Tom's clients are business professionals working through personal, family, or job stresses to find solutions. Tom helps his patients identify issues and develop strategies for change. With over 20 years of corporate experience from Wall Street to the NBA, Tom merges past work lessons with counseling insights to help professionals better manage stress, improve mood, and reach their goals.

In his work, Tom pinpoints stresses, dissects how they arose, and builds specific plans forward so individuals can feel more in control and empower change. He offers the insight necessary to help people understand their situation in new ways and guides people towards surpassing barriers.
