My faith is part of my spiritual armor and I don't leave home without it. I have seen the success of using Biblical Affirmations mixed with faith to make powerful changes in life and I have experienced the power of truth through confession, humility, forgiveness and restoration of relationships. If you are seeking a counselor who knows and believes scripture and uses prayer and the living word as a tool and a weapon, look here. I understand being led by the Holy Spirit and the now faith of Hebrews 11:1. I have a powerful testimony that proves the living God has been with me since before utero when my own mother had rejected me. I do believe that we are all called to love God and one another and that this is learned and modeled.
As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, with 10 years of experience and almost 6 decades of life lessons, I have worked closely with all populations, including military. In addition to being in mental healthcare, I have been working in education and have worked with children, ages 3-22, with all exceptionalities, including giftedness. Prior to completing my bachelors degree in college, I was in the entertainment industry and worked as an entrepreneur for over 3 decades before attending a private bible based christian college to study missionary aviation and counseling.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Theresa Mago. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
Theresa Mago is a wonderful counselor/therapist. She is warm and listens very well and very thoughtfully. She has given me great resources that are helpful for my particular situation. She never judges. She only offers insight and suggestions that in my case have been very helpful in learning how to create boundaries, and stand strong. I highly recommend her.
