Hello, my name is Tonya Hillman and I would love to help guide you through many of life’s challenges. Having worked for nine years as a Licensed Professional Counselor in two states, Missouri
and Alabama, and currently working towards my Ph.d in Counseling Education and Supervision, I have had the opportunity to work with individuals and couples on a multitude of platforms.
These platforms include relationship development, coping with anxiety and depression, working to manage bi-polar disorder, processing trauma, and coping with loss and grief. I model my counseling style to be warm, inviting, nonjudgmental, attentive, and drawing primarily from the Cognitive-Behavior approach. This approach identifies the negativity within your life and helps you to process and change these thoughts through behavioral changes and coping strategies.
Seeking help for today’s challenges is an important and sometimes difficult decision and not one I take lightly. I will develop a specific treatment plan based on your needs to help you accomplish your therapeutic goals. I am here for you.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Coping with life changes
I also have experience in LGBT, Relationship issues, Trauma and abuse, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder, ADHD

Tonya has really taken time to listen to my concerns and observe my needs and has established a good routine to help me in my day to day life.
I feel comfortable speaking with Tonya. She listens well, asks questions and provides feedback that is helpful. I would definitely recommend Tonya.
Tonya was always there! Very professional and helpful in some of the most stressful moments of my life. Definitely contact her if you need that support in moments of depression and loneliness.
We've only had one session so far, but in that session, she was able to ease my concerns about a number of issues I thought were bigger than they actually were and brought another one to my attention that I did not realize was an issue. We had a wonderful session - very enlightening. She is most insightful, caring, compassionate, engaging and I loved our first session.
She is great and I have truly appreciated her help. She genuinely cares about my well being and has been a huge help.
Tonya is very attentive to my needs, especially when it comes to communication and getting to the root of what my issues are and what I want to improve about my life. She is very non-judgmental, but one of the things I like most about her is that she doesn’t shy away from the truth. She always tells me what I need to hear, even if she thinks it might be uncomfortable at first, and that’s a quality I think everyone needs in a counselor. I don’t feel that I would have made the progress I’ve made today without Tonya’s knowledge and expertise. From what I’ve experienced, she truly cares about helping her clients overcome their obstacles.
She was very helpful and accommodating for my needs.
Tonya is a great listener, she helps me to identify and isolate the issue so that I can work towards it. She also points out when I’m making progress and makes me feel better whenever our session is done. She takes an interest in my personal life and pushes me to strive towards new or unexpected things. I have definitely made progress since meeting her. Every day is a struggle but I now know that I can get through it and that there is no shame in asking for help.
Tonya is THE BEST!! She is super easy to talk to and listens extremely well. She is very interactive. Answers messages timely and helpfully. It’s only been a short time but I already feel better.
Tonya understands what I’m going through and is very supportive. She is honest with me about the longevity of dealing with my grief but she is here along the journey.
Tonya has been wonderful, she has helped me gain insight into the problems I struggle with and is an awesome therapist. Always on time, engaging, and helpful. Would recommend her to anyone.
Tonya has been extremely understanding regarding my concerns and fears; thanks to our work together I have learned to control my anxiety and worries. Thank you Tonya!
Ms. Tonya has been vital to my time at school this semester. She has helped me by offering exercises and advise to aid in managing anxiety and stress. I appreciate her beyond words.
Tonya always answers me when I need her, and is always on time for our appointments. She takes the time to listen and give thoughtful feedback even when I need her at random times.
Tonya is fantastic. Certified therapist that is very personable and relates to problems. HIGHLY recommend!
It has been amazing the change I have seen in myself working with Tonya in just the 3 short weeks we have been working together. She is positive and encouraging. She always follows up and checks on me. I would recommend to anyone who needs someone on the outside to speak with.
