About Me

Hello! My name is Teresa “Terri” Carter; but everyone calls me Ms. Terri. I am a counselor licensed by the state of Georgia where I work and live. I currently work with individuals that are living with mental health concerns, challenged by emotional health concerns, and/or battling substance use difficulties. While my therapeutic approach varies according to the person, presenting concern, and/or goal, it is always warm and interactive. I am committed to establishing a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients built upon trust, rapport, and mutual respect. Therapeutic approaches I rely upon the most include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Trauma Informed Care (TIC), and person-centered approaches.

I look forward to assisting you in working through whatever is challenging or interfering with you “living your best life.”

Ms. Terri is great! A really good listener and helpful storyteller. She takes the time to understand your specific needs and remembers things you have shared with her in the past. She offers helpful homework and tools to think further about what you're working through in between sessions. I highly recommend working with her! In just a few short weeks I've definitely noticed a lot of changes because she empowers me to realize I have the tools to figure things out myself and she is here to help/hear how I am doing and provide suggestions along the way.

Terri is a savage. Honest, Empathetic and as real as it gets. Her life experiences shine through such that you will feel heard, seen, and respected. But this is not to say she shy’s away from keeping me accountable. A delicate balance of tough love, all the while keeping your end goal in sight, steering you gently in the right direction. Unapologetically truthful, with ample support and strategies to cope with and conquer those truths. That’s what Terri can do.

Written by M.I. on May 22, 2022 after therapy with Teresa for 3 months on issues concerning self esteem, and career difficulties

Ms. Terri has been a wonderful therapist. I never feel judged, she has a great personality, and I get appropriate homework assignments. She asks good questions and I feel like I am understood.

Written by S.H. on May 21, 2022 after therapy with Teresa for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Ms. Terri really pulled me out of one of my lowest moments. I really can't say enough good things about her. She's smart, she's insightful, she's kind, and she really knows how to make you feel validated and heard. It was so great to talk to someone who made me feel like I was strong enough to carry the weight of what I was going through and helped me process difficult emotions.

Written by A.L. on May 04, 2022 after therapy with Teresa for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, self esteem, relationship issues, family conflicts, and coping with life changes


I had the pleasure of being matched with my therapist Ms. Terri, about 6 months ago. Starting therapy can be scary, but Ms. Terri instantly made me feel comfortable. She is professional, competent, smart, empathetic, warm and funny. I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with her, which felt more like talking to a best friend than a therapist. She knew which direction to guide me to, when I felt lost. She believed in me when I had trouble believing in myself. Her gentle push, helped me to take steps in life, which will benefit me for years to come. I’m so happy I chose to invest in myself and was lucky enough to work with Ms. Terri.

I have been dealing with chronic pain that has been debilitating both mentally and physically for many months now. I have a major surgery coming up and Ms. Terri has helped me get in the right mental head space to cope with these life changes. She truly listens and gives me some great tools and practices to put into place in my day to day living. She has a very kind and compassionate way about her totally without judgment as well and has helped me understand the importance of self care.

Ms Terrie is the best! She’s more than a therapist, she’s very motherly and makes me feel at home more and more with each session! She is a very active listener and I feel that she genuinely understands/focuses on the problems I share with her. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better!

My particular counselor is really superb. I am very picky. I can spot a counselor who is just going through the motions from a mile away. Ms Terri really cares. She remembers things I have said in the past. She doesn't condemn or judge. She is a handsome black woman who exudes love and beauty. I trust her with my deepest secrets. She is truly gifted. And , honestly, I am very astute about people and very picky about who I allow into my life.
