About Me

Hello, my name is Theresia. I know right now you may be feeling lost, frustrated, angry, hurt, and depressed. You may feel hopeless and may not even know what it is you feel. You may have so many questions and so few answers to what is happening in your life right now. Well, I am here to listen to you tell your story and help you figure out how to move forward in your life. I am an experienced Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist. As a clinical mental health professional, I provide psychotherapy to adults, children, adolescents, couples, and families through the delivery of counseling, crisis intervention, and consultation. I am here to help you with whatever it is you are going through. I am proficient in my field with significant knowledge in clinical diagnosing, trauma, crisis, conflict intervention, and experience with high-risk populations. I am also a Ph.D. candidate with five years’ experience in evidence-based research and advanced studies in individual family systems, couples, families, and adolescents. I have a pragmatic understanding of clinical interventions and treatments, and I can apply these strategies in real-life experiences.

As a clinician, I go beyond the "textbook" version of counseling. By this, I mean I understand the importance of engaging with you, being relatable and realistic to your needs, and just supporting you. My favored therapeutic modalities are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness and Positive Psychology, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Structural Family Therapy (SFT), and Family Systems Therapy (FST). These are just a few of the many modalities I have been trained in which allows me to use an eclectic approach to therapy. Therefore your counseling experience will be genuine and based on your individual needs. I am down to earth, and I make myself available to provide relevant feedback and support when needed. I am here to listen to you and support you as you face the current conflict or crisis in your life. Whether it is a search for meaning, help to manage depression, anxiety, difficulty in relationships, or traumatic memories, I am here to support you and help you find stability and peace of mind.

What makes me different?

I will engage with you daily! It is not just a once a week thing. I check on you during the day, and I am here for you as a supporter and an outlet. This is a judgment-free zone that will give you the freedom to be yourself and discuss what is happening in your life. My goal is to build you up to the point of resiliency so that you can advocate for yourself. You may leave me a message at any time, and I will respond to you as quickly as I can with relevant feedback on your conflict. The process will not be easy, but it is possible. I make it my business to understand your experience and offer realistic feedback and interventions to help you. I see each client as unique, and therefore my strategies are genuine to your specific need. I am here waiting to help you. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Theresia is very knowledgeable and was able to identify my underlying issues and help me work through them. I am very pleased with her expertise and her interpersonal skills. This is my first time in counseling and she was able to gain my confidence and trust from the beginning. I am so glad I had her as a counselor. It was money and
time well spent.

I'm so glad that I decided to work with Theresia! She exceeded my expectations and makes therapy the best that it can be. She put me at ease and I like the organized approach she took. She helped me to sort out and pinpoint what I really wanted to work on and how to get there. Theresia is very professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her to anyone, especially someone who has never had counselling before.
