Theresa Smith

(LPC)

About Me

I have been a licensed professional therapist for 12 years I received my Masters degree from Oral Roberts University in 2008. I am a follower of Jesus and believe my career is the call of God on my life. I have vast experience with many behavioral, social and emotional issues. I started my career working with women who were victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. That transitioned into working with male victims and also perpetrators. This taught me how to help men with their emotional issues. Working in this field I came in contact many people who had substance abuse issues so I studied and pursued experience with alcohol and drug counseling. I worked in drug court and private substance abuse counseling for the last 9 years, In my practice I have gained experience helping people with depression, anxiety, trauma, abandonment, PTSD, grief, attachment, shame and anger issues. My approach is client centered therapy incorporating cognitive behavioral therapy, compassion therapy and motivational therapy. If it will help my patients recover I will utilize it. I know that some problems only God can fix. The greatest tools I have to help you is the love and comfort of God and the wisdom of His Word. My focus to help you will be using my clinical mental health experience combined with Christian teaching and values. People who contact counselors for help want to feel safe and respected never shamed or marginalized. I believe they want to be listened to and understood. I treat everyone with compassion. I am looking forward to working with you and helping you have discover better mental health and a happier life.

Just in the brief time I've worked with Theresa, I have made great progress with my anxiety among other things. I'm blessed to be Theresa's client as she continues to listen, support, and challenge me. If you're seeking true, holistic, and Biblical counseling, look no further than Theresa!
