About me

Hi,
My name is Toni Bailey. I strive to help individuals with authentic emotional awareness and healing with personalized treatment.
I am a licensed professional counselor and therapist who has been providing mental health services directly to people for over 7 years. Counting my work in the the mental health field 3 years prior to earning my Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I have directly helped people in this profession for 10 years. I have worked successfully with clients of all ages, who presented with a wide range of challenges, including the emotions related to stress, family and relational issues, trauma and abuse, career difficulties, caregiver stressors, grief and coping with life changes.
As a person-centered therapist, I meet you wherever you are in your personal journey with compassion and unconditional support (no judgment) to assist in addressing the effects of stressors, to improve communication, and strengthen effective strategies to better cope with obstacles to mindfulness and joyful living.
I approach therapy with warmth and flexible support and an eclectic style that blends several evidence-based strategies, including cognitive behavioral, emotionally-focused, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused and strength-based therapies.

Since the therapeutic alliance between counselor and client is the strongest factor in success, I collaborate with you to tailor sessions to your specific needs and to create treatment goals to address your unique circumstances. I will consider adding or adapting my schedule to accommodate special needs where possible.
It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards effective coping and positive change. I am here to support and empower you in that journey.

Toni is a fabulous therapist. She asks thought provoking questions, really seeks to understand the situation, is validating, and is a joy to talk to. I felt an immediate rapport with her. She offers great resource suggestions like books and activities, which I really appreciated. She has a very kind spirit and was exactly what I needed in a therapist. I was able to meet my therapy goals quickly thanks to her encouragement and insight.

Toni has been so attentive and supportive. She validates me, encourages me, provides me with additional resources, and has done so much to help me cope with and process the struggles I’ve been dealing with. I’ve never felt this supported by a therapist and I am so grateful I found her!!

Knowing, despite life’s circumstances, that even if it’s essentially a stranger, you have someone to rely on when you’re at your darkest moments - that’s truly life changing. Life saving.
Toni is so easy to talk with and just absolutely wonderful. I feel like I went from 0 to 100 with her on my openness, as it felt like she has been here all along and I was simply filling her in. She makes me feel seen, heard, understood and genuinely valued, which has been vital in my mental health journey and healing from my past.

Work with me!
