What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. I'm excited to get the opportunity to work with you! Here are a few things you may need to know before your first appointment. If you choose to do a virtual appointment, you must be residing in North Carolina, which is the state in which I am licensed to provide services. This is not a concern if you are choosing to come in person for appointments. If you are seeking play therapy for a child, this is provided in person only due to the nature of the way service is provided, making it a service that does not lend itself to virtual appointments. This is not a concern for traditional talk therapy with adults, which can be provided virtually.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Terryn Maher is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor with over 10 years of experience working in enhanced levels of mental health care. She is passionate about helping young children who have been through trauma or major life changes utilizing play therapy, as well as adults who have identified issues that they find impact their everyday lives, relationships, and ability to parent in a healthy way. Terryn specializes in trauma-related issues, mood disorders, adjustment disorders, and anxiety disorders. Terryn completed her Master of Arts in Community Counseling at the University of North Carolina - Charlotte. In addition to her MA, she also completed a graduate certificate in play therapy, a specialized therapeutic approach often utilized for children in the 2.5 to 10-year-old range who may not be able to verbalize and process their issues utilizing traditional talk therapy, due to developmental understanding. Terryn has also completed multiple trauma-related trainings to become a certified clinical trauma professional (CCTP), allowing her to provide trauma-informed care to all of her clients. Terryn utilizes multiple treatment approaches with adults to fit their needs including mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and client/person-centered therapy. While our society has come a long way in destigmatizing mental health needs, Terryn understands it can still be difficult to make that first step and reach out for assistance and strives to make her clients feel as comfortable as they can with the therapeutic process. Terryn also understands how difficult it can be to find the right clinician to help guide you through the therapeutic process. Terryn is willing to work alongside you in your therapeutic journey and meet you where you are at, while also providing the insight and coping strategies you need to grow and heal. If you are ready to start, or even continue, your therapeutic journey, schedule an appointment with Terryn.
