Teresa M. Walters, MA, LMFT, LAC

My Practice

My husband Paul and I co-founded Chrysalis Connections, LLC in 2008.  Our hope was to develop a relational counseling practice designed to support healthy relationships and strong families.  After many years of providing services to the downtown Indianapolis area, the practice has moved just west of Indy to the Plainfield Indiana community.

I currently provide services for individuals, couples, and families.  Clients can choose from in-office, online and phone appointments.  Available times and dates can be viewed on the online scheduler.

As an advocate for relational health with one’s self, others and God, I support a family first directive and shared parenting paradigm.

My Approach & Philosophy

As a relationship-focused psychotherapist, family-systems coach and marriage & family educator, I support a non-traditional, multidimensional approach to relational, emotional, behavioral, and spiritual health and healing.  My private practice is relationally based, client-driven, trauma-informed, and spiritually sensitive.

I believe that relational and emotional pain and distress are not illnesses to be treated or disorders from which to recover but rather trauma responses to be validated, shared and relationally healed in a safe and supportive environment.
