About Me

Hello, my name is Theresia. I am an experienced Licensed Mental Health Counselor that provides psychotherapy to adults, children, adolescents and families through the delivery of counseling, crisis intervention and consultation. I am proficient in my field with significant knowledge in clinical diagnosing, trauma, crisis and conflict intervention, as well as experience with high risk populations. I am also a PhD student with five years experience of evidence-based research and advanced studies in couples, families and adolescents. I have a pragmatic understanding of clinical interventions and treatments, and I am able to apply these strategies in real life experiences. As a clinician, I go beyond the "textbook" version of counseling. By this, I mean I understand the importance of engaging with clients, being relatable and realistic to their needs. My favored therapeutic modalities are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Structural Family Therapy (SFT) and Family Systems Therapy (FST). I also use an eclectic approach which means each person is unique and I base my clinical approach on the individual needs of my clients.
I am down to earth and I make myself available so that I can provide relevant feedback and support when its needed. I am here to listen, support and assist my clients in managing areas of conflict in their lives. Whether its a search for meaning, help managing depression, difficulty in relationships or traumatic memories, I am here to support you and help find stability and peace of mind.

What makes me different?

I engage with my clients daily! It’s not just a once a week thing. I check on you during the day, and I am here for you as a supporter and as an outlet. My goal is to build you up to a point of resiliency so that you can advocate for yourself. You may leave me a message at any time, and I will respond to you as quick as I can with relevant feedback to your conflict. The process will not be easy, but it is possible. I make it my business to understand your experience, offer realistic feedback and interventions that will help you. I see each client as unique, and therefore my strategies are genuine to your specific need. I am here waiting to help you. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

I can’t be more grateful that this app help me get to work with Theresia. She’s always listening, will check on you regularly and will respond and gives out feedback. Theresia makes me feel comfortable and not being judged all the time. She knows that English is not my first language, and she really tried to understand what MY culture is like, what languages mean to me. I have been working with her more than a month. I really can feel my progress. I am looking forward to work with more this following year.

Theresia and I have only just began our journey together, but I very quickly felt comfortable to talk to her which has never been an easy thing for me to do. Amazing to have the support and guidance to ask questions of yourself and find answers you never new were there. So much work to be done but I have a trust in her already and believe that she can help me to get to where I need to be. Peace of mind is invaluable and I think Theresia is the person that will help me to find that.

First and foremost, Theresia will be there for you. She is for me. A constant presence, reassurance and place to find perspective. Her style of counseling allows me to learn about what is happening in my head and through that I am empowered, with the knowledge and her encouragement, to help myself. She is gifted in this line of work.
