About me

I am an individual and couples counselor licensed in Indiana with over 23 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, sexuality issues, career issues, couples, veterans issues, and Borderline Personality Disorder. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I also believe in being very frank and honest with my clients. I am that therapist that will challenge you and you will never be bored or underwhelmed while in session with me. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, solution focused, brief, and narrative therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. If for whatever reason you feel that I am not a good match for you, be assured that I will make every effort to find you that connection.

I look forward to working with you!

David, AKA Tom, came into my life at the perfect time. Like many people probably are, I was extremely hesitant to start therapy, for no other reason other than my preconceived notions of it. Within one session, I not only knew I had made the right decision to start, but I knew I got extremely lucky in being matched with Tom. He listens, speaks and provides his honest opinion in a way that is both direct, yet compassionate. In many ways, talking to him has been like making a new friend, which is exactly what I needed. Thank you, Tom, and I look forward to our continued sessions.

Hands down a wonderful person who has my best interest in heart. Good guy to speak with and great doctor to heal with. He has helped me over one several challenges in life and will greatly miss ok ur conversations when I no longer need therapy.

David has been incredibly helpful to me and the issues I've been working through. He has a friendly, disarming demeanor that makes for easy conversation even when digging into difficult topics.
