    Terry is known as the most empathic member of our therapists. Terry is not only caring – but she is a competent therapist who loves working with couples and families (and individuals of course!). Terry is very popular among the clients at RTC due to her gift in transforming difficult situations into opportunities for intimacy. Her clients call her “empathic, humorous, and kind”.

    She has intensive training in Terry Real’s Relational Life Therapy, as well as the Gottman Method. Terry has a passion for working with couples in Intensive Couples Counseling – especially around crisis, affairs, and betrayals. She is well known for “Healing the Hurt“.
