My Approach to Helping
We all need to be heard. This is the premise of counseling with Teri. She works with ages 5 - 60. Teri offers an opportunity for a safe place to be developed between clients and counselor, a place where a working relationship is the foundation in which the client establishes goals to strive for. Teri believes that the Attachment lens is a basic consideration for all. For those who were pre-verbal in their experiences, or are non-verbal their stories need to be shared also.
If you chose counseling with Teri, you may experience techniques borrowed from Play-Therapy, Art-Therapy, Animal-Assisted-Therapy, Sand Tray, more traditional talk therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, PTSD trauma work, behavioral, Family of Origin work as well as being mindful of the here and now. Teri has been a Minority Mental Health Specialist and a Disability Mental Health Specialist for many years. LGBTQ+ respected. Individual, parenting, family work, and group work are services also offered.
Please feel free to contact me for a phone meet and greet of 10 minutes with any questions you may have.
Teri extensively studied Deaf culture & ASL at Seattle Central, post-graduate Infant Mental Health certificate at the University of Washington and eagerly participates in numerous annual trainings for the work she does with clients and her continuing education.
