What is The Process Like?
1. Creating a safe environment through competency.
Tom has undergone over 260 hours of post-graduate training in the last two years to help clients promote healing from within. He picked an office with lots of space and colors for clients to orient to and feel safe. The office has a pond in the background where he frequently walks with clients to engage the body during treatment.
2. Discovering the patterns of past, and how that plays into the present.
Clients fill out an intake and talk about their problems in sessions 1-4. Your therapist/coach assesses your emotions, thought patterns, affect, behaviors, tone, strengths, and somatic states to see where your baseline is, and how those baselines were created based on your gender, race, age, sexuality, physical health, socioeconomic status, environment, relationships, perspective and recreational activities.
3. Creating more self awareness.
Tom believes in a holistic healing approach, which is the congruence of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Often, when one of the three elements are out of sync with the others, it creates stress. In sessions 4-10, your therapist/coach helps you create more awareness for your thoughts, emotions and behaviors using an approach tailored-made to you.
4. Using self-awareness to change emotion, thoughts and behaviors in real-time.
Using the your newfound self-awareness, you will learn to address depression, anxiety, PTSD, automatic negative thoughts, and negative feelings as they happen in real-time, without the help of a therapist/coach.
5. Creating newer and healthier patterns in present and future
As you address your issues in real-time, you create a completely different trajectory for yourself. Instead of being hampered by your disorders, you’ll learn how to thrive. Instead of being depressed by your love life, you will create healthy boundaries and flourish. Instead of being stuck in your 9-5, you will rediscover your zest for life.
