Therapy with Teresa
I am a Brooklyn-based BIPOC & LGBTQ affirming psychotherapist providing individual therapy sessions virtually throughout New York State. I help guide clients to the vulnerability and self-introspection needed to explore their inner capacities for healing and growth.
I offer therapeutic support for challenges such as depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, healing from trauma, family conflicts, codependency, grief, life transitions, chronic pain, and struggles with identity.
I also specialize in:
- Culturally informed care for the West Indian/Caribbean diaspora
- Psychotherapy for mania and/or psychosis
- LGBTQ-affirming support for queer and trans Catholics and Christians
Getting to know yourself and your experiences more deeply through therapy, with honesty and compassion, can allow you to open up more space in your life for attunement, self-actualization, and delight. I encourage you to schedule a free consultation to learn more about my practice and discuss if therapy might be right for you.

More About Teresa
LGBTQ and Transgender-Friendly Brooklyn-Based Therapist
I practice psychotherapy as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of New York. I am a graduate of the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College, and I have completed additional advanced clinical training through the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center’s Clinical Journeys program.
Before entering private practice I worked in the community mental health setting, primarily supporting low income individuals, people of color, and people from immigrant communities in managing chronic mental health conditions. I value taking a holistic approach to psychological wellness, incorporating understanding of how a person is shaped by their social, cultural, and environmental surroundings.
When I’m not practicing, I love journaling, taking my dog on long walks, and trying new adventures in vegetarian cooking - all of which help me provide psychotherapy from a place of centeredness and joy!and emotions, experiencing psychosis, and spirituality.
Call me today at 347-766-4949 to learn more about how I can help.
