Tom creates a space for growth and change so clients can experience the power of the therapeutic process. He studied engineering early in his college career but quickly developed a passion for learning and understanding how people think. After earning his bachelor’s degree in psychology at Miami University in 2009, Tom enlisted in the Air Force. There, he saw how stressful situations including an intense work life, deployments, and frequent moves, paired with an absence of appropriate supports can lead to a variety of mental health issues like relationship problems, separation and divorce, problem behaviors in children, and substance abuse. Tom decided to become a psychotherapist partly in order to help people who were feeling overwhelmed like his military colleagues. Since earning his master’s degree in 2017 from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, Tom has been helping parents and families develop strategies to alleviate problems related to children’s behaviors, school issues, co-parenting, and foster care. He also works with couples and individuals to help navigate relationship problems, divorce, and other individual mental health needs. Tom’s clients often report that he connects to them well and understands their concerns on a deep level.

When I worked as a child protective services worker, I saw countless children/families who had survived very difficult circumstances, time and time again! I realized that I wanted to be there to provide additional support to people during those circumstances, and to help in the aftermath. It eventually led me to the decision to go back to school to earn my Master’s degree in Counseling. While working on my degree, I was employed with a skilled nursing facility in a social work capacity. I worked with people struggling with depression, end-of-life issues, grief/loss, and helped to address family problems that arose. I have worked as a licensed therapist since 2009, initially with children and adolescents in foster care, as well as their foster families, and then within the correctional system working with offenders. During my employment in corrections, I worked with people on an individual basis and co-facilitated many groups. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, chronic health problems, victim issues, and I even had opportunities to work with military veterans. The common thread I’ve noticed along my career path has been that I have never stopped seeing that incredible resilience that people have within them!
