Born in Mississippi and I am of the Christian faith , I professed Jesus as Lord at the early age of nine years old. However, I did not know how to apply what the Bible said to my every day life situations. I lived a life that was not fruitful and unhappy, even defeated. As I grew older, I gained more knowledge, went to different Bible Study groups, like Kay Arthur and Explorer's Bible Study to learn more about the Bible. God showed me Himself through is Word and I began to trust Him as my Lord and Savior. The studies showed me how He was working in my life and about His attributes. It showed me the grace and love of God and I share it with others. Being a Christ-Follower means doing what God reveals to me through the Holy Spirit. I am your Christian counselor, not to give you what I think, but to show you what "truth" is as it relates to your problem area.
Hi, my name is Teresa Adams and I am passionate about marriage, family, relationships and the problems surrounding them. I am a graduate from Mississippi University for Women, with a B.S. in Food and Nutrition and a M.A. from Reformed Theological Seminary in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have been in the relationship field for over 20 years and have been a professional in the field for 10 years. I am Gottman I Certified, Prepare/Enrich Assessment Certified and SYMBIS Assessment Certified as well. I have been through me continuing education trainings in anxiety, depression, stress, conflict, communication, sexual issues and many more. In addition, my husband and I have written a marriage manual/book entitled Marriage: What To Do Before and After You Say, "I Do". When anxiety, depression and stress comes into the relationship/family, a feeling of uncertainty and hopeless erodes the mind. I want to help you eliminate the anxiety, depression, and stress in your relationship/family so life is manageable and peaceful. As a Christian counselor, with Biblical training, the answer to your problem is within your grasp.

Many issues have come to me and I am not afraid to ask the hard questions to help you through a difficult time. As a wife, mother, and counselor, I am caring, compassionate and warm in my delivery to my client. I am not judgmental and nothing surprises me. I can help!!

Teresa was kind and knowledgeable. She listened to me without judgement and very quickly was able to alleviate some of my concerns and gave me very sound advice. I would not hesitate to recommend her!
I found Teresa's style and approach very approachable and understanding. She offers real-life advice based on her own experience and experiences as a therapist. I think she is as much professional as she is approachable and I appreciate that she asks good questions! I highly recommend her.
Teresa is a good listener. She gently, but firmly pushes you to examine things that you may have been avoiding looking at. She also has done a good job of encouraging me to look at my situation through a Biblical lens.
Teresa is a lovely woman and has helped me so much with dealing with my anxiety. I definitely would recommend her as a councilor.
I think she is good at what she does.
Since we got help from our counselor Teresa, my husband and I understand each other much better that before. She is wise and knows in what areas we need to grow more as a couple. The fact that she is a Christian counselor is a big plus.
