Terry’s Approach


Heart-Centered Integration of Body, Mind and Spirit. Both SpiritFirst Counselling and SpiritFirst Healing Touch focus on the bio-psychosocial-spiritual resources and obstacles affecting you.


ALL of us are hurt by an unjust society – women, children, and men. Terry is especially concerned with the healing of women and girls from social injustice, physical and sexual violence, emotional abuse and trauma.


Terry combines her extensive life experience with all SIX senses in her work in the Counselling Room and in the Healing Touch Treatment Room.


Terry believes that both ignorance and a fear of differences hurt people.  While she often works with heterosexual individuals, she is also completely at ease working with individuals in the LGBTQ community.

Inclusive also means she works with individuals of all ages and abilities (her practice is wheelchair accessible).

Spiritually Integrated

Terry offers spiritual strategies when this is appropriate for her clients.


Terry uses client-centered psychotherapy which focuses on relationship as the primary catalyst for change.


Terry offers solution-focused strategies for goal setting and change.
