Couples and Family Therapist- Terri Ammirati


“I love to witness people who courageously make difficult changes in their lives.”


Ammirati Counseling is a group of relational therapists who help individuals, couples, and families overcome their personal challenges.

At our counseling group I help
  • Family members enhance their relationship and communication with each other.
  • Individuals seeking growth with challenges in their lives.
  • And I help couples manage conflict, deepen friendship and improve their intimacy.

Family and Individual Therapy

Terri founded her relational counseling group to help families, couples, and individuals because she noticed a big gap that needed to be filled. She provides “Collaborative Care” which means your family counseling can be done in one place…with the utmost privacy and care.

Terri is a family therapist who helps family members to heal from anxiety disorders, mood disorders, grief, loss, and trauma.

Couples Therapy

In her practice, Terri uses the Gottman Method Couples Therapy. In your sessions with Terri you learn ways to manage conflicts, how to improve communication with your partner, and paths to heal from past hurts. She helps couples with issues relating to trust and feelings of betrayal.

Terri began her career as a special education teacher in the public schools on Long Island, New York. She has a master’s in Education with an emphasis on ADHD and helping people with learning disabilities. She also has a master’s degree in Psychology with an emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy from Wheaton College.

After graduating from Wheaton College, Terri worked with families at various agencies. She had the opportunity to help families with reunification and parenting issues. Afterwards, She worked in a group practice before opening her own successful private practice that she ran for over 20 years.

After she’d been practicing for over 10 years, Terri realized she was limited in her training to help couples improve the quality of their relationships. So, she sought out additional training from Drs. John and Julie Gottman in Seattle and entered the certification track a few years later.

As a Certified Gottman Therapist, Terri has had the opportunity to witness first hand–with the many couples she has worked with– how effective the Gottman method is with a wide range of issues couples experience.

In addition to her work Terri is very involved at her church and does what she can to make a positive impact on her community. She helps to provide meals for the homeless, and leads classes that help women experience growth.

Terri has many interests and hobbies outside of work. She enjoys working out, pickleball, sailing, swimming, working in her garden, traveling and live music events.

Do you want a better relationship with your partner?
Do you want to feel seen and heard?
Are you interested in minimizing conflict and removing barriers in conversations with your significant other?

If any of these questions resonate with you then speak with Terri about her couple’s therapy and intensives. Ask her about her Art and Science of Love Workshop which was developed by the Gottmans.

The workshop offers couples all the tools and skills to enhance your friendship and intimacy. At the end of the workshop you learn how to heal from past hurts and how to work through conflict.
