About Me

Everyone desires to be healthy, happy, and whole. If you are expecting a result, envisioning an answer, or seeking a resolution for your challenges, you may simply need an idea regarding how to address them. You may even wonder if a solution exists for your situation. Be assured, there are no real limits when you pursue a path that leads to living your best life ever. In fact, it is your time! One choice - among others – is to "make a life change that will change your life". Pause and picture this, You at your very best. This is not so far removed from your grasp!

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who holds a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy. I practice as a cognitive behavioral therapist. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that is active, collaborative, goal-oriented and is based on the cognitive model. That means we will work together to understand the role that our thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors play in our current struggles. In addition to support and insight, CBT offers clients specific strategies, skills and tools that you can use to make changes, relieve suffering, and achieve your goals.

I can help you make discoveries and establish connections, as you find yourself along the way. By maximizing the use of thought processing and development, in a cognitive manner, healing and happiness can begin. These great experiences can also continue. Therapeutic practices have always offered this type of comfort, while prompting the presence of joy.

You deserve to reach your goals. It is possible to overcome your current difficulties, if any exist. It is a perfect time, to take the time, and find lasting joy. I am compassionate about assisting others in exploring possibilities, utilizing abilities and finding optimal resolutions in the most satisfying ways. Therapy provides the tools to empower healthy living.

I instantly clicked with Mary. I liked her and didn’t really want to. But I just could not help myself. I took her as very sincere and caring. Great at stimulating conversation and listening . Very happy with Mary so far. So is Mr. Paula!

Sessions with Mary are life changing. If you are looking for self-improvement, introspection. reflection, and development of disciplines for empowerment and resiliency, Mary is the right person. I worked with Mary over a 2 year period and multiple life transitions. I no longer describe myself as overwhelmed by life. I am now equipped with the tools I need to face my future plans and uncertainties.

Mary's counseling has been crucial in the strides I've made this year. I've been given strategies that have helped me work towards my goals and greater growth. She is very supportive; not only does she build you up, but Mary helps you build yourself up as well.

Written by J.U. on Jan 26, 2021 after therapy with Mary for 9 months on issues concerning depression, addictions, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

I was hesitant at first to talk to a therapist, because I’ve had friends that have had bad therapists and councilors, but I’ve come to see Mary Teal as more of a friend and confidant than anything else. I wouldn’t be where I am right now without her help, without a doubt
