I got help from Terry Cline of DwellRight. He is a genius at creating an arrangement that fits how you want to feel in the space, and how you want people to interact.
It’s more astounding than I can describe in words. This will sound crazy but I’ve sent 3 people to him and we’re all still talking about the impact. It’s mind-blowing.
One person said the new home arrangement is changing the dynamics in her relationships at home. Isn’t that wild? I’m starting to sound like an ad so I’ll stop.

A Passion for Design, Consulting & Pubic Speaking
Hey! I’M TERRY
An entrepreneur, spacebehavior architect, coach, public/keynote presenter & optimist dedicated to helping you achieve your personal and business goals!
A born-and-raised Hoosier guy with passion, ambition and a dream to support people’s dreams through the effective use of their personal environments; demonstrating how architecture can be a health resource for everyone. I’m proud to have created a SpaceBehavior approach to architecture that has touched hundreds.
One of the things I’m often asked is “How did I get started in all this?”
My career and interest in place and space emerged in boyhood with the making of forts and tree houses. Setting aside my artistic talents and a college business major, I drifted into architecture followed with an interest in counseling, all of which evolved into SpaceBehavior Design and Consulting (a.k.a. SpaceTherapy®). Using primarily existing spaces and furnishings, or renovations, additions and new construction, I am honored to have helped hundreds of satisfied residential and business clients co-create environments that truly support their goals for self, family, business and beyond.
With satellite offices in Northampton, MA; Portland, ME; and Los Angeles, CA, I live in a renovated 1760s farmhouse, Blue Sky Farm, on East Hill in Central MA. Cohabiting with the-woman-who-is-with me; our bright, hansom, musically talented teenage son; a raw-milk cow; a very friendly bernese mountain dog; and, on occasion, a hungry owl or fox looking for chickens. I’m also blessed with four bright, spirited and beautiful adult daughters. See more here.
