As a therapist I have witnessed healing and its splendor in the darkest of circumstances and am honored when individuals choose to embark on this journey with me. I know the decision to enter therapy is not always easy. Therapy is not easy. But therapy heals. When you enter therapy you put forth a willingness to acknowledge painful emotions and circumstances and a readiness to explore life events that are often uncomfortable, sometimes even paralyzing. But the insight and meaning you will gain from therapy will lead to transformation, comfort and growth.

I help individuals and couples understand and overcome barriers that get in the way of living a meaningful and fulfilling life; this can include professional, emotional, or interpersonal challenges. My approach draws on narrative and cognitive based principles, that value the understanding of how our experiences, self-awareness, and relationships impact how we cope with life. I believe the process of therapy is one that encourages collaboration and curiosity, and in doing so creates a hospitable environment to explore a variety of life experiences and achieve a healthy life balance.

Dr. Thomas believes that the goals of therapy are: symptom removal (initially), alleviation of pain, facilitation of personal growth, basic character change, and to remove obstacles blocking individuals’ paths. She subscribes to German psychoanalyst, Karen Horney’s view that the human being has an inbuilt propensity toward self-realization. If obstacles are removed, the individual will develop into a mature, fully realized adult, just as an acorn will develop into an oak tree. So, a therapist’s job is identifying and removing the obstacles. Everyone has a yearning for self-realization.

“Be yourself! Everyone else is already taken…” – Oscar Wilde. Being yourself is often easier said than done. As a trauma therapist, I see how easy it is for negative experiences to hinder our ability to be the people we want to be and create a life we want to live. Our bodies and minds are amazingly adaptable—we manage to find ways to survive horrible life events—but these survival instincts were meant to be used on a short-term basis. Traumas—big or small—are stored in the body and affects our ability to connect with others, to trust, and to feel safe in the world. The good news is, healing is possible!

As a therapist, I see myself guiding people on their life path by overcoming such obstacles as depression, anxiety, fear, self-limiting beliefs, and helping them to experience instead the beauty and warmth of their inner rainbow, of claiming joy as their birthright. I love working especially with women at a major transition in their lives: whether from young adulthood to womanhood, from motherhood to 'empty nest' and, ultimately, menopause; women in quest for healthy relationships and a greater meaning in their lives. Spiritual growth, creativity, finding one's purpose - are important issues for everybody to be able to live life to its fullest. I weave my work with a variety of therapeutic approaches including Holistic Healing, Dreamwork and Art Therapy. I'll be happy to discuss any needs you might have to see which modality - group or/and individual therapy - would be the best for you.

This past year has brought many of us face to face with ourselves. You may find yourself haunted by the past. Or perhaps with fewer distractions, you have "gotten in your head" and are find that you don't know how to be still with yourself. For many, relationships and finances have been strained beyond their limits. This year has brought extremes. Some people find themselves without a job or purpose and too much time on their hands. Others are being pushed to their limit in multiple roles such as working from home while trying to managing their children's online education. Most everyone is looking for some relief right now.

I have seen how the powerful process of psychotherapy helps people cope with life's challenges and find inner strength. Therapy reduces suffering and promotes resilience. Additionally it helps improve communication and understanding in relationships. Effective psychotherapy elicits change and guides people toward living more authentically. I realize that people often seek help at their most vulnerable times. I am aware of of this as I guide my clients toward a better understanding of themselves and their inner world, thereby allowing for emotional growth, peace and the attainment of personal goals.

Do you wish the chaos would stop? What would it be like to not feel that way? Sometimes past hurts affect present relationships.

Choosing the right therapist can be difficult. Not only are there many treatment approaches, opening up can be hard, especially at first. Maybe you have tried therapy before and had a mediocre or mixed experience. If you choose to work with me, you can expect a relationship based on safety, acceptance, and understanding. My role is not to judge or label anyone. I work to help my clients achieve their potential as effectively and compassionately as possible. To do this, I work in an engaged way to help people identify their goals, problems, and what can actually be done about them. Emotional pain is real, but so is transformation.
