Healing and Empowerment through therapy

Hi, My name is Teri and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in San Diego. I have a passion for helping others and I have been doing just that for over the last 13 years. I believe that all people are entitled to a great life despite the things that they have experienced in their past. I help children, adolescents, and young adults that have experienced trauma and are experiencing feelings of shame, anger, detachment, anxiety, and depression, and having a difficult time in their relationships, work, and day to day life. I help them to overcome and cope with such feelings, and empower them to have the life they want through healing from their past traumas. I specialize in working with parents that have experienced childhood trauma by giving them the tools, guidance, and support to heal, grow in their role as a parent, and cultivate the relationship they want with their children. I have years of experience working with children and families that have experienced trauma. It can be hard to know where to start, and almost impossible to start alone. Therapy is not a one size fits all remedy. I provide psychotherapy and work from a strength-based perspective and tailor my therapeutic practice to meet each person’s specific needs. I am currently only offering virtual therapy and would love to help you through this process. Click the link to get started with a free consultation.
