I am a native of Atlanta, GA and have over 15 years’ experience in the social services arena.
As a therapist, I engage and educate my clients on how their thoughts and feelings truly have correlation with the actions they exhibit and symptoms they experience. I believe, if a person can learn/create healthy coping mechanisms such as, thought stopping techniques, positive self-talk, meditation, self-regulation, and mindfulness living, then change can certainly occur. I strive to inspire and inform my clients in recognizing the power force that already resides within. I am intentional on meeting my clients where they are to provide a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential space to express themselves.
Some of my experience includes, spirituality, LGBTQIA, depression, grief, anxiety, self-esteem concerns, anger management, stress management and communication/relationship difficulties, just to name a few. I support my clients in uncovering their hidden abilities. As well as, overcoming obstacles and traumas. All, while using CBT and DBT modalities. I offer inspiration, encouragement, compassion, kindness and validation as the keys to unlock the hidden power that each of my clients possesses. I am honored to be chosen to share the sacred space of vulnerability with my clients and watch them transform towards positive progression and manifestation.

LPC #LPC008588 (Expires: 2022-09-30)
Outstanding, helpful and enlightening.
She's lovely and listens to me even when I'm panicking and she takes me seriously. She's very nice. She also provides helpful suggestions that aren't just try meditation which is superb. 10/10.
Just a joy and helping me find my happiness
Teressa has been incredible. She has listened, helped me understand where I'm not listening to myself, and has been compassionate and really insightful. She is fantastic.
Teressa is a wonderful counselor, deeply understanding and thoughtful in her every response. I really appreciate her ability to hear what I'm saying and pick out the important details from my muddled thoughts. The activities she suggests to help work through past trauma are excellent and I always feel heard after a session. Thank you!
Teressa has been so wonderful and helpful throughout my entire experience with her. If you’re looking for someone who is both comforting and able to help you change your current situation she is the councilor for you!
I absolutely love Teressa. I feel so comfortable with her. She’s able to get me to open up more and is relatable and more than understanding.
