Theresa Harp, M.A., CCC-SLP, LSLS Cert. AVT is a certified speech-language pathologist and time management coach for busy SLPs. Shortly after establishing her private practice in 2014, she had her first children—twins—and began to experience that all-too-familiar struggle of juggling work life and home life. 

Fast forward four years (and two more kids) later, her growing interest in time management strategies led her to establish Theresa Harp Coaching, a coaching practice that supports other busy SLPs with how to manage their time—and their mindset—in their home and business. 

Theresa helps her clients become more aware of how their thoughts and values drive the way they spend their time. Theresa’s experience as a speech pathologist, busy mom, and private practice owner makes her the perfect coach for other women who are looking to regain control of their time so they can build a life they love.
