About

Many of my clients have come to see me because they've been experiencing a range of intense emotions, often feel overwhelmed, have problems with relationships and are feeling stressed, they want to feel better about themselves and their lives. I am able to assist my clients in developing new coping strategies and setting healthy boundaries. It's my desire to help clients identify their own goals for therapy and to help them improve the quality of their day to day life. I have extensive experience working with individuals as well as families and couples. I am able to help them improve overall communication and reduce conflicts.
I meet my clients where they are at and work in a partnership with them to help them identify and meet their desired outcomes for therapy. I've been working with families for over decade and have an ability to connect with adults, kids and teens. I have years of experience collaborating with school staff and advocating for the needs of the child.
Life can get pretty overwhelming at times and there are times when you need to talk to someone who can help you manage the tough times. You are the driver, I am the passenger who is on your team to help you navigate your journey.

Tonya May Fontes's Groups

T.E.A.M. Teens

What is the TEAM Teens Groups? Many teens are challenged with experiencing anxiety, depression, and trauma. The majority of teens believe they are "in this" alone. They desire to connect with others, gain socialization, and develop skills and have a safe environment to use them. Most insurances cover the group. If the deductible is not met, or no insurance coverage, cost will be approximately $20 per teen, each group session. Please contact Alex, office manager, for more details (269) 964-0153, or Tonya Back, mental health therapist at (269) 274-8966. This is an open group, register at any time.
