Terrie Haworth, MA, LPC
Degree: Masters of Clinical Mental Health Counseling, 2011
University: George Fox University
Certifications: Licensed Professional Counselor, Approved Clinical Supervisor- OBLPCT
Years Showing/Riding: I have been riding horses since age 8 and have enjoyed any opportunity I can incorporate them in my life.
Philosophy & Approach: I believe that the counseling process can facilitate change and more importantly, that we already have the solutions to change within us. The counseling process tends to highlight our unseen strengths that we can use to achieve our goals, by intentionally developing skills to be more present in our lives. I recognize the strength it takes to seek change and appreciate how the process can look different for everyone. In my approach, I also value the inclusion of family members in the counseling process if appropriate while also supporting individualized needs. I have a strong reliance on cognitive-behavioral and dialectical theories that I use in sessions to meet identified goals.

Philosophy & Approach: I believe that every individual has the capacity to heal and create change in their lives; therapy is simply a space in which the individual can focus on the journey of change. My approach is client-centered and strengths-based, as I believe that individuals naturally have a foundation of strengths and skills that can be built upon in a therapeutic setting. I am rooted in a holistic approach to therapy, which means I believe that there are often external and internal layers to life that may be addressed during treatment. My goal as the counselor is to create a safe and warm environment where the client is free to express themselves. I value diversity and inclusion in the therapeutic setting and hope to be seen as an advocate for my client.
