I am an empathic therapist with many years of experience working with children, families, and individuals struggling with issues of Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Attention Deficit, Autism Spectrum, among others. I strive to be both compassionate and empathic while helping the client along their journey of healing. I am able to use a variety of clinical approaches which the client can select according to their own comfort level from medical model to solution focused, to spiritual or Christian counseling, to holistic and energy work, along with traditional models of Cognitive Behavioral Methods and Narrative Therapies. I can adapt and modify any or all of these modalities according to the best response and comfort level of the client. I rely on quick thinking and a sense of humor and engage clients with genuine concern for their well-being.
I received my MSW education from Grand Valley State University and my degree in Family Life Education from Spring Arbor College. I have obtained additional certifications as a trauma specialist, a Reiki practitioner, an Advanced Clinical Heart-Centered Hypnotherapist, and I am certified to lead seminars in Intensive Personal Life Transformation.
I look forward to working with you as you travel your journey.

I couldn’t be more pleased with the help and insight Ms Gibson has given me. She makes herself freely available, whenever I need to speak to her. She has also not only given me verbal therapy, but also has provided articles and worksheets pertaining to the subjects we speak about. She has helped me so much, and I have recommended her to a couple of different friends. I’m very grateful I took a chance with BetterHelp.
Theresa was very helpful in times of crises. She is not only professional, but also very kind and caring. She sees things from your perspective and does her best to help you evaluate the bigger picture. She is undoubtedly a reliable source of support, confidentiality, and advice, and is always checking in on your well-being and development.
Theresa is great. She continues to challenge my way of thinking so that i have started automatically considering other points of view when facing struggles. Im really looking forward to continuing our journey.

Great person to talk to! I've had a rough time with a recent move and it has helped to have someone who can listen and offer suggestions for how to cope with the stress. Life isn't easy, but it helps to have someone that has seen issues like mine before. 10 / 10

Theresa is absolutely wonderful. From the very first session I knew that God had sent me to her. She has been a godsend with helping with my anxiety. I was so far deep in my anxiety I couldn’t even leave the house. And thanks to her I’m out and about. She continues to help me with my daily struggles but I feel confident with her help I WILL get better.
I love working with Theresa, she’s funny warm and understanding. I really enjoy working with her.

I have been working with Theresa for a while now, and I find her to be the best help I've had in a very long time. She is easy to talk to, and we have developed a great rapport already.
Theresa has been incredibly helpful in helping me deal with a wife who is going through treatment for some mental health issues. I didn't really have anyone to talk to as I don't want to air our dirty laundry with friends and family so this format has been perfect for me. Theresa has been amazing.
Theresa was helpful in offering suggestions of things to try or do that I had not considered with a quick response time. I appreciate that she hung in there and kept trying different ideas with me even though I had several hurdles to work around. Thank you Theresa!
Theresa has helped me realize a lot about myself that I had suppressed. She is kind, patient and observant. I have come on a long way since talking to Theresa and I highly recommend her to anyone in need of therapy.
