It is my passion to help people find their sense of self and set out on the journey of wholeness and navigating their world experience after trauma.
"Through therapy with Teresa Schroeder I was able to better manage my anxiety which allowed me to restore broken relationships with some of my family members. By concentrating on the physical symptoms that occur during my severe anxiety, I was better able to recognize when I was suffering anxiety and start managing those symptoms. This was life changing for me as it gave me back a level of control that I felt I lacked during these episodes. Additionally, Teresa was able to help me identify previous experiences that might be affecting my reactions. Understanding why my reactions may not be proportionate to the current situation was very helpful in helping me set necessary boundaries so I can avoid situations that take me outside my area of comfort. Eventually my stress levels dropped and I was more capable of dealing with daily life again. I feel more empowered and prepared to face whatever comes my way."
