Thomas is a Board Certified Mental Health Therapist. His approach to treatment is based on Family Systems Theory which was developed by Dr. Murray Bowen. Thomas helps clients examine their behavioral and emotional responses to stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma based on learned behaviors from their family of origin. He works with clients to identify how Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) impact emotional and behavioral functioning and helps the clients acquire healthy coping skills. Thomas works with clients to identify the roots of the pathology they encounter and is a careful, astute clinician when discussing some of life’s most sensitive matters with his clients. Thomas has dedicated his life’s work to provide clinical mental health services to individuals and families. Those therapeutic services include intake assessments, family therapy, addictions counseling, behavioral modifications and interventions, anger management, IEP consultations, as well as treatment planning for individuals, adolescents, couples, families, and groups.
He leads Intense Outpatient Programs (IOP) and developed a successful curriculum utilizing psychoeducation, cultural awareness, and mindfulness. This helps clients identify triggers and understand their responses to personal trauma often leading to self-medicating behaviors. Thomas has also developed behavioral health programming for middle school and high school students to help them cope with mental health challenges due to COVID-19. He developed an after-school program in which he combines physical fitness and mental health practices to teach elementary school-age children how to develop personal resiliency and understand how emotional regulation impacts their behavior. Thomas is located in the Northeast quadrant of Washington D.C and is a proud alum of Loyola University Maryland, University of Maryland College, and Archbishop Carroll High School.
