I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in North Carolina with over 44 years of experience in community mental health, employee assistance, private practice, and school-based counseling. A substantial portion of my case work in each of those venues has been with couples struggling with a variety of relationship issues.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach allows me to meet you where you are in your personal journey. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. We may use Gottman method couples counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, Triple P parenting, mindfulness-based stress reduction or other person-centered approaches that we agree are best to meet those needs.
It takes courage to reach for a happier, more satisfying life, and to take the first steps toward a change. If you and you partner are ready to take that step, I will be here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you.

Mr. Warren is very skilled, experienced, and thorough. He seems to always be focused on moving us forward through the process of better understanding and the development of skills to work through our issues.
Thomas is very attentive to the ideas we are trying to focus on in bettering our relationship. He gives us proper tools and methods to apply to ourselves individually and cohesively. He is very clear in the explanations he provides.
He is amazing. So compassionate, respectful, and resourceful.
Mr. Warren has been able to provide countless strategies for my husband and I to use to improve our marriage. He has answered all the questions we have had and he takes notes to ensure he addresses all of our concerns. He has been very responsive to all of our messages and has done all he can to accommodate our schedules for video chats. Very satisfied with our counselor.
I've been working with my counselor Mr. Warren for a few months now. Even though I have known for a while that there are changes I want to make, it is always a big step to actually put things in motion, so signing up seemed like a big step for me and commitment to my future self. Due to my busy schedule, it was a couple weeks before I actually started messaging. Mr Warren stayed engaged on his end by sending encouraging messages and inviting me into a discussion, without ever feeling negative or naggy. He is always supportive, and I feel that I can say things without judgement. I have a tendency to feel too much obligation or responsibility for others, and offer too much of myself. He picked up on this and makes me aware so I can set healthy boundaries. I have been to counselors in the past and I think there is something to learn from everyone, but I find my engagement here is held a little more accountable, which is what I need, because otherwise I tend to fall back on the excuse of being very busy. All in all, we have a long way to go, but my experience so far has been wonderful. I look forward to us both realizing a transformation of myself that we have undertaken together.
Thomas Warren was patient, kind, and professional. He did not take sides. He gave sound advice and shared a plan for us to use. I would recommend him to my friends if they were ever in need.
Thomas Warren is a very personable and intelligent man with excellent philosophies. He considers both parties inputs not favoring one side or the other. He's a very excellent listener letting us completely give our thoughts and feelings before replying. He doesn't seem to be overly pushy with things, and he's very easy to work with and makes both of us feel very comfortable.
Thomas listened very well and put together a plan that helped both of us. He is quick to see the problems in both people and find ways to individually help each them and help them as couple also.
