(LPC, ATR)

About Me

Hi there! First of all, I'm really proud of you for taking this step and making an effort to take care of yourself! I'm Teresa Henson. I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Oklahoma and a registered art therapist. I've been a therapist for about 20 years. I'm pretty casual and eclectic with therapeutic techniques, eclectic techniques mean a combination of modalities or a specific one that may to suit your needs best. I lean towards person centered therapy- this means, you talk or type, I listen and read and we come up with a plan to help you. If you need a more structured therapeutic model, we can do that as well. We can incorporate art therapy in our sessions if you'd like. I tend to carry conversations during sessions in a casual manner. I would love to tell you that I had the magic wand to wave and fix the problems and concerns that brought you here, but it's just not that easy. Therapy takes time and work, work from you to use what you can from the things you've gotten from our time together.
I've worked with clients as young as 4 to adults. I've got experience with stress related issue, self improvement, anxiety, anger, depression, life changes.
The most important thing I'd like to share is this is your time, your safe space and your thoughts and feelings are valid. My job is to help you work through some things that brought you here with empathy, compassion and without judgement. We are working together to help YOU and I'm going to work in ways that are going to best suit your needs.

Teresa is very empathetic. She listens and asks pertinent questions. I feel comfortable in sharing my feelings and experiences.

Teresa was wonderful! Patient, responsive, enjoyed my dark twisted sense of humour, and made coming to counselling so enjoyable. Words I never thought I’d say. Thank you for everything over the last few months! I appreciate everything that you have done for me during our time together.

I have a hard time trusting people. I'm quick to connect and get along with anyone, its just opening up is extreamly difficult, confusing and painful for me. Because of this ive had a lot of issues finding a mental health professional. Teresa has been so patient and understanding I've finally been able to get though some things I haven't been able to talk about my entire life. She came into each session judgement free and genuanly listened to me. I felt like my problems were not only seen and heard but I was able to feel like I had support with working through my problems. And that's more than I could have asked for thank you Teresa!

I can’t say enough good things about Teresa Henson. She truly has shown me that regardless of this being her job she cares about people. She made me feel so comfortable especially since this was my first time doing online counseling. She is going through major battles in her life and still made sure to assist me whenever I needed. She took the time to give me tools that I could use in the future and has helped tremendously with the way I communicate with others. I will definitely come back and search for her. I wish her nothing but the best and know whoever is lucky enough to get her as a counselor is in great hands! Thanks so much for everything Teresa.

I had a good experience in the couple of counselling sessions I had with Teresa. For me it was a safe space to speak without being judged, where the conversation could be serious but didn’t always have to be. Teresa’s open and caring personality make you feel like you’re talking to an old friend, which makes it easier to open up about yourself.
Thanks Teresa!
