Professional statement

Tiona Washington is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in Charlotte, NC. Tiona enjoys helping individuals, couples, and families implement meaningful long-term change into their lives. She works with clients who feel the impact of traumatic experiences or painful memories, supporting them as they process through the past and move ahead towards a joyful, engaging life. She also works with clients who have stressful lives, whether that’s from their careers, family roles, or self-imposed expectations.



Tiona creates a warm, personable atmosphere each session so that clients feel comfortable talking openly about what’s on their minds. She believes that there’s no such thing as “perfect” – and that we’re all perfectly imperfect in our own unique ways, but that’s what makes us special. She is a strengths-based therapist who helps clients learn more about themselves and explore their mental health goals. Clients learn how to identify and label their emotions, especially in times of distress. They also practice effective coping skills and grow their self-care practices, boosting their resilience.



Tiona earned a Master’s degree in Counseling, as well as a Master’s degree in Human Resources. She has over 20 years of experience working with people and is passionate about helping clients implement effective strategies to feel content and fulfilled in their daily lives. She is a transparent, open-minded therapist who builds strong trust with each client as they work through what’s happening in their lives.
