I am a nationally certified, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC, NCC), with further certification as a clinical trauma professional (CCTP). I became a therapist after a 30-year career in non-profit management. However, counseling was my life's calling from a young age, and for as long as I can remember.
My desire to be a fellow traveler on a client's therapeutic journey is seeded in my first-hand knowledge of the healing benefits of a trusting, counseling relationship. As an integrative counselor, I embrace a hope-based philosophy built on four theoretical pillars: humanistic, psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and postmodern theory. I am an experienced guide for my clients as they navigate the human experience, endeavoring to triumph, coping with loss, and celebrating achievement.
I believe there is an inner voice for healing inside each one of us. I encourage my clients to listen for those whispers within, which bring a sense of peace, light, and joy to them, and to become willing to honor those messages. Ultimately, I empower each individual to make the changes necessary to accomplish their mental health, wellness, education, and career goals.
My competence as a therapist comes from academic and professional experience, life-long intuition, and my own intrapsychic journey. I am experienced working with individuals from young adults through older adults. I would be honored to be there for you; to listen, to share perspective, and even to provide direction as you explore the thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors that lead to your life’s challenges. I invite you to reach out today.

Terri has been so helpful. I feel like we connect on some deep things and there is a very good relationship forming. I'm excited to continue working with her
I admit finding a counselor on BetterHelp had been something of a challenge to the point where I doubted virtual counseling was right for me at all. Then I found Terri, a writer with a kind soul. I felt a connection that has helped me through so much in recent weeks. Even through a screen, I can feel her kindness and light.
Terri is super kind and supportive.
Very insightful, and compassionate.
Terri is an amazing Therapist, she’s helped lead me to conclusions or thoughts that I might not have been able to before with how clouded my judgement can get. The practices and goals we have set/implemented have only allowed me to grow as a person and truly better respect others in my growth process. She’s also taught me a lot of beautiful outlooks to have on various situations which I appreciate. Terri rocks essentially
Terri is a thoughtful and caring practitioner. I feel very safe and comfortable working with her. She has helped me greatly in just the first few sessions.
Still new in this relationship, but so far Terri has been respectful and understanding. I look forward to working with her and see where all this goes.
I have improved in every aspect that I was wanting to improve on with my councelor. She has been very helpful with everything I needed. I highly recommend this app and my councelor .
