So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains and
we never even know we have the key

Dr. Terry

I specialize in trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression and Bipolar Disorder for adults, teens, and families. I also have 30 years of experience assisting people with life and job stress, men and women's issues, health issues and life transitions. My focus is wholistic, strength-based, pragmatic, genuine, and solution-focused. While helping people navigate the challenges of their lives, I have learned that a common struggle for people is to understand their identity.

Our identity is defined as the fact of being who or what we are. Yet it can also be an abstract concept defining how we perceive ourselves. This concept cannot be quantified and can consist of a set of personal traits or values. It may be affiliated with our religion, ethnicity, culture, family, friends or career. It is a powerful perceptual phenomenon that can guide our actions, goals, and aspirations.

Awakening Identity can be achieved by accessing the strengths and dreams within us. As we understand more about our internal world we begin integrating our spirit, emotion and mind. To awaken identity is an experience of being whole and a part of all around us alive and connected.

Prior to the first session, please complete a simple biographical information form to assist in our sessions together. You are welcome to arrive 30 minutes early to your first appointment to complete the biographical information form; however, I have also made a digital version available below for your convenience.

Clients often find that it is preferable to print this form out and complete it in the comfort of their own home, which allows more time during the first session to focus on your needs and concerns.

In addition to the biographical information form, please also review two other forms that will help communicate the parameters of the therapeutic relationship:
