I have been a licensed professional counselor and life coach in Georgia with over 6 years of experience . I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, low self esteem, career challenges, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and adjustment and life functioning for people with disabilities . I have lots of information and resources around these areas in addition to counseling expertise. I have also helped people who have experienced grief and loss, trauma, and life transitions such as graduating from college and moving into the"real world", becoming new parents, or significant other stressors including break up and divorce. My counseling style is warm and empathetic and I use a cognitive behavioral approach, which means that I will help you to get insight how you think about things so you can take actions that improve your mental and emotional well being. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you!
I am looking forward to meeting you and working with you!

Before I started my counselling with Tonya I was really struggling. She has helped me so much by listening to me and by challenging my thoughts when they did not serve me. Not only did I feel a gradual sense of improvement, I felt like she really understood. She has guided me to kinder to myself, and has helped me so much with improve my mindset. I am so grateful for her service!
Counseling with Tonya was one of the best decision I've made. I needed someone by my side while I was going through a lot of changes. Tonya was always there to reassure me and she helped me realize that I don't have to be afraid to step up and take action against things that does not serve me anymore. During this journey I chose to listen to my feelings and to let the wind take me where it wanted. There is still a long way ahead of me, but equiped with the right tools and the right mindset it will be a lot easier.
Tonya is caring, understanding and has been able to break down situations in a way that make sense to me. I highly recommend Tonya to anyone who needs counseling.
i love our sessions! she’s really helping me on my journey :)
Tonya has been a life saver for me. 2020 was the straw that broke the camels back but in hind sight I’m so thankful for 2020 because it brought me Tonya. Our main goal is more self love and wow has it been life changing. Getting rid of toxic relationships and habits has been so freeing. I know without her I would still be repeating the same patterns. I’m so glad I decided to take a leap and start counseling with Tonya 5 months ago my life is forever better because of it!!!!
I am very grateful for Tonya's consistent support and her kindness. She has helped me learn to believe in my own abilities and feel less anxious about achieving my goals. For most of my life I have felt like I don't matter, but Tonya has helped me overcome this belief and she is always patient and compassionate throughout the process. I would recommend her to anyone who is struggling with their self esteem.
Tonya is the best therapist I have ever worked with. She is kind and supportive and validates your feelings while simultaneously asking hard questions and providing sound advice.

I would highly recommend working with Tonya. She can really make a difference.
I have been working with Tonya for about 2 months. On issues revolving around anxiety and learning to love myself, it's been a long road and I still have more to go but I'm thankful she has been there to walk this road with me.
