Renewing Hearts and Minds

​Mary Teresa "Terry" Freeman, MS, MAC, LPC, CPCS

Terry's Bio

Education and Experience

Upon completion of my Master's in Community Counseling from Georgia State University in 1987, I joined a private practice in Jonesboro, GA, under the supervision of a Child Psychologist counseling children, young adults and families.  Beginning in 1990, I worked at Atlanta Mission, serving the homeless and needy for sixteen years.  As Program Director, I supervised the Personal Development Program for women and women with children who were seeking recovery for chemical dependency, domestic violence and various other life-controlling problems.  I received my MAC (Master Addiction Counselor Certification) in 1996.  I became a Licensed Professional Counselor in 1998.  After leaving the Mission, I gained experience working at Anchor Hospital and Breakthrough Addiction Recovery.  I also worked with Wellspring Living, counseling adolescent girls rescued from human trafficking. In June 2008, I established Freeman Counseling and Consulting, in the Peachtree Corners area of Norcross, GA.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a heart for encouraging people.  I consider it a blessing to be able to do what gives me great joy – watching lives become transformed through the healing experience of counseling.  I am looking forward to meeting you and having the privilege to be a part of your journey of renewal.

Specialized Skills

I have excellent clinical skills in individual therapy, family therapy, marital therapy and group therapy. I enjoy working with people of all ages and with a variety of issues such as self-esteem, relational issues, addictions, trauma and abuse.  I also enjoy public speaking with a repertoire of a variety of topics. I am particularly skilled in supervising and training others who are pursuing careers in counseling.  I have a passion for teaching helping professionals about self-care and prevention of burnout.

Other Interests

​Although I live out what I feel is a life calling to minister to the homeless, broken and needy in my own hometown of Atlanta, I also have a strong passion for international ministry.  I have gone on mission and service trips to Papua New Guinea, India, France, Puerto Rico, South Korea, Kenya, Rwanda and Guatemala.
