Teresa studied through Berean Bible College and has worked in health care for many years. When Teresa is not at work, she enjoys running, biking, hiking, reading, solving puzzles, snow skiing, lifting weights, and cooking (please feel free to bring your favorite recipe to session).
Teresa’s position is that of a “wounded healer,” which means she counsels from a place of healing and transformation she personally experienced from Jesus. She sees it as an honor and privilege to help those who are hurting and walk with them as God transforms the pain into something meaningful.
Teresa knows it takes a great deal of courage to ask someone for help. She emphasizes genuineness, unconditional positive regard, and empathy in each session. The most effective therapeutic work happens without judgment, with complete acceptance, and curiosity. She is passionate about working with individuals who are struggling with issues that are interfering with functional living. She is excited to be part of your mental health journey, and will strive to give you her earnest attention to help you navigate through life choices and find effective solutions.
Teresa customizes counseling interventions, techniques, and procedures to meet each client and to treat specific issues. She knows and respects each client as the expert of his/her lived experiences and invites each client to explore possible experiences that may be hindering him/her from living his/her best life.
Teresa works with individuals in the area of depression, anxiety, low-self-esteem, anger, trauma recovery, and many other issues, in one-on-one sessions.
When confronted with life challenges and hardships, we find ourselves feeling alone and isolated and it can be difficult to reach out for help. If this is you please feel free to contact Teresa.
