About Tonya Moore

About Tonya Moore

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in the state of Illinois and Indiana. Since 2013, I have specialized in relationship dynamics and dysfunctions treating adult individuals and couples, mental and emotional disturbances, trauma, and abuse rooted in poor or unhealthy relationships. I want to help you develop a healthy self and teach you how to balance feelings and thoughts; and intimacy and autonomy in your relationships.

My goal in therapy is to walk alongside you. Whether you are suffering from anxiety or depression, dealing with a dysfunctional relationship, exhibiting negative interaction patterns, suffering from inter-generational family trauma, or traumatic stress experienced in a current or past relationship, I help you manage and improve your quality of life.

I use a holistic and integrative approach that focuses on body, mind, and spirit utilizing evidence-based treatments. I firmly believe that the therapeutic relationship is key to the healing process. Therefore, I welcome a safe, comfortable, competent, and trusted environment throughout our time together.

In addition to providing psychotherapy, I offer marriage enrichment workshops and pre-marital preparation to pre-engaged, engaged, or married (three years or less) couples as weekly sessions or weekend group intensives.

*If you are searching for a therapist with a Christian perspective, I received specialized training in integrating biblical-based Christian principles with psychological principles to offer Christian counseling upon your request.
