Terri has mentored under Barbara Ford for a number of years. During this time she has really honed her skills as a world class psychic and medium. Terri is comfortable with answering specific questions you may have in your reading, or provide intuitive message if you wish. She is also very skilled with connecting to your loved ones who have passed away, and sharing information that may prove to be healing and comforting.
Terri has spent a lot of her life as a healer. As a Pharmacist for over 30 years, she has learned how modern medicine works and how it affects the body (any body). She has translated this experience into her Reiki practice and has a fundamental knowledge and understanding of the most elemental component of the human structure - its energy.
“We are powered by energy; we use it, we feel it and we emit it.”
Terri has a calming welcoming energy that creates the perfect atmosphere for her sessions. Its important to her to always be free of judgement with the intent of helping to create an opportunity for healing.
