Professional statement

Ever felt like you're swimming against a tide of overwhelming emotions or memories? Thomas Hanna, the founder of Tempest Counseling, is here to not just extend a lifeline, but to teach you how to navigate these waters with confidence and grace.

Thomas approaches therapy with a rare blend of heart and intellect. Drawing from a rich tapestry of evidence-based methods like cognitive-behavioral therapy, neuropsychology, somatic therapy, and mindfulness techniques, he crafts a unique therapeutic experience for each individual. He earned his Masters degree from Troy University, and holds additional credentials as a National Certified Counselor, Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional, and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. But what sets him apart is how he combines these scientifically-proven methods with deep empathy and understanding, creating a safe and nurturing environment where genuine healing can occur.

With the flexibility of telehealth sessions, Thomas opens the door to therapy that’s both convenient and comfortable. Meet from the sanctuary of your home or a quiet personal space, and receive the same quality of care as you would in a traditional setting. A true innovator in the realm of mental health, Thomas has developed the Breakthrough Accelerator App to further enhance his sessions. This not only ensures continuity in the therapeutic process but offers his clients the tools and resources to actively engage in their healing journey, even between sessions. Most clients report improvement within the first 30 days.

Message to clients

I understand that taking the first step towards seeking therapy can be filled with uncertainty and even fear. Many of us wonder, "Will this help? Will I be understood? Can change truly happen for me?" I want to assure you that it's perfectly natural to feel this way. We all carry our stories, our fears, and our hopes. When you choose to share them with me, know that you'll be met with understanding, compassion, and a dedication to helping you craft a brighter narrative.

My approach in therapy is rooted in science, but it's your unique journey and experiences that shape our sessions. By using tools like the Breakthrough Accelerator App, we'll create bridges between sessions, ensuring that you always have a resource at your fingertips. My greatest hope for you is not just to find relief, but to rediscover joy, purpose, and the strength that lies within you.

Starting therapy can be a transformative decision. Remember, this is a partnership, and I'm here to walk alongside you, every step of the way. Reach out to schedule a free consultation call, and let's begin this journey together.
