Dr. Andrea Thomas


People often seek therapy when they want to make a significant change in their lives. Therapy is meant to help you discover your ability to make this change while being supported by a caring and compassionate ally. Therapy helps you find your voice and change your personal story from one of frustration and fear to one of positive development and abundance.


 

My approach to therapy is strength-based and solution focused. In order to develop your personal strengths, we will include aspects of various therapies including cognitive based, narrative, art, mindfulness, and psychodynamic therapies. The skills you develop in therapy are to help you navigate daily life and allow you to develop a growth mindset.

 

I began my career as a psychiatric nurse and worked in forensic facilities, group homes, and hospitals. After many years in the field of nursing, I completed a graduate degree in Clinical Psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology.

 

Through my nursing and clinical experiences, I have had the pleasure of working with clients from a range of backgrounds. As a result of these experiences, I specialize in supporting the needs of clients who identify as Native American and/or multi-racial. I support the use of healing traditions in therapy, and am happy to learn more about your preferences.

 

It is my aim to help you develop skills that will allow you make positive changes in your life. I provide a supportive and safe environment in which you can learn about the perceptions that shape your daily experience, and how to change them to create a fulfilling and prosperous life.
