Hello! I am a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker. I have been a Social Worker since 2010. I have had experience working with a wide range of mental health concerns such as anxiety, caregiver burden, abuse/trauma, severe mental illness, major depression, and depression related to major life changes, chronic pain, grief, interpersonal struggles and discord in relationships. I have worked in acute psychiatric care settings, by bedsides in hospitals, outpatient therapy settings, and community based services settings. My skills in navigating technology to provide care are strong and I have experience with therapy in a virtual care setting.
My approach is to listen first so that the opportunity to get to know you and your current experiences is large. My therapy approach will be catered to what might work best for you. It might be that we take a cognitive behavioral approach and identify patterns of thinking and behavior, analyzing how to make changes to help you reach your goals. It might be that we take an interpersonal approach so to better understand the way patterns in every day life impact mood and to focus on changes that could lead to improved moods. It might be we take a motivational approach because sometimes people simply get stuck with ambivalence and need some brief interventions to move into a more active stage of change in our lives. What you can expect is we will use best practice tools to evaluate if you are benefitting from the services being provided. You can also expect a whole health approach noticing all things impacting your life and explore all types of avenues leading to better overall health.
I believe in living a life consistent with the discussions we have in our sessions. I work hard to stay healthy, make good self-care decisions and spend time with my loved ones. It is important I am well to provide quality care to you! My goal is to speak from a place of wellbeing and promote these practices in therapy.
I fully support you and respect your decisions. Your story is your own and I look forward to hearing your story, talking through your story and discovering how your next chapter will read.

What I like best about Terra is she gets right to the point quickly and provides right on target suggestions without missing a beat. I get results without having to ramble on without direction and without results as I have experienced with other therapists. Terra is compassionate and effective. The perfect combo!

Terra is an amazing therapist and has helped me through a lot! She also didn’t hesitate to tell me when I needed to get more extensive treatment. Even after I started with an in person therapist she has contacted me and made sure I was doing okay as well as offered any help she could!

Terra is the first therapist I’ve been able to keep seeing regularly. All others have made me very uncomfortable. Terra brings a warmth and kindness to each session that helps me feel comfortable. She’s gotten me through so much so far. Things I never would have seen changing or going away in my life, she’s helped me conquer those things. I believe I am able to slowly start enjoying my everyday life again with her help. Therapy days are now some of my favorite ❤️

Doctor (I’m not sure what to refer her as) Prescott has helped me in so many ways.
Whether it be within myself, my family, or my friends. She’s opened my eyes about almost everything and I’m glad to have her as a therapist!!!
