I am licensed in Illinois with 10 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with trauma and abuse, anger management, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & bipolar disorder. My practice style is interactive with a strength-focused that involves active participation. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. “My practice hours are 3pm - 10pm Monday - Thursday, and 11am - 7pm Sunday. I generally can respond at least once per morning and once per evening, sometimes more! You can also book a live session with me ahead of time. Please remember that Better Help (or specialty site!) is not appropriate if you are in crisis or in immediate need of support. In crisis situations, please call 911 or local emergency services. You can also call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to talk to someone right away! I will check my messages several times a day Monday thru Sunday and I will reach to you within 24 hours. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.

Thomas is a great motivator
I have spoken with him for a short time but he has been great so far and listens to me.

Thomas is great. He listens and gives good advice would highly recommend
When I first me Mr. Buckner it felt like I was speaking to a long time friend. In my first session I felt very comfortable.
Great listener, however, needs to understand the persons individual issue rather than the sum of its parts
