Terri Thomas


About Me

My name is Terri Thomas I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of California. I started my practice in community residential treatments centers for addiction in the state of California gaining perspective and understanding of how poverty, addiction and trauma impact the family dynamic and individual functioning. Experience also includes adoption, county social service work, CPS, methadone replacement clinic counseling and extensive supervision of other therapists for community behavioral health clinics and agencies. I have also built a successful private practice in Clovis, CA. Working with families and individuals who have experienced anxiety, depression, abuse/neglect, parenting difficulties, addiction, stress, loss, and the frustrations of life, are just a few areas of emphasis.

I would describe my approach as empathetic, goal oriented, and client centered. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-focused therapy, Existential theory and Motivational Interviewing to promote growth, work through trauma, and increase empowerment.

I earned my Master’s degree from California State University, Fresno in Marriage and Family Therapy.

I look forward to talking with you.

She is great about listening, getting the clients story, and providing sources, cooing skills, and communication methods related to the client's issue.
