So my brilliant idea was to recreate my “a word from Teresa” page to actually tell you a little bit about who I am as a person and therapist in addition to demonstrating that I have the requisite knowledge and training to work with people who desire relational, emotional, behavioral and spiritual wholeness.
You see, I work as a therapist because I personally know that therapy works and I firmly believe that it is difficult to take someone to a place you’ve never been. With over 30 years of personal recovery, I know how difficult it can be to begin the journey to wholeness. But I also know the benefits and joys of doing the work.
If you don’t remember anything else about what you read on this page, please remember this one fundamental element that drives everything I do, and everything I believe in… There is Hope. Happiness, Health and Wholeness is Possible.
No matter how far down the ladder you think you have fallen, real, transformative, restorative and life affirming change is possible for you!
I love working with clients with these struggles because I have been there and I know there is life on the other side of these types of issues. I can’t promise that the pathway up and out will be easy but I can promise that it will be so worth it.
As your therapist, my job is to come alongside and help you discover your unique road to recovery. It takes commitment and honesty but if you are tired of being unhappy, discouraged, disconnected and are ready to actively pursue the changes you desire, it will be my joy (and my privilege) to walk the road to happiness, health and wholeness with you.
In fact, I may, from time to time, even call you on your stuff… in a loving, therapisty kind of way.
I believe therapy to be a collaborative effort and as such I will actively work with you to achieve your desired outcome and results. Once we have become acquainted and spent some time exploring your familial background and life experiences, we will jointly put together a plan, roll up our sleeves and get to work.
I tend to be fairly un-shockable, so please don’t be afraid to bring what ever you need to discuss into the therapy room.
Therapeutically, I am oriented in Bowen family systems (intergenerational) theory and as such I tend to interact with clients much as a coach would, eliciting and supporting your emergence into a new way of being with yourself, with others and with the God of your understanding.
Lets get started!
I’m excited to hear your story and join you on your journey to relational, emotional, behavior and spiritual wholeness.
