About Me

I am a licensed profession counselor with a wide range of experiences. Throughout my 13 + years in the field, I have worked in residential treatment centers for adolescents and hospitals with adults dealing with depressions, anxiety, family issues, PTSD, and substance abuse.

My counseling style is direct and interactive. My clinical approach combines cognitive behavioral, narrative, and solution focused therapies. When working with addiction, I am 12 step abstinence based. Our clinical work and treatment plan will be designed based on your needs and personal goals.

I believe that asking for help is the first step in making better decisions in your life. Together we can work through any issue and achieve success. My only request is that you are honest and open about your presenting problem and are willing to take the necessary steps.

I look forward to working with you!

Teri has the ideal mix of professional and personal you want in a counselor. I met her during a very tough time and she has guided me to a much better place I wouldn't have been without her help. I'm constaly impressed how well she keeps up with everything I have going on in my life. Makes me feel like I'm her only client.

Teri is AMAZING. Such a great listener! She doesn’t just hear my concerns, she also helps me work through them and understand why I perceive them in certain ways. She is so helpful in focusing on defined goals and actions to work through different stressors on my own and help me find independence in handling my stress.

Teri is a godsend in this insane time but I would recommend her at any time. She’s tremendously helpful in session, sends useful resources whenever she comes across them and truly knows what is happening with her patients. In the past, I have seen therapist who had to check their notes and I had to explain the same issues many times, that is not ever the case with Teri.

Written by S.H. on Nov 19, 2020 after therapy with Teri for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and adhd

Teri is empathetic and patient. She is intentional about educating her clients about the methods and schools of thought she uses to address their concerns. She is a consistent and timely communicator. I would definitely recommend her to those who are new to therapy or looking for a refreshing approach.

Teri has been a great counselor and a friend to help me navigate through my tough times. To be honest, I thought cognitive therapy was just a fancy word therapists used. But right after the first few conversations, I was able to notice the effect it had on the way I think and respond to situations and stressors around me. All thanks to Teri!
