About me

Hi, I’m Annette Thomas, owner, and operator of Heal and Restore, PLLC

My treatment method is to aid in progress and provide feedback to help clients address current life challenges. My priority is to listen, understand and design therapy around my client’s needs. I believe the foundation of success in therapy is based on the creation of the relationship between client and therapist. My priority is to help individuals find resolution to a wide range of personal concerns and psychological issues. My goal is to make sure each person feels comfortable, heard, understood, and is working toward healing.
