Teresa graduated from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 1984 with a degree in elementary education, and her first teaching job was in Charlotte, North Carolina. She met her husband while in college. They have two adult children, a son-in-law, and a daughter-in-law. Having grown up in middle Tennessee, she was thrilled when her husband was transferred to Nashville in 1992. In 1996 she returned to the classroom as a teacher at New Hope Academy and later took a job in the Franklin Special School District. It was during her years as a classroom teacher that she saw how relational problems within a family have an effect on the whole family. She soon found that her passion was working with the heart issues within the family, so returned to school in 2003 working towards a graduate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. She is now a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and has worked as a private contractor in Christ Community Church’s Counseling Network since the spring of 2006. During these years, she has been honored to walk through trying times with couples and individuals. In addition to her work at Christ Community, she also serves as a staff therapist at a large church in the Brentwood area.

Arlin and his wife Cathy have four children: ranging in age from pre-teen through teenager. As an adoptive father, he is vitally interested in helping families with post-placement attachment challenges and to that end has completed the Trust Based Relational Intervention intensive with Dr. Karyn Purvis, and level one Theraplay training.

“Too often we live life in the fog of good health and favorable circumstances. But then, inevitably, something happens. Something difficult and hard to understand. Something that pushes to the forefront the need for wisdom. Is there hope? On whom can I depend? What am I living for? What matters? Will I live? How will I live? Seeking counsel is often the first step we take on our journey from confusion to song. It is one of my greatest joys to walk this journey with families, couples, and individuals (adults, teens and children) as they begin to unpack their inner world—gaining clarity, meaning, wholeness and freedom in the process.”
