"Terri has helped me over the course of several years to deal with the death of my husband at a young age. She is direct when she needs to be and holds you accountable. If you are willing to do the work, she is an incredible woman to work with. The journey is not easy and, at times, you will not want to go but, in the end, you become what you want to be. Terri is knowledgeable, caring and flexible and, most of all, a valuable resource."
"Our marriage and relationship benefited greatly from our time with Terri. When we started with Terri, we were at the lowest point of our relationship. She helped us learn to talk through our issues without defensiveness or unfair criticism, and got us to a point where we both felt that our needs were listened to, understood, and considered. With her counseling and guidance, our relationship is on much better ground today."
"Before my husband and I started seeing Terri, we were having significant communication issues and weren't sure if we were going to be able to work through them. After doing some research, we decided we wanted a therapist who practiced the Gottman method. From the very beginning, we were confident we made the right choice by choosing Terri to help us. She is not afraid to speak up while guiding you through your issues; which we knew we needed. Although it took time and hard work, my husband and I were seeing improvements in the way we were understanding each other by using the methods Terri taught us. Now, we are communicating better than ever! I can confidently say my husband and I would not be as happy as we are right now without having met Terri. Thank you for getting us to where we are!"
"At some point in our lives, we all need a place to turn for guidance. I'm a human resources professional and typically, I'm the person many turn to. But I'm no different from so many others and I need support too. I was fortunate that my employer offered an EAP (employee assistance program). So when I reached out for help, I was connected with Terri Ammirati. Finally, I found someone who could help me! Terri guided me to take back some control in my life that I had gradually lost through the years. Parts of me had chipped away without me even being conscious of it. For so long, I had focused my life on raising children, building a career and a marriage. The children are now grown with lives of their own. My career goals were reached. But my marriage and self-esteem suffered. With her help, my state of mind changed for the better and I was able to return to the person I had once been and wanted back. My marriage is better, my self-esteem is back and I'm not afraid to be myself. I highly recommend Terri and I am so very grateful for her guidance."
"Terri's perspective and feedback have been beyond helpful in managing my triggers and stressors. Her "big picture" approach allows me greater understanding of why certain things are issues. She is able to look beyond the present issue and relate it back to other people or situations in my past. Her empathetic directness is invaluable as I can walk away from each session with something to consider and work on. I do not feel like I am being my own therapist and talking to empty space with Terri."
"The Gottman Method has been very effective in helping my spouse and me to communicate effectively. Terri Ammirati is a therapist who is well-trained in the Gottman Method. With her guidance, we are learning techniques that are improving our marriage now and for the future."
"Terri Ammirati is a true professional and a genuinely decent human being. I started seeing Terri for therapy about a year ago because of my anxiety and depression. Not only has Terri helped me manage my anxiety and depression, but she has influenced me to become an overall more confident and happier person. She is very accommodating of my schedule and considerate of my time and feelings. Terri melds the professional competence of a psychotherapist at the top of her field with Christian compassion without compromise. Although always considerate, she certainly doesn't always agree with me. Nor does she simply tell me what I want to hear. In short, Terri is no mere 'yes man." She suggests, guides, challenges, and inspires me to become the best version of myself. I would highly recommend her services to friends and family. My only regret is that I didn't start seeing her sooner."
