Written on Sep 11, 2022 after therapy with Tonia for 8 months on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, grief, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Tonia Green is a perfect match for me and my needs in a therapist. I greatly appreciate her directness, her excellent listening skill, and her ability to see to the heart of the matter. These are the reasons why I became her client again after a six-month break (financial reasons) -- like the old saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't fix it! I've made so much progress with her help, and the future looks so much better as a result.

She doesn't sugar coat anything. She keeps me thinking about my goals with a realistic and very caring view. She has made me realize things about myself and my behavior that I have never been called out on. I feel calmer and I definitely learned how to communicate better with my partner. Talking to her has made me realize the things that are in my control and how my feelings are valid.
