The psychotherapeutic relationship is unique and remarkable in a number of ways. Talking to another person about oneself requires a measure of vulnerability. That can be scary, no doubt! But it also affords the opportunity to open some previously closed-off and darkened spaces and to loosen what have become uncomfortably tight knots in your day-to-day experience of living. I am a firm believer that in any individual therapy session there are two experts in the room (whether that room is virtual or actual). I have certain expertise and experience--particularly as a listener and professional-perspective-taker--that I will bring to the table. But you are and will remain the expert on you and your experience. I will ask that you allow me the honor of learning about and from you. I will ask you to talk about yourself and your world as you understand it--without judgment. That is to say, I will suspend my judgment AND that I will relentlessly encourage you to do the same! In the process of teaching me about your life--its struggles and its successes--it is likely that you will surprise yourself from time to time with the things you hear yourself say. Surprise, like vulnerability, can be frightening, but both bring about courage and hope for change.

Wow, just amazing. Dr. Teague's expertise is unmatched, he listens to me and makes me feel valid while offering great questions to challenge personal growth. He is very compassionate, gentle and calming, especially if you have more of an aggressive inner circle or family. He is attentive during the entire session and remembers details about you and knows what issues you are struggling with and tailors his service to you. By far one of the best. I am so glad I matched with him here.

Dr. Teague is very insightful and encourages you to interact with him in the ways that YOU want to interact. Very helpful in letting me talk things out, and then giving insight that helps me unpack what I’m thinking about. It’s a very causal conversation during our sessions, that makes me feel at ease. I would surely recommend him!
