Dr. Thomas is active in the leadership of the largest organization for psychologists, the American Psychological Association (APA), and is the 2016 President of the Division of Psychologists In Independent Practice (Division 42). She is also serving a three year term (2016-2018) on the Policy and Planning Board of the APA, a governance body within APA that reviews the structure and function of the whole organization as well as current and long-range polices.

Dr. Thomas received her bachelor’s degree at Penn State University, her doctorate in clinical psychology from Drexel University, and her law degree from Villanova University School of Law. Having training in both psychology (cognitive behaviorally- & psychodynamically oriented) and law has enhanced her ability to draw from and integrate strengths from multiple perspectives. Dr. Thomas also received extensive post-doctoral training for eating disorder treatment from the Renfrew Center and has collaborated with primary physicians, nutritionists, and psychiatrists.   She was the team lead for the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and provided oversight for a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals. Additionally, Dr. Thomas lead group sessions in the partial program and provided individual and family therapy in the outpatient program.  She has worked with parents and children from a variety of cultural backgrounds, including families that have immigrated to the U.S. and face new challenges (including communication barriers) that hinder their ability to get supportive services for their children. For many years, Dr. Thomas worked for a private behavioral health corporation, where she conducted comprehensive biopsychosocial evaluations for children diagnosed with ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, conduct problems, Oppositional Defiant Disorders (ODD), etc. to determine the appropriate behavioral health services.

While Dr. Thomas finds her work with children and teenagers very rewarding, she also enjoys helping adults. In particular, she has experience working with women’s issues, including depression, anxiety, binge eating disorders, anorexia, bulimia, self-esteem, loss, stress, life adjustment, family problems, and relationships. Dr. Thomas works collaboratively with clients and infuses a sense of humor to facilitate a relaxed environment for working through difficult situations. She often solicits feedback from her clients to determine if their needs are being met and has been told that she creates a therapeutic space where differences in perspectives and experiences feel welcome.

Dr. Thomas is a martial artist and has a love for many dance styles. She also enjoys hanging with her nephew, creating delicious meals from minimal ingredients, and taking long walks with her dog.
