Announcement icon Dear Potential Client: In response to the Coronavirus, all therapy sessions and consultations will be conducted online via Zoom platform.
Welcome to my humble abode! I'm Terri, Metro Atlanta's favorite Child Whisperer! If you've stumbled across my page, it means that you may be looking for a therapist for yourself, your child, or a loved one. Congratulations, you've just mastered the first two steps: 1. Recognizing that there's challenges that need to be addressed and 2. Seeking assistance. I work with children as young as 4 and teens as old as 19 who struggle with life adversities. I take a collaborative approach in working with families (family therapy) & parents (parental coaching) as they master the art of parenting and adjusting to the daily complexities of life.
There's no secret that life can be hard, not to mention the task of raising little people can make life more challenging; and you know what? That's ok! I'm here to help, so take a breath! I take an urban, non-traditional approach to therapy and it works. I'm the guru of "kid brain", and the voice of let's make this dysfunction functional!
It's normal to feel stressed about what you're going through. If you're open to it, let's make some changes so that life starts to become a little less stressed each day at a time.
