Reaching out and trying to find a therapist can be one of the hardest things to do when you are feeling in chaos and in crisis. Once you take that first step, it gets easier and progressively easier. Feeling like someone is actually listening to you and focusing on you is so important, especially now days. As a therapist, I focus on each person’s specific needs and I adjust my style accordingly. I tend to draw from solution focused, strengths based and cognitive behavioral areas in order to help folks problem solve things that are going on currently and in the past. I also draw from my Christian faith and meet folks where they are at within their own faith. This has worked well for my client’s and outcomes have been positive.
I will strive to help you feel comfortable and safe from judgement and censure. Together I feel we can work on goals you want to achieve that will help you feel more confident, motivated and self-aware. I have over 10 years of clinical experience. I have been privileged to have worked in hospitals, outpatient clinics, and community teams providing therapy in homes, as well as private practice.
I have a great amount of experience with relationship difficulties, stress, anxiety, mood disorders, ADHD, Autism, PTSD, eating disorders, parenting, grief/loss and medical changes. I obtained my Masters of Science in Social Work from University of Texas at Austin. I feel very strongly about quality therapy being provided for clients, so I obtained higher clinical training and acquired my license to supervise others in my field who also want to provide therapy and help people. I feel very strongly about discovering our own gifts we have been blessed with and then using them in service of making the world better and helping others.
Being accepted and understood is what most people want and need. It would be a privilege to be present with you and provide that safe non-judgmental space so you are able to process and grow from the challenges life has thrown your way. In terms of availability, I check and respond to messages at least once or twice daily, Monday through Friday. I try and maintain a good work and family balance and focus on the family on the weekends. I offer live chat, phone sessions and occasional video sessions weekly, mostly between the hours of 8am and 6pm on select days of the week. I also offer a few live chat sessions each week in the later evening hours or on the weekends depending on needs and school/work schedules.

I've been working with Teresa for about 3 months now. She has been so supportive, informative, and the knowledge she has on a variety of topics and disorders is amazing! She gives Bible verses as well as information based in science! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a therapist with a great head on their shoulders!
