“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.”

Hellen Keller


Welcome to
Encouragement Counseling

Where you can find help for depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, and relationship challenges in the comfort of your own home.

Your Therapy Experience

Teresa Buxton, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, is dedicated to the healing of emotional and psychological wounds brought on by childhood trauma, relationship difficulties, and the challenges everyday life can bring. Teresa believes change is possible and will partner with you to bring about the lasting change you desire to see and experience. In therapy, you will work to identify self-limiting beliefs and behavior patterns that keep you from experiencing joy and reaching your full potential. You will also tap into your inner strength, learn new ways to cope, clarify your values and define success on your own terms.
