Tenisia Adams


Tenisia is earning  her Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adler University. Prior to counseling, she worked in the college and university setting helping college students navigate and discover who they want to be. Tenisia provides individual therapy for adults managing their day-to-day struggles including anxiety, depression, and discovering their true selves. Tenisia is passionate about helping those who want to discover their individual life path and define for themselves, who they want to be.


While looking through a lens of social justice, Tenisia is committed to helping those who have been consistently marginalized discover and explore their largest potential. A quote by author bell hooks that resonates with Tenisia is “once you do away with the idea of people as fixed, static entities, then you see that people can change and there is hope.”

My Approach to Therapy

With an existential therapeutic lens, I encourage clients to utilize self-responsibility and boundary setting to create a purposeful and fulfilling life. With empathy as the guide, we will explore your capacity for self awareness. Together we will discover techniques that assist you in identifying who and what in your life is helping you reach your goals. Having that kind of knowledge can assist you in feeling empowered to live a more authentic life.
