About Me

Hi! I am so excited for what the future holds for you by taking this first step. It takes tremendous courage, but you and your happiness are absolutely worth it! You deserve to be happy and live a fulfilling life. I believe that with every ounce of my being. I have made helping people get out of their own way my life’s mission and work, starting with myself. Know that all of my advice is never something that I have not done for myself.

Let me start by telling you about myself. I have been a licensed therapist in MA for the past ten years. I graduated with my Masters degree in Clinical Behavioral Psychology from UMA of Dartmouth in 2004 and obtained my LMHC in 2006. I have worked with children and adults, with issues ranging from Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, healing from trauma and adjusting to major life changes. What I love the most about this work is creating a space that is safe enough for individuals to do the inner work which will lead them to a more fulfilled life. I believe that therapy can benefit anyone and is not about masking or escaping our emotions. It is about learning how to honor them, and having the tools to navigate through what you are feeling instead of allowing your feelings to control and define who you are. Only then can we navigate any circumstance that comes into our lives and feel like we are the master of our own fate.

Additionally, as a wife and mother of two young children, I know the challenges that couples face in transitioning from just the two of you. Being a mother is the best and hardest thing in my life. I also know first-hand the challenges a woman can face in her identity during this very vulnerable time. Since becoming a mom I have become passionate in helping woman not just regain a sense of who they were, but better yet, create an even greater version of themselves.

I have also been studying and coaching in motivational psychology for twenty years. Having also been certified in energy medicine, my style is more holistic and spiritual. I have found, that one of the commonalities that my clients possess is the inability in the present moment to fully and unconditionally love and accept themselves. That, in my opinion, is one of the most difficult things to learn how to do. But, the most important to learn if we are to live the life that we so desire and deserve for ourselves. I use many approaches and customize your treatment plan to what will work for you and your specific situation. I respect how much courage it takes to start or continue this journey. But, I wholeheartedly believe that investing the time to take care of ourselves in this way is the most worthwhile thing we can do for ourselves and the ones we love. I feel so very honored to be able to do this work and never take for granted the trust that is created in the therapeutic relationship. I look forward to working with you and being a guide that can introduce you to a happier and more empowered you!!

Terry has been great - very personable and accommodating. She instantly put my skepticism regarding online counseling at ease! She's easy to talk to and clearly knows her stuff.

I have been working with Terry for awhile now and she has helped me out so much with my anxiety, depression, stress, and anger. Also, we have been talking about my mom. I would recommend her to anyone that needs help.

Amazing ! Can’t fault her :) Super supportive and knowledgeable.

Written by M.I. on Nov 02, 2017 after counseling with Terry for 10 months family, and self esteem

Terry is a great therapist. She is incredibly professional: can listen very well, grasp the situation fast, explain in clear terms and remember the conversations over months. Terry is very intuitive and attentive. She is also very energetic and motivating.

I contacted Terry after a breakup with a girlfriend, which was painful and left a lot of issues open. Already after a couple of weeks, Terry could very well explain the dynamics of my relationship over the last 2 years, giving perfectly plausible insights into the psychology of the former girlfriend. We quickly moved on to other issues in my own psychology and Terry helped me understand my hidden motives and blocks. She gave very practical advices and exercises, which allowed not only to understand, but also to change my behaviour.

Terry is a flexible therapist, she has a big variety of methods, stories and comparisons, and you can easily discuss with her what you need to make your therapy most comfortable for you. She is very experienced - so if even if you don't have a good idea of what you need, Terry will help you find together the best way to bring you to your real and strong self.

Finally, I cherish very much Terry's spiritual experience, which allowed me as a practicing Christian to discuss spiritual issues. Here - as also with all other issues - Terry is very tactful and respectful.
