"It is never too late to be what you might have been."

I love this quote by George Eliot so much that I included it in my personal statement when I applied to grad school as an older adult student.

My life's journey has been quite the adventure, full of twists and turns. And I've learned that it's never too late to chase your dreams or heal a part of your life.

Whether you're seeking support for yourself or looking to collaborate professionally, I am here to help. My approach is warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental, providing a safe space for exploration and growth.

Together, we can navigate life's challenges, embrace change, and find the inner strength to thrive.

You are not alone, I've got you!

The straight up joy of connecting with people, learning, growing, and engaging with this "one wild and precious life". 


I have a PhD in social psychology, which means I've spent a lot of time studying how people think and feel. But what really opened my eyes was learning about mindfulness and meditation. That's where I discovered how powerful mindfulness can be – it's like having a superpower! I am certified in Mind-body medicine and am a qualified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction instructor. 

My personal and professional journey has led me to specialized in what I call common denominators of being human: grief, aging, body image. Through my training and personal experiences, I have gained valuable insights into the unique challenges and joys that accompany these aspects of life. I am dedicated to supporting people on their paths to well-being and empowerment.

When I'm not diving into the world of psychology and mindfulness, you'll find me getting creative. I'm really into watercolor and acrylic painting, and I love getting lost in the colors and the process. Reading is another passion of mine – I'm always on the lookout for new ideas and perspectives. And there's something wonderfully soothing about knitting, too. It's like meditation with yarn.

I share my life with my husband and our two doggos. They bring a ton of joy and love into our lives. And my friends and family mean the world to me; they remind me of the beauty of connections and relationships.

My superpower is listening deeply, with compassion, curiosity, and genuine interest. 

My passion lies in creating a safe space for curiosity, compassion, and understanding. Whether you're struggling with body image, grieving, or seeking personal growth, I'm here to support you every step of the way.

“Dr. Theresa Skaar has conducted several outstanding trainings for our organization. She spectacularly combined research, and lived experiences and was relatable to our diverse audience of doctoral students. The participants were implementing practices and skills she instilled in them one year later!”
