Angie Terhorst

LMFT, Clinical Supervisor

Bio

Angie believes life is full of wonderful and sometimes difficult or painful experiences, and during painful seasons we can get stuck. Many times, trauma or past wounds can hold us back from moving forward or functioning in life. Sometimes taking the first step requires great courage. Angie feels honored to be part of people’s journey to change and restore hope.

One of Angie’s greatest rewards as a therapist is helping clients explore ways to make changes in their lives that will allow them to look forward to the future with hope and live fully in the present. Angie believes we all need someone to talk with, who will really listen and accept us as we are, without judgement. She provides clients with a warm, non-judgmental environment; a safe place to explore the issues that may be preventing them from living the life they want. She has a heart for helping others find deeper meaning and a sense of purpose. Angie uses evidence supported treatment to help clients be successful and to implement changes they so desire. Her clinical experience includes using various therapeutic modalities such as CBT, DBT, TF-CBT, CPT, attachment-based therapy, mindfulness skills, and neuroscience to better understand the parent-child relationship and the connection to thoughts and behaviors, as well as play therapy techniques, and sand tray play therapy.

Her experience includes working extensively with small children, children and adults with autism, both verbal and nonverbal, teens, young adults, adults, older adults, couples, and families. She considers herself fortunate to be working with people as they move toward growth and healing. Some of the issues she works with are depression, anxiety, mood disorders, identity, parenting issues, family systems, communication, pregnancy, postpartum issues, grief/loss and trauma & abuse. Angie has an extensive background working with children living in group homes, foster care, and post adoption. She has training and experience working with critical incident debriefing and stress management.

Angie graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration/Human Resource Management from Simpson University in 2002 and obtained a Master of Art in Counseling Psychology from National University San Diego in 2005. She obtained licensure as a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist (LMFT) in 2010. She has further formal education from Florida Institute of Technology towards becoming a Board Certified Behavioral Analyst (BCBA), thus far has completed the basic series and is working on completing additional coursework for certification. She earned her clinical experience working with “at-risk youth” in group home settings and juvenile hall. She is an expert in treating juvenile sex offending, attachment and trauma. Additionally, she has extensive experience and knowledge with school age children on school campuses, and has worked with individuals, parents, couples, and families within different employment capacities such as an outpatient nonprofit practice, county mental health system and a Christian based counseling agency. Prior to her current position she was the Licensed Clinical Supervisor of all children’s mental health services in Tehama County, where she worked collaboratively with the state and various other community organizations ensuring children’s needs and services were being met.

Angie is dually licensed by both California Board of Behavioral Sciences and Oregon State Board of Licensed Therapists and Counselors as a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist (LMFT). She has been approved by the Board of Behavioral Sciences in California to provide supervision and training for therapists and counselors pursuing their clinical licensure.
