Massachusetts is best known for Harvard University, a university where the best and brightest come to learn their place in life. Your life can be just like a university, where either you know what you want to do, or are unsure and spend too much time procrastinating. 

A counselor can be like a university professor, giving you the motivation you need to succeed. Talk to one today and see where your place in life is.

Welcome, and congratulations on taking the first step in working towards your goals and resolving your problems. Taking the first step is usually the hardest so you have already overcome one obstacle. I work from a strength-based reality approach. In other words, I believe that everyone has strengths and if we can identify those strengths together, we can perhaps help you to work through or manage your current concern. In addition, you are not defined by any problems that you have. Working from the reality base is just like it sounds. That is, we have to...

Every life has a story. How you tell that story, write that story, and think about that story has a profound effect on how you cope with, live through, plan, and experience your life. Using techniques from narrative therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, collaborative problem solving, and trauma informed care, I strive to help each client to see the hope and bravery in their own story while coping with the stressors of their unique situation. My specialty is working with trauma survivors, especially those experiencing post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), de...

My name is Terri, and I have been a Licensed Mental Health Counselor since 2006. I have enjoyed my work since I received my Masters in Holistic Psychology from Lesley University, in Cambridge Massachusettes. That was almost 30 years ago, before most people used the term holistic counseling. To me, that means that you take every aspect of a human being into consideration when you have the privilege of being asked to join them in their process. I grew up in a small farming community in Minnesota and have lived in the Boston area since then. I love both, and wo...

From our very first interactions, I collaborate with my clients to address their challenges so that they can bring greater joy, peace, and acceptance into their lives.

Major life transitions can leave you feeling unsure of who you are or how to move forward. Decisions that once seemed black or white can become muddled. Constantly being reminded of the past may make it seem impossible to navigate your present. It might be unclear if you're on the brink of real change or caught in the same old patterns. It's easy to feel lost and alone if you don't have anyone who can really understand and empathize with your situation. I offer you the opportunity to explore your full self. We'll work together in this process to acknowledge and...
