I’m Teisha, Owner & Lead Clinician. I am a Licensed Psychotherapist in Pennsylvania, with grief & trauma specialties. It is my passion to help individuals quiet the mind and overcome challenges that are interfering with their lives. As we struggle to understand ourselves and the world we live in, we may feel tired, lonely, and helpless. I know exhaustion, irritability and uncertainty can be overwhelming, and seeking help will bring relief.
As a Black therapist, my lived experiences have allowed me to be culturally-sensitive and attuned to each person I work with, particularly BIPOC population. I understand that no single approach is the right one for everyone and it is important to tailor the therapy approach to each individual and meet each person where they are.
As such, I use various approaches, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Humanistic Therapy, Integrative/Holistic Therapy, and Gottman Method Couples Therapy. My resume is colored with a wide variety of experience that profoundly impacts my work with people. A great deal of my professional practice has been working with individuals, groups, couples and families, substance abuse, and LGBTQIA+ populations.
I have worked with adults and teens on trauma and PTSD, grief and loss, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, behavior modification, inner child issues, identity and self-esteem issues, substance abuse, stress and anger management, parent-child interactions, personality disorders, relationship issues, abandonment, and Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA) related issues.
My style is relaxed, yet structured which is congruent with my personality and everyday way of being. I believe this to be important because I know if I’m not genuine in my interactions with you, then it becomes more challenging for to be genuine in your interactions with me. And, when you feel safe to be real with me, we can work on how these issues carry over into the rest of your life.
