Tom Rohrer, PhD, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Walnut Creek
Hi! Take a deep breath! Are you ready to let go of what isn't working for you and build the life that you want? Great! I offer a safe place and the most effective approaches for you to learn, grow, heal & thrive. Since 1972 it's been my purpose and pleasure to help my clients transform their lives with brief, solution-oriented approaches; psychotherapy, life, performance & recovery coaching, and life-changing seminars. Due the length of time that I have been blessed with a career of helping people, I am comfortable working with most every human issue.
I am certified in the most effective tool for all issues, Brainspotting! I understand the journey of transformation, personally and professionally. I am the author of Thriving Beyond Addiction: A Complete User-Friendly Guide, which is a step-by-step guide through the maze of recovery issues, options, and solutions.
I'm the Executive Director of Addiction Recovery Graduate Programs, which offers seminars and coaching groups for people who are already in recovery for at least three months. We offer the education and guidance that many people need. I have been in recovery since 1985.
