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.”

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Teresa Carter. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Ms. Terri is full of wisdom and no-nonsense guidance that always sets me back on the course of self-compassion. She has helped me manage the stress of daily life and parse out unhelpful thinking. We've been working together for more than three years now and she's an invaluable part of my mental health care plan!

Miss Terri has helped me grow so much. She has been there through thick and thin. She knows personalities very well, which makes her great for navigating difficult relationships. She taught me about alcoholism, self love, forgiveness, radical acceptance and so much more. She stays on task and offers comfort naturally. She is free of judgement and full of knowledge. I know I will continue to grow with her help. I am so grateful for her!

She’s a very good listener and always has answers to my questions. She never makes me feel uncomfortable to share anything and she is very helpful

I have really been enjoying my sessions with Teresa! She is easy to talk to & gives useful advice. Just a couple of sessions with her have been very eye-opening & empowering! Talking with her is giving me the extra motivation I was hoping for, to make choices I feel good about; on the inside & out.

Ms.Terri made me feel so comfortable so quick. After our first session I literally could not wait to meet with her again. She is understanding, empathetic, honest, and caring. Her homework is relevant to what your goals are and she truly helps you tackle whatever it is you are having trouble with. I am so glad my first therapy experience was with her. Don't hesitate to start your journey with her!
