Please tell us about YOU, your family and your work. What you are “on fire” about?

I am a psychotherapist and transformation expert. Seventeen years ago, I happily married my amazing husband, Victor Juhasz, and helped raise three sons, who were teenagers at the time.

I am on fire about teaching women how to “Kick the Crap” out of their fear mind (or Mafia Mind, as I like to call it) so they can create a life and career that thrills them. I am also on fire about being a grandma. I am so grateful for the hidden benefits of a blended family—“Look Ma, no stretch marks!” 🙂

How did you originally connect to Women on Fire?

I met Debbie Phillips in a restaurant in New York City and at first resisted talking to her because I had seen 18 therapy clients that day. But as you know, she is irresistible! We started talking and have never stopped.

What’s your favorite component of the Women on Fire membership?

I love connecting with other Women on Fire members and supporting their plans for positive world domination.

What’s your favorite part of the day?

Morning meditation with my husband, Vic.

What is the last book you read that you would recommend to other Women on Fire?

Desire Map, by my pal Danielle Laporte.

What is the one thing you’re most proud of?

Raising amazing sons, who make me proud on a daily basis. They are all so decent, talented and kind. There’s nothing better.

If you had an unexpected free day, how would you spend it?  

Wake up, meditate, do energy work, work out, get a massage, eat a great meal or two, and maybe binge watch my current throw-back guilty pleasure, Alias with Jennifer Garner on Netflix.

What is your favorite city in the world?

New York City.

Share a special Women on Fire moment or experience.

I loved introducing one of my closest friends, Lara Licharowicz, to Women on Fire, and watching her transform her life through the connections she made with this amazing group (both business and personal).

Name another Women on Fire member who has inspired you and tell why.

Lara Licharowicz, because she is successful, smart, incredibly talented and so generous. I feel blessed to know her and share her with Women on Fire.

What’s your big dream?

To use my platform to transform as many lives as possible in my time on planet Earth.

If you had the opportunity to teach a child one strategy that would help guide her life, what would that be?

To be mindful that, most of the time, fear is just a feeling. Use fear to inform your decisions rather than to dominate them.

What is something that we might be surprised to learn about you?

I used to run a talent agency before I became a psychotherapist/coach.

Name three women who have influenced your life, and tell what you’ve learned from each.

Kris Carr (  Kris taught me the importance of eating clean and green juicing to maintain my health.

Danielle Laporte:  Danielle taught me to be true to myself. Years ago, she said to me, “Terri, you need to write about what you know. Speak your truth and it will resonate.”

Debbie Phillips:  Debbie taught me to believe in myself and to charge what I am worth! (Thanks, Deb! <3)

Who cheers you on?

My mom, Jan and my husband, Vic.

What is your favorite “pig-out” food?

Nicoletta’s gluten-free pizza, extra crispy.

What are the top three songs on your iPod right now?

Love Will Come to You by Indigo Girls

Piano by Ariana Grande

Where I Stood by Missy Higgins 

What is the biggest challenge you’ve ever faced and how did you overcome it?

Alcohol addiction. Cancer. Raising three angry teenagers. Being held up at gunpoint. It is hard to choose which was the biggest challenge, but I overcame all of them the same way: by never giving up; seeking help; having faith; leaning on friends, family, and my husband; and searching for higher learning.

What is your go-to self-care strategy?


When you reflect on your life so far, what are the first words that come to your mind?

Gratitude and joy.
