I am an outdoor enthusiast that loves to take Luna (my dog) out on adventures. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. My main areas of therapeutic focus are trauma and mental health and substance use disorders. I have specifically worked with adolescents with substance use disorder for the past year. I am certified in trauma informed yoga and believe in bringing body awareness and mindfulness practices to enhance traditional outpatient treatment
I believe we all have a unique story and experiences that we should share. My main approach to therapy is client-centered and work with the client to create a respectful and compassionate atmosphere that promotes open communication. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I am thankful you are here looking for support. We are here for you! I look forward to getting to know you.

Thank you for being a good and well-versed counselor.
Tessa is so easy to talk to! Our sessions give me clarity and peace.
I was considering leaving BH after I didn't really vibe with my first counselor- they just seemed too busy and like they didn't understand me or my goals. I'm SO glad I made the decision to try another counselor because Tessa is so great! She has really helped me as an individual and has also given me some helpful advice for my relationship with my partner and our roommate as well. I am so thankful for her.
She is amazing, understanding, and thoughtful in her responses. I feel good being myself with her.
We are only just starting, but I am feeling very confident in her insight and knowledge as well as her true concern for her clients.
Tessa has been terrific and flexible with the dynamic new World we have been living in
