My professional life has been dedicated to the easing of psychological suffering, particularly the suffering caused by the ravages of depression, anxiety, trauma, personality disorders, and addiction. Our personalities can be badly damaged by early traumas and disrupted early attachments, and addictions, large and small, are typically our desperate methods of coping with the pain. I tend to use cognitive, behavioral, dynamic, humanistic and existential methods to support people through the difficult process of healing and growth, and I frequently draw upon various spiritual insights and methods to support my psychological interventions. My goal is to bring to bear any and all resources I can to help you move closer to the life you were created for.

Dr. Thompson has been an excellent counselor. He validated my feelings and helped me come up with strategies for battling my depression and anxieties. He was always very friendly and respectful.
Dr . Thompson and I had our first session. I was extremely impressed. He got straight to business with me and was very considerate of my time. I also really enjoyed his very relevant scientific explanations. It was all very insightful. I did not want to do counseling before (in general), but after meeting him, I definitely look forward to doing more sessions. Thank you Dr. Thompson!
We just started but he has made me feel listened to and validated. I think I will be able to continue to learn and grow with his help.
Dr. Thompson is friendly and wise, able to explain why my problems function the way they do, which is a huge help in tackling them actively.
