My Approach to Helping
Teresa's professional goal is to serve as a resource and point of intervention in the facilitation of healthy self-efficacy, healthy self-concept and healthy relationships. She is dedicated to providing a safe and supportive place to explore concerns and gain the tools necessary in pursuit of the very best Self. It is Teresa's belief that through increased self-awareness, people are empowered to change, and empowered people are positioned to take responsibility for their own lives, emerging with greater clarity, purpose, and happiness.
