Tom Fronczak, LCSW-R, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Amherst
Working with adults & adolescents within a cooperative relationship, I specialize in the treatment of relationship issues, depression & anxiety, sexuality issues, alcohol/substance use including its impact on families, chronic illness (HIV, cancer), grief/loss, including pet loss and a variety of compulsive behaviors (eating, gambling, sex, shopping, etc). Trained as a yoga instructor, I integrate mindfulness meditation into our treatment as indicated. Mindfulness meditation has been shown to be effective in helping clients regulate mood, alleviate anxiety symptoms, manage stress, as well as reduce pain and its perception. I approach therapy with a sense of shared expertise - client and therapist both co-creating successful outcomes.
Licensed as an clinical social worker, I am recognized as a Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work. I continue advanced training in Relational-Cultural Theory and have expanded my practice to include online and phone coaching & consultation, available through my website which allows for evening & weekend appointments.
I have provided consultation services to ABCNews Good Morning America, ABCNews 20/20, New York Times, HuffPost Live, Fox News, PEOPLE magazine, LOGO / Viacom, CBS Larry Elder Show, Sony Pictures, NewHouse News Service - which feeds stories to 40 national newspapers, several national magazines, and the San Francisco Examiner.
