I have been in private practice for 11 years, with 9 years being licensed as a professional counselor. I have had over 40 years experience working in the health care field, which includes time as an administrator for 7 years, and as a paraprofessional for 29 years working directly with clients who were developmentally disabled, had traumatic brain injuries, mental health issues, and substance abuse issues. I currently am specializing with clients who have substance abuse issues , mental health issues, co-occurring issues, relationship problems and sexual concerns. I am pre-certified in sex therapy as well. I am currently a nationally certified counselor as well.
My clients are approached with a integrated approach including Adlerian, person centered, solution focused approaches that attempt to assist clients with identifying under lying issues that may be causing or exacerbating their presenting problems. I assist clients with developing a plan on how to deal with their presenting issues that will hopefully lead them to learning what got them to where they are and how to resolve these issues going forward. I have many clients who have stated that this approach has helped them grow as a person or their relationship has gotten stronger.

Tom has been very friendly and transparent and has made me feel comfortable discussing tricky subjects. He seems more like a friend than a therapist which is nice. I really appreciate his help.
