About Me

I have been a licensed professional counselor and professional life coach in Georgia with over 8 years of experience . I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, low self esteem, communication challenges, 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.

I have also helped people who have experienced grief and loss, family trauma such as abuse, recovering from significant other relationships that were emotionally abusive, life transitions such as graduating from college and moving into the"real world" to begin "adulting", becoming new parents, or significant other stressors including break ups and divorce.

One of my specialty areas in the area of career is helping people to eliminate self doubt so they can overcome plateaus in terms of creating a more fulfilling career and/ or business and hitting some of those goals that have eluded them. Sometimes people are stuck and desire help to move out of that space and reach for goals that feel scary but would make all the difference to their career growth. This is what we do here. The focus would be topics such as discovering your purpose, giving yourself permission to go after your goals and finding out what the source of the self doubt is so you can move forward and stop sabotaging yourself, creating an executable plan, and more. If this career specialty area sounds like what you need, let me know and I can work with you on getting past your stuck point by helping you boost your self confidence.

My 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 sessions to meet your unique and specific needs, giving you tools that work for you!

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!

Tonya has become a vital part of my healing. She has been an amazing listener and having someone empathise with my emotions has been the big step I needed to move forward. She has a way of pointing out key takeaways during my venting sessions. She has been a great overall support even when I’ve had to reschedule last minute.

Written on Oct 04, 2022 after therapy with Tonya for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I enrolled in therapy with Tonya about ten months ago because of various life struggles I wanted to unpack, understand and overcome. I also was struggling with anxiety, depression, and poor self-esteem. Tonya was great support and a perfect match for me - she is very professional, I felt that I can fully rely on her, and the methods she used in therapy were trustworthy. I also felt very comfortable during these sessions - she was always present and cared about me and my mental well-being. Tonya has a very empathetic approach - I never felt judged by her. She also gave me a space to analyze myself, understand my feelings and come to my own conclusions by listening and sharing the right tools and support. Thanks to her, I feel more confident about myself and not scared anymore to experience life and the various emotions that come along. It is also important to mention that English is not my native language, but we both understood each other very well. I highly recommend Tonya - she is an amazing Therapist.
Thank you Tonya!

I have been working with Tonya for a few months now. She has been really helpful in helping me learn new strategies and tools to work on when I am in a depressive period, as well as to be able to continue to work through my grief. Tonya is a great listener and is able to figure out what I am trying to get across, even when I am unable to articulate my issue clearly. I have learned to notice and award my wins and growth over the past couple months, as well as to be able to say it's ok if something didn't quite go how I wanted to. She is awesome, and has really helped me, and I am super grateful for her.
