Teri Edwards


About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor in Illinois with experience in treating depression, anger, stress, LGBT concerns, grief, childhood trauma, and phase of life difficulties.

I believe being understood without judgment is the main characteristic of a successful counseling relationship. My goal as a counselor is to get a solid understanding of each individual's unique concerns and challenges. I then aim to help my clients develop healthy coping skills to reduce the stress of the concerns and challenges they face. My counseling style is eclectic, combining elements of person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, Gestalt, and logotherapy.

I believe that deep down, we all possess the necessary tools to resolve even our most difficult struggles. The primary function of counseling is to get help uncover those tools.

I look forward to helping you discover strength and resources you may not even realize you have. Together, we will discover them so that you can look ahead to the future with confidence!

Terri is wonderful. She is responsive, empathetic, and understanding; she is a fantastic listener who doesn't just spin your words back to you, but lets you direct the issue until you're comfortable. She is very intuitive, knowing when to delve, and when to go slowly. She really helps you to see your situation clearly, and offers practical methods to use in your daily life. Much love to her.
