Hello! My name is Thomas Kaufman, and I am an LPC working out of Madison, WI. For the past 20 years, I have worked with families, couples, adults, and adolescents. Using cognitive-behavioral theory with narrative techniques, I help empower clients to explore areas within their lives that present challenges and inhibit change, and assist them with finding solutions that will work for them. However, I also believe that the therapeutic relationship is a vital component within any program, which means that I believe that any work needs to be collaborative between myself and my clients. I am certified to deliver trauma-focused treatments as well as providing services to help manage stress and anxiety.

Mr. Kaufman is extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
Thomas is so good at picking up on my aniexty even when talking to him. He will gently remind me that he is not judging me. He also helped me come out of my shell quickly and gained trust with him on session 2. Some of my friends think it’s ironic that I choose a middle aged male as my therapist but I think we work well together!
Thomas is always such a good listener, and completely non-judgemental. I feel truly safe sharing my thoughts and feelings with him. He always does an amazing job at reframing situations I bring to him, and his perspective is refreshing. He seems to have a knack for finding just the angle I need to keep myself moving forward. I would highly recommend speaking with Thomas.
For the first time in 14 years, I’ve found a therapist that I trust, that I am completely comfortable with opening up to, he speaks to me in a way that I understand and makes the healing process really exciting and motivating - I share with my boyfriend what I had learned during my session with Thomas, he has actually helped so much already and I’ve been working with him for about 3 weeks. He supports me and challenges me and lets me talk about anything. I’d give him a hundred stars if I could!!
Thomas is an active listener. His counseling is compassionate and to-the-point. He has helped me reach understanding about important matters in my life.
