About Me

I’m Whitni Toson, a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas. My purpose as a counselor is to help people get “unstuck” by taking action. In life, sometimes we view situations based on how we “feel” and how we “think,” but what happens when our thoughts aren’t the healthiest? What happens when we respond off of that feeling? My goal is to help you find out what’s helping you get closer to your goals and what’s holding you back. I am passionate about helping individuals find peace and learn new ways to reach their goals and aspirations. I work in partnership with my clients, providing them a safe place to explore their thoughts, mutual respect, empathy, and compassion. I believe that everyone can achieve positive change and that we all have internal resources that need to be discovered. I’ve helped many people transition from hopeless to hopeful, from dependent to independent, and from fearful to comfortable. I will not lie to you and tell you that counseling is easy or a quick fix to all your problems, but I will tell you that counseling can be a catalyst for change.
