Welcome to Author Teena L. Harris

Brief Synopsis of My Book Series

 My book series is about healing from “toxic relationships” romantic or platonic, and building healthier relationships with self & others. The book series has clinical evidenced based practices to assist one in their change process, as toxic relationships can be traumatizing, and devastating. Please do not allow the title to deceive you, as it is a syndrome that I coined. I do not support inappropriate sexual misconduct in any fashion, form, or shape. Enjoy the ride!

I Am Available for Speaking Engagements

I am a Woman after God’s own heart & having a personal relationship with God is important to me. It is equally important to have balanced theology, and truly understand the difference between religion, and spirituality. I have been spiritually trained in the Kingdom of God, and I have provided spiritual coaching and counseling to those that sought, and seek, to enhance their spiritual growth. I highly value

confidentiality, and I strongly believe in people having a “safe place” to heal. I do not support unethical actions of any kind.    


I am a humanitarian with a sense of humor and I speak my mind, but it all comes from a place of love. I love music, I enjoy cooking, I love to dance, and I love fashion.


I Am Available For Speaking Engagements! I have been blessed to travel & speak in various States sharing my experiences & teaching on life lessons for over 18 years. If you would like to book me for a speaking engagement please contact one of the ladies featured below
