Specializing in Anxiety and Trauma

Only phone or video sessions (known as Telemental Health, Virtual, etc.) at this time.                                 
Let me guess, you want someone that gets you. Someone that understands what you have been struggling with. Someone that understands that you can be sitting down, calm and all of a sudden, your heart begins to beat rapidly for no reason and you are in a panic. Someone that understands that when you lay down to sleep that you cannot because of the bombardment of thoughts. Someone that understands you do not want worry to consume your life, but you do not know how to stop the thoughts. Someone that understands that you did study but when you sit down to take the test your mind goes blank. Someone that can help you to stop feeling stuck due to the past trauma. You just want to feel better!

I understand.
I want you to know. There is HOPE!

                    "People with an anxiety disorder are three to five times more likely to go to the doctor and                    six times more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders than those who do not suffer                                                                         from anxiety disorders." 

           "Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering receive treatment."

  "Sonya was one of the names I was given through my employer's Employee Assistance Program. After speaking with her and one other, I was impressed with her warm and caring attitude. Once I was under her care, she immediately knew how to treat me and my anxiety. Through her visual tools and her scripture verses, she was able to help me focus on recovery instead of what was causing the anxiety. She also explained to me in terms I could understand why the anxiety/panic attacks were happening and how to gain control and move past them. Sonya was easy to talk to, kind, considerate, and sympathetic. She also has a gift of being able to discern what is happening and summarize and synthesize and give valuable feedback. She found her true calling!"

Words can’t express how Dove Counseling has impacted my life psychologically and spiritually. Before my session with Dove Counseling, I was stagnant in a pool of brokenness, hurt and trauma. My life felt hopeless and uninspired. The healing and thorough counseling sessions placed me on a 6-month journey to wholeness. The compassion and knowledgeable insight from Sonya was invaluable. The step-by-step approach to the unraveling of emotional and psychological trauma was key to my success of healing. I now have control over my life with the skills Sonya has taught me in my effort to go forward and thrive. I have received counseling throughout the years, however never had a more knowledgeable and understanding therapist. I’m sincerely grateful for the experience and I will never be the same.
