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!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Toni Autrey. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

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.

Toni has been great at being inquisitive of my thoughts almost on a daily baisis. Even when I don't answer within the amount of time I usually do, she is persistent with me. She appears to be transparent and respectful. So far I feel like I have benefited from her help and I am grateful to have someone I trust who listens and supports me in processing my trauma and negative thoughts associated with past memories.

Work with me!
