Something’s not right.
It feels like there’s an invisible wall between you and the life you want to live. It shows up when you try to move forward in any number of personal, emotional, relational, and/or vocational endeavors. Attempts to change destructive behavior, or reduce depression and/ or anxiety symptoms hit the same wall- and attempting to improve patterns of communication, or efforts to repair, improve, or leave troubled relationships may feel impossible.
It’s not that you haven’t tried to stop the behavior, fix the situation, improve the relationship, or change your reactions and emotions. Likely you have, and thus far your attempts have not produced the relief or lasting results you need.
What thrills me about ‘doing therapy’ is the healing journey. I count it a privilege to walk with my clients as they move from their individual, or relational hurt and pain, through the education and healing process, to building the foundation for a life you are excited to get out of bed to greet, and then living it!
My name is Teri Acosta, and I am an associate Marriage, and Family Therapist with a masters degree in Professional Clinical Counseling and MFT. My therapeutic style is personal, compassionate, whole person minded, open, bold, at times humorous, and most importantly, effective.
Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked as a Personal trainer and Nutritional Consultant for a bit more than a few decades. For years I witnessed the interaction between a person’s physical self, their emotions, thought processes, self image, and even their relationships. Simplistically stated, it’s as if our separate parts talk amongst themselves. Hurt and pain affect the mind, body, emotions, soul and spirit. Deep healing needs to do the same.
