About me

Hello, my name is Theresia, but you can call me Tee! I understand that right now you may be feeling lost, frustrated, angry, hurt, and depressed; believe it or not...I’ve been there! I understand what it’s like to feel hopeless, scared, worried, alone, and overwhelmed. Right now you may not even know what you feel. I know you have many questions and yet so few answers to what is happening in your life right now. This is where I come in. I am here to listen to you tell your story and help you figure out how to move forward in your life, more importantly, I am here to give you support and understanding so you do not have to do this alone.

I am an experienced mental health counselor and marriage and family therapist. My specialties include depression, overthinking, trauma, low self-esteem, anxiety, confidence issues, and more. Through counseling, crisis intervention, mindfulness, and consultation, I provide psychotherapy to children, adolescents, couples, and families as a clinical mental health professional. My focus is on depression, overthinking, trauma, releasing trauma, and trapped emotions from your body. Also, I work with people who have low self-esteem or confidence issues, and I provide effective ways to manage and reduce anxiety. I help you figure out why you feel the way you do and how you can change it.

Also, as a relationship expert, I can help you understand why you may find yourself repeating unhealthy cycles in relationships, struggling to set boundaries, or even trying to figure out what you want. My PhD level and extensive training in family dynamics, personality, and even societal pressures have allowed me to help many build and maintain healthy relationships.

As a clinician, I go beyond the "textbook" version of counseling. By this, I mean that I understand the value of engaging with you, being relatable and realistic about your needs, and supporting you in your efforts. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Positive Psychology, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Structural Family Therapy (SFT), and Family Systems Therapy (FST) are my preferred therapeutic modalities. Aside from these, I have been trained in many other modalities, so my approach to therapy is eclectic. Thus, your counseling experience will be genuine and tailored to your specific situation. I am down to earth, and I am always available to offer relevant feedback and support. As you go through the current conflict or crisis in your life, I am here to listen and support you. Whether you are seeking meaning, managing depression, anxiety, difficulty in a relationship, or dealing with traumatic memories, I am here to support and help you.

What makes me different?

Well for one, I won't sugarcoat it. I will be honest with you and tell you what I see, because if I am not being honest with you, then I am not helping you. I will then help you to cope, heal, and build emotional resilience, confidence, and provide you with strategies that help you gain clarity in your life. I understand this is a vulnerable experience for you, so I will support you every step of the way.

In addition to this, I will engage with you throughout the week so we are not just meeting once a week, but talking, interacting, and working on the problems that led you here. This is a judgment-free zone that will give you the freedom to be yourself and discuss what is happening in your life. My goal is to build you up to the 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 quickly as I can with relevant feedback on your conflict. The process will not be easy, but it is possible. I make it my business to understand your experience and offer realistic feedback and interventions to 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.

Written on Mar 27, 2024 after therapy with Theresia for 2 years and 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I requested a therapist change and I chose Theresia because of her positive reviews and the therapy approaches she offers. It was the best decision I made. Theresia is an amazing therapist! She's attentive, warm, kind and very uplifting. She is very clear on what to expect and what she can help you with. The sessions starts and ends on time. I love that she teaches me tools which I then get to practice until the next session. She follows up on these, things we talked about, and my therapy goals in general. The room she is practicing in, is very calming and quiet. I haven't experienced any interruptions which I am very grateful for.
I usually leave the therapy sessions feeling like I really worked through something, feeling very proud of myself, feeling equipped for the upcoming week, and feeling optimistic for the future, and that I will be able to handle things by myself more and more.
