Tom has been the Administrator and/or Clinical Supervisor at three non profit, state certified treatment facilities.

Some of his previous professional titles include Intensive Outpatient Treatment Coordinator, Counselor Intern Training Supervisor, TASC Felony Casemanager, Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) Facilitator, Lead Counselor in a county correctional facility, and County Designated CD Specialist for Involuntary Commitment. Tom enjoyed a brief career as a musician and artist in the late 1960s and early 1970s, before becoming an ordained minister. During what he now affectionately calls his "religion period", Tom provided pastoral counseling for a full spectrum of spiritual and secular issues. Upon leaving the ministry, he studied transpersonal psychology, death and dying, meditation, hospice care, domestic violence, family systems, mental health, substance abuse, and chemical dependency. Tom holds a Certificate in Alcohol and Drug Studies, a Certificate in Domestic Violence Training, and was board certified as a "CCDC-II" Chemical Dependency Counselor for many years. In 1996, Tom launched theCounselors.com to provide online counseling for consumers and "Virtual Office" websites for his professional colleagues.
