My name is Tom Davis. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) in the state of Alabama and Louisiana with over 10 years of counseling experience. I have experience working with adults and adolescents both in individual and group settings. I also have experience working with couples and families. Some clinical issues I have the most experience in include addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety, and stress management.
A main focus in my treatment is establishing a therapeutic relationship with the person first and foremost as I believe having a good connection helps facilitate effective counseling and provides the best outcomes. In therapy, I am supportive, compassionate, and am present with individuals both in times of struggle as well as times of achievement and progress. I make sure to meet each individual where they are and actively listen to and respect where they would like to see themselves in the future with the help of therapy.
Working collaboratively with individuals on their treatment goals is a priority throughout treatment and I encourage open communication regarding what therapeutic techniques and approaches that work best for the person so as to ensure the best therapeutic experience.
My counseling style combines 12-Step Facilitation, cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, motivational interviewing, and brief therapy approaches to help individuals achieve their therapeutic goals. Identifying one's strengths and coping skills that can be used to help work through various issues is an important part of my therapy approach.
I truly value each individual therapeutic relationship and fully empathize with the different emotions a client may experience throughout treatment. I believe that each individual has the ability to overcome struggles but that sometimes having additional support in the form of therapy can help one to better identify and recognize the coping skills and strengths they already possess.
You have taken the first step in creating a healthier, happier you and I would be honored to help you in that journey!

I've been with Tommy going on two years now. I needed someone specific to the situation I was dealing, and continue to deal with. What I'm really starting to see, and what he reminds me, is how far I've come and the progress I've made. Most importantly, that progress and healing are not linear.

Mr Davis is a great person. He makes himself available via chat when I need him and is very insightful and calming.

Tommy was really instrumental in supporting my path towards recovery. His personal experiences and expertise are a great touch to the sessions and make you feel instantly comfortable. I am sorry to be leaving him as a client but he will be my first consideration if I return to BetterHelp.
