My name is Thomas Darksmith and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). I am based in the Bay Area and serve clients throughout the state of California via telehealth. I work with individuals, couples, and families, using a humanistic and psychodynamic approach. The foundation of my work is a strong therapeutic relationship, based on trust and acceptance. I integrate several modalities (including CBT, motivational interviewing, and narrative therapy) to help my clients gain perspective and make informed decisions that will ultimately reduce their suffering.
I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, addiction, and trauma. I effectively work with clients who are ambivalent about change and skeptical of the therapy process. I have extensive experience working with people experiencing chronic mental health disorders, challenges with substance use, Veterans, and those dealing with the criminal justice system.
My role is to help my clients gain perspective on their unhelpful thoughts and behavior patterns by challenging them in a direct and supportive way.
