About Me

Reaching out and trying to find a therapist can be one of the hardest things to do when you are feeling in chaos and in crisis. Once you take that first step, it gets easier and progressively easier. Feeling like someone is actually listening to you and focusing on you is so important, especially now days. As a therapist, I focus on each person’s specific needs and I adjust my style accordingly. I tend to draw from solution focused, strengths based and cognitive behavioral areas in order to help folks problem solve things that are going on currently and in the past. This has worked well for my client’s and outcomes have been positive.

I will strive to help you feel comfortable and safe from judgement and censure. Together I feel we can work on goals you want to achieve that will help you feel more confident, motivated and self-aware. I have over 10 years of clinical experience. I have been privileged to have worked in hospitals, outpatient clinics, and community teams providing therapy in homes, as well as private practice. I have a large amount of experience with relationship difficulties, stress, anxiety, mood disorders, ADHD, Autism, PTSD, parenting, grief/loss and medical changes. I obtained my Masters of Science in Social Work from University of Texas at Austin. I feel very strongly about quality therapy being provided for clients, so I obtained higher clinical training and acquired my license to supervise others in my field who also want to provide therapy and help people.

Being accepted and understood is what most people want and need. It would be a privilege to be present with you and provide that safe non-judgmental space so you are able to process and grow from the challenges life has thrown your way. In terms of availability, I check and respond to messages at least twice daily, seven days a week. I offer live chat, phone sessions and occasional video sessions weekly, mostly between the hours of 8am and 6pm on select days of the week. I also offer a few live chat sessions each week in the later evening hours or on the weekends depending on needs.

She’s amazing! I’ve been seeing her for over 5 years now and she’s changed my life! I’ve learned that I’m able to live and cope with having BPD. It’s not the life sentence that I thought it would be. Thank you for saving my life Teresa.

Written on Aug 23, 2022 after therapy with Teresa for 1 year on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

I've been working with Teresa for nearly a year now - through many different and challenging situations and life events. Teresa meets me where I'm at, listens well, helps keep me accountable, and gives me practical steps I can take to improve my life. She gives the gentle but firm push that I often need to keep going or change my approach, while never neglecting my humanity and need for encouragement and love. She has been a safe place for me to be honest and is everything I would want and expect in a counselor.

I have been working with Teresa for only a short while now, but so far she really has held true to the idea that I can tell her anything. I have had many counselors in the past, and she has been the only one so far who I actually felt like I could say anything to. I feel like my progress is important to her, and that I am truly listened to.

Written on May 08, 2019 after therapy with Teresa for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

She is phenomenal. My only expectation coming into this was just need some one to listen when I talk about what I am going through!
Guess what? Teresa went beyond my expectations and helped me as a genuine friend. I was able to put my perspective out and take her advice. Just imagine, I come from a different world, culture from where she came from but still she was compassionate and no problems in understanding what I am going through. I would recommend her to anyone who needs this.
Most people need someone like Teresa to listen to and want to help or concerned genuinely.

I have to say if I was religious she would be considered a “godsend,” because she really helped me as a person to help me through my personal obstacles and journey, it’s a pleasure to find a good therapist and even better when you have no doubts about the choice. I’m happy I stumbled across Mrs. Adcock and I look forward to continue receiving her help and assurance and advice.
