About Me

Hi, I'm Teresa. You have taken the first step on your journey to health and healing. It takes strength to take that first step, often the most difficult step, to ask for help. I want to help you to learn to manage your struggles and feel in control of your life. Let me tell you a bit about myself:

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) practicing in Wisconsin.

I will work to build a trusting relationship with you. I believe in an open and honest relationship and I encourage you to share your honest feedback with me so that I can meet your needs and expectations.

Written by S.A. on Sep 02, 2021 after counseling with Teresa for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, anger management, and bipolar disorder

I appreciate Teresa so much. She has helped me realize so much in such a short amount of time. I always dreaded therapy or counseling (anxiety still tries to get the best of me) because I have always felt like “another client”. I feel so much more than that with Teresa. She makes me feel worthy and helps me realize I AM WORTHY. She guides me on how to have those hard conversations with the people I need to. I’ve learned and put so much of what she has told me into consideration and even into action and I can honestly say I feel a lot more hopeful about life and living life AS ME. I truly appreciate Teresa and her time .

This is my first therapy experience and I feel very comfortable talking with Teresa. She is very understanding, non-judgemental and SO kind!

Written by D.A. on Jul 29, 2021 after counseling with Teresa for 7 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

After having Teresa as a therapist I can say with certainty that I am more comfortable in my personhood as a whole. She has allowed me to allow her to make an impact on my life and the way I view myself and the world around. It has made all the difference. I appreciate her and my first experience of therapy deeply. I feel as if I stand under a new sun.

Written by T.A. on Aug 29, 2020 after counseling with Teresa for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Teresa is such a sweet woman and has helped me through so many hard times. I’ve messaged her, audio messaged her while crying, talked on the phone, all of it. You can tell how much she cares, and how much she wants to help. I’m beyond grateful for her, and would recommend her to anyone!

Written by E.L. on Jul 21, 2020 after counseling with Teresa for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Teresa is very good at listening and making me feel validated. She checks in when I’ve been quiet for a while, and responds right away. I like that I can message when I’m having a hard time, and not wait for a session. She’s helped me reach clarity after just a few sessions.
