About Us

Salt River Therapy is your safe place to land. We are a boutique practice of experienced therapists who actually get you and are comfortable talking about hard stuff. 

Based in Brooklyn and operating virtually throughout NY and NJ, we offer an individualized, carefully tailored experience of care that you can’t get at large group practices and clinics. We provide individual and couples therapy to adults ages 18 and up.

We’re here to support you in prioritizing caring for yourself, understanding yourself and your experiences more deeply, and finally tackling the things that have been bothering you. Let us help you find your inner capacity for vulnerability, healing, and growth.


Free Consultation


Connect with us for a 15 minute phone consultation free of charge, and find out if we’re what you’ve been looking for. During this time we’ll get to know each other a bit, discuss what’s bringing you to therapy, and how we may be able to help. We’ll also talk through how to schedule a first appointment once you’re ready to move forward.

About Teresa

Hello and welcome! I’m Teresa Thompson, Founder and Senior Therapist at Salt River Therapy. I help clients reflect on their feelings, thoughts, and relationships, practice tools and strategies for change, and step into their truest, most authentic selves.

Clients come to me feeling unsure and insecure, repeating the same frustrating patterns over and over again, and afraid to let go of what’s not working. Our work together helps them dig into themselves deeper, ditch old and unhealthy cycles, and finally move forward on the life path that they want.

I value building a genuine therapeutic connection with you -
that’s why I’m open to bringing aspects of my personal identity and lived experience into my practice. As a binational, multiracial person living in diaspora, I relate well to “outsiders” and people with mixed or fluid identities. Women and LGBTQ clients often specifically seek me out as a therapist who is a queer woman of color - because I haven’t just studied these walks of life, I’ve lived them. 

Book a free phone consultation to learn more about my approach - I look forward to hearing from you.

About Jack
Hey there - I’m Jack Skelton, an Associate Therapist at Salt River Therapy. I can work with you to explore deeper questions, break patterns that no longer serve you, and strengthen your rituals and strategies of care.  

In my 10+ years of experience, I have supported clients overcoming a variety of life challenges - anxiety and depression, stress from disability/chronic illness and/or caretaking, self-esteem issues, difficulties setting boundaries and resolving conflicts, communication problems, and more. 

I believe that you are the expert on you, and that our work together is to help you uncover the answers true to your unique life experience. I use therapeutic models like Mary Poppins pulls from her bag—together we identify the tools that work best for you. I frequently use mindfulness, art, movement, and music activities in my approach. 

I have extensive experience working with queer and trans clients. I welcome clients who are engaged in non-monogamy, sex-work, and/or kink. I am fat-positive and body-positive. I am a white clinician, deeply committed to anti-racist work.
I am invested in you living an intentional, reflective life that feels most true to you. Let’s chat more about what working together would be like - book a free phone consultation to get started.

Right to Receive a Good Faith Estimate of Expected Charges Notice

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. 
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. 
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. 
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
