Hi, I'm Terra a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia. I have 8 years of experience guiding adolescents, and adults with issues such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and relationship issues on their path to healing. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Talladega College, and my graduate degree from Faulkner University. I look forward to meeting and guiding you with achieving your goals.
One client I worked with in therapy had issues with expressing their needs. We worked together to help them gain the confidence, and language they needed to express themselves. It was one of the best feelings seeing their growth.
When working with me you should expect a safe, collaborative, and supportive environment with you having full autonomy. It is my goal for you to feel seen, heard, understood, and equipped with the skills to move their lives forward.
Our first session together will consist of me answering any questions you may have, gaining insight into your goals for therapy, and making sure you feel comfortable and confident in moving forward working together. We will also work on a plan to help you achieve your goals.
I enjoy assisting people with achieving their goals leading to balance and mental wellness, which can improve all areas of their lives. It is the most fulfilling part of my job of as a therapist to be a part of such an amazing process.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
Clients should expect to take away a sense of hope and peace from our sessions. Hope in the sense their lives can and will improve thus putting them on a path to peace and mental wellness. In addition to knowing that they have a therapist that cares for their well-being.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I utilize evidence-based therapies, including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
Having worked with a variety of populations and issues I strive to provide a calming and supportive environment for my clients. I utilize cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, solution-focused, and client-centered approaches to best meet the needs of my clients. I like to work from a collaborative approach that strengthens therapeutic relationship and empowers clients.
