More about me

Licensing: EdD, LPC, LCPC
Years in Practice: 25
State: VA

I am a licensed professional counselor with a Masters Degree in Counseling from Virginia Tech, a Post-Master’s Certificate in Counselor Education from the University of Maryland, and a Doctorate in Higher Education from Morgan State University. My passion for the mental health fields comes from being a part of a person’s journey of transformation, from the beginning point of confusion and frustration to the end goal of direction and confidence. It is truly a privilege to witness my clients’ discovery process as they identify their definition of success and move forward to achieving their goals and dreams.

I have 25 years experience treating adults and adolescents 13+ with various mental health and adjustment issues including anxiety, depression, and mood disorders. I specialize in assisting individuals and couples navigate life transitions related to relationships, parenting, workplace and career issues, and grief and loss. The diverse clients I have assisted include individuals and couples of all ages, racial and ethnic backgrounds, and sexual orientations.

I take a person-centered and holistic approach to better understand where clients are developmentally. I also use an integrative approach in customizing a treatment plan that works best for each client. CBT and strengths-based therapy are often utilized in helping clients identify goals and develop solutions that are meaningful to them.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Dr. Osmond has been helping me managing my depression and anxiety. I feel like she listens and truly understands my struggles. She provides great advice and resources to help me manage my conditions. I would certainly recommend her.

I started seeing Tonya at a very dark time in my life and found her support to be extremely helpful. Meeting with her really feels like being a part of a team, where the two of you are working together as equals towards the same goal, and I really appreciate that. She offered some great ideas to improve my daily health and functioning, and she was respectful and flexible when I told her which ideas worked for me and which ones didn't. She even gave me some advice on my job hunt and resume, which was very helpful when I needed to get out of a rut.

Tonya is a wonderful therapist. I've worked with a lot of different therapists, but this is the first time in awhile that I've really had a good fit. I'm in the midst of a bunch of different intersecting problems, and she has done an excellent job of breaking it down, asking the right questions, and helping to make a plan for improving my wellbeing. She has been very helpful in talking me through both the emotional and practical issues related to my chronic illness. I feel like she is really listening to me and considering my strengths and weaknesses, rather than just tossing out "one-size-fits-all" advice. Working with Tonya feels very collaborative, like we are working together as a team to identify problems and find solutions.

N.A.·Jan 27, 2021


I came to Tonya with a specific, but deeply entrenched, problem that I'd been unable to solve on my own. After several sessions with her, I had a clear path forward. Tonya was empathetic and insightful. I felt like she really listened to me and respected where I was coming from. She is LGBTQ competent, and I felt comfortable talking about my religious practices with her although we are from different backgrounds. She was extremely helpful and I would absolutely recommend her as a counselor.
