Thomas Purnell, Licensed Professional Counselor
My name is Thomas Purnell, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Barrington, Illinois. I received my Master’s degree education in Counseling from Trinity International University. Since 2000 I have been working with Adolescents and Families and specialize in family dynamics and helping pre-teens and teenagers transition to adulthood healthily. I also co-lead a men’s therapy group and enjoy working in group counseling settings.
Examples of core issues addressed in counseling include: forgiveness, individuals with adjustment difficulties, couples and family issues, and people in transitions in their life.
Some of my specialties are young adults transitioning to independence, parent coaching and men’s issues.
I also conduct a variety of workshops:
- Anger management for teens
- Helping your teen transition into adulthood
- Stay cool under peer pressure
- Dealing with depression as a young adult
- Envisioning your future
In addition to office visits, I also conduct phone and Skype therapy sessions for clients who do not live near our office or are unable to physically make it. For more information, please contact me at (847.701.4144) or go to my website at Compass Counsel.
