More than three decades ago, Dr. Terri began helping students, families, schools, churches, and community-based organizations with their higher education concerns. Then in 1993, she founded Mindset as a solo private practice located in the central New Jersey area. Since its founding, Dr. Terri has sought to create and maintain a positive climate for clients to engage in conversational learning; and to attain a more satisfactory lifestyle within their everyday lived experiences.
In more recent years, Dr. Terri saw a rise in adults seeking her assistance. Many of them were looking to pursue their education and/or career goals after years of putting their dreams on hold. As a result, she became increasingly involved with adult populations and issues related to self-perception, social influence, career transitions, romantic relationships, sensemaking, and decision-making--all of which led to her being the educator, empowerment writer, and entrepreneur she is today.
