Have you ever wondered, “What is wrong with me?” If your mirror can talk back to you, what would it say? What good things or bad things will it tell you and how would you respond? I will be the mirror that will help you learn more about yourself and will give you an honest reflection so that you can make the best decisions for yourself. I tailor my counseling approach based on your specific needs and goals. I combine a person-centered counseling approach with brief solution-focused therapy to give you the best outcome, respecting your time and money. I have a master’s in counseling with a dual emphasis on both School Counseling and Agency Counseling. I have over 16 years of counseling experience with all age groups, diverse populations, and subject matter. With my many years of experience working in schools, hospitals, and the community, there is very little I haven’t seen. You don’t have to do life alone. Bring me your challenges, your struggles, and your troubles, and let’s work together to resolve them. I also provide Christian counseling: God never promised us a life free from struggles, pain, or sorrows (John 16.33); however, He did promise that He will never leave us (Matthew 28.20). Life is not meant to be lived alone: It’s not a good thing (Genesis 2.18). I am here to support you and to remind you that you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalms 139.13-14), and you are loved (John 3.16). Nothing is impossible with God (Matthew 19.26). Whatever you are struggling with, whatever troubles you, know that God has a purpose for your life (Romans 8.28). As a Christian counselor, you can trust that my counseling approach will not stray from the teaching of the Bible. May God guide us as we work together to understand His purpose and His plan for the challenges in your life.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
In our first session together, we’ll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you’re facing. This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
Currently, I only offer telehealth services. Due to the limitations of telehealth counseling and the nature of my counseling style, I will not be able to provide the best care for the following clients: Mental health diagnoses (bipolar, schizophrenia, or PTSD), couple’s counseling, or counseling for a child under the age of 8. I apologize to you in advance.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
Here are some quotes from my clients: "Teya is the best listener and has wonderful advice. I truly appreciate her." "Teya is friendly and very down to earth. She makes it easy for her client to relax and be themselves. She listens and respects her client's pace and what is important. One of her highlights is her ability to be genuine. I appreciate how she is her natural self. She does not camouflage herself and has a good balance of personal and professional." "I was very nervous to start therapy. Teya has put me at ease and I’m making significant progress. I’m feeling better and more confident about myself."
