One value that Toni holds to is being genuine (keeping it real). In saying that, Counseling is a collaborative effort by both the client and the counselor. They work together to set goals, find strengths, work toward solutions, and mindfully make changes. This is done by looking at oneself as a whole, exploring mind, feelings, emotions, physical body, and spirit.
An individual’s belief construct is how they view the word around them, make decisions, and participate in culture and society as a whole. With that being said, Faith based counseling is an option at the request of the client.
