We will also use the Creative Prescription™ process to help you tap into your inherent ability to be creative, and its potential to heal and enhance the quality of life and health.  When you see your healing as a creative process, you open yourself up to other ways of channeling your pain and suffering, helping to reduce stress and promote healing.

My services may include:

  • The healing benefits of the creative process -- art journaling, intuitive collage, and spontaneous art. I help you focus on the healing process of creating, instead of the finished product. (No previous art experience required)

  • Guided Visualization and Imagination -- I help you see yourself as healthy and vibrant, which is the first step to wellness. Then I guide you to reinforce your aspirations of health, with the use of vision boards and other tools.

  • Heart-centered goal setting -- We set your goals based on how you want to feel (heart) instead of what you want (mind). Heart-centered goals are more effective in motivating you to follow through with your health and wellness plans.

  • Mindset management -- We use techniques from the Creative Prescription® process to help you change old habits of thinking and acting.

  • Mindfulness -- to develop a mindfulness practice to reduce the stress of cancer treatment and enhance well-being.

  • Intuition – tools for increasing self-trust and to tap into your inner knowing to discover the messages and needs of your body for well-being.

Individual Coaching is offered:

  • Over the phone

  • Zoom/ Facetime from anywhere worldwide

  • In-person coaching only in the San Diego area


The intention of health and cancer coaching is not to replace medical treatment or psychotherapy. The purpose of coaching is to support your goals, educate, and enhance your current recovery treatment plan as determined by your medical team.

Annette Tello is the best medicine I’ve taken in my life! Annette is such an open and warm person, trusting her just comes naturally, and trust is the basic foundation of all healing. She uses a powerful combination of skills, and a deeply felt compassion for her clients to look beyond the surface of your difficulties in order to help you discover your inner wisdom. She gently encourages you to accept yourself the way you are and then teaches you how to change your own life.

I have been to several therapists, self-help workshops, and life management courses over the years and I still struggled with several life issues. After working with Annette for just a few sessions, I am finally able to understand why I’ve struggled and what I can do to live a richer and self-directed life. Now I am able to face and accept the smallest and the greatest of challenges in my life with a positive awareness I’ve never before experienced.

Annette is so genuine; you feel her love and compassion every time you talk with her. I highly recommend her services. She is an angel, a gift from the universe, and I am a better person for having worked with her. --- Cheri

Working with Annette allowed me to open up for the first time, to share my emotional struggles, and to get help with this monster called “cancer.” I was able to share my darkest and scariest fears with Annette because she helps me to feel at ease as I unburdened myself. Annette answered all my questions and made sure I was educated about the various treatments and surgeries. She also helped me to prepare for all the things that come after treatment. I am so informed now; I am stronger and better prepared for the journey ahead of me. Cancer is not so scary when you have someone supporting you and guiding you. I recommend her to anyone going through cancer treatment. I am so grateful for Annette; she has a big heart and a wonderful personality. ---Ann
