More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 20
State: IL

I have been working in Behavioral Health for over 20 years. I received my undergraduate degree and Master of Social Work degree from the University of Illinois. Since then I have primarily treated issues such as suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety, and trauma history. My style is warm and supportive. I see myself as your tour guide as we navigate through the issues you want to work on.

Being a social worker, I believe that the change has to happen both within a person and in their environment. I focus on capitalizing on existing strengths, or building new ones. I use a lot of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which primarily means that we learn how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected and how to deal with that. I try to help a person get to the core of where their anxiety derives from in order to quiet the body and the mind.

My newest area of passion is trauma. We have all been through “stuff” and often we minimize the effects of that in our lives. However with my knowledge of how trauma affects our brain and therefore our moods and behaviors, I can assist you in coming at things from a direction you might not have thought of in the past.

Please note: while I will provide assistance, guidance, and support, this is YOUR therapy and you should expect to do most of the talking :) My style is reflective with gentle nudging, and a dash of humor :) I look forward to working with you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

She's amazing

J.A.·May 30, 2021


Terra is a wonderful therapist. She listens well and is so validating, understanding, and completely non-judgemental. She has helped me in ways both big and small. She continues to offer the help I need each week as I trudge through developmental trauma and abuse.

S.H.·May 21, 2021


Terra does a great job of listening.

E.M.·May 03, 2021

Terra has been invaluable to me. I don't know how to review therapists, but I trust her. She understands me. I never feel judged. I know she cares about my well being. I feel like I got lucky getting matched with her.

J.O.·Feb 25, 2021


She is an amazing therapist.

J.A.·Jan 25, 2021


I had a therapist of 5 years, and was scared to find a new one when they moved offices . I have had a few unsuccessful matchings in the interim, but finally feel like I have a great match with Terra. She listens, and validates me, while also helping me see a new perspective, offers me new tools/ information/ techniques, and remembers details about our sessions. She is kind, and gentle, and I can tell she cares. I’m so thankful to have a good therapist today.

K.E.·Jan 25, 2021


Terra listens closely to me and responds thoughtfully. I can tell she genuinely wants to help me accomplish my goals. She asks questions about my family and my specific situation because she remembers and she cares. I took a break from BetterHelp, but made sure that when I came back she was my therapist again. I highly recommend Terra.

K.I.·Jan 03, 2021


Wonderful and supportive

M.A.·Nov 08, 2020


I have been working with Terra for close to a month. I have seen therapists before and my past trauma had been hard for them to handle. I found myself having to water down my past which delayed my healing and working through my past. Terra let’s me vent however much I’m comfortable and doesn’t seem to be offended or disturbed by the things I’ve been through. This has helped me to recognize and see that maybe I will be able to work through my traumas and be able to not have them affect my future the way they have been! I’m grateful for her and her very caring and listening nature. She also isn’t just a “that sounds hard!” Type therapist, I like that she gives me tips and tricks to better work through my issues in and out of sessions!

S.H.·Oct 22, 2020


She has been the best. She listens and responds and really pays attention to what's going on with me. I truly appreciate her sweetness. So happy to have her. Shes one of a kind!!!

P.A.·Sep 10, 2020


Terra is extremely knowledgeable and has a wide range of techniques to get to the root of the problem and provide support where you need it most. She's super accessible and a great therapist!

R.Y.·Sep 08, 2020


Terra is great. She is attentive, respectful and she creates a judgment free environment for therapy. I have only been working with her for a couple weeks now but she has provided me with the tools to help myself get out from some of my more 'dark places'. I look forward to working with her long-term and, with her guidance, I am confident that I will get a handle on some of my more destructive thoughts. I highly recommend working with Terra!!

C.O.·May 07, 2020


Terra helps me walk through the toughest parts of facing myself to the point of tears. I’m a good way for release of emotion. She helps keep recognize when I’m going too far “ down the rabbit hole” of irrational thinking. If you want to do the tough work, Terra helps you do that for the path to speaking up for yourself if you struggle with self advocacy. I plan to continue working with her!

S.A.·Apr 17, 2020


I like that Terra is responsive to my needs and follows my lead. For instance, I requested that she checks in with me about once a week, Unless I indicate I need more help. I find her feedback helpful. I mostly need someone to bounce my thoughts and feelings off of and she is providing this well. I feel she "gets" me.

A.N.·Mar 24, 2020


Terra is an excellent therapist. She is very intuitive and aware of her client’s mood states and needs. She has helped me tremendously throughout the time I have been working with her.

N.I.·Mar 04, 2020


I feel confident in her, that she listens, and that maybe she can help me untangle the way that I’m feeling. I look forward to continuing.

G.U.·Feb 15, 2020


Terra provided thoughtful advice and a rational perspective at a time when I need both in extra supply. She walked a line between listener and guide that is delicate, knowing what was needed when. She broached tough topics with sensitivity and past personal context when helpful. I’m very grateful for her time, as she made one of the most challenging moments of my life less painful.

W.A.·Jan 20, 2020


Terra is very responsive and is helping me through my issues. I would recommend her to a friend.

S.A.·Dec 16, 2019


Terra is very kind and always makes sure to get back to me. She’s compassionate and very easy to talk to.

M.E.·Nov 27, 2019


Terra is quite amazing at what she does! You can definitely tell she cares. Great therapist! Easy to talk to and comfortably/honestly open up. If there’s a way to help you, she wants to help find it!

J.U.·Nov 27, 2019


Terra is great at her job and it's clear she cares and wants you to get better.

D.Y.·Nov 02, 2019


Terra is an excellent therapist. She is compassionate, very insightful, an extremely good communicator and she thinks creatively about ways to solve issues. I am really thankful I was paired with her and feel that I am making a lot of progress on my issues as a result of her encouragement and clear guidance. Her suggestions and questions have been so right on every time. I love her style of working with clients.

N.I.·Aug 29, 2019


Terra has made me feel heard in a reasonable timeframe and balances the communications based on what I need. In only a few weeks, I've opened up and feel as if a HUGE weight has already been lifted. I highly recommend her and the site.

K.A.·Jul 16, 2019


I am so glad I found Terra. She really seems to know how to help people and she listens!! I have had counseling for years but it seems different with Terra so I’m hopeful she can help me learn how to deal with my anxiety and depression!

B.R.·Jun 27, 2019


Very open and helps me to communicate and find a solution. Very caring and works hard to help me self -reflect and self-regulate

J.U.·Mar 12, 2019


Terra is fantastic. She understands what the issues are often before I do and sees things in a way I might not, and she brings a level of experience and expertise to the table. She is available and can relate. She has been immensely helpful in ways I cannot put into words. .

S.T.·Dec 30, 2018


Terra has helped me explore ways to change my current situation and come to realizations about things I am confused with and need help with. She is a genuine person and is really helpful! I highly recommend her to anyone.
