About me

I have extensive experience with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), anxiety, relationship issues, depression and substance abuse issues. I work with clients to find workable solutions to what brings you to counseling. Clients usually see me for three to six sessions on average.
I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you identify how your thoughts can impact your feelings and behaviors. I will work closely with you to resolve your issues in a prompt and caring manner.
I am licensed as a marriage & family therapist and clinical social worker. Additionally, I am a certified substance abuse counselor. I bring over 30 years of clinical experience from across the country. I will tailor my practice to your specific needs. One size does not fit all.

He is a great guy and is really good at helping me understand things and bringing it down to my level. Super down to earth I had a rough go finding a councillor I could connect with but once I found Thomas it’s been great

I have only had a few sessions so far but I feel that I have worked through so much more than I did with my previous therapist. He explains things in way that I can really grasp and he has pointed out progress that I did realize I was making.
