13 years of experience

I'm a licensed clinical social worker who prides herself on helping clients develop healthy relationships with themselves. Enjoys identifying herself as a big nerd that mixes her knowledge acquired from her Master of Social Work degree and a Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice, specializing in Criminal Investigation to teaching client nuggets of information that can assist them via the healing journey. Recently have embarked on obtaining a Doctorate Degree focused on Trauma Informed Practices.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I believe my clients are the experts in their lives and I'm here to assist. You can expect an open, honest, and transparent environment where humor and tears are welcome. This level of vulnerability allows us to engage in lasting change work clients are looking to engage.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Utilizing my training in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, we'll use this approach to assist you in locating your inner strengths. We'll work as a team to change specific thoughts and reactions that can keep you stuck in tough times.

About Teresa Guzman



My treatment methods

Trauma Informed Care

Trauma informed care acknowledges the need to understand a client's life experiences will affect the deliver of care. The therapist will engage in work that provides safety, empowerment, and collaboration.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of talk therapy that allows clients to learn coping skills that teaches them to manage their unhelpful thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affecting their feelings and actions.


Strength-based approaches help build from the client's inner strengths. We will use your strengths or helpful core patterns of thinking and behaving that when used intentionally, benefit you all around.
