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.

Teresa is awesome, very patient, practical, and kind!
Teresa has been a great support for me, I feel like she understands me, listens to me and gives thoughtful and helpful responses to the things I talk with her about. I feel like I have quickly been able to make good steps toward the goals that I had for myself when I started counseling.
She's amazing. She's gone above and beyond for me when helping me with my illness. I am thankful that I found a good fit for a therapist.
Teresa is quick to respond with insightful answers. She has been encouraging, honest, and helpful.
For the first time in the 10 years that I have tried counseling, I feel I have found a counselor who understands me and talks to my on my level instead of like a child. I have recommended BetterHelp to all my friends who are going through a hard time, as it is affordable, easily accessible and convenient.
She’s a great counselor! Even after exchanging a few text messages I felt as if she knew me. Very intuitive and cares a lot about my well being.
She’s awesome and I’ve liked her from her first message!
She has been very helpful. She created a non-judgemental space for me. So important.
Teresa has really helped me overcome issues and has been very easy to talk to considering this is my first time with a therapists. She really understands where I am coming from and how to cope with issues.
She is an amazing woman and I would recommend her to anyone!
I reached out to Teresa during one of the most stressful moments of my life. She moved her schedule around to speak with me over the phone and gave me so much encouragement when I needed it the most. You can tell she truly cares about her clients. I appreciate her checking in on me and being such a great support system. Highly recommend her!
