Over the last 17 years I've been on a journey to figure out what it means to be emotionally healthy. Despite all my education, which includes three Masters Degrees and a postgrad certificate in comedy writing and performing (I'm not sure why I did that one), I'm the first to say that life has been my greatest teacher... that and my wife. She has been very good at helping me see life from a more diverse perspective and to grow in my understanding of healthy conflict resolution, communication, and forgiving (aka be a better person). My goal is to live in a way that will inspire others to want to be healthier rather than to follow what my dad used to joke saying, "Do as I say; not as I do," which is not what you want in a therapist. My style is a mix of CBT, DBT, EFT, solution focused, and logic therapy with my main goal being to help others figure out what it means to be more emotionally healthy a lot quicker than my journey of 17 years.

  • Christian
  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Approach Description: Chad likes to keep things as comfortable as possible as he believes the therapeutic experience doesn't have to be this painful or overly emotional experience. Sometimes the best growth is found in a laugh or simply feeling safe enough to share something that's been too scary or embarrassing to admit out loud.

Chad Tomlinson Practice Description
With over 15 years experience and several awards, Chad has proven to be a solid choice. Like most therapists, he's had lots of experience helping people with anger, anxiety, depression, finding healing, addiction, conflict resolution, and better communication, but what separates him from other therapists (besides his love of writing in the third person) is he writes a weekly lesson on his website This helps him finetune practical tools for being emotionally healthier and fighting off the temptation to not be his best self (aka a jerk). Whether you've never done therapy, love therapy, or you've had a bad experience with therapy, Chad offers a unique style that seems to connect with a wide audience. His approach includes a mix of CBT, DBT, EFT, solution focused, and logic therapy along with a mix of diagrams and scales he's developed in order to provide practical tools for learning how to enjoy life more. Chad's goal is to help people feel safe in this vulnerable experience and maybe even share a laugh since even grief is best experienced with a mix of sadness and laughter. Chad's passion is helping people believe in themselves and to see the better side of life, which he admits can be quite the challenge. Chad has a wide variety of experience working with single, married (or "married"), straight or homosexual, family or individuals with issues from planning a future, divorce, depression, anxiety, anger, addiction such as alcohol and porn forgiveness, not being a pushover, not bottling up, self esteem, social skills, ADHD, conflict resolution, healing, and generally being happier. If you have something more unique than this he's also more than happy to work with you and add a new thing to his list as he's very open minded.
