Dr. Theresa Nicassio is an ordinary woman whose life path as a Registered Psychologist (#1541) beginning in the mid-1980’s and later as a special needs mom took a horrific turn when her health took an unexpected nose-dive after the birth of her daughter in 1997. Her greatest fear was that her daughters would be left motherless before they graduated high school.
Offering simple solutions to the “ache” that so many feel about their health, relationships, and the future of the planet, Theresa uses her integrated personal and professional knowledge to provide hope in the face of despair, helping those she serves heal from the inside-out.
"YUM is a MASTERPIECE" Dr Sandra Cabot
