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 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 in your life. I am an experienced Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist. 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, 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 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 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 is 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 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 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 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.

I love that Theresia is very understanding and honest with us during our marriage counseling sessions. She has a lot of insight and techniques for us to be the better version of ourselves and helps us deal with our emotions and other members in our family in a constructive way. She has experience dealing with families internationally and I highly recommend her!
