Problems are problems, not people. Through 23 years of clinical social work practice, I've been honored to companion many individuals & families facing depression, anxiety and/or serious & chronic illnesses, providing empathy, compassion, insights & support. We stand up to problems together focused on resilience, wellness, enhancing coping, reducing distress, adjusting to change & life transitions, and finding one's strengths and values when they have been obscured by problems. I skillfully weave eclectic therapies with mindfulness, compassion & meaning-making, offering companionship on one's quest for personal insights & renewal.

Life is lived in cultural & societal contexts worth examining. Healing occurs when real-life struggles are brought to therapy & mindful awareness is used to gain insights within the therapeutic relationship. This allows insights of therapy & practice into life. Understanding & living fully in the present moment is the best way to prepare for what is to come.

Live life more fully again despite suffering. Rooted in therapeutic connectedness, kindness, presence, embodied attention, empathy & compassion and through developing an authentic & welcoming relationship, we co-create opportunities for growth, change, healing, equanimity & renewal. Gains made in our time together are naturally disseminated into daily life.

Thomas J. Pier Therapy's Groups

Grieving Group - Support during Loss (holidays)

Grieving the loss of a loved one may be the heaviest emotion humans experience. "There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition & of unspeakable love." (Washington Irving) This Grieving Group focuses on coming to terms with the reality of loss, working with & through the pain of grieving & adjusting to life considering the absence of the deceased, all while finding an enduring relationship with them allowing you to invest in living fully into the future.
