Viola Thomas, LCSW
Clinical Social Worker/Therapist -
Welcome!Are you having trouble cultivating and maintaining peace of mind? Do you engage in the same patterned behaviors that leave you feeling defeated as you keep repeating the same cycles? Are you struggling with feeling accomplished? Do you feel dissatisfied with how your life has been so far? Have you tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and realized you need help from someone else? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by being here. And I know this is hard, but I’m so glad you found me and have taken the courageous step to living a more fulfilled life.I am a certified Clinical Social Worker with 10+ years of experience working with Adults & Couples. My approach incorporates trauma-informed care, schema exploration, attachment theory and mindfulness tools to help clients make sense of and learn from their lived experiences. For example, as an African myself, I am able to counsel clients with nuanced discussions that factor in the cultural, societal and personal influences that shaped their lived experience. I also specialize in serving the following marginalized populations to include LGBTQ+, reformed offenders reintegrating to civilian life, and neurodivergent adults.Over the years, my clinical skills expanded to better treat issues such as anxiety, depression, codependency, family of origin issues, parenting skill development, trauma/PTSD, ADHD, anger management, conflict resolution, executive dysfunction and intimacy concerns. I strive to facilitate personal growth, mental clarity and spiritual wholeness in my clients, and I am a firm believer in the effectiveness of treating the whole person through a holistic approach.My ultimate goal is to help you DemystiPHI (demystify) your life by Providing Helpful Information that offers clarity on your human experience and develops tools you can use to better navigate future life transitions and mental health conditions. In short, I offer to stand with you on your journey of self-discovery, to shed light unto critical aspects of your life- your biggest fears, greatest regrets, limiting beliefs, past and recent traumas, the many questions about yourself that weigh on your mind- in order to help you grow, evolve and eventually thrive. Now, let’s DemystiPHI this thing called life together!
