My Approach to Helping
Hello, my name is Tom and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor. I’ve been practicing since 2014. Professionally I’ve focused my clinical attention on treating issues with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationships, and emotional family issues.
I often help people to set appropriate boundaries, to connect with others, to be empathetic, to be more assertive, to be honest and vulnerable, to resolve conflict, and to better understand, accept, and love themselves. We work towards this by increasing our self-awareness, understanding the past and it’s role in the present, and identifying insights and strategies that will help us move forward.
I’m highly experienced in working with couples, parents, and high conflict families. Being a husband and a father myself, I find it rewarding and meaningful to see clients feel successful in rebuilding and strengthening their relationships.
Another area I’m highly experienced in is working with clients on issues with self-esteem, self-confidence, managing strong emotions, relational self-awareness, and helping clients cultivate a growth oriented mindset. I strive to combine a clinical understanding of mental health with the practical and action oriented spirit of self-help and performance psychology.
I primarily utilize principles and techniques of Emotionally Focused therapy, Systems Theory, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Psychodynamic therapy, and the Gottman Method.
In working with all clients I do my best to provide them with an experience tailored to their specific needs. Not everyone comes into therapy knowing specifically what they want and that’s totally ok!
I’m also experienced and knowledgeable in treating issues related to trauma, addiction, and PTSD if they were to come up during the course of treatment.
