It's so great that you decided to reach out!
My name is Toni Rose Verdejo, LMHC. I have a Masters in Counseling Psychology. I have a range of experience, not in only in types of concerns but also in methods of counseling. I was a therapist on a hotline in the Albany, NY area for several years and trained others in hotline counseling too. I have worked with individuals, group, and families a therapist in traditional mental health clinics and also in their respective homes over the last few years. I currently supervise a team of family therapist in the NYC area doing home based therapy for high risk families.
My treatment approach is to truly meet people where they are and explore what they want to be. As a therapist I often use humor, metaphors, and tend to be down to earth when doing therapy. I aim to be myself, so you can feel comfortable being yourself. I use a range of approaches including CBT, Motivational Interviewing, and Active Listening to assist people in reaching their goals and potential. I believe counseling is a joint venture between the counselor and person to overcome our barriers to reach the goals we set. I have experience with working with people with serious and persistent mental health diagnoses, depression, anxiety, grief, career counseling, adjusting to major life events, trauma, parent-child conflict, racial trauma, family discord, substance use, and so much more.
When I am not working, you can find me trying new restaurants, hanging out with family and my closest friends, and traveling. I love a great flight deal!

She is kind and compassionate. It's my first time seeking therapy and she made the experience really comfortable.
I just love her, I keep fighting because she has showed me I can fight the fight.
Toni is a great listener and good at keeping up with messages. She makes me feel comfortable and is totally fine going at my pace and reads all my long messages. I prefer usuing just chat and live chat and she never pressures me to go beyond my comfort zone. Thanks Toni!
Toni is extremely professional and excels at her job. She makes me feel like a priority when I need to reschedule or schedule an extra session. She responds promptly and has provided me with helpful resources to deal with my anxiety and worries. I would definitely recommend both her and BetterHelp to anyone looking for online therapy/counseling.
Toni was patient and understanding. She asked excellent questions. I would highly recommend her.
