Hi I'm Misty Thompson. I have been working for over seventeen years as a clinical therapist with juveniles, adults, couples, and families. I use a solution-focused, experiential therapy style, focusing on areas of strength or need that are determined by the client. My style is supportive and inclusive and I use a variety of therapeutic techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness therapy, trauma-informed therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I am non-judgmental and welcome people of all races, ethnicities, faiths, gender identities, sexual orientations, and political affiliations.
At an initial interview clients should expect to discuss with me their current strengths and struggles, any drug or alcohol use or history, any legal history, and their goals for therapy. I will make sure I understand the full depth and breadth of the client's issues, as well as history that would affect the client's current functioning. Clients should expect to leave their initial appointment with a clearer understanding of the goals and steps for future sessions.

Impartial yet very transparent. From the first phone call I've felt as if I could be open and get put in the direction I needed without prejudice. I am definitely comfortable with Misty.
