I am a motivated, hard working counselor who will create an awareness for you of what may be happening in your life, based on your words, and OUR interpretation. I believe that every situation has a solution and I am willing to listen and work with you to get there. My style is empathetic, caring, and sometimes confrontational in order to show you that I truly care about what we are doing and how important it is to take our steps seriously. OUR work is important, so I expect that we both take the steps to a better you.
I graduated from Texas A&M-Commerce with a Masters Degree (MS) in Counseling with an emphasis on family and grief. I enjoy singing, watching old movies, and listening to music, as I feel they are the doorways to some of our best memories and possible answers to our issues.

Tom has helped me discover my own power. The ability to support myself, others, and the passion I have for my work and charity. Through some extreme moments, I’m learning to stay grounded and lift what I can at a time. These are gifts that I’m so excited to receive and share! Thank you!
Tom is very consistent and helps me to work my way through what I’m feeling. He will give examples to help me understand myself. He regularly check’s in between sessions to ask how I’m doing and always responds when I use text. If I’m struggling he will remind me of what I already know about the situation and how I should use that information to move past the struggle.
I highly recommend Tom . We worked together for a short time, but I found our sessions very effective. I was hesitant at first to open up, but Tom made me feel comfortable and I really felt like my thoughts were respected.
I learned invaluable tools and insights that has helped my communication skills, self-esteem, and relationship issues. Even though my future remains ambiguous, I now feel more comfortable and confident in the face of uncertainty. Thank you Tom!
Tom is probably one of the best therapists I’ve had on better help. He’s got a tough love approach which I need. He’s very good at getting to the root cause of the problem without wasting your time. He gets me!
Mr. Geressy helped me through my early stages of my separation. He was honest, truthful and told me what I needed to hear. Never once did I doubt his intentions or his opinions. I learned a lot about myself and the situation I was in and will remember everything he taught me in future relationships. Would recommend 100% thank you Mr Geressy!
Great counselor help me deal with a lot of my issues helped me work through them And see things in a different way extremely helpful thank you for all of your help.
Thomas is open and authentic. No judgement, just solid advice.
Thomas has been very encouraging and supportive. In our short time together, he’s understood dynamics in some of my very personal relationships. Would recommend 100%.
Thomas is a wonderful counselor and I have been helped so much by him he truly will change you life
I found Thomas to be exactly what I needed.
We worked on the tools that helped me cope with stressors in my life. I have a complicated job and Thomas was able to distill to what was relevant in the job so I didn't spend all my time explaining it but instead on what was causing my stress and hardship. Coming out of this, I'm not just happier but better equipped with tools to cope with stress and enjoy challenges again.
In our short time together, Tom had already proven himself to be a fantastic listener and confidant. This is my first experience with therapy or counseling of any kind, and Tom has gone above and beyond to make sure that I have felt comfortable every step of the way. In just our first session together, he was able to make some insightful suggestions about my behavior patterns as well as give me some actionable steps towards beginning to replace negative behaviors. I am already so impressed and can’t wait to see what our future sessions will do for my overall mental health. I would recommend him to anyone who is struggling with the issues in which he specializes.
Tom has put such an important aspect of my life in a completely different perspective. He has helped me found a bit of peace, through is questions and our conversations I was able to understand a lot about myself. And above all I never felt judged. Highly recommended!
Really appreciated Tom’s insightful help over the past weeks. He works towards your goals and provides strong tools to help you deal with your issues directly. Thank you, Tom!
Sessions with Tom were my experience of therapy or counselling of any kind. In our sessions, he acted as a keen listener, a great source of counsel and provided useful exercises and tools to aid me in my development. Most importantly, he is inquisitive and probing in a polite and encouraging fashion, which allows you to make breakthroughs and develop awareness of oneness. With that awareness, I really felt like I took the necessary steps to dealing and solving the issues I had set out to. Overall, I would highly recommend Tom as a counsellor.
It's very early in the process but I feel like Thomas is really listening to me. I am looking forward to our future sessions.
Tom was my first experience with counselling/therapy and I can’t have been more grateful. I was nervous and unsure how everything would unfold but he really took the time to understand and assure me things would be ok. I really felt listened to and really benefited from our sessions together. I would recommend him over and over again
Tom is so supportive, helpful and knowledgable. I find it very easy to speak to him and i truly believe he cares about my wellbeing.
Counselling with Tom is my first experience with therapy. When I started, I was anxious about how it would go as I wasn't what I needed to address and how. I was going through not one particular challenge but a mix of emotions and concerns. Tom listened, took the time to understand how I feel and was extremely patient and supportive through the process. He was always available and ready to offer solutions that worked specific to my strengths and weaknesses. It's like he hit a 'refresh' button on my entire outlook on my life, encouraging me to let go of what's not been working and to build on what's been good. The quality of his counselling has extended to the happiness of the people in my life including my partner, family and friends as I learned to manage myself better. I highly recommend sessions with Tom if you're looking for an experienced and patient counsellor. I feel equipped with a new perspective on how to keep evolving regardless of external obstacles as I have a renewed sense of control of my own happiness - thank you, Tom.
Tom was my first experience of professional counseling/therapy, and I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking something like this might help. Tom was patient, understanding and respectful, but importantly, he was also able to challenge me and nudge me in the right directions. I learnt a lot about myself thanks to his guidance, and feel a lot more equipped to deal with the many trials of life. Once again, I would strongly recommend Tom as a counselor!
Thomas has been very helpful, and always knows my concerns and how he can help. I would recommend BetterHelp and especially Thomas to anyone needing similar help.
Thomas points out the things I don’t see and guides me gain skills to get from where I am to where I want to be. He is insightful and I feel he productively understands me and what I am working towards.
