Welcome to Simply Thrive! My name is Wade Thomas and I’m a licensed therapist, receiving my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Indianapolis. I have been providing therapy to clients for over five years. I work with various clients with diagnoses such as depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma and abuse, and substance abuse. I work with adults and teenagers and hold my office as a safe space for LGBTQIA+ community members.
My primary modality relies heavily on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, with strong influences on Motivational Interviewing and an emphasis on person-centered and strengths-based language. I enjoy challenging maladaptive thought patterns that lead to self-destructive behaviors and overwhelming distressful emotions. I set healthy and achievable goals with my clients to push them toward success. I believe that clients are the experts in their own lives and that every client can resolve the distress they are experiencing. My job is to point clients in the right direction and support them in a healthy and safe environment. Together, we will explore solutions and resolutions to your distress, whether finding alternative and healthier thoughts, altering language, or just talking through the problems in sight. I can’t wait to get started with you!
