Teresa Rutledge

LPC

About me

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) who chose this profession later in life because I have always had the desire to help others in ways that will really make a difference in their lives. I am empathetic and a good listener. I provide emotional support to my clients without judgment. Many of my clients have suffered from trauma, isolation, and rejection from family and friends. Some of my clients have experienced episodes of self harm, suicidal ideations, and suicide attempts. I primarily use a client centered approach, as I believe that clients are capable of making the right decisions for their lives with the right support. In addition, I use other therapeutic modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, mindfulness, positive psychology, anger management, motivational interviewing, and coping skills for anxiety and depression. I prefer to work with adults, but will work with older adolescents as well.

Mental health is as important as physical health, and when one suffers, the other suffers as well. So many people do not seek the help they need because of fear of being labeled or stigmatized. As human beings, we are creatures of memory, and sometimes our pasts keep us from becoming the person we want to be. I want to be the one to help you become your best self.

I honestly love how understanding Ms. Teresa is. She is encouraging and actually takes the time to listen, allowing you to finish your thoughts. She helps you through what’s troubling you, by giving you the space to express yourself. I’m happy I was able to spend the time I had with her. She has a kind spirt that helped me open up! I can not thank her enough.
