Dr. Terence "Terry" Rooney

Psychologist

About me

Hello: I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist with 35+ years of clinical experience. Consequently I have a number of areas of interest and expertise that include: mental health, substance use disorders, grief and loss, spectrum disorders, mood disorders, adjustment disorders, relational issues and family therapy. I describe myself as a classically trained therapist with an eclectic tool box. Although I have worked extensively in the public sector, I received all of my clinical supervision for my license in private practice. I enjoy working with people who are seeking knowledge and self-improvement; however, I can work with just about anyone any point in their personal journey. My orientation is brief solution-focused therapy, but I have worked with individuals with challenging issues that require more time. I enjoy meeting new people and learning new things. I welcome the opportunity to work with you.

Dr Terry helped me when my regular therapist was on sick leave. He was of a great support during that sensitive time. He helped me maintain the work I started but also continue to further it. He was able to adjust quickly. He was honest and shared clear, precise and concise information on his approach, what can I expect and the limitation of what we can do. I appreciated that. He also has great communication skills. He put me at ease pretty quickly given we had a short time together. You will feel heard with him.
