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.”
Additional areas of focus: Stress, Anxiety, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Depression, Coping with life changes, Coaching, Compassion fatigue

Ms Teresa has been my bugging support system ever since I started talking to her. She is empathetic, and so understanding. She knows exactly what she’s doing and it works

I have worked with Teresa for the last 6 months. She is honest, compassionate and offers suggestions that are immediately useful. She had helped me immensely and I absolutely give her the highest recommendation.

After beginning my journey with Ms. Carter last year I can honestly say it's been one of the best choices I've made I'm my life, Ms. Terri is a compassionate thoughtful and wonderful person very nice and very sweet. Do not mistake her kindness for weakness she will also be fair and call me out when it's warranted like. Thanks to her I've learned a lot more about myself through thoughtful discussion and have become a better version of myself. I could not be happier that she is my therapist and my friend.
