Life is tough when relationships are rocky. Let’s get you on a better path.


Your partner feels more like a roommate than a soulmate. Which is not exactly the kind of relationship you signed up for… Because, instead of being happy, you feel unappreciated and alone. You want closeness and connection but both end up frustrated instead. Communication keeps going sideways and, no matter what you do, the smallest things seem to devolve into arguments. And you are so over it. Seriously, something needs to change.

You’ve tried to fix things on your own but nothing has worked. So, while you could keep spinning your wheels, you’re ready to get clarity on moving forward and live a life that feels right. You’re looking for a therapist who’ll get you, your situation, and actually be able to help.

You’re in the right place. Helping people improve their relationships is my passion (and, spoiler alert, I’m good at it). Now I don’t have a magic wand but I’m also not trying to keep you in therapy forever. My goal is to give you the tools so you don’t need to see me anymore. And, when you work with me, you can be confident that I have the training, experience, and skills to help individuals and couples who are struggling in their relationship. (I hate to break it to you but this is NOT true of most therapists…).

A little about you…

The Fixer

You’re a go-getter and a “get-it-done”er. You pride yourself on your ability to tackle tough problems. But right now everything feels like it’s falling apart. Suddenly you don’t have the answers and all of your attempts to fix things seem to make it worse. Don’t panic. I’m here to help.

The Aspirer

On the surface you look like you have it all together. But underneath, you’re a ball of stress. No matter what you do, it’s never good enough. And the quest for success, for perfection, is wearing you down. It doesn’t have to stay this way. Let’s see if we can’t get you on a more sustainable path. 

The Juggler

You’re stretched way too thin and are barely keeping it together. You’re trying to be a good parent and partner but feel like you’re failing everyone. It’s nobody’s fault but sometimes marriages get strained, careers get sidelined, and kids get snapped at. Let’s make life manageable again.

If you’re tired of feeling stuck and want to do something about itI’d love to hear from you!

A little about me… 

Evanston Therapist  

I’m Theresa Herring, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist & Certified Discernment Counselor, and I’d love to help. I’m no bobble head and you won’t find me asking you questions behind a clipboard and furtively scribbling notes. No, I’m a roll up my sleeves and tell it like it is kind of therapist. In our sessions I’ll offer insight and practical solutions to help you move forward. My clients appreciate my warm, empathetic and down-to-earth approach. They also like that I have a sense of humor and don’t take sides when working with couples. But more than anything, they appreciate that I know my stuff. 

Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling 


Couples therapy is my jam. While many therapists offer it, most don’t have the specialized training and experience to excel at it. Luckily for you, I do. So if you’re looking to stop fighting and start reconnecting, you’re in the right place. You don’t have to settle for a sexless, argument-filled relationship. Feeling disconnected from your partner sucks. And my guess is you’re looking for someone who gets it. Someone who understands the needs of millennial and Gen-X couplesblended families, and adult children of divorce. You’re looking for an approach tailored to your specific needs. I hear ya. Your relationship is unique. And you want a therapist who is going to treat it as such. Don’t worry, I got you.

Premarital Counseling

You want to set your marriage up for success. You’ve seen other relationships end in divorce and you don’t want that for yours. So you’re looking to make the investment in premarital work. You love this person but you’re also realistic. Premarital counseling is the best wedding gift that you can give marriage.

Couples Therapy

Right now you’re in the “roommate rut” with your partner. Perhaps there has been an affair. Or maybe it’s just that you struggle with communication and conflict resolution. The one thing that’s certain: You need this relationship to get better. You can’t continue on in this way. Don’t worry, there’s hope.

Discernment Counseling

Divorce is on the table. One of you is considering leaving the relationship and the other is trying to save it. You are looking to get clarity on this relationship and the future of your marriage. You want confidence in your decision to divorce or to be able to work it out. You’re in the right place.
