Life can sometimes be difficult and surprising. There are ebbs and flows. The seasons of our life hold challenges, new issues arise, and we are sometimes confused. Perhaps what we seek is a new question. That question might lead to new answers and strategies for navigating through the present challenge.
I’m a counselor with over 20 years of experience and specialized trainings. I’ve become familiar with the variety and depth of our human circumstances and encounters. I hold a conviction and personal view that every person’s trials and perceptions are their truth and that they present an opportunity for growth. What is true for you, your reality, is our starting point toward achieving goals.
Counseling is a tool that helps us get current with our life. In the partnering of counselor and client, I utilize a holistic focus that validates your experience, finds the wisdom that makes the most sense in your challenge, and gives you a place to be seen and accepted without a need to be other than your true self.
With my ease of listening with empathy and intuition, and my ability to guide through the background noise and chaos of life events, your life story and the innate wisdom it holds will unfold so you can develop strategies that are in your highest and best interests.

Theresa is great at listening and giving helpful feedback. She's willing to ask challenging questions but also let's you come to your own conclusions. She doesn't criticize or talk down to you and treats you like a whole individual. She
She's empathetic and patient, which is so important for a mental health provider.

Theresa is a wonderful therapist with a surprising amount of insight and compassion. I'm glad I found her for sessions after not clicking well with a different therapist before, and I'd highly recommend her for relationship topics and everything else she specializes in.
