TERI WOOD, MA LMHC
I believe that all persons have the basic right to be heard. We all have experiences that make up who we are, some of which we may need or wish to explore further or heal from. Together in counseling we can create a safe place to work toward agreed upon goals. Along my path as a clinical mental health therapist, I found a hidden passion in working with children, toddlers and those in early childhood. I see adolescents and adults. LGBTQ+ friendly. I have years of experience in working with people disagnosed with developmental different abilities. Individual, couples, family and group work available. Regarding our professional journey, while I am happy to work with people that would like brief therapy, I am particularly interested in those that wish to work deeper and possibly over a longer period of time. The length of healing journeys vary.
My practice is eclectic in nature. I view counseling work through a systemic lens; we are part of a whole system. While working with me, you may note I borrow techniques from Play Therapy, Art Therapy, what many refer to as talk therapy, Animal Assisted Therapy, Sand Tray, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, and more. I am credentialed mental health specialist in Children, Minority (Native American), and and Developmentally Disabled (Hearing Impaired) populations.
