Hi! My name is Tresa Butts, a licensed professional counselor, who have served within various capacities and settings as a mental health professional. My appr. 10-years related work experience entails delivering professional services to diverse populations... ranging from students to military personnel, etc. Hence, my educational background and range of knowledge and skills also encompass the parameters of mental health outpatient/inpatient services, academics, medical healthcare and much more.
My availability hours are Mon.-Thurs. from 8:00am to 6:00pm; Fri. and Sun. from 8:30am to 1:30pm. I check my emails at least once daily and endeavor to provide a response within 24-48 hours of message receipt. Please note, medical attention should be seeked in case of crisis or emergencies. In addition to messaging, live sessions are also provided via video and phone (audio) sessions.
My usual 'go-to' therapeutic approaches consist of a combination of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Strength-Based and Solution-Focused Therapy. I also acknowledge and embrace the ideology that a client/counselor team-effort and implementation of individualized therapeutic interventions are imperative to be deemed effective in alleviating my client's presenting issues. I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon and working with you on this virtual journey!

I appreciate her understanding and help.
Tresa is the best counselor I have ever had. She cares so much about her clients and I wouldn’t be nearly as okay as I am without her! Would highly, highly recommend. :)
Tresa the best! Always available and ready to talk
She is very patient and understanding. I appreciate how she validates my feelings and notices things about me that I never have, which is why I'm glad to get a second point of view on myself from a professional. I'm glad she became my counselor.
I have really appreciated my conversations with Ms. Butts. She sends helpful resources and is really great at helping me get to the root of an issue so that I can take steps to manage my anxiety and depression. So thankful for her help!
My counselor is really kind and very invested in making sure I am getting better. She checks up on me often and gives me goals to make sure I'm improving every day.
Ms. Butts is extremely caring and helpful. She helped me get through a tough transitional period in my life and helped me to uncover traumas that have been impacting my life for years. She helps me to see things clearly and put things into perspective.
she tries to be understanding and truly listen to what your going through. I feel she genuinely is concerned about youband your issues.
Tresa was very helpful in providing me with resources to meet my counseling needs. I recommend Tresa to others looking for clear, actionable ways to move forward and improve tense relationships.
She is engaged and genuinely listens to me. She asks really good insightful questions. I feel comfortable and safe with her. She makes me feel seen and heard in a way that my family and friends may not be able to.
I felt comfortable from day one with her. She gave me homework to do with different worksheets and is always open to responding to my journal entries and text entries.
Mrs. Butts is very helpful. She listens and she seems genuinely concerned with the things we discuss.
