My name is Anthonia, but I go by Tonia, and I'm a licensed counselor that lives in Houston. I am licensed in Texas with 6 years of professional counseling experience, as a school counselor and professional counselor. And while my background is in public education, I have transitioned to professional counseling and love it. I am licensed in Texas with 6 years of professional counseling experience, as a school counselor and professional counselor. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, & depression. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.
My counseling style is witty and enthusiastic, and those that either know me personally or have worked with me professionally would say that I am supportive, committed, and an advocate for positive mental health experiences. Our therapeutic process will be guided by goal setting and establishing strategies and skills to help reach the desired outcome. Remember, where there is hope, there is help, and we will work together towards positive change.
Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

I've only had a few sessions with Anthonia so far and I already feel better just having someone listen to me. She's very direct in her approach and seems to genuinely care for my well-being. I can't wait to continue to work with her so I can eventually get to a better place.

Everyone looks for different things that are important to them regarding a therapist. Better Help did a fantastic job connecting me with Anthonia. It feels like a perfect match in the universe. I feel free to be myself. I love it here because it's truly a safe place. She guides me in navigating my life and how I process my feelings. Her emotional validation is on point. But let me be clear; she is not my friend. Anthonia gives best friend/sister vibes, and I am referring to the one that will whole you accountable.

Anthonia is an amazing therapist. I scheduled with her during a very challenging time in my life. She helped me develop an actionable plan that made me feel prepared and serene for dealing with my challenges. By far the best therapist I have ever encountered. Couldn’t possibly recommend her more!
