Vince "Toivo" Mikkola

(LPC, MC, NCC)

About Me

Hello, my name is Toivo Mikkola. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Arizona with 5 years experience providing counseling services. My professional experience includes working with clients of all ages with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, Bi-polar, grief/loss, relationship issues, etc. I have provided therapy in various setting including inpatient, outpatient , residential, and private practice settings.

My goal with therapy is to support every client in their pursuit of any healthy goal or change they wish to achieve. Every person deserves to live a fulfilled life (whatever that means to you), but anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, grief/loss, etc sometimes make that life seem unobtainable. I believe that with consistent and nonjudgmental support, every person can overcome those obstacles to obtain the life they deserve.

I use a person-centered approach to therapy as I believe clients should decide the direction of their therapy. I offer honesty, humor, connection, humility and willingness to support and accompany any person through whatever pain they are experiencing. If you need someone to listen, teach you coping skills, give you high fives, or call you on your sh...stuff...I can do that. I'm also trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy to focus on trauma related issues. Please reach out. I'd love to help anyway I can.

Great non-judgmental therapist. Listens fully and just wants you to succeed.

Vince is receptive and kind. Getting more from this counselor than I have from others.

Toivo Mikkola is a fantastic therapist. He is very good at listening and making me feel heard, while still telling me what I need to hear. It has been nice to be able to message instead of meet in person. I don’t always have time and find that I can be shy in person at first. This has given me the confidence to talk to a therapist. I would recommend Toivo to anyone looking for an understanding, flexible therapist who genuinely has your best interest in kind.
