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 9 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 more than 12 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 evidence-based strategies, including cognitive behavioral, emotionally-focused, solution-focused, strength-based therapies with Existential, Jungian-influenced theories for a more holistic approach to therapy. Dream analysis for problem-solving is a particular passion.
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 has been so helpful to me…her calm, compassionate voice and support, practical suggestions and follow up to our sessions with articles and education has been invaluable to me. I really enjoy the chat feature of Better Help where we can communicate through the week, making each real time session even more productive and focused. So glad I found Better Help and Toni.
