Areas of Treatment

Shalonda Thomas is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who describes her ideal client as anyone that needs her services the most. She is a strong advocate for therapy and her goal is to make services affordable and accessible to as many individuals and families as possible, which is why she is joining the ACFS Team.  Shalonda deeply believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to have a safe place and a listening ear.

Since deciding to do full-time therapy, her practice areas have focused on life changes, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, stress management, and more.  She utilizes a wide range of therapeutic modalities, tailored specifically to the client's needs.  Shalonda works from a strengths-based approach which identifies any constraints that might be holding back an individual’s growth and focuses on the innate strengths they have to overcome these barriers.

Shalonda will only be seeing Clients with Medicaid on a Part-Time Basis in an effort to expand our community reach.
