Tom Herman is a Therapist based in Illinois USA. My areas of speciality include therapeutic practices. This profile is currently unclaimed; please validate the details are current when communicating with the mental health professional.
I work with people who are experiencing anxiety and distress. Many feel stuck in unsatisfying experiences. We can gently explore these experiences together in ways that can loosen their “grip”, and bring innate healing resources into play, cultivating a deeper sense of ease and opportunity in our daily experience. The dissolving of these unsatisfying patterns, and the appearance and growth of more satisfying ones, happens in both individual and relationship therapy. Relationship therapy includes a shift from attempting to conquer or control our partner(s), to creating a relational field in which all partners cultivate interest in learning more about the other’s experience, whether they agree with them or not. I welcome clients with a variety of gender and sexual identities, and relationship configurations. I draw on my experience in improvisation and music to make therapy a co-creative process, focused in the present moment, with somatic and mindfulness approaches to support a sense of internal aliveness, well-being, and authenticity. Feel free to contact me if you would like to talk about how we might work together in whatever your goals may be.
