoing platform for the Mosaic of Self Institute curriculum I write which is offered in the form of my classes, workshops, retreats and special events.
