About Me

Hello,
My name is Teri I have been providing counseling in California for over 20 years. I have a Master of Science Degree from California State University San Bernardino and have been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 2003.
Initially I provided counseling to traumatized children and adolescents. For the past 16 years I have provided counseling to men and women in substance abuse and recovery, and who have the co-occurring disorders that are often present such as depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress syndrome.
I am a compassionate, honest, cheerleader with the gift of encouragement. I utilize motivational interviewing to assist us in discovering what goals are most important to you and provide cognitive behavioral, solution focused, and client centered interventions to help you work toward and achieve those goals.
I know what it is like to want to change and the courage it takes to reach out for help. I will help you take that motivation for change and grow it into the best life for you today.

I really appreciate all that Teri has done to work with me. I feel heard and validated and my goals are clearly prioritized. She has a very client centered focus, while also not afraid to challenge a client in a supportive manner in order for them to grow. I feel thankful to have gotten Teri as my therapist- I've had many over the years that I didn't connect with, didn't listen to me, didn't help me, etc, and can say with certainty she knows her stuff and guides you to become a better you :) highly recommend!

Teri has been very helpful. She has been supportive, and has helped steer me in the right direction to figuring out how to resolve my issues. Working with her has provided me with tools, goals, and solutions to work through my past, present issues, and proactive solutions to handle the future. Just knowing she is there, by responding in a timely manner and being flexible to accommodate both our schedules and keeping up consistent weekly sessions, has also been great.
