Tom is an excellent communicator. He contacted me regarding Indian vegetarian cooking lessons. He is a very good planner and made sure everything would be ready for the day of the lesson. He was kind enough to ask if he should bring any of the ingredients for the dish.

Thomas is someone you can count on to help you figure things out. He is a great example of what recovery from mental illness can look like. He is now working full time at a major mental health organization, helping those in crisis. Thomas being part of Simbi is a great service because you can have access to someone who will understand what you are going through with no judgement.

Thomas is the go-to person if you want something done right. He is great at what he does. Case management? You got it. Need help applying for DSHS benefits? He's the guy to go to. As a peer coach and mental health peer, Thomas is an inspiration--he has personal experience with mental illness and recovery--working with him not only will give you hope for the future, it will also inspire you to do well for yourself.
