Tonia Adams, MS, LPC, LMHC

I believe hope and authenticity play an ever-present role in our journeys. By resolving core issues, I help people explore “What does it look like to be me?” My passion is to provide counseling through an existential approach by finding meaning in life from suffering and increasing awareness and potential for choice.

I practice in both Texas and Washington state. I hold a Master of Science Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and am a Licensed Professional Counselor (TX-LPC) and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (WA-LMHC).

I have life experience dealing with a family history of death, divorce, terminal illness, and alcoholism. I also have worked with religious abuse and offer Christian-based counseling. I have counseled clients to navigate anxiety and depression, boundary issues, divorce, grief, narcissism, neurocognitive disorders, relationship conflict, schizophrenia, shame, and suicidal ideation. I love conducting psycho-educational groups and have taught Theft Diversion, Life Skills, Money Management, and facilitated a Mental Health Supportive Outpatient Program (SOP) for Texas probation requirements as well as worked with the Denton County Mental Health Treatment Court in Texas.

Our past does not define us; it is what we do with our circumstances that molds our character. We always have a choice in how we respond to life. “When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” ― Viktor E. Frankl, psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor, Man's Search for Meaning. My heart is to provide a non-judgmental and compassionate safe place to guide clients in finding their authentic selves by integrating spiritual, emotional, physical and social aspects of their beings to live a more fulfilling life.
