Theresa Peters, LCSW
My name is Theresa Peters I currently have over 15 years experience working with adults, seniors, foster care youth, adolescents, children, and adults with disabilities. I obtained my Associates degree from Chemeketa Community College in Salem Oregon, majoring in early childhood development. I furthered my education through University of Phoenix receiving my B.S. degree in Human Services. Finally, I completed my education at Portland State University receiving a Masters degree in Social Work. I am currently working as a Clinical Social work Associate, working towards my Licensed Clinical Social Work licensure. In addition to my education, I have experience working with many other agencies such as Willamette Valley Hospice, Marion County Disabilities Program, Marion County Juvenile system, Department of Human Services, and Trillium Children’s home. These experiences have enriched my life and allowed me to build countless relationships.
I am a non-traditional therapist who works with the mind-body-spirit connection. Though I have a broad scope of traditional therapy models, I also embody a holistic approach to therapy. Using my knowledge of Family Systems Theory, Attachment, and Cognitive Behavior Therapies along with implementing Energy Psychology, I work from a (whole) person perspective. I am an intuitive empath who uses these abilities to help guide individuals to their unique truth. I believe in creating a therapeutic relationship that allows for trust, growth, and self-discovery. I am honored and grateful to share this opportunity and believe that people deserve to heard, happy and whole.
