Thomas KalapurakalThomas Kalapurakal, LPC,NCC is a Licensed Professional Counselor at Millennium Counseling. He earned his Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Northwestern University. Thomas utilizes an eclectic psychodynamic approach, accompanied with humanistic and Jungian techniques, that allows clients to explore the complexities of their current circumstances. Through this process, Thomas guides his clients as they reflect on their life experiences and utilize this information to overcome present challenges, while staying true to their core identity.

I believe that by building a strong therapeutic relationship, the client will feel more autonomous, hopeful, and confident in session to focus on their personal development.

Thomas is passionate about creating an empathetic and collaborative therapeutic relationship with his clients.

Authenticity, honesty, and empathy are the values that drive my work as a counselor.

Thomas seeks to foster self-awareness, autonomy, and hope in clients as they manage their current/past life experiences, while also considering future personal and professional goals.

Thomas specializes in individual counseling for Emerging Adult Populations, specifically Athletic/Performance populations, as they navigate the challenges of life transitions, culture-related identity issues, and social expectations. He is dedicated to helping clients cope with a multitude of mental health issues from various cultural populations. These include managing relational, behavioral, and identity related challenges, improving problematic communication/thought patterns, and coping with symptoms of generalized anxiety, depression, mood disorders and/ or adjustment disorders. His experiences as a second-generation Indian-American male strengthened his desire to help other emerging adults achieve their professional and personal goals within the bounds of their cultural and social environment.
