This is self-compassion. ❤️


And again!


To my wonderful clients,

Life is a constant game of adjusting and modifying. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank those who have played that game with me recently. Two weeks ago, I suffered an injury that won me a hospital stay and, more recently, surgery on my arm. Modern medicine is indeed a marvel and we have every reason to hope for a full recovery in the future. In the meantime, I thank you for your continued grace as I may have to make slight modifications to the schedule here and there moving forward.

Immensely grateful,


Yes, ma’am! 🙌🏽 We get angry for a reason. Our anger is a “check engine” light letting us know something’s going on under the hood. It’s ok to be angry, it’s what we do when we’re angry that matters.


I love this from ! So often we fight or deny our emotions because they’re not always pleasant to experience. In reality, we’d do so much better to embrace them as the “check engine” lights that they are. How incredible is it that we have internal systems in place to catch our attention when an area of our being needs tending to?


Here are some answers to the FAQ’s I’ve been getting regarding therapy in 2022 🌱

Virtual Sessions?

In response to COVID-19, insurance companies and regulatory boards lifted old restrictions allowing us to continue to meet and provide care for our clients virtually. Thankfully, these permissions are largely the norm now. We are consequently able to meet with our clients regardless of physical location, allowing therapy to be more easily accessible to everyone and less of a time burden.

Do I offer in person sessions?

Both virtual and face-to-face sessions are available for scheduling via the client portal. Meeting in the office just has a different energy and is preferable to some. However, out of respect for everyone, if you are feeling under the weather on the day of your appointment I kindly ask that you shoot me a text to request your session be switched to virtual and I promise to do the same.

Why insurance?

Health insurance is the bane of most of our existences and it’s no different on the end of the provider. I fully understand why so many of my colleagues have shifted to accepting private pay only. However, that can quickly become an intense financial burden. In 2014, most insurance plans were required to include mental/behavioral health. My hope is that by being an “in network” provider that I am able to help those who may not have been able to access services otherwise. On the other hand, if you don’t have insurance and the cost of therapy is an obstacle, let’s talk.

Which insurances do I accept?

Aetna, BlueCross BlueShield, UHC, Multiplan, Oscar, American Behavioral, CIGNA* for first responders & healthcare workers ONLY

What will your copay be?

That is entirely dependent on your insurance plan. My best suggestion is always to call the number on the back of your card.

How do you make an appointment?

All of my scheduling, even for new clients, is done though my client portal: Thompson Counseling Services, PLLC | SimplePractice ( Feel free to scroll through the available appointments at your convenience and select the time that works best for you.


Sister nailed it.


As anyone who is now a parent themselves knows, parents are fully human and far from infallible. You may never receive the acknowledgement you might yearn for from those who fell short in your childhood and you may never build that Time Machine to go back and change things, but you absolutely have the power within yourself to heal those wounds now. The work requires bravery and is worth the effort.

Patterns are rarely coincidences, but we can find freedom in examining our drivers.

"I’m going to tell you something now that’s hard to say. Please listen, because I really mean it: Don’t give up on me. Don’t hate me back. I need you to be stronger than me. I need you to be my parent, even though I say I don’t want one. I need you to be more patient than I can be, more understanding, more accepting. Even when I am yelling at you, even when I tell you that I hate you, I still need you to love me.”

🎉 Grateful for the compliment! 🎉


You may not be responsible for what happened to you, and it may never be “ok”, but you are responsible for yourself now. It may not be just that you now have to struggle to heal, but the work is worth it.


Big facts.
