I am culturally sensitive and LGBTQ friendly.
Do you ever wonder if you will ever be happy? Are you so overwhelmed with the daily stressors of work, relationships, parenthood, finances, or life in general that you want to run away from it all? I totally understand because we have all been there at one point in our lives. You are not alone! Life does not have to be difficult. Sometimes we need help getting our life on track; finding our joy or enhancing our relationships. My goal as a psychotherapist is to provide a safe and supportive environment to help you facilitate change, growth, and lead you on an exploratory journey to obtaining the life you want.

Pre-Licensed Professional, PsyD

Dr. Tom was born in Israel and raised in florida in a family with unique values, which led her to a genuine appreciation for culture and individuality. Growing up with a Hebrew name that was frequently misunderstood in a primarily English-speaking society fostered cultural awareness from a very young age. However, this adversity combined with pride for her identity allowed her to recognize and embrace others’ diversity. The dichotomy of growing up in a suburban American society with certain outlooks, and then coming home to differing cultural perspectives helped her develop an expanded range of vision and acceptance of others.
