Hi! I am Chanel Toson and I hail from Newport, North Carolina. I am a double Eagle, having graduated from North Carolina Central University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Counseling. I have had the esteemed pleasure of calling Georgia home for the past 8 years and have served in my community in various capacities since planting my roots. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Grief Counseling Specialist, and working towards becoming a Registered Play Therapist. I enjoy providing counseling services for Adults, Couples, Children, and Families.
I am a woman of faith and Youth Pastor! Love is at the foundation of all that I do as I believe Mark 12:30-31 teaches us clearly- to Love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and also to Love our neighbors as ourselves. In this regard- It is my love, passion and commitment to provide love, care and support to those who are hurting, loss, feeling stuck and dealing with mental anguish.
By nature, I am a natural cheerleader! My enthusiasm and energy illuminates the room. The clients that I serve receive tangible skills and useful directives they are able to utilize in their everyday living. You too will leave feeling empowered and equipped to address your challenges because you will be heard, validated, and supported in session. With that, you will be able to make healthy changes that will impact all spheres of your life, which is my ultimate goal!
I’d be happy to walk on this journey with you.
