Terry Rivera

Hello and welcome to our practice.  While on the path to MFT licensure, as an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, I am able to offer counseling services at a lower fee than many licensed psychotherapists.  I am in my third year of being supervised by Doug and we are aligned in our ideas about how best to help clients lead authentic and meaningful lives.  In addition to our shared interest in an Existential-Humanistic approach to psychotherapy, we operate from an Attachment-based, Developmental approach when working with parents, children, and teens.

I received a B.A. in Sociology from the University of California, San Diego and an M.A. in Counseling from Sonoma State University.  Since January 2015, my main experience and training has been in providing therapy for individual adults dealing with relational challenges, depression, anxiety and grief. I also have experience and training in working with couples, youth and families. 

The bulk of my experience has been gained in working as a pre-licensed counselor at FamilyWorks Agency in San Rafael. Along with working with adults, children and families, this included working one day a week for a year as a counselor in the Wellness Center at Redwood High School.  I also have experience doing school counseling for elementary school-aged children, which helps broaden and deepen my understanding of child development and aids me in providing parents with parenting support.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me for a free 15-minute phone consultation. You can reach me at 415-810-4510.
