Hi there! Congratulations to you for taking the first step toward a happier and healthier way of being. I’m Tonya and I’d like to be your therapist. I am a licensed professional, certified school counselor and national certified counselor licensed in Texas, I have over 19 years of experience working as a therapist and school counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, parenting problems, and career challenges over a wide span of ages and developmental stages.
My counseling style is nurturing, supportive, and encouraging with a side of humor. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. We are all more than the labels society tries to put on us and we can redefine ourselves with the help of the right therapist. My approach combines solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and psychodynamic therapy. But my theory and approach is second to your unique and specific needs. I am here to serve you and support you in achieving your personal goals in therapy.
I look forward to working with you!

Tonya has been fantastic support me as I work through some pretty large life changes. She empowers me to find my own answers and sets me up with “homework” to move me towards the goals that I have for expanding my personal communication and the exploration and acceptance of my true feelings. We’ve been working together for a couple of months and our time together has already been invaluable. She is, hands down, my favorite therapist that I have worked with.
Tonya is great! She is funny and very good at communicating. She has helped me learn to use "I" messages, which has been very useful. I am glad to be working with her!
