Guiding stressed out people pleasers to fully align with your inner knowing to optimize mental, emotional and physical well being.

Great human beings display empathy, self-awareness and resilience. They take charge and do the difficult thing even though it may not be the popular thing to do. It’s about being true to yourself and your values.

Great humans also trust their inner knowing and leverage it to make difficult decisions with confidence. They understand the importance of slowing down in order to speed up so they become more effective.

I am Teresa Lodato, the founder of Becoming Aware®. As a result of working with me clients learn to fully trust themselves and understand the science behind why it is so important that they do. Providing the tools and techniques you need to overcome upper limits and embrace your inner knowing so you become more effective in your personal and professional life is what Becoming Aware® is all about. 

My Story

  Throughout my career I rose to leadership roles, overcoming many challenges all by trusting my inner knowing. Teaching my clients how to do this has been one of the most rewarding things I get to do in my life!  By leveraging cutting edge research in Neuroscience and combining it with Psychology I bridge the world of logic and insight so you begin getting results you only dream of achieving. My rock bottom moment  was a devastating  illness which brought my 20+ year career in financial services and marriage to an end.  Don’t let tragedy be your wake up call as well. 

Early in my career I had very fixed ideas about what being a leader and human being meant as well as how to position myself in certain roles and relationships.  What I learned after becoming very ill is that there is a way to be successful in life without burning bridges or burning myself out.  If you think that overworking and destroying your personal relationships is the way for you to make it to the top, I invite you to contemplate the possibility there might be a better way.

Forward thinking organizations expect and support their employees to put life first and work second.  This falls along the continuum of valuing each employee, honoring unique gifts and strengths while supporting the mission of the organization.  It is a holistic view recognizing that relationships are the real work of work and happy employees are willing to do more, provide higher value, have increased creativity, provide greater impact, get better results with less effort and experience more fulfillment overall.  By learning to trust yourself fully, you tap into ways to connect and communicate so you make the most of every opportunity that comes your way!


Happy Employees = Successful Organizations & Better Quality of Life


After I burned out from my financial services career and reclaimed myself after a toxic marriage, I spent a lot of time exploring and getting educated to increase self awareness which allowed me to reset and experience a life of purpose and fulfillment.  It was a long road made even longer by my inability to release what no longer served me.  When I finally learned to let go and began to really trust myself again, everything fell into place. I am now doing work I am passionate about, working with clients I love and am realizing a healthy work/life integration that would make my younger self green with envy!  A large part in my learning was studying graduate level psychology and neuroscience; exploring insights to discover healing, happiness and wholeness for myself, as well as recognizing the importance of balancing relationships in my life overall.  


Some things I learned:


All growth takes commitment.

At times the journey to self awareness is uncomfortable.

There is incredible power in uncovering, clarifying and polishing the uniqueness of you.

It is vital that you align with your inner gifts.

The importance of being authentic.

I am worthy (and you are worthy too).

Learning to trust yourself allows you to trust others and capitalize on opportunities in life.


What would it be like for you to be empowered in your life and in all of your relationships? Imagine feeling energized, confident and capable of using your strengths to make a positive impact and achieve your goals.  Want to learn how? Schedule a time below and let’s make it a reality!

Success Stories

I was in a big transitional period of my life when I reached out to Teresa. I lost my husband of 20 years after a long battle with cancer. I was exhausted, feeling overwhelmed and unable to make decisions on my own. As a result of my coaching with Teresa, I re-ignited the passions in my life and took action. I now trust my inner knowing and wisdom. I am able to set goals that challenge me and draw strength and power from within, tapping into innate wisdom and gifts I didn’t know I had in me.

For anyone thinking about working with Teresa and wondering what they may gain from the experience, I would say that the sky’s the limit. Make an investment in yourself and be rewarded by working with a true mentor and coach who will help you overcome any challenge and learn for yourself the answers you seek.

Going into the Becoming Aware course I really had no idea what to expect. I was, as many others, a little out of sorts with the world around me because of the COVID 19 virus and its unknowingness. As the weeks progressed I was learning so many valuable tools to cope with my life that I couldn’t wait until “Monday” rolled around so I could get on the conference call and learn even more about myself. It was an 8 week marathon that flew by. I laughed & cried. But in the end it left me with much more hope and peace than I could have ever imagined, along with some wonderful tools to incorporate in my life’s journey.

I would recommend classes of this type with Teresa to anyone who may feel a little lost in this big world for this is merely the tip of the iceberg.
