Mental Health & Relationship Therapist

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step – Lao Tzu, The question is, do you wander until you are confused, directionless, hopeless- or do you look for a guide with experience who will share and teach what they have learned? I’m here, I’m ready… Let’s GO!” 

Terry is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and has been providing mental health services for over 25 years. He has worked in hospitals, prisons, and foster care. For 12 years Terry owned a private mental health practice in Missouri, and relocated to Northwest Arkansas three years ago.

Terry’s experiences as a Vietnam veteran started him on a journey through a variety of life changes. His experiences included aviation, construction, and entrepreneurship, leading him eventually to a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Kansas. He enjoys guiding people to happier lives as they more effectively cope with stress, anxiety and depression, create healthier relationships, or successfully adjust to unexpected change. Terry embraces the unconventional and nontraditional uniqueness of the human experience. There are no cookie-cutter people or solutions. Terry incorporates theories of attachment, mindfulness, and positive psychology to assist clients in developing cognitive and emotional skills for growth. The need to successfully navigate life’s challenges is something we all have in common.

Terry enjoys the splendor of Northwest Arkansas, hiking the trails and taking long walks with his wife in beautiful places around the area. He is an ardent enthusiast of wildlife photography. He also enjoys woodworking, landscaping, and home-improvement projects.
