“We are not what we think, or what we say, or how we feel. We are what we do” – Gordon Livingston

Terry is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with over a decade of experience working with adolescent and adult clients in residential and outpatient settings addressing a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. He earned his Masters of Science degrees in Community Counseling as well as Marriage and Family Therapy from John Brown University (Siloam Springs, AR).
 
Terry utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to empower clients to be mindful of unhelpful thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that often get in the way or become problematic to goals or desires. CBT is a practical theory that provides an action-oriented approach to psychotherapy by giving clients the power needed to move towards a more fulfilling life. He feels that these are necessary and impactful for people who are open and willing to discover what may be the right tools to get there. Terry practices empathy with clients and strives to “Be kind to those who suffer, and that is most people on most days”. He values the important work that clients do to overcome the difficulties of life; as a U.S. Navy veteran, he has learned that life is often difficult and that focusing on what can be controlled is vital to embracing a joyful life.
 
Terry has been married for 14 years and has 2 children. When not at work, he spends his time reading about history and philosophy, playing catch with his kids, fixing things, and enjoying his family. His favorite book is “Jayber Crow” by Wendell Berry and enjoys this quote by the same author, “Be joyful because it is humanly possible”.
