What Tempest Does

As a nationally certified clinical mental health counselor (NCC) and certified clinical trauma professional (CCTP), Thomas is trained to provide science-based treatment for a wide variety of life challenges and diagnoses while specializing in the following major areas:

Religious Trauma.

For many, religion provides a source of comfort and hope. Unfortunately, when religion becomes toxic, it can continue to do damage long after it has been left behind. As a counselor with extensive training in both trauma treatments and global religions, Thomas brings a unique perspective in overcoming the damage imposed by harmful forms of religion.


PTSD is a growing complication that impacts far more people that we once realized. Military trauma, childhood abuse, sexual trauma, school shootings, and even vicarious trauma can lead to avoidance and life-changing symptoms that undermine the ability to function healthily. As a Clinical Trauma Professional trained in numerous trauma treatment approaches, Thomas can help you recover the life that was stolen.


Over 17 million adults in the United States suffer from depression every year. It’s an experience that often feels like treading water in the open ocean, slowly tiring, little by little, just waiting for that final wave to pull you under. Yet, it doesn’t have to be. Depression often responds well to treatment, and Thomas is able to apply the leading evidence-based treatments for depression.


It’s the sleepless nights we lie awake with worry. It’s the sweaty palms and racing heartbeat. It’s the constant sense of dread or panic. It’s the inability to do the things we want to do because we can almost tangibly feel the walls closing in. Luckily, the body of research surrounding the treatment of anxiety is vast. Thomas is able to bring that research to bear in promoting wellness and recovery with anxiety and panic attacks.

The Tempest Story

A “tempest” is an unrelenting storm, raging over the open sea. It is an example of the sheer power of nature once the shackles are taken off, when it is given the ocean currents to fuel its strength, and when there are no longer any bounds to keep it contained. It is nature’s parable about what we can become when we finally release our bonds.

My name is Thomas Hanna, and I am the founder of Tempest Counseling. Through the use of evidence-based practices, Tempest helps clients discover, challenge, and overcome the destructive beliefs and emotional barriers that keep us from fulfilling our potential.
