She also has extensive certifications and experience in holistic medicinal practices.  She is a writer and speaker, and maintains a nationally read blog and widely broadcast radio presence.

Through her practice she has developed a proprietary methodology that blends the latest in cutting-edge science, epigenetics, bio mechanics, observation, listening, and nutrition to create bio-individualized plans for our clients.  She has helped thousands of people get their lives back who had previously faced auto-immune and chronic conditions, Lyme disease, diabetes, Hashimoto’s, cancer, digestive disorders, food allergies, hormone imbalances, infertility, weight management challenges, depression, anxiety, and many other health conditions.  

Her practice has uncovered that most chronic and autoimmune health conditions are rooted in pathogens. Using Teri's methodology, clients reestablish their individual truth, thereby re-establishing their health. She calls this The True of You.  Teri is currently in private practice in the Metro DC area.
