Terry is honest, wise and extremely caring. She is also very understanding and fair.  There is no chance that anybody would ever feel judged or uncomfortable sitting with her. Her expertise in marital and family therapy, as well as her experience with those around her has really made her well rounded, trustworthy and professional. I would recommend that anybody visit her. She is all ears, ready to listen and ready to guide you through your problems. More...

Terry is a very warm, wise and thoughtful therapist.  She is very easy to talk to and very professional.  She is not judgmental and makes you feel comfortable from the start.  I look forward to my sessions with her and always feel euphoric, relieved and at peace when I leave her office.  I highly recommend her to my family and friends.

Of the past few therapists I've had in 5 years Terry is by far the most helpful . She helps me by giving me exercises to do when mad or stressed . She's helping deal with many traumas I've been through recently and helps me by proving my negative thoughts and feelings are truly just me making them up most of the time. She gives me great suggestions and advice on how to handle situations and people that used to baffle me . Thank you soo much , I'm soo grateful for all your help Terry . More...

I highly recommend Terry as a clinician for all. She has an excellent perceptive skill to assess what is going on with people, combined with a deeply empathetic, intricately guiding, and enriching approach to allow for insight and to discover paths to solutions and personal growth. Terry has an essence that puts you at ease, as well as the experience to open doors you thought were closed. I refer to her as a true artisan of psychotherapy;with a balanced mix of the art and science of helping others. More...

I've only had great experiences with Terry. The level of insight and understanding she gives her clients is unparalleled. I would highly recommend her to any friend or family member looking for a fresh perspective and a kind, genuine, and comforting source of support.

Q&A

My passion is to connect to people and help them to reconnect to their inner child so that they can form healthier relationships. When I see the progress of my clients I get a great sense of joy .

I have always had an interest about the way our thoughts and emotions are connected and how the mind works. I have been involved in numerous social action committees and I found it very satisfying to provide help and make a difference in alleviation their stress.

I am empathetic and very passionate about my job. My modality is CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that focuses on improving your thoughts and behaviors which affect the way you feel) and solution focused. My approach to each client is tailored to his or her unique needs. In working with couples, I emphasize on solution- focused therapy. I use role play to pinpoint the pattern of the couple’s argument and I guide them to adapt a positive style of communication. This allows the couple to move past their resentments and hurt, to find intimacy.
