About Me

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.

Thomas is very good and thinking outside of the box to get me to be able to view things in a way I hadn't before. I appreciate that.

I have been seeing Thomas Kaufman for several months and have found it extremely helpful for my day to day life. He has worked with me to show me the strengths that I bring to face the challenges that pop up in day to day life. Having this outlet to be able to share and get feedback has been invaluable!

I've said it before and I'll (continue to) say it again - Dr. Kaufman changed my life. I've made a complete 180 with my life with his help, my thought process has completely changed in a positive way, my lifestyle is different, I feel like a new person.

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.

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.
