Thomas Cabello, RMFIT
Thomas was born in Huancayo, Peru and is fluent in Spanish. He immigrated to the United States in 1995 when he was 9-years-old and grew up in Stamford, CT. He joined the U.S. Army in 2006 and served for 8 years. Committed to improving himself for the benefit of himself and his family, Thomas graduated in July 2018 from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor with his Masters degree in Counseling and became a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern. Thomas’ greatest motivator is his family. He has 13 brothers and sisters and has been married to his wife, Brooke Cabello for nine years. Thomas has a daughter, Sofia, and infant son, Maita.
Thomas’ approach to therapy is flexible to the individual (child or adult), couple or family. Three of the many approaches Thomas uses:
1) Symbolic-Experiential Family Therapy
This theory presents the family with new options to the definition of behavior within the family. The goal is for individuals and families to be flexible enough to traverse problems, but cohesive enough to maintain contact within the person and with each person of the family.
2) Brief Solution-Focused Therapy
This theory emphasizes present and future solutions to the problematic past to bring forth new solutions to the problem.
3) Satir’s Therapeutic Model
Interventions are direct and functional. Each member of the family needs to communicate with their inner strengths, self-worth, and emotions to encourage developmental growth and improved self-esteem within the person and family.
