About me

I have been providing counseling for the past 40 years. I began my career at MHMR, gaining experience in individual and family therapy. I moved on to private practice focusing on abuse issues and trauma, depression, anxiety, anger management and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I have seen over 100 Vietnam Veterans and 10 Desert Storm Veterans for diagnosis and treatment of PTSD. I have also worked with adult and child victims of physical/sexual/emotional abuse. I currently provide counseling services to the local public school system, working with students with an Emotional Disability, Autism and Other Health Impairment (OHI). During my practice I have had numerous opportunities to provide couples counseling. Couples counseling focuses on the interactive dynamic between partners. Communication and respect of boundaries is vital. Helping people to deal with frustration is also important.

My approach to counseling is based on trust and communication. Without a healthy therapeutic relationship, counseling is usually non-effective. I believe, broadly, in a Cognitive-Behavioral approach. However, processing of emotional issues is sometimes necessary for an individual to move forward in their life. I have found that clients do best when they see that someone is "in their corner."

What a total blessing it has been to have a therapist like Thomas Slough. Over the last year he has helped me immensely with a common sense and Christian approach. I’m very grateful for his wisdom and support.

Excellent. Patient. Understanding.
Thomas is a great listener and able to help both parties express themselves without judgment and find deeper meaning. Highly recommended.

Tom was great from the beginning, but as he got to know us better he was even more great. Cannot thank him enough for what he has taught us.

Thomas is truly a treasure to find and work with. In fact, in our cumulative 6 months or so time using this app and switching counselors, we have never found anyone as great as Thomas. He is able to get to the root of the issue quick and he’s very gentle in his approach. We are staying with him as long as we use this and he is available.

Thomas actively listens to both of our concerns and addresses them individually as well as offering solutions for us to work on together, within our relationship. His recommendations have been very helpful in our therapy journey thus far.

My husband and I have been working with Mr. Slough for a couple weeks now and I have really enjoyed his counseling so far! It’s refreshing to know that if I am in a rut, I can message him at any time and he is ready to bring me helpful advice. We’ve had 1 video call so far with him and we really enjoyed our time with him. Mr. Slough was able to give us advice that helped us understand each other’s troubles and give solutions to ongoing issues. I am very confident that Mr. Slough will continue to help improve my husband and I’s communication + overall marriage. Thank you!!
