About me

My name is Tonya Klemmer, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Georgia. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, from Marywood University in 2003. I've worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma/abuse, adolescent sexual behavior problems, relationships/parenting and more. Over the past 16 years as a clinician, my experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling by far is the relationship and comfort you feel with the person you choose to share your struggles with. I believe we can all grow through challenging experiences by increasing our self-awareness and recognizing our potential. It would be my privilege to work with you and help you see your true worth. We all want to be able to share our personal truths and be accepted and understood. I believe it's very important to be open-minded and non-judgmental when someone shares their personal story or experiences with me.

You are welcome to message me anytime through Better Help. The frequency with which you can have access to a counselor to work through day to day emotions and problem solving is extremely beneficial for most and a nice change from traditional outpatient counseling. I usually check messages twice each day, six days per week. I offer messaging, video and phone sessions with availability after 5pm Monday- Friday and anytime on Saturdays. Please note that what you see in my calendar may not reflect my only availability so you always want to check that out with me through messaging first.

I look forward to working with you!

Written on Mar 23, 2020 after therapy with Tonya for 8 months on issues concerning family conflicts, and grief

Tonya is absolutely amazing. She helped me figure out that I've been walking around with a misdiagnosed and untreated bipolar disorder that I was completely oblivious to for years. She's by far the best therapist I've ever worked with. After trying to make therapy work for me for years, I feel like I've finally found someone who understands me and works with me even when I'm being difficult. I highly recommend.
