About Frank Thewes

Psychotherapy doesn’t have to be boring or feel like work. My goal as a therapist is to have a great conversation with you and try and help make the hard work seem less difficult, feel less painful, and even sometimes make it enjoyable. I view it as my responsibility to use my empathy, experience, personality, and even sense of humor as tools to help you make your breakthroughs in therapy.

No matter how qualified a therapist is, if you don’t feel comfortable with them, you may not get the most of your time and energy spent in therapy. I engage my clients from the very beginning, acting as a partner on your path forward. I offer a conversational, friendly style that blends approaches depending upon on your individual needs. I also offer busy people high-feedback sessions if they seek a more direct approach.

I have worked with clients from all walks of life and all backgrounds. It has been a privilege to meet and work with every single person, couple, and family that I have known in my career. I look forward to seeing clients each day and consider myself lucky to be able to work in this field. A wonderful supervisor of mine once said years ago that being a therapist is the best job in the world. I agree with her 100%. When I go to work each day I get to be a resource and a support for people who are looking to heal, clarify, redesign, and make important changes in their lives. I strive to bring this energy to each and every individual I work with.

I hold a Master’s of Social Work degree from University of Southern California. I hold a Bachelor’s degree from Penn State University. I am Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) by the State of New Jersey. I have been working directly with clients for about a decade. I am licensed in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. 

I enjoy time with friends and family – either at home or being social. I like food and travel – Ireland is a favorite for the soul but Italy wins for the weather and food. I play guitar just well enough to not completely embarrass myself – live music and concerts are a passion. I’m a pretty even mix of introvert and extrovert.
