About Me

Hello, my name is Theresia. I know and understand that relationships are difficult. I know sometimes you may feel unappreciated, misunderstood and find it difficult communicating with your partner. 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 little 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. I am an experienced Licensed Mental Health Counselor and I provide psychotherapy to adults, children, adolescents and families through the delivery of counseling, crisis intervention and consultation. I’m 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 and conflict intervention, as well as experience with high risk populations. I am also a PhD student with five years’ experience of evidence-based research and advanced studies in couples, families and adolescents. I have a pragmatic understanding of clinical interventions and treatments, and I am able to 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 providing you with support. My favored therapeutic modalities are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Structural Family Therapy (SFT) and Family Systems Therapy (FST). I also use an eclectic approach which means each person is unique and I base my clinical approach on the individual needs of my clients. I am down to earth and I make myself available so that I can provide relevant feedback and support when it’s needed. I am here to listen to you, and support you as you face the current conflict or crisis in your life. Whether it’s a search for meaning, help managing 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’s not just a once a week thing. I check on you during the day, and I am here for you as a supporter and as an outlet. This is a judgement 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 a 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 quick as I can with relevant feedback to your conflict. The process will not be easy, but it is possible. I make it my business to understand your experience, offer realistic feedback and interventions that will 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.
