Announcement icon Due to covid 19 outbreak I am offering teletherapy. I use HIPPA compliant doxy.me to continue providing care during this difficult time
Are you frustrated dealing with the every day stressors of life? Feeling irritated? Have reached a point where you feel you need support? My approach is sensitive to your unique needs. I emphasize on solution focused and Cognitive Behavioral therapy. I believe that we have the power in making a difference in our own life. However, at times we feel overwhelmed by our thoughts, and emotions , and feel helpless, angry, anxious, and sad. You are not alone. Together we can make a difference and you can regain your power back.
Infertility treatments takes a toll on the emotional well-being of women . The women receiving hormonal treatments and undergoing IVF and intrauterine insemination are faced with an array of emotions varying from guilt, shame, depression, and disappointments. I use both my professional and my personal experience to help you process the emotions.
In working with couples I focus on the emotions and communication styles. Often couples argue not understanding their own deeper emotions and needs. Together we will adapt a healthier communication style and learn to use effective conflict resolution in order to restore peace. I am bilingual in English and Farsi.

Professional Connections

The most accurate way to describe the kind work and the kind of work Terry does, is in the authentic description of Healer. A healer does not heal you A healer is a someone who holds space for you while you awaken your inner healer, so the you may heal yourself.
