“Before I started 1/1 Coaching with Theresa I had a lot of anxiety around Dating, I was so anxious on the 1st date, I wasn’t confident and couldn’t be myself that I would seldom get a 2nd date. Although I tried different programs online and I read lots of books on dating, I didn’t have any tools! I looked at several different dating coaches and chose Theresa because I felt comfortable with her style and she took time to care about me and created a personal program for my dating needs. Reading things online was 1 thing, but it was a different experience and valuable asset to have an expert to hold my hand. Also, having someone to be accountable to really helped motivate me to step out of my comfort zone and do things that I normally wouldn’t in the dating realm. We did some role-playing which increased my confidence on dates and soon after, my dating life changed. After working with Theresa I feel so much more confident, my dates go well past the 3rd date and now I’ve been dating a woman for several months and am so happy and grateful for the valuable support and tools I received. ” Jonathan E.
I finally got off the hamster wheel of online dating and I am so grateful! I’m feeling much happier with myself and my dating life. I used to spend so much time on dating apps. that I felt stuck, like a hamster on a hamster wheel and I couldn’t get off! After coaching with Theresa I now feel that I have the tools I need to be successful on dates. Being a Software Engineer I felt I was lacking some skills in the dating realm. Before coaching with Theresa I often would not get a 2nd date. I’m feeling more confident now after learning some NLP that I tried on a 1st date and my date was excited for a 2nd date and told me that she felt really heard and connected.

“I attended Tree’s Speed Dating event and I loved it! I am not a go getter when it comes to finding dates. I was nervous at the beginning, but after she started the event, I had a lot of fun! I even made three connections which I’m excited about. I’m very grateful that Tree put this workshop together for us single people. “
“Although I was a little nervous at times before and during this event, Tree helped put me at ease. The icebreakers really go the ball rolling for me. The same gender exercise gave me a chance to talk to some of the men and not just focus on my prospective female dates. The speed dating itself was not as hard as I thought it would be, because Tree gave us interesting prompts to inspire the conversations. The closing circle was fantastic because we got to hear from everyone about their experience. All in all it was a great afternoon, and the facility was really nice as well as the snacks. “
After being divorced I was afraid to get out and start dating, but Tree encouraged me to attend one of her singles events. When I arrived, I felt anxious, but that went away very quickly because Tree created such a safe environment for us. I was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly the event was run and how natural the ice-breakers and connecting experiences were. Even more surprising was how I felt like I knew the people so much more at the end of the evening than when I’ve attended other social events. I enjoyed the experience and was very happy to be sharing deeper while snacking at the end of the evening when a woman ask me out on a date (at age 50, it was the first time I had ever been asked out and it felt amazing). While that date never went further, the next event of Tree’s resulted in the same experience and turned into a relationship that is glorious. Tree intuitively knew that my girlfriend and I would be a good match and she was right!
I came to the event because I was looking for like-minded individuals who are open, communicative, and fun natured. I was a little tense before the event and right at the beginning. During the event I became more relaxed. The facilitator put everyone at ease letting us know that we were all there to enjoy the experience and have lighthearted, getting to know each other experiences. After the event I felt really relaxed. I was proud that I had made the effort to get out and meet other people. There were lots of great conversations and laughter and I felt really good afterwards.
Theresa Cretella is facilitating a very important workshop that is essential in these difficult times to help our society transition from a dysfunctional and failing paradigm to an evolving and dynamic one. Human intimacy is a powerful quality, which like love has the potential to transform us all from caterpillars to butterflies if only we, like her, strive to think outside the box. I find her approach similar to the techniques found in the Human Awareness Institute methodology. These are important tools in understanding how the dynamic of our emotional needs plays out in our choices and ways we communicate our needs to one another.
I would recommend that everyone attend one of Tree’s “Getting Real” gatherings. She holds such a sacred, loving, healing space. I felt immediately at ease by her warm, welcoming presence, and that was just the beginning. Thanks to Susan Campbell’s thought-provoking question game and the ensuing authentic, vulnerable sharing, the community came together like butter and went deep. I always felt “at choice” with what to share and free to ask for exactly what I needed. It was a great training ground for the rest of my life.” Hope to see you there sometime!
