Hello, my name is Theresa Otu, a Licensed Professional Counselor with over eight years of experience in the state of Wisconsin. Let me start by commending you for thinking about making some changes in your life. Personally, I believe anyone can benefit from therapy. When working with clients, I see myself as a cheerleader, encourager, listener and supporter. I am a strong believer that my clients have what it takes to bring about positive changes in their lives. Most of them just need to be reminded and I am glad to do it. I love the sweet innocence and resiliency of young people. I also love their brutal honesty which I find necessary most times.
I have extensive experience working with different age groups. My experience working at the middle school level makes me relatable to the experiences of many young people.
I have a Master of Science degree in counseling from Indiana University.
I tend to use an eclectic approach when working with clients. I do this because of my strong believe that every approach has limitations. Some of my go to approaches include CBT, Client-Centered therapy, Mindfulness therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative therapy, Solution-Focused therapy, Strengths-Based therapy, etc
I think I can help because I have a history of helping others in the past. I am not afraid to talk about difficult issues. I am open-minded, helpful and non-judgmental. Hope you decide to work with me.

Theresa truly listens, understands, and doesn't judge. She explains difficult concepts in an incredibly clear way, often using examples that illustrate the concept.
Theresa is kind, compassionate and professional. My teenager enjoys her sessions with Theresa and feels supported. We feel good about the advice she receives and the plan in place to move forward.
Listens and responds with respect and wisdom.
Theresa has been very helpful. When I'm having a tough time I think what would Theresa do? It has come in handy many times for me since meeting her. She has no judgement but is not afraid to call me out when I'm in the wrong. She does it in the most sincere way.
I wasn't sure if there was going to be a barrier at first because of her accent but by the 3rd session, I was quite surprised at her grasp and understanding of my feelings far beyond any the language indifference. She's very intelligent, kindhearted and very easygoing as a conversationalist. I've seen her only a few times and she makes me feel relaxed and understood.
Theresa has been fantastic. She's responded quickly and was so helpful to talk to. I'm hoping to talk to her again soon.
She definitely has the feel of a friend more than a counselor. I do enjoy chatting with her and she is very supportive.
Theresa has a good heart and soul and is very uplifting. She’s not pushy but suggestive and honestly tries to understand your side and make you feel it isn’t abnormal.
