Teresa Martin RN, MS, AMFT
Women’s Health and Hospice Nurse, Associate Therapist, and Author of poetry and prose
Teresa Martin is a Women’s Health and Hospice Nurse, Associate Therapist, and Author of poetry and prose. She gives you what she has — her story. Teresa is dedicated to the experiences of women, their health, and how their stories transform the world.
Her recent publication Fly with Me: One Woman’s Leap into a Life of Love and Joy, reflects what Teresa desperately needed to discover during a period of darkness in her life: What does it really look like and feel like, to change your life? She didn’t want anecdotes – she wanted the real feelings, the real answers. What she found was a process that worked for her to change her life and leap into a life of love and joy. She gives you her gift of vulnerability on each page, so that you may become more comfortable with your own. So that you too, may leap into your life of love and joy.
Teresa’s past work has been published by the American Psychological Association’s Magination Press, Cambridge University Press, BraughlerBooks, and Cordella Magazine. Excerpts from Fly with Me have been reprinted by the American Nurses Association of California, the American Nurses Association’s HealthyNurse HealthyNation, and Nurse.org. She has been featured in podcasts, performed poetry readings for audiences near and far, and loves to make bookclub appearances to share in the journey to joy.
Teresa currently lives in Los Angeles with her partner of over thirty years, two young adult children, their beloved dog Harley and of course lots of boards and books. She is always up for joining the ladies to surf gentle waves or fine-tune a good tale over a strong cup of coffee. Her next adventures include a comedic tale co-authored with Dishongh Scavo Barte about care-giving, called Gertie’s Guide (2022). She’s also putting together the trip of a lifetime to the Himalayas to live and learn with the Kung Fu Nuns.
