Whether your decision to make changes involves freedom from painful limiting beliefs, release from repetitive relationship patterns, or transformation through sincere self-examination, I help people to fully realize the person they are destined to become. I work with adults, couples, teens, and families, helping them to successfully attain short-term goals and craft long-range solutions by utilizing a variety of approaches matched to their specific needs or expressed desires as they learn new ways to address life's challenges. As a level 3 Gottman couples therapist, I work with couples utilizing John Gottman's evidence-based theory.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Registered Addiction Specialist. I specialize in all areas of addiction, working with adults, couples, teens, and families helping them to recover from the negative impact that addiction can have on their lives. I work with trauma patients using EMDR therapy. I am now offering Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy.
I am not the type of therapist that sits back and nods my head and asks, "How does that make you feel?" I am active, engaged, exploring the issues that may be preventing you from realizing your true potential. Together we will collaborate on goals that will help you to achieve new skills to effectively navigate and manage the challenges in your life.

Thom Kessler's Groups

Recovery Group

This is a group for professional men and women who are in recent or long term recovery from their addiction. The group is kept small and consists of a maximum of 4-6 people. The purpose of the group is to provide people with a more intimate setting to share and discuss whatever issues that may be impacting their program of recovery and receive feedback from the group in a safe and supportive environment. Each potential member before joining the group is informally assessed by me in order to assure a comfortable fit with the current group members.
