Tend to Your Mental Health With
Salt River Therapy 

Compassionate, quality therapy from therapists that actually get you

BIPOC and LGBTQ therapists available 



About Us

Salt River Therapy is a boutique therapy practice based in Brooklyn, NY. We provide individual and couples therapy for adults 18+ virtually throughout NY and NJ, and in person in Downtown Brooklyn. Our mission is to help you find your inner capacity for vulnerability, healing, and growth so that you can really understand yourself and your experiences, prioritize caring for yourself, and finally tackle the things that have been bothering you.

We love connecting with clients who aren’t quite sure what’s not working in their lives, worry about being misunderstood or judged, or might even be afraid of change. Together we can help you find clarity, build resilience, and figure out your way forward.

As a QTBIPOC-owned business we celebrate queer and trans people and people of color and understand how challenging it can be to find therapists who get us and can meet our needs. All of our therapists either identify with one or more of these communities and/or have robust skills in antiracist and LGBTQ affirming care.

Our Values & Approach

We value being therapists who actually get you - the authenticity, candor, and curiosity that we bring to our work invites clients to show up the same way. Through a therapeutic relationship built on deep understanding, we offer an individualized, uniquely tailored experience of mental health care that you can’t get at large group practices and clinics. 

Experience has shown us that real transformation involves both thinking differently and acting differently. We support in finding and practicing the tools and strategies you need to experience real change.

You don’t have to hold it all together and pretend that everything’s okay - come as you are. We’re comfortable talking about the hard stuff, let’s dig into the messiness of life together. 

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. 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 tame that feeling of being overwhelmed, 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. 

Before I founded my private practice I worked as a psychiatric social worker in the community mental health setting. If you have CPTSD, Bipolar Disorder, psychosis, or severe depression, you can trust that I have the expertise needed to guide your care.
Book a free phone consultation to learn more about my approach - I look forward to hearing from you.

Specialties: religious trauma, complicated families, figuring out who you are
Fees: $180-$220 for individual therapy, $200-$250 for couples therapy

About Jack
Hey there! I’m Jack Skelton, an Associate Therapist at Salt River Therapy. I work with you to explore deeper questions, break patterns that no longer serve you, and strengthen your rituals and strategies of care. Sessions with me are engaging and dynamic - I frequently use mindfulness, art, movement, and music activities in my approach. 

I believe that you are the expert on you, and work with you to 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. This versatility has led me to gain extensive experience working with people from many different areas of life. I welcome clients who are engaged in non-monogamy, sex-work, and/or kink. I am passionate about being a fat-positive and body-positive therapist.
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.
