Teresa Robertson

LMHC, LCPC

About Me

I am licensed in the state of Florida and Illinois as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, LMHC and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, LCPC. I have been in private practice since 2014, first in Illinois and currently in Florida. Prior to private practice, I worked in community mental health/social service settings for over 18 years providing a variety of counseling services to a diverse population.

I earned a master’s degree in professional counseling from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in 1999 and recently completed additional graduate level courses in human sexuality, grief/loss, and trauma counseling. During that time, I extensively studied and researched these areas which provided me with additional skills and knowledge on trauma-informed treatment. I completed training for EMDR, Clinical Trauma Professional, Psychological First Aid, and FEMA – community preparedness.
I have worked with clients struggling with a variety of mood and behavior challenges including depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma and other stress related issues. In addition, assisted clients with concerns related to parenting, divorce, grief/loss, self-esteem, relationship problems, social/peer issues, bullying, changes/transitions, women’s issues, and work/school/family related stress.

My treatment approach is from an integrative perspective, a view of helping people that is not restricted to one approach. I draw from a variety of approaches and treatments techniques including but not limited to, psychodynamic, client-centered, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based therapy, as well as an understanding of how our brains respond to stress and trauma. I work to integrate those therapeutic techniques that are most useful with a client’s unique characters, preferences, and individual needs, as well as adjusting them to one’s social/cultural context. I will work collaboratively with you and encourage your input throughout this process.

I am committed to provide quality care where integrity and trust are top priorities. My mission is to help one gain insight, self-acceptance, and fulfillment, as well as the skills needed to thrive and succeed in life.

Teresa is an incredibly thoughtful, patient, and insightful person. She takes her time to listen, provides reassuring guidance, and great resources to further my self-awareness. She has a very gentle and calming effect during sessions that have calmed my anxiety and helped me focus on the next right step, however small, to take. I cannot thank her enough for her guidance!

I've had 2 video sessions with Teresa so far and I feel very comfortable talking to her. I can tell that she cares about helping people. I will continue sessions with Teresa and would recommend her to anyone looking for counseling.

I really feel a connection with Teresa. She takes me for who I am and has given me some extremely valuable tools to get through what I’m going through in a healthy way. I greatly value her and trust what she has to say as a counselor, sounding board, and a guide.

Work with me!
