Teralyn is the best and most understanding person I've talked to. You're extremely lucky to get her if you do!
She seems to follow the adage of “under promise, over deliver.” When I first started, she told me how often she checks her messages, and that it was Monday through Friday. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how many responses I’ve gotten during the “off hours,” including weekends. I’ve never felt once like I was being put on the back burner, or that I was anything less than a client she would see face to face.
She’s also adept at gleaning what’s important from my messages and hitting those high points. And that’s a challenge with me, because I write A LOT, and go on tangents, and find myself venting and forgetting that someone has to read all that. But man, she can cut right through all that and get me the advice I need. She also doesn’t BS me, and when I’m in the wrong about something, she lets me know. Kindly and professionally of course, but she doesn’t let me slide, which is exactly what I need.
Speaking of face to face, the video chat was very productive. She’s relatable, and while the first video chat started a little awkwardly for me, she put me at ease and I was talking her ear off before I knew it.
Long story short, since I’ve typed a bunch of stuff today and a little burned out on it, Teralyn Hobbs is doing an excellent job. High marks across the board and I would recommend her to anyone.
On that note, I was clicking through the questions fairly quickly and the internet where I’m at is a little wonky, so I might have accidentally clicked on an option that wasn’t “Strongly Agree.” So, anyone looking, I meant to give her the highest scores all the way through.
She is phenomenal!
Being able to type my thoughts out right away and have her respond has been an amazing experience.
She is simply amazing.
TerAlyn is an excellent counselor and therapist. She listens to my point of view, challenges my beliefs and supports me when I need it the most. She has also made numerous accommodations to my schedule so we could meet.
Teralyn was an amazing support for me. I wrapped up our sessions feeling empowered and confident that I have everything within me to make the best personal decisions for my life. If you need a sounding board, or someone to help you as you navigate your hard questions, look no further.
I love her! I’ve never had a counselor before, but she’s super amazing and very understanding! She helps me understand my complicated life.
Friendly, helpful and supportive. Teralyn Hobbs come across as caring, kind and professional on your first few meetings.
After some time it feels like you have gained a supportive friend that’ll hear you out. Give you another point of view to look from but always have what best for you in mind.
Amazing therapist, supportive help and now (from what I consider) great friend.
She is absolutely amazing and tells it like it is. I never feel afraid to share how I’m feeling or what I’m going through and she really works with me to get me to a better place.
Teralyn has been a massive support to me over the past couple of months and I’ve felt I can always be open and honest with her. I don’t know how I would have got through the past few months without being able to contact her and share how I’m feeling. I really value Teralyn’s guidance and she has suggested many techniques and ways to help me cope with my problems which have really helped me.
