About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 12 years experience working in the mental health field. I began my career assisting families in their homes. This exposure had a significant influence on how I address treatment. Through a Person-Centered Perspective, I see the treatment process as a partnership. I believe in order to bring about healing, there must be an atmosphere free from judgment, full of respect, encouragement and empathy. This is what I strive for.

I borrow from several different treatment models based on what fits best for the individual. This eclectic blend is mainly pulled from cognitive behavioral, solution- focused, attachment and dialectical behavioral therapies. Though, I specialize in the treatment of trauma- related disorders, I have aided in the success of overcoming a number of different challenges, such as, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self-harm, suicidal ideations, paranoia, obsessive compulsions and many others.

Reaching out for help is difficult and I realize takes place after many previous attempts for resolution. I am grateful for the opportunity to accompany you on your journey!

Toni is absolutely wonderful to work with

Written on Jan 18, 2023 after therapy with Toni for 1 year and 10 months on issues concerning grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Toni is very patient and has a nice voice. I don't feel worse about my issue when talking with her. She seems like a friendly and caring person. I think she makes people feel comfortable and that's important for this kind of work.

To say that Toni has been helpful is an understatement. I live in a different country than the usual demographic but I have found her response time to be ace. I have recommended BetterHelp to a lot of folks, though I don't know if they'll get as lucky as I was. Thanks Toni!

She's the first counselor who's allowed me to both weep and get upset with when we're tackling difficult and painful memories from my childhood. It's honestly refreshing, and very welcomed.
