I am a Licensed Mental Health Professional Counselor (LPC) with 20 years of experience in mental health. I have worked with ages 3 years and up to include children, teens, adults of all stages of life, and the elderly. I have spent time in school based counseling as well as outpatient clinic settings. My primary treatment approaches for teens and adults are client centered and cognitive behavioral but I also borrow from other therapies including but not limited to trauma focused and psychodynamic. I try to use treatment approaches best suited for the client and/or family and which create the best theraputic results.
I have gained much experience in working with clients suffering from depression, anxiety, grief or loss, low self esteem, anger issues, attachment issues, and life changes with transition difficulties. I have worked with clients suffering from traumas and abuse and worked closely with rape victims in my area and served as an advocate for them when needed. By working with many families involved in the Department of Children and Family Services I was able to provide parenting education and work with foster and adoptive families.
I provide a nonjudgmental environment for my clients and encourage the client to lead each session in their chosen direction for theraputic work. I hope to provide clients with the help and support they need and assist them in learning how to best help themselves as the final outcome of a healthy theraputic relationship.
I look forward to meeting potential clients and answering any questions they may have.

Terrie is the best counselor I have ever had. She identifies with me and my issues and she relates to me, which helps me trust her and makes it easier to understand the perspectives she shares with me. I have been talking to Terrie for over a year and she has helped me immensely with several of my issues.
Love Terrie, has been the most helpful and I know I have a bright future
In a very short time, Terrie is able to discern one or two points where I can choose to take action to create positive change. She clears away the cutter and creates clarity.
Very understanding and knowledgeable.
Terrie is very compassionate, listens attentively, and responds in a quick manner. There is also something so soothing about her voice when we talk during our sessions. I would highly recommend her!
Excellent experience. Very intelligent and skilled. Very helpful. Very honest. Kind.
Terrie is relatable, adaptable, and knowledgeable. She always offers an ear, empathy, and solutions to whatever I want to talk about, no matter if I'm having a great week and want to chat about current events or a difficult week where I feel so alone in the world. She's my ideal match to talk to and strikes the perfect balance between talking it out and working to improve.
I love speaking with Terrie and she is always able to help me process my feelings. Terrie always reads my journals and provides excellent feedback. She has also helped me work on my confidence level and achieve a better view of myself. I am so thankful to have been matched with Terrie because she has helped me so much. Even my family can see a difference!
Terrie is amazing. I’ve really enjoyed my sessions so far. She’s supper helpful.
Terrie is a great professional and just an amazing person to work with. She is a good listener and I felt very comfortable sharing my life story with her and discussing all sorts of issues without feeling embarassed for anything. It was also a very healing experience to share my journaling with Terrie. After 3.5 months of therapy I felt a great improvement and addressed issues, which had been bothering me since early childhood. I am really grateful to Terrie for her understanding, patience, for giving me valuable advice and motivating me. It has been a real pleasure to work with Terrie!
Great service & therapist!!!
Wonderful person! Great listener. Gives great advice.
She helps me turn negative thoughts into a positive rhetoric. And it’s helped me approach little daily micro aggressions with more maturity and an opportunistic outlook.
Terrie was professional, she was empathetic and sympathetic to my situation. She validated my feelings and helped me come up with a plan of action to reach my goals.
