About me

Hello and thank you for checking out my profile!

I'm Terry Massey (Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Forensic Psychotherapist). Through Couples work, we can help you Create the Conditions for Change in your relationship with your partner for stronger growth, satisfaction and interpersonal understanding. I have over 20 years of experience working with individuals and couples to improve their relationships with those closest to them emotionally. I enjoy helping others gain insight into their interpersonal challenges and create more positive and meaningful exchanges with others.

I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship between the psychotherapist and the client is a partnership through which the conditions for change are created in a holistic environment. I use multiple approaches to help a client system make a connection to their own strengths that will give them the resources to meet their challenges with more success. I am a firm believer in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, and I especially love working with systems from the Experiential and Existential approaches to psychotherapy. I believe that change is constant and should be embraced and as we reinvent ourselves in healthy ways, we re-create our lives. As we re-create our lives, we learn to respect and embrace change to continually reinvent ourselves. It's an awesome cycle, isn’t? That is my concept of healthy movement in human development. In essence, my approach to providing services is for the client to eventually not "need" me, but for them to move through the change process where I can transition from being the "emergency mechanic" to the "tune up guy".

Stress, Anxiety

We are just a few session in with Terry. So far we have no reason to question his intentions, professionalism, advice, and experience. Terry is down to earth and easy to talk too. We look forward to continuing our sessions with Terry, I am confident enough to continue booking 3 weeks in advance. Thank you Terry.

Terry is great! He's been patient and understanding with us and he keeps it 100 all the time. He does not mince his words and that's exactly what we love about him... We have benefited so much from the exercises he asks us to do outside of therapy hours. His approach to the sessions makes them enjoyable and it feels like talking to an old friend who is supportive and gives great, life changing advice.

My wife and I seemed to gel with Terry as soon as we met with him in camera.

He’s friendly, listens well, comes up with good answers and also makes good suggestions for some homework in between sessions.

I’d recommend him 100%.

Terry is the best! He's easy to talk to and I never feel like he's picking sides. He helps us see the faults in ourselves so we can love one another better

I have been speaking with Terry for almost 3 months now.
I have gotten a lot for this and his positive out looks on different situations.
It’s nice to be able to have a Couselor that you can relate with and that is down to earth and realistic

The thought of therapy makes me somewhat nervous...having to actually talk and discuss and bring issues that I am having to the forefront. Terry is extremely inviting, and has a way of making me feel at ease and not stressed giving me the ability to talk about these issues. He is very knowledgeable and really makes me think.
