Terry R. Waite

Terry was born and raised in Sacramento, CA and graduated from Troy State University in 1997. He has been working with children, teens, and families in crisis for over 20 years. He began his journey in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy in 2009. As a therapist and a human being, DBT has been a game changer for him. DBT skills have helped him provide a profound impact on those suffering the most.

The skills of Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotional Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness are more than just skills he teaches, they are skills he lives. The relationship between a DBT therapist and a client is a real and genuine relationship between equal partners. Every skill he teaches is one that he is willing to use or has used. He is passionate about his work and can usually be found reading books or browsing videos on DBT for enjoyment.
