About me

Greetings! My name is Tom Swartz and for the past 25+ years I have worked as a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado. I have worked with a diverse range of adults seeking to create and enhance their toolbox of life skills. I am a Person-Centered counselor who enjoys working with individuals and couples as they seek assistance in addressing their life issues and concerns. My style is warm, compassionate, non-judgmental and solution focused. Together we will seek ways to support your goals which feed your heart and soul.

I have consulted and worked in a variety of counseling settings including: private practice, rural clinics, hospitals, community service organizations, schools, childcare centers, sheltered workshops, military bases (including overseas installations), small businesses to Fortune 500 companies.

When working with couples some time is needed for each person to tell their own story and the story they share together which brings them up to the present. From there
guidance can be offered to begin building healthier interactions, encouragements, forgiveness, and hope. Small successes, the use of daily skills and new insights can build towards a nurturing, satisfying and successful relationship. If the couple ends the relationship, a real effort is made to appreciate hard lessons learned and how not to repeat them.

I have completed my master’s degrees in Clinical Psychology and Computer Information Systems. I have also pursued graduate work in business administration, communication, education, special needs, learning disabilities, and project management.

I hold the following certifications:
Clinical Fellow, American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT)
National Certified Counselor, National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC)
Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (NBCC)
Master Addiction Counselor (NBCC)
Fellow, The American Academy of Pain Management (AAPM)

My availability is evenings and weekends with a focus on using phone and video modalities. It will be a pleasure to work with you!

Tom is fantastic! With his help I was able to overcome a lot of challenges that come both with a new ADHD diagnosis and with life challenges in general. He has taught me great tools to use in the future, and he has helped me to better see my own value. I couldn't be more grateful.
