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.

Mary is great, and she is one of the best I have worked with so far. She is honest and responsive, attends to my needs, and provides professional and constructive suggestions. If not due to the restrictions of the law, I would like to work with her for a longer term.

Written on Sep 20, 2022 after therapy with Mary for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and career difficulties

Honestly Marry Teal has been helping me these past few weeks, I’ve been less angry, hasn’t been in a verbal fight for weeks, I’ve been happier and more motivated to aproach people and even try helping others strive !

Written on Sep 19, 2022 after therapy with Mary for 2 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, and self esteem

I often tell Mary “your words wash over me like healing water and make me feel peaceful.” I love how she takes a situation I struggled with like someone not keeping their word and she sees the whole situation, puts herself in my shoes, gives understanding of how it could have been hard for me, and gives perspective; also a gentle challenge like “well, could the other person have thought this or that?” and helps me see things differently if needed. She encourages positivity but doesn’t constantly hound me to “be positive be positive “. She’s been very encouraging.

No matter the time of day or circumstance, Mary has been there when I needed help. She’s completely engaged during live chats and offers alternative ways of thinking that I haven’t yet explored. Her guidance has brought so much more happiness and awareness to my home.

Written on Aug 30, 2022 after therapy with Mary for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Working with Mary Teal has been an amazing experience! When I first started I had just gone through a series of crises in my life and she was there to guide me. Without the work that she asked me to do I’m not sure how far I would’ve gotten but I have reached a place of stability and self reliability. Highly recommended!

Mary is amazing. Her kindness, attention to detail, and willingness to care are remarkable. Her tools really do work. I feel my very best and most hopeful after speaking to her. She is the best therapist I've ever had. I've made more progress on 3 months with her then I had in my whole life with a plethora of other professionals. If you have the choice to have her as your therapist please do yourself a favor and pick her!!!

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.

Written 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
