Hi! I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in the state of South Carolina. I am also a certified Health Coach and Life Coach. I have six years of experience as a practicing therapist working in private and public agencies, as well as, hospitals. I have a great deal of experience working with those who are coping with depression, stress and anxiety, grief and loss, and parenting issues. Relationship problems, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with addiction are also specialties of mine. I am a mother of four children, two of which were adopted, and the wife of a career serviceman. I personally know the unique challenges of military life and have received extensive training in this area. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, going to the beach, and visiting new places. I love animals and have two dogs and three cats!
My counseling style is warm, genuine and collaborative. I believe in treating others in the same manner in which I would like to be treated. I meet clients where they are in life and work from that place. I feel honored when someone shares their personal struggles with me and in turn treat them with the utmost respect. I work very hard to be open-minded and non-judgmental. My approach combines evidence -based cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and family systems therapies. We will work together to create a treatment plan that meets your individual needs and goals.
It is very difficult to take the first step toward feeling better and I applaud you for doing so. When you are ready to take the next step, I would love for us to work together. It would be a privilege to take this personal journey with you. I have day and evening times available. I am available by live chat, phone, and video.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Tonia Cassaday. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Very helpful, friendly, good listener and good service.
I’ve only had a few sessions with Mrs Cassaday but I feel like she completely understands where I’m coming from and, best of all, with no judgement.
Tonia is amazing. She's great at what she does, offers reasonable advice and perspective. She is also very easy to communicate with and makes the atmosphere comfortable for vulnerability.
Love Tonia and she helps me tremendously every week. I have recommended her and Betterhelp to family.
Tonia is truly the best therapist I've ever had. In such a short period of time, she's helped me navigate through an intense season of grief, and also to honor my boundaries in all of my relationships. She has a warm, solutions-driven approach and working with her has made me feel more empowered overall. Her intelligence and honesty shine in every interaction I've had with her. If you're looking for a therapist with a warm, conversational approach, look no further than Tonia. I can't make lofty promises, but I can certainly say she's helping me make changes in my life for the better.
Tonia is the best therapist I have found in 20 years. She is knowledgeable and empathetic. I feel I have grown in just a couple of months. I am better able to recognize my triggers and navigate complex relationships from a grounded space. I highly recommend her.
She very understanding
Tonia is an absolutely wonderful counselor. Very attentive and uses a plethora of methods. Challenges me to be better every time we talk. Could not dream of better.
Tonia is an excellent therapist that really cares for me. She is well-educated, but she is also a learner as well and constantly open to new ideas. She is a breath of fresh air.
First timer to therapy and totally satisfied with my therapist, Tonia Cassady. She answers all of my questions, concerns, has suggested a couple books to learn more, is full of insights and suggestions garnered from her years of experience. I am completely satisfied, look forward to our future sessions, know I will accomplish the 2 goals that brought me to BetterHelp in the first place. She is an excellent match for me.
Tonia is awesome! She doesn’t feel like a therapist, she feels like a concerned family member.
Tonia is very friendly and caring, she has helped me regain my confidence and let go of things that have been dragging me down for years!
I love Tonia. She is great! I highly recommend her.
Tonia- has been the best therapist I could have asked for. One of the best decisions I have made was to try this app to find her. She is professional, very factual, and knowledgeable. I look forward to working with her every week and have already gained so much from our sessions.
Tonia and I clicked from our first session. She is easy to talk to, listens to what I have to say, offers different approaches on how to deal with my issues, and is a great listener. She has been able to walk through issues with me and together we have come up with ways to resolve them that actually work. I am grateful for her!
I just started with Tonia this was my second session and I enjoy talking with her and she listens and understands how I feel.
Tonia is a wonderful counselor and friend. She uses great reflective listening and I can tell she truly cares. She is very insightful and offers wonderful cognitive behavioral exercises. Since working with Tonia I feel so much better in my daily life. I highly recommend her.
Tonia is great! Takes time to break your concerns and stressors down to come up with a plan with you.
Very caring and understanding. Love working with her!
Tonia got me through several very difficult weeks. She is an expert at obtaining history from her clients... I have never had a therapist who I think knows me as well as Tonia does, in such a short period of time. Highly recommend!
Tonia has been a big help in helping me to manage my anxiety and deal with everyday situations as well as making herself available frequently via text and phone calls
I’ve been receiving therapy with Ms. Tonia and she is great
Intuitive with practical approach. Highly recommend.
Extremely professional and intelligent. Offered unique and effective solutions other therapists have missed. The best money I have spent in a long time!
Amazing super nice lady. Great listener but also great conversation. I highly recommend her to anyone. She actually seems like she cares.
My time spent with Tonia Cassiaday has helped me heal and start to understand why I am feeling the way I feel. I am so appreciative of her work and the time she spends helping me become a better me.
