PLEASE NOTE: Tonya Girard, LMFT is not accepting new clients at this time.
As a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), I provide a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach to mental health care, which identifies the individual as an inherent part of an impactful, more extensive system. Trained in Family Systems Theory, I incorporate a person-centered, solution-focused approach, which is concerned with the overall long-term well-being of individuals, couples, and their families across the life cycle. I believe that a preventative approach to well-being is crucial in today’s changing health care climate. My practice emphasizes the fluid incorporation of an eclectic set of evidence-based techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral methods, Emotion-Focused and Narrative Therapy techniques, psychoeducational resources, Motivational Interviewing (MI), family systems theory, and mindfulness practice, and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). Exploring creative perspectives and problem-solving techniques to help my clients find an individualized balance between academic, professional, and personal life is an underlying objective with the service I provide to my clients.
