Tom Padilla, LMSW

Hello, I'm Tom Padilla. I'm new to SHADOW WOOD CLINICAL ASSOCIATES (SWCA), joining the practice in the Fall of 2021. SWCA is located at 3649 SW Burlingame in Topeka. Our office number is: 785.266.6751, Lola is the office manager and would be happy to schedule an appointment for me.  

I will be working on Thursday's only.  

I completed my degree as a Master of Social Work in 1993, from KU and am licensed (LMSW), according to the Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board (BSRB) requirements.  

I have experience working with families, individuals and conducting group psychotherapy. Most recently I provided care and case management to Veteran's, having recently retired from the Topeka VA.

Including experience in the substance abuse field, I have provided counseling to clients struggling with depression, PTSD, grief, and other emotional and behavioral issues. I plan to focus my practice on working with individuals, but would consider assisting families in the therapeutic process.  

The office manager continues to assist me with credentialing with BCBS and Medicaid, private pay and a sliding scale is always an option.

This journey we're all on can be difficult at times .. sometimes we just need an empathetic ear, sometimes we just need encouragement and support, but sometimes we need the privacy and guidance of a trained professional to assist us with the roadblocks that life places on our path.  I'd be honored to assist you in that journey. Please call for an appointment, 785.266.6751, and Lola will be happy to schedule an appointment for you.
