About Tom Bolls, MA, LPC

If you are struggling in your relationship and your best efforts at connecting are not succeeding, I would like to help. My specialties include couples counseling, working with survivors of trauma and sexual abuse, as well as the concurrent treatment of depression and anxiety. My approach is direct and compassionate, getting to the heart of the matter quickly. I work to provide you with practical skills that you can use to cope in more effective ways.

I have advanced training in working with couples, pulling from a wide variety of relational models (Gottman / Hendrix / Tatkin) and using the most recent insights from neuroscience and attachment theory. I also have advanced training in trauma using methods such as EMDR, Sensorimotor, and Schema therapies.

Talking about your pain is never a pleasant experience. That’s why we all avoid it. I use lots of humor to help navigate these dark places in your life. Finding relief is many times just as important as making meaning out of your painful experiences.
