Each of us has aspects of our life, such as thoughts, memories, attitudes, habits, actions, or reactions, with which we seem to continually struggle. Sheer willpower, a resolution to hide them, or a period of undisturbed tranquility may push them down for a time, but sooner or later, they always seem to resurface.
You can learn new, effective ways to make signficant and lasting change.
Dr. Thomas has training and experience in providing treatment for a number of clinical disorders, such as:
Major Depressive Disorder
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Other specified or unspecified feeding or eating disorders
(OSFED/UFED, formerly EDNOS)
Borderline Personality Disorder
However, individuals without a clinical condition often still experience significant and persisting emotional or relationship distress that interferes with their everyday lives. Fear, anxiety, anger, stress, hopelessness, depression, grief, poor communication, lack of assertiveness, difficulty adjusting to a significant life change: these are all things that can negatively affect your family, your friendships, your job, and your emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being.
Discouraged, we turn to excuses and justifications or just give up battling them, but we know these things in us get in the way of being the person we want to be. Dr. Thomas works with girls and women to help them uncover and deal with what is in their heart, to learn new effective skills and coping strategies, and to be strengthened and renewed by God's grace and power.
As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Thomas will use proven techniques to help you identify and stop unhealthy patterns that are creating or maintaining the problem and replace them with healthy alternatives. As a Christian counselor, Dr. Thomas will not only work toward changing thoughts and behaviors; she will work toward a lasting transformation that reaches and continues in the heart.
