About Me

I am a Licensed Practical Counselor with over 20 years of experience working as a professional counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addiction, parenting problems, trauma and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse due to domestic violence.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. However, I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

In a nutshell, Teresa is everything I had hoped for in a counselor: empathetic yet constructive, able to challenge you, etc.

Teresa is lovely. I really trust her. She listens to me and responds in a way that I find works for me. I am making good progress thanks to her support. I never thought that I would be able to sort my self out but Teresa is the perfect person to help me.

She has a very warm personality and makes me feel very comfortable opening up and talking to her about anything and its usually very hard for me to do that so I definitely love the vibe she brings.

Teresa Worthy is a wonderful therapist. She is non-judgmental and open to discussions. She listens to what I have to say but still provides encouraging, honest feedback. I feel like I can take her perspective and apply it for my longer term goals as well as short term ones.

Teresa made me feel comfortable and allowed for me to open and share without judgement. I found myself enjoying the session and left feeling lighter/less nervous than when I entered it, I also left armed with some tactics to help me through some issues when they arise. I look forward to more sessions with her.

I really appreciate that she takes deeper, and doesn’t take my nonsense or excuses. She does all of this in a respectful manner, but makes you think. I think that I was matched with a great counselor. I will continue working with her

Teresa is a wonderful listener and responsive to particular and important issues .She really did help me to be able to see and re frame communication in a very eye opening way. I am thankful for that.

Teresa is a great therapist. She has a soothing voice and a calming affect, which is why she is a great fit for me. I'm able to be honest with her and she gives me honest feedback, yet in a non judgemental gentle way.

I really enjoyed my counselling experience with Theresa. She is knowledgeable, friendly and seemed to understand my unique concerns. She made me feel comfortable, too. I am glad!

Written by A.A. on Feb 20, 2021 after therapy with Teresa for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, and self esteem

Teresa, despite only knowing me and my troubles for a few weeks, really helped me through a tough moment in my life.
She helped me see that I was able to pick myself up, and helped me see the faults in my own perspective without making me defensive. She pointed out behaviours and thought patterns detrimental to my mental health, and strongly encouraged me to put an end to it, and I have done so for now.
All in all 10/10, thanks Teresa.

It's been really refreshing to have an online mental health platform, during Covid especially. So many people not being able to see anyone in-person can benefit so much from this or even just being thoroughly heard, listened and responded to with focused advice when needed.

Teresa has a way of just cutting right to the heart of things in a way that makes you feel totally heard and understood. I have only had a couple of sessions with her so far, but I'm really happy with the rapport that we have already.

Teresa is the perfect counsellor for me. She is approachable, empathetic, knowledgeable and willing to interact on a level that feels very personal and bespoke. She is able to walk that fine line between being personal and professional and could not recommend her enough.

Teresa is an incredibly intelligent and thoughtful counsellor, who is easy to speak to and listens intently to your dialogue and needs. She has an excellent ability of connecting the dots in your story that you may have never seen, and facilitates personal discovery of why you think and feel the way that you do.
