It seems my whole life has been one of servitude – as a retired Army Soldier who proudly defended the United States at home and abroad for 23 years, my passion and dedication for serving my nation have continued in my career as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) to help those in need of understanding themselves better. Why should you choose ME, over anyone else? That is the burning question. As I sit here and try to think of all the ways to possibly distinguish myself in comparison to my peers and colleagues, one specific thing comes to mind: the exact moment that I knew I wanted to be a therapist. My life’s trials and tribulations have put me in a strangely unique position in regard to understanding and empathizing with much of what is thrown at many of us, and it is because of that, that I found strength in my weaknesses and lowest moments. Readjusting to life after deployments, after the military, after divorce and growing pains and heartache, was a monumentally transitional period of my life, and my therapist bared the brunt of my pain with compassion and grace. In my very last session, I looked him in the eyes and said: “I want to do what you’re doing. I want to help people the way that you’ve helped me. I’ve been on this side of the table – now I want to be on that side.” It took eight grueling, yet rewarding, years from that pivotal moment to hang my degrees and licensures on the wall of my office. In 2016, I graduated from the University of Washington with a Master’s in Social Work (MSW) and have since received independent clinical licensures in Hawaii, Tennessee, Texas and Washington State. Now here I am, asking for you to trust me with your deepest fears, anxieties, shame and trauma in hopes that we connect deeply and authentically in order to face them head-on and overcome your blocks and challenges together, step-by-step, day-by-day. I think it’s important to recognize that although what we each personally feel and experience is completely subjective and unique to us, we are not the only ones who have, for example, felt depressed or anxious. Sometimes finding peace in that awareness is comforting enough – to know that others have also struggled and managed to overcome similar obstacles. So, what’re my credentials, expertise, focus and treatment approaches? Credentials: MSW, LICSW (WA), LCSW (HI, TN, TX) Expertise: My background and personal experience of the military and with Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) ensure that I have a good handling on trauma and know all too well the burdens of Veterans that come with serving your country during war, as well as in the aftermath. Beyond that, I specialize and have experience with anger management, mood disorders, thought disorders, personality disorders, anxiety, social anxiety, depression, grief, eating disorders, self-esteem issues. Focus: Although I have worked with younger clients successfully, I typically treat adults and elders in an exclusive one-on-one environment, via tele-behavioral health psychotherapy or individual face-to-face sessions, if you are in my local vicinity. Approaches: First and foremost, my approach is and always will be centered on YOU. I find that building a strong therapeutic alliance together starts with getting to know each other and building rapport. I clinically find myself utilizing a psychodynamic approach to therapy with my clients. I believe we are who we are today based on the many influences we had in our lives, especially in those formidable early childhood years. Oftentimes, we can find the source of your current concerns today by processing how you originally developed your core values and beliefs. These roots run deeper than we typically ever realize without therapy. If you choose to work with me, we will naturally dive deeper into what this may mean for you. The path of healing is not an easy road, nor a short one. Doing the work takes gusto, but I believe that you have it inside of you, and I believe that I am the one for the job to aid in your process and growth. I hope to hear from you soon!!!

Hello, my name is Teresa, practicing mental health for over 16 years working with the military population. Working as a middle school teacher in a lower socioeconomic area. This led to my desire to go back to school for my master’s degree in counseling psychology. Receiving my LPC licensure, led me to pursue my chemical dependency counselor license (LCDC). I began working as a substance abuse counselor with the US Army in substance abuse counseling. While working with the military I worked at a local hospital developing a program for civilians in chemical dependency. The need to work with individuals, and families including Service Members, led me to work as a contractor for private corporations. During this time, I received a certification in behavioral therapy to work with the autism spectrum population. Raised as a military dependent, then wife and mother, I experienced many aspects of different personalities. I was led to understand what it means to try to hide who you are to eventually become someone you may not recognize. The goal is to have you see, life is wonderful, we go through the storm to appreciate the sunshine. The experience developed led me to work with addiction, anxiety, PTSD, and many other mental health issues. We are a beautiful bouquet with different views on life. Using an eclectic therapeutic array of mental health care has allotted me to develop individual care. This concept of care is the same for couples and group therapy. Some techniques include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and psychosocial therapeutic techniques.
