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!
- Stress, Anxiety

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.
