Hi there! My name is Tessa and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor who holds a BA from Elon University, and a MS in Counseling from Southern Methodist University. I have spent time working with individuals, couples, and families at different levels of care. Through an individualized, strengths-based, and collaborative approach I strive to allow clients to feel heard and understood as they process through a variety of life challenges. I also enjoy incorporating expressive arts into therapy when clinically appropriate. I have a strong desire to provide the very best care to the clients I serve.
I spent 4 years working primarily with Eating Disorders in addition to many comorbid diagnoses at an Inpatient/Residential treatment facility. I also have experience working at the Partial Hospitalization level of care working with OCD, Anxiety and Depression. Some of my specialties include EMDR, EFFT, CBT, DBT, ACT, Expressive Arts, Eating Disorders, OCD, Anxiety, Depression.
In addition to my professional work, I enjoy spending time painting, traveling, and exploring the great outdoors with my four-legged pride and joy, Honeybelle. Please reach out for a free 15-minute consultation call.
