If you’re reading this, you have already taken the first step in manifesting change in your life: selecting the right counselor!
Do you find yourself stuck in patterns that don’t work for you? Do you feel like your past is holding you back from living the life that you want? Perhaps you are experiencing worry, fear or sadness. You might have important life changes that you’re grappling with, or be interested in identity development issues.
I’m so glad you’ve landed here. My name is Joni Antonia. I am a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist. I have over 15 years of experience working with adolescents and young adults. I consider myself an “eclectic” provider and use a person-centered, trauma informed approach. I am EMDRIA certified, and use DBT, CBT, Play & Art therapy, mindfulness, and solution focused techniques. My therapeutic style is warm, empathetic and non judgmental.
I am a true believer that it is through life’s challenges that we become the strongest, truest forms of ourselves. I consider you to be the expert on your life; my role is to support and guide you during that process of learning and healing. Our sessions will help you to recognize your strengths, learn new tools, and build the confidence you need to steer your life in the direction that you desire.
Please take that next step and reach out to me. Together we will determine your goals and make a plan for the future. I look forward to beginning our work together.

Joni is a fantastic counselor. I always feel respected and listened to and like she really understands me. She always offers helpful insight and perspectives; and for all these reasons I feel very comfortable with her. Having her as a counselor has enabled me to grow and really work through the various issues I discuss with her.
Joni has been so supportive and respectful during our work together. She’s good at knowing when to push and when to pull back and it’s making a world of difference.
Joni is awesome! She always makes me feel validated, supported, and listened to. I look forward to our weekly sessions, she is so easy to talk to. She also gives me helpful exercises and homework. I feel super grateful to have been paired with her.
