Hello. I am Tom WIssert a Licensed Professional Counselor in Alabama. My experience over the last several years has been with drug and alcohol addictions and the co-occurring issues and causes that go along with these addictions. More recently I have dealt with many different marital and relationship problems from intimacy to communication. Using Motivational Interviewing and Active Listening I have been able to help clients see things from a different perspective and to identify problem thinking. I would describe myself as a behaviorist using a Cognitive Behavioral approach and Person Centered counseling to help client resolve problems. Being a good listener is one of my best skills and using things clients tell me to unlock some deeper issues is a great reward for both the client and myself. I am generally available to clients on weekdays and some weekends if necessary. A goal of mine is a 24 hour message return. I usually check messages throughout the day and return messages before leaving the office.
