Teresa Thomas, M.A.
Smart, Positive & Solution-Focused
Hi! I am Teresa Thomas, a therapist, marriage counselor, and life coach. I work with couples, families, and individuals looking to improve their lives. My approach is strengths-based and client-centered. While I’m very solution-focused, I also have a background in systemic therapy and I believe in the power of getting to the root of issues by working through past experiences and family relationships. Doing this deeper work, combined with action-oriented strategies, allows me to help you to move forward and establish strong foundations for long-term change.
With individual clients, my passion is helping create healthy self-perceptions and strengthen relationships so they can push through challenging stages in life. My expertise is in relationships, and I can help you work through the pain of a hard breakup or divorce, improve your communication and self-confidence, and have a better relationship with yourself. Through compassionate coaching and counseling, I work together with you to set achievable goals and increase your motivation to take action. I believe that you have the capability to live your most fulfilling live and I would love to be your partner in helping realize your full potential.
I also have extensive experience working with couples and families. If your relationship has been feeling hard lately, I can help you both uncover the origin of your discord, and build on strengths you already possess. I can help you resolve many different issues such as emotional and sexual intimacy, communication, recovering from an affair. I also enjoy premarital counseling, and can help you start your marriage from a position of empowerment and strength. In addition to working with couples, I love working with families. I can help you if you’re in a stressful blended family situation, or are going through a divorce and need help in restructuring your family roles. I can help you improve your parenting/ co-parenting relationship with your partner (or Ex), I can help you improve your communication with your children, and I can help your whole family deal with grief, loss or other challenging life transitions. I am passionate about helping couples and families mend their relationships through skill building and empowering therapeutic strategies.
