Terri's Core Beliefs

Body-Based Practice is Core to Thriving and Resilience

The ability to remain calm and grounded in the midst of chaos is key to agility and navigating change.  We incorporate mindfulness exercises to support you in developing these inner states.

Creativity Emerges in Working With Self-As-Process

Our stories keep us hidden.  When we work with imagery, symbols, and color, we are able to go deeper within ourselves than words alone allow.

Resistance Ends, Where Self-Acceptance Begins

Much of our lives are judged by our performance.  This performance mode can lead to hiding apsects of ourselves we deem unacceptable.  When we begin to accept all our parts, our struggle lessens.
