Theresa Cornelius, M.A.

Theresa Cornelius View Specialties

I have a masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Hope International University. In addition to my education, I bring a lot of life experience to my work as a daughter, parent, wife and widow who has journeyed through many painful and joyful life transitions. I believe this has matured my heart to offer compassion, acceptance and wisdom to my clients. It has helped me know I can't be effective as a therapist without a surrendered relationship to the Lord. 

It is my goal as a therapist to provide a safe, caring environment that will help you uncover your true potential to lead a life that is worth celebrating.  I will tailor my approach to fit your unique needs instead of expecting you to adjust to my methods.  If you're looking for practical support and guidance through a challenging situation, I can work as a short-term, solution focused therapist.

Or maybe you're ready to work on deeper issues that have been shadowing your life for a long time.  While you can't change the past, understanding the ways it affects the present, empowers you to change your future.

Together, we can unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions to help you discover the truth about yourself and your relationships. You may grieve losses on this journey, but I will also help you recognise the strength and resilence your experiences have created in you. That provides the balance of grace everyone needs.
