I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over ten years of mental health experience, and I am a military officer. My education includes a B.S. in psychology, a Masters in Health Service Administration, a Masters in Social Work, and I am an Integrated Behavioral Health Doctoral Candidate with five years studying integrated care.
I use a holistic approach and solution-focused approach when providing therapy to my clients which involves assessing if a client has co-morbid issues such as diabetes and depression or chronic pain and anxiety. I believe it is vital to assist clients with health management while addressing mental health issues. I am caring and compassionate and recognize that there is still a stigma associated with seeking mental health treatment. As a result, I appreciate anyone that takes time to care for their state of mind as it is just as important as maintaining physical health. Additional treatment modalities that I use include mindfulness practice, dialectal behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing.
In addition to providing services to the civilian population, I also have experience working with the military community to include Active Duty, Reserves, National Guard, and Veterans. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, personality disorders; i.e., borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorders, trauma, sexual abuse, self-esteem issues, and PTSD. I also have experience working with couple who have marital discord, clients dealing with substance abuse issues, adjustment problems, grief and loss, and work-related stressors.

Sonya is the best ! She has helped us with our relationship, I recommend her. She is a great listener and give us the tools to work on our problems.
Sonya Boone is the best counselor I’ve ever had. She is at a great listener and always offers ways to cope with our issues. Would definitely recommend her to others.
Sonya provides a neutral sounding board for couples. She listened and asked the right questions. She gave great homework that really honed in on our areas of improvement. Through therapy I discovered that I did not want to continue the relationship. Sonya was able to provide a couple joint sessions and a couple individual sessions to close out the relationship which really helped out.
She’s just great.
Sonya has definitely found her calling. She is an incredible listener, immediately pinpoints our problems even when we don’t see them ourselves, and offers actionable solutions. She has taken us from what we felt was a situation with no good prospects to one where we have hope, optimism, and a united mindset. She is an incredible counselor and we are very grateful for her.
We are off to a good start with Ms. Boone, she is providing us some very useful tools to use as we embark on this journey of marriage counseling. Her active listening skills are apparent based on the feedback she gives with practical solution based guidance. She provides workbooks that my wife and I can use to tackle marital as well as individuals obstacles that only help improve our overall situation. I would recommend her to any and everyone regardless of your need.
My husband and I absolutely love Sonya! We bonded with her immediately and she has been very helpful!
I have just begun recently with Sonya, but so far, I have been so encouraged by her wisdom and expertise. I have posted several messages and she always responds to them in a timely manner. I also appreciate how she has pointed me toward the Lord and His ways! She is kind and compassionate, but also honest and speaks the truth in love. I'm thankful for her!
