Hi, my name is Teresa Adams and I am passionate about marriage, family, relationships and the problems surrounding them. I am a graduate from Mississippi University for Women, with a B.S. in Food and Nutrition and a M.A. from Reformed Theological Seminary in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have been in the relationship field for over 20 years and have been a professional in the field for 10 years. I am Gottman I Certified, Prepare/Enrich Assessment Certified and SYMBIS Assessment Certified as well. I have been through me continuing education trainings in anxiety, depression, stress, conflict, communication, sexual issues and many more. In addition, my husband and I have written a marriage manual/book entitled Marriage: What To Do Before and After You Say, "I Do". When anxiety, depression and stress comes into the relationship/family, a feeling of uncertainty and hopeless erodes the mind. I want to help you eliminate the anxiety, depression, and stress in your relationship/family so life is manageable and peaceful. As a Christian counselor, with Biblical training, the answer to your problem is within your grasp.
I have been married for 32 years and have raised four children. I believe the family is the fabric of your society and without the family our society is in deep trouble. Many issues have come to me and I am not afraid to ask the hard questions to help you through a difficult time. As a wife, mother, and counselor, I am caring, compassionate and warm in my delivery to my client. I am not judgmental and nothing surprises me. I can help!!

Teresa is very professional, compassionate, knowledgeable, has a good understanding of a complex situation, very good listener and empathy.
The first time I used BetterHelp, Teresa was a breath of fresh air that I seriously needed when navigating a rough patch in my life. She offers more objective advice on what to do/not do when life hits the fan, and she gave me effective coping mechanisms for taking care of myself.
Teresa was very helpful with my difficulties and she was able to guide my thoughts towards a more positive light. I’m very lucky to have met her.
Teresa, was very supportive and helpful. Very professional and experienced. As a Christian, I found her wisdom and non judgment wonderful. God bless you Teresa.
Teresa is an excellent therapist I can't recommend anyone better... Which is why I have chosen to come back to her.... She listens well all the qualities you look in a therapist. It has helped me open to her and easy to talk to... I have manged to work through exercises which has helped me and see things in healthier way.
Teresa has been professional, but warm and friendly and provided a safe environment for me to be open
Working with Teresa was a wonderful experience. She's very kind, warm, supportive, understanding, and respectful. In each session that I had with her, I tried her advice and I could observe changes in my life for the better and my wellbeing level increased. After a few sessions, I already began to feel that she's like a very close friend. I would highly recommend her to anyone who would like to have a kind therapist!
Teresa is great. The advice that she's given has been really helpful for dealing with a turbulent relationship. She was a pleasure to speak with on a weekly basis.
Teresa is great.
Only on my second session and I have already seen improvements in my mental state.
Very understanding and personable. She helped me create a good foundation to learn how to cope and heal from my past traumas/ abusive relationship.
Teresa Adams has been a great help in my recovery from my husband death. She gave me some information to get group counselling. Great listener and gives excellent advise. If I come back I would defiantly ask for Teresa.
Very good counselor. She asks the right questions! Teresa is direct but respectful and I value my sessions with her!
I am pleased to have met Teresa and we seem to gel along well. She is a positive person and I have felt that the suggestions that she has made were good and I have followed them. I feel I can express myself and my worries to her and am happy with her approach to my problems
She helped me greatly back in 2018 and I’m back for more!
She fantastic. I highly recommend.
I was starting to feel really overwhelmed by a plethora of different circumstances in my life, Teresa was a great help. She is calm and listened to what I was going through. Teresa helped me organize my thoughts and I’m very grateful.
Teresa has been such a good listening ear and knows the right balance of guiding with good questions and listening when I just need to unload. I have had some bad experiences with counselors in the past and I'm so thankful to have found someone who really gets me and helps me be content in who I am now while still growing into who I want to be.
Speaking to to Teresa has helped me in such a short amount of time. From our first session she just made me feel so comfortable and I opened up with ease. She is able to give me perspective on situations from a positive new angle. I look forward to speaking to her every week!
Ms. Teresa has always understood my problems and provided me with a suitable suggestion to overcome it.
Teresa has been supportive helpful and constructive with us during the last five months. We like working with her and respect her advice and encouragement.
Teresa is a great listener. Patient, kind and completely non-judgmental. She gives the absolute best advice and helped with my anxiety, overthinking and people-pleasing tendencies.
Teresa has helped me so much with my life all while being half way across the world. She’s very good in giving a Christians perspective and others the best help for those who need life changing guidance.
Teresa is easy to talk to, a great listener, and really takes time to understand what my needs are.
She responds to my journal entries every day, really gives me individualized help, and has taken the time to get to know me and my needs. It's so good having her to talk to!
Teresa has such a soothing voice and she‘s a great listener. She always offers ideas to help with situations or feelings I‘m dealing with. I love about her that whole she‘s listening and trying to help, she also talks about herself and similar experiences. That makes me feel like I‘m not alone with my feelings and other people go through the same things I go through, even counselors. She‘s a very sweet woman and she has that mother aura around her, which makes it even more comfortable to talk to her. I always feel like I‘m talking to my aunt, that‘s the kind of trust level she‘s already established after only several weeks of communicating with her.
She's knowledgeable, empathetic, and doesn't give pat answers.
Teresa always gives sensible and wise advice. She's supportive and also welcoming, warm and feels familiar which added to her wide knowledge is an enormous benefit.
Teresa is so assuring I always feel that I can cope better after talking with her our conversations has been a big help in my healing journey
So far we've only had two sessions. I have enjoyed them but I am anxious to learn more.
I have experienced many difficult situations in the last year and being able to speak to someone who is not connected to the issues was very helpful. I believe Teresa Adams was instrumental in the decisions that I was making. Mrs. Adams is a wonderful counselor/therapist. She is kind and I believe she really cared about the issues I am facing. She gave educated responses to difficult problems.
Excellent at listening to what I have to say and then asking to find out what I need to realize.
Teresa is very supportive and provides tools to help improve your outlook on life. She also helps to ground me whenever I have irrational thoughts.
Teresa was fantastic! She helped me see a way through to a solution to help me with my anxiety that I was unable to see at the time.
Teresa is very compassionate and listens to me. I would recommend her to anyone needing to talk out their feelings.
Teresa has been a great listening ear when I needed it the most. She has remained neutral to my issues, and ultimately gives me a bit of comfort in letting me know that I've got a firmer grasp on life and its issues than I previously believed.
Teresa is insightful and professional in manner. Her advice is very helpful and I always feel happier after talking with her. She’s a wonderful counsellor!
Teresa was always prompt and attentive. Did a thorough job or really trying to understand me.
Mrs. Adams is a thoughtful counselor who truly listens to her patients. She helps you see your situaton differently. I highly recommend her.
Talking to Teresa helps clear cluttered thoughts in my mind. She has the ability to talk sense and logic into you in the most gentle and supportive way. I simply love communicating with her.
I love her understanding of my concerns.
Teresa is the type of councilor with whom one can really let you hair down and shoulders soften. A good listener with a gift for deep understanding. A real gem!
Thank you for your kindness and patience and your ability to listen and make me dig deep to understand myself.
She is wonderful! She makes me feel so much better.
Teresa has given me both sides of my own argument, which is what I'd hoped for. I doubt that face to face would be much more beneficial in my case & I'm very pleased to have found this online service. While I remain in two minds about my own issues, both of those minds are glad to be here.
Teresa’s care for her clients is so prevalent. She responds to my text at all times of day. She stays with me through text as I am sometimes struggling and walks me through the situation until I feel better. She does not judge but shows understanding no matter where I’m at or what I’ve done. It has been a huge blessing for me to have Teresa as my counselor.
After not being able to connect with my first councillor, I viewed a few profiles and chose Teresa. Can I just say she’s amazing. She has such a nice homely comfort vibe when you speak to her. I end up expressing all my concerns and waddling on to her because of how comfortable I feel. She shares her wisdom from her life experience and also her own expertise. She’s an amazing listener, great advice giver and her main focus is always YOU and how you can make yourself more happy as well as giving tips on how to solve the problems you’re encountering. She does not give false hope, where she feels a situation cannot necessarily be resolved straight away she will say ‘ this may take time but here’s what you can do meanwhile to focus on yourself and also ease the situation’. Whenever I would have problems she would reply within hours while the situation is still occurring and her advice would give me reassurance and will power to keep going forward and not have low self esteem. It’s amazing how it flips the situation and makes a big problem seem lighter.
Thanks Teresa you’re ace!
Teresa is a very supportive counsellor with great advice. She has been extremely accommodating in working around time especially when I have had to cancel last minute. As soon as I started counselling with Teresa I felt comfortable and at ease.
I have only had two sessions with Teresa, but they have been life changing for me because I feel no judgement and she gives good advice.
I was very happy to be matched with Teresa, after changing counselors once. I met her after a difficult time when my ex-husband died. I felt lost and really didn’t want to burden my friends, family and current partner with my grief. Teresa was there for me; always messaged back promptly and took the initiative to set up video sessions. I didn’t feel I was bothering her and she always gave me a long time to talk each week. Teresa really listened, took notes, and reviewed our past sessions and my history when appropriate. She sent me relaxation techniques and targets to meet as well. It was really an honor to meet Teresa, as my counselor and someone who I can trust and confide in. Thank you so much for your time, Teresa. I very much recommend Teresa Adams as a counselor to anyone with suffers from any kind of anxiety, stress or loneliness.
Teresa Adam’s counselling helped me a lot.
I have had 2 sessions with Ms. Adams, She made me feel very comfortable talking to her. It was easy for me to open up to her. She really helped me figure out what aspects of my life to focus on, and got me started with it.
Thank you Ms. Adams!
I have had two sessions with Teresa and I feel like I have already taken a couple of steps forward in dealing with my depression. She is very supportive and kind, and does her best to understand my point of view and help me counter my negative thoughts.
Teresa has been such a great listener! I feel at ease to talk about anything. That's precious! She magically brings in the right question or worksheet that I need to figure out what's going on or get going. I highly recommend Teresa Adams and BetterHelp!
Teresa is an excellent listener, and she's the best counselor I've ever had. I think she's very professional and knowledgeable, and she tries to understand everything I was telling her. I feel really lucky to have had her as a counselor!
Teresa was a treasure. I had a few sessions with her on my depression and I immediately felt the difference. She is so positive, as she says also "nothing surprises her", so she knows best what advice to offer. I'm so thankful!
Teresa was great. She helped me work through my anxiety for 2 months and i felt much better speaking to someone who was listening to me and giving me advice. I could message her as well anytime if I felt like i needed to speak to someone.
Mrs. Adams was so sweet during our live chats. She understood me and help me sort things out. She also pushed me to be better for myself. I really enjoyed talking to her.
I have enjoyed our conversations, the prayers, and sound advice! She has truly been a blessing to me during my difficult times.
Teresa Adams?! A great listener and adviser. A very positive and inspiring person reflected even through writings. It is like a light in the end of the tunnel for me.
I love taking to Teresa, she is great!
Teresa is awesome. She provides practical steps for your problems.
Mrs. Teresa Adams is very professional. I was very pleased with our initial session and I am looking forward to our next session.
Teresa has been very helpful, in my process of overcoming sadness and extreme fear, in a week of counseling she gave me some advices that made me feel much better, I totally recommend her.
Teresa, has been extremely helpful and understanding of our situation and continues to work with us to help us find the answers and solutions we need. Her patience and empathy should be commended. I can't say enough about how appreciative we are for her help.
Teresa Adams is wonderful. She helped me process my thoughts and guided me through a difficult time. She reminded me of my worth and made me feel that I am special. I wanted to thank her personally. So to Mrs. Teresa Adams, thank you so much.
