About me

I have been a licensed professional therapist for 14 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 discover better mental health and a happier life.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Theresa Smith. 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 is great at listening & finding the good in situations all while caring for your heart. She gives practical tools to help you walk out of the pit you’re buried in.

Theresa is the real deal. Never thought I'd say I enjoy counseling, but I do with her. She has taught me a lot over our time together. Thank you Theresa.

In one session w Therese, I was put at ease w her truths and confidence as she asked deep questions as well as her recommendations for books on the issues at hand . She also shared insights w me that were Biblical that I had misinterpreted. I look forward to our weekly conversations
