Theresa Winther, MA, LMFT, SUDP, MAC
With 20+ years of experience in mental, emotional and behavioral health services, I specialize in counseling those with the desire to change their behavior for a more fulfilling life. As a Marriage & Family Therapist with my Masters in Addiction counseling I rely on the partnership within therapy to create a space for growth, goal achievement and peace within. This includes adolescents, couples & families, Breast Cancer survivors and clients working with schools and community systems. I have extensive experience providing therapeutic support to adolescents and adults whose behaviors are no longer benefitting them or those around them.
My approach is drawn from Solution Oriented therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Survivor and Life skills with trauma focused interventions. I am an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) candidate that believes we can move through trauma to a life with happiness, balance and authenticity.
In the cases of community teams, I view the experience of working with families/caregivers and the systems that touch them as opportunities to collaborate and partner on the best plan possible for the biggest outcomes.
My work is collaborative, holistic, and strength-based. My approach to therapy is client-focused with an emphasis on including the whole system when defining the problem that may bring you to therapy. My work is individually tailored to meet the needs of the client/s, which means that the methods/theories I include in our sessions will be based on what best serves your personality and needs.
