Dearest unique human,

Welcome to bravery and courage. I encourage you to embrace that feeling of being here at this moment, finding out who is Teresa and why should I seek help from her in my healing process? It is important for you to know that I am human! I have thoughts, feelings, my ups and downs just as everyone does. I am not perfect and I welcome you for who you are. I have my own story as well and I have also endured my own challenging, yet amazing journey where vulnerability was my biggest enemy. Now, I embrace it with courage and bravery. Remember, life is imperfect, full of unexpected outcomes and can be overwhelming. Through my own journey, I developed an essential passion in helping others process their own traumas.

My theoretical approach is constructed from holistic views, which means I work with the client as a whole person (mind, body, soul), focusing on healing, growth and fulfillment. My work with a client builds on a healthy therapeutic relationship, believing we are both equal. I work with compassion, empathy and without judgment and it is my hope, you gain personal insight and discover the meaning in your suffering. It would be a distinct honor to work with you and witness your healing journey.

Respectfully, Teresa R. Morales

Clinical Emphasis
  • Trauma
  • Sexual Trauma
  • Dissociative Disorders
  • Adult Survivors of Child Abuse
  • Complex PTSD
  • Attachment Trauma

Healing is also Beautiful.

As a therapist, I find the beauty in the healing process. I encompass so much pride for clients that develop insight, work hard and face the fear every day of their life. It's not easy and it's scary and can feel extremely overwhelming. But it's such a blessing and honor to witness the growth and journey in survivors.

It starts with a call, a talk, a note, etc. And you can get through it with support. I see healing every day. I witness it every day. I can tell you it is possible
