Tonia Adams, MS, LPC, LMHC

Tonia N. Adams


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.

I look forward to working with you!





Toshiko Kondo
| Email

 Toshiko’s natural sincerity is reflected in her work and the attitude she brings to her work.  Cranio-sacral therapy is a subtle but powerful approach to core issues. The therapy works on multiple levels:  physical, emotional, and spiritual.  Ideally, we would all be balanced. Toshiko brings her love of aikido into all aspects of her life, thereby supporting the discovery of inner strength and wisdom. Her work assists clients who wish to connect inner and outer in their quest for health and improved quality of life.Cranio-sacral therapy can be helpful for those who cannot have other types of massage due to discomfort relating to pain or physical awkwardness.  Her touch is very gentle and the work is performed with the client fully clothed and draped with a sheet or blanket. Because cranio-sacral work is gentle, it can be beneficial for accident victims where movement or touch could aggravate pain.  Cranio-sacral work also relieves stress by unraveling the trauma.  It also supports the immune system. Toshiko is also trained in structural integration.  She has often seen excellent results by combining cranio-sacral work with structural integration.  The results tend to last longer and act at a deeper level.Toshiko listens with an open heart, is deeply respectful, and has an instinctive desire to protect all beings.
