My name is Rich Thomas, the founder of Sylvie Point Counseling, and I specialize in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to address trauma, anxiety, and mood disorders. EMDR is an effective, evidence-based approach using bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements, to reprocess and desensitize clients’ traumas or distressing life experiences. Feel free to check out the EMDR tab under my services page to learn more.
My secondary clinical focus is working with men to focus on their specific issues and reduce the stigma for men to seek out counseling. Men tend to have lower rates of seeking therapy and often suffer alone or quietly. As a male therapist, I understand the challenges for men in seeking help, and I am here to help reduce these barriers and advocate for men to engage in counseling without shame or fear.
By tailoring my practice to meet the specific needs of every client, I can help you learn strategies to address your struggles and help you confidently plan for a better tomorrow. I enjoy supporting my clients as we work together to pinpoint the causes of the issues in their lives. In unison, we will work together to address your life’s problems, helping you become a happier, more fulfilled person.
