Hello! My name is Thesla (sounds like Tesla) and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (118593) with 5+ years of experience providing mental health services in a variety of different settings. I have worked with populations that include adults living with Schizophrenia Spectrum Illnesses in a long term care facility. I have worked in Crisis Home settings supporting adults as they transition from hospitalization to outpatient care as well as providing case management, groups, and family therapy in an inpatient hospital setting. I have also worked with foster youth in a residential setting providing services such as crisis management, case management, family and individual therapy. Most recently I have worked with children, teens, and families as they manage symptoms of trauma, anxiety, depression, behavioral challenges, etc.
People seek therapy for different reasons. Maybe you’re going through a tough transition in life, or maybe you’re struggling to share or communicate how you feel. Maybe you’ve been experiencing uncomfortable and stressful feelings that leave you feeling stuck and unable to move forward. Or maybe you just want someone to listen to you. My goal as a therapist is not to provide you with the answers, but to provide you with a safe and genuine space to explore what brought you here and work collaboratively with you to bring about growth and change.
