Teresa’s main focus is always to provide a safe space for those who need it in order to be seen and heard. As a Christian, Teresa believes the world has forces that work to separate us from God’s love by making us believe we are broken or unworthy. It is in these places Teresa offers God’s truth of love and strength to see that we are not what happened to us, rather already capable to overcome and use the victories in the trials as purpose moving forward.
