Teresa O'Brien


About Me

Going to therapy takes heart and courage, so finding someone you can trust is most important. Trained extensively in Social Work and in Psychoanalysis and with 18 years in the field, I have integrated these traditional methods with experiences and studies in Ayurvedic psychology and other healing practices {mindfulness, meditation, yoga & breath work} in order to provide a therapy approach that addresses the person as a whole: mind, body, spirit & heart.

I incorporate my background in Social Work and Psychoanalysis as a framework for talk therapy, providing a safe space for healing and growth. Holistic techniques are utilized when fitting for a deep treatment and healing on many layers so that life can be led in the most fulfilling and enjoyable way.

Traditional psychodynamic talk therapy and Psychoanalysis, complete with working with the analytic couch, are available. I have experience in evidence based models as well including CBT and DBT, but I find the most important concept is meeting the person where they are at, so that the therapy process is tailored to your individual needs and preferences.

"Life is a journey, of course, like learning a martial art, you can't have partial heart." I am honored to be a part of your journey and look forward to being with you along your way.

Incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate. One of the best therapy experiences I've ever had.

Teresa is absolutely wonderful. The ability to chat with a counselor whenever I'm having issues is amazing. It lets me get exactly what's happening out immediately and then the counselor can have a more accurate picture of what I'm going through. Teresa, specifically, has been such a great help so far in helping me understand how I feel, letting me get an objective look at a different perspective which has been extremely helpful, and in giving me someone that I know supports me and has my best interests at heart. Thank you so much!

Teresa has been nothing but supportive and kind throughout my experience so far. It’s only been a couple of weeks but I’m very happy with the way things have been going. :)
