About me

Hello, my name is Toni Dobek.

I have worked as a counselor for about 20 years. I have experience working with children to older adults and have conducted individual, couples, group and family therapy throughout my career. I am currently licensed in North Carolina as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (# 11764).

I consider myself a person-centered therapist meaning that I focus on providing an empathic, non-judgmental and safe place for individuals to share feelings. I work with individuals to accept who they are, take responsibility and identify his/her strengths to work through issues. I tend to use various counseling techniques to meet the specific needs of each individual. Some of the techniques that I have used are Cognitive-Behavioral, Gestalt Exercises, Anger Management, disability services, coping skills for Depression and anxiety and strategies for building self-esteem.

I achieved my highest degree, which is a Master of Science Degree, specifically in Counselor Education from Syracuse University in May of 1999. Also, I completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Services Counseling from Old Dominion University in 1993.

I believe in advocating for others, and I am excited to use technology as a tool to reach out to you.
I truly look forward to speaking with you and providing a positive support in your life.

She is incredible and a vital part of my sanity!

Tonight I had my last session with Toni, which was bittersweet. She has done a great job of helping me put my life in order. As I said to her I had all the puzzle pieces but Toni has helped me to complete the jigsaw.

Toni has been a rock through the last 15 months. My left a toxic marriage and moved into a rental. I have worked hard with Toni's help to find myself and move forward in a positive way. I have met the love of my life now and we are in the process of buying our own home. I could not have done this without Toni. Every week she has helped me to work through my problems, of which there has been many, from toxic ex, to medical issues with my adult daughter, my adult kids squabbling with me playing piggy in the middle. Toni has been there as my anchor in stormy seas.

I will miss my weekly sessions with her as we always end the session laughing.

I cannot recommend Toni enough, she is amazing and somehow always has the ability to help me see the solution.

If I could I would score Toni 11 out of 10. :)

Miss. Toni allowed me to get control of my life back. She is supportive, understanding and she cares so much. Always listening and caring about my feelings, I couldn’t thank her enough for all she has done to get my mental health on the right track.

Toni is incredible supporting and welcoming. Her sessions have made me feeling very calmed and relaxed knowing that she's listening and trying to make sense of what I know I need to work on. I can't recommend Toni enough
