Tonya has worked for over 25 years as a licensed marriage and family therapist while adding leadership coaching to her portfolio 11 years ago. Her passion is to come alongside Christian leaders and be that safe listening ear that so few of them have. Her work consists of promoting growth in emotional & relational intelligence, healing from painful life choices as well as recovering from burn out and gaining healthy skills to not return there. She primarily coaches Christian leaders and their teams around ministry/life balance, spiritual & emotional intelligence, communication & conflict resolution, building healthy team culture as well as developing personal and leadership strengths.
Her relationship with the Lord is the bedrock of her work and helping others understand His love, forgiveness, healing, and direction for their lives her great reward! She has developed specific tools for helping to improve mindsets which lead to a more positive self-concept!
Tonya is certified in the Conflict Dynamics Profile, a Strengths Champion Coach, both of which she uses with couples, leaders, and teams. She’s also a Maxwell certified coach, trainer, and speaker. She enjoys helping Christian teams find better ways of communicating and working effectively together.
