About me

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.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Terrie Deere. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

It's been 5 months since I spoke with Terrie. I came back for a session to start off my new year right, and even though it's been 5 months, she made me feel welcome and like we'd never stopped talking. This is now over 2 years since I matched with her on this app and began my therapy journey and I could not have asked for a better experience, a more qualified, kind and caring therapist, and I have received help beyond what I ever imagined I'd get from therapy. I highly recommend Terrie as a therapist
