Individual psychotherapy is provided to individuals battling depression, anxiety, Attention Deficit disorders, mood disorders, and thought disorders. Ages include adolescents, adults and geriatric populations. Much of the therapy utilizes the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Dialectical Behavior Therapy that emphasizes emotional and behavioral regulation, as well as, building life and coping skills.
Group therapy is based on the needs of the community. Most groups are skills building groups and follow the format found in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) with an emphasis on four major life skills: Mananing attention/focus, emotional regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness.
In the past 14 years, Dr. Thomas has become a student of mental health and nutrition. He is a firm believer that nutrition plays a vital role in overcoming many psychological difficulties including depression, anxiety and attention deficit disorders. His 2008 book, Turbo Charged Childhood, presents much of his work with Attention Deficit disorders using liquid nutritional supplements to assist in the management of ADHD. He often incorporates his experience and understanding of nutrition in his work as a psychologist.
Family therapy is provided primarily when working with adolescent males. It is our experience that working with adolescents provides the best outcomes when family therapy is incorporated in the treatment.

We bring over 35 years of experience working with individuals with severe and persistent mental illness and over 13 years working with children & adolescence with Attention Deficit problems using bothboth therapies in conjunction with nutritional approaches. In addition, services for geriatric populations are provided on-site in various assisted living, rest homes, and group homes by trained staff with over 14 years of experience working with issues related to aging. Many of these facilities are located in remote, rural settings where consumers have difficulty reaching mental health services consistently.
