About Me

Hello, my name is Teral. I am a licensed mental health counselor with 12 years of experience helping people through some of life's most challenging moments. While I am a professional in my field, I recognize that you are the expert on you. My desire is to work with you to develop and meet your goals by first actively building the level of trust through active listening, unconditional positive regard, in a compassionate, supportive, and safe space. I am here to genuinely as well as strategically provide you with hope and way to move forward, when you may feel stuck. Especially, during those times when you are feeling loss, with no answers, or life seems more than you can handle. I am here for you. I am here to help you process feelings of anger, hurt, frustration, loneliness, insecurity, disappointment, shame or sadness. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges. I also have experience in Child Welfare working with children as well as adults with a history of physical trauma or emotional abuse (foster care, adoption). Even as an adult I have experienced personal trauma and understand that everyone responds differently and needs an individual approach to their healing journey.

My professional experience is working as a Mental Health as well as a Marriage and Family therapist. As a professional in my field I provide psychotherapy to adults, children/adolescents, couples as well as the family unit. I use evidenced based therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Structural Family therapy (SFT), Family Systems Therapy (FST), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) among others. I am able to use different approaches as well as combining approaches as needed to serve you as an individual. I am very open, relaxed, easy going which has served me well while working with a multitude of people from diverse backgrounds and different stages of life.

What sets me apart?

Simply because, "I love what I do!" Being a therapist is more than just a career choice for me. It is much deeper. It reflects a core part of me that enjoys getting to know people on a deeper and real level without judgment. I am ready engage and reach out to you throughout the week if needed. I can help guide you through those personal challenges, help ease emotional burdens, and empower you to achieve a healthier mindset. With this new mindset, I feel you will be able to achieve new ways to live in both your professional and personal life.

She has a very warm and strong presence which makes me hopeful that I can become a better person. I waited years to join therapy because I was scared but Teral helps make this journey worth it

I think she is great, however she is late sometimes and that does bother me. I know it's probably from other sessions but I do this before works so sometimes I just get stressed about the timing. Overall though my experience with her is really good and I respect her a lot.

Written by A.L. on Sep 19, 2022 after therapy with Teral for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

The sessions I have with Teral are so incredibly helpful. I’ve always been scared of therapy but she has made this process so easy. From the first session, I immediately felt so comfortable speaking to her. She puts things into perspective for me that really helps me understand my feelings and experiences better. She’s so kind, empathetic, and attentive. I’m only 3 sessions in, but I’m so excited to continue my healing journey with her! I look forward to talking to her each week and I always leave our sessions feeling lighter and a better outlook on my situation. I even take notes from our sessions because her perspective on things is just so insightful!

Written by D.E. on Jun 08, 2022 after therapy with Teral for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, coping with life changes, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

I have been in therapy with Teral for the almost 3 months. From day 1, I felt quite comfortable with her. She provides a safe space for me to open up and be vulnerable. She is very understanding and she provides good and relevant counsel for my various situations.
What I do admire about Teral is that she takes her time and tries not to rush you and she allows you to share what you want to and not push you to say what you are not ready to share. In other words, she journey's with you.
She encourages me to write, something that I don't usually do a lot; but I am still a working progress.

I have had two live sessions with Mrs. Williams and so far they have been very beneficial. I truly appreciate her supportive nature. Not only is she understanding, but she offers useful/positive tools to help me deal with any stress or anxiety. I also enjoy the way she provides helpful analogies to help me understand what she is talking about.

Work with me!
