About me

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.

I have been married for 32 years and have raised four children. I believe the family is the fabric of your society and without the family our society is in deep trouble. 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 has been an encouraging and challenging voice in my life, speaking words of truth at times when they need to be spoken.

I have met with Teresa several times the past year. Teresa has been a compassionate, understanding, and supportive counsellor. She provided a safe and trusting environment for us to talk through many things. Her genuine care comes through and her faith also was very important to me. She provided good support, and suggested directions as well as some good reading to supplement the journey. Thank you, Teresa!

Talking with Teresa has been very beneficial for me. I would consider the work that I did with her regarding my relationship with my mother a breakthrough that has permanently improved my thoughts and attitudes. I appreciate her incorporation of scripture and Biblical principles to address everyday problems.

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.

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.

Work with me!
