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.

Written by T.A. on Oct 26, 2021 after therapy with Toni for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and grief

I've only had ONE session with Toni and I'm already miles ahead from when I worked with a prior therapist. She's already sent me homework (which I wanted) and it's all applicable to my struggles. I feel very encouraged and hopeful.

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
