Professional statement

Dr. Terri A. Shaw is a United States Marine Corps War Veteran and tenured Associate Professor of Psychology at Indiana Tech. During her 12-year service at the University, she was influential in Founding and Chairing the first Diversity & Inclusion Faculty Senate Committee at the University. Dr. Shaw was also instrumental in serving as the advisor for the first student organization with a collective social consciousness focused on the inequities of underrepresented populations. Dr. Shaw is the CEO and founder of Victorious in Christ Counseling and Coaching Kingdom Services, a private practice, in which she functions as a holistic licensed mental health counselor and licensed marriage and family therapist. She is a person-centered clinician that specializes in trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, grief, ADHD, identity, and spiritual life purpose development. Dr. Shaw uses an integration of Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution-Focused, Family Therapy, and Spiritual Systems.

Dr. Shaw is thrilled to be a two times cancer conqueror, anxiety annihilator, trauma victor, faith fighter, and child-loss overcomer. She is an ordained minister and passionate equipping exhorter and ascribes her most enjoyable life assignment to being her family serving as a wife to her husband and mother to her children. Dr. Shaw attributes her successes in life to her strong faith, “others’ centered” values, and commitment to her motto: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).

In her clinical role, Dr. Shaw empowers her clients to maximize their potential for engaging in evidence-based positive coping skills that aid them in managing past, present, and future triggers to maladaptive thinking and behavior problems for peace-filled joyful living. She focuses on strength building and resiliency development. Clients are encouraged to be collaborative participators in their healing journeys through authentic reflections, completion of homework assignments, and active evaluation of goal progress.

Message to clients

Greetings Overcoming Warrior,

I’m delighted that you are courageously exploring the decision to move forward in your healing journey. Are you looking for a connection that doesn’t require for you to wear a brave face, but will welcome your transparency? An opportunity to have someone listen to what’s important to you with empathy and encouragement.

If you are looking to partner with a non-judgmental caring counselor who is compassionate and specializes in transformational insight-oriented breakthroughs, I’d love to join you in your restoration work. As a Victorious Overcomer, I know firsthand how challenging it can be to hurdle through personal, family, professional, physical, and even spiritual struggles from head and heart injuries you’ve experienced. I also know how to leverage these trials and tribulations into power that can help you triumphantly shift into peaceful and joyful living.

If you so graciously decide to connect with me, we’ll identify your root challenges, develop a strategy-tailored plan for growth, integrate your wellness values, and establish ongoing targeted homework for you to engage in to help accelerate and deepen your healing success for long-term results. It is my hope that at the end of our partnership you become your own therapist and pass on your successful results to others. I look forward to learning how we can start your catapult jump forward.

Blessings & Love,

Dr. Shaw
