profile 4Thomas Fewer is the founder, director and primary therapist at the New Orleans Counseling Center. He received his bachelor’s degree from the Ohio State University and completed his Master’s degree in Counselor Education at the University of New Orleans. He is a Nationally Certified Counselor that is licensed in the states of Louisiana and Arizona. Thomas has worked with clients in outpatient, inpatient and community settings. He has extensive training in depth psychology which focuses on treating the root causes of issues rather than only the symptoms.

Thomas approaches counseling from both a cognitive-behavioral and a psychodynamic perspective. Thoughts and actions are explored within the context of deeper, more unconscious motivations. He works with clients in a variety of formats, including individually, as couples and in groups. Thomas sees counseling as a process in which client and therapist, having come to understand and trust one another, work as a team to explore and define present problem situations, develop future goals for an improved life and work in a systematic fashion toward realizing those goals.
