Hi there! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Arizona and Virginia. In addition, I am a Licensed Substance Abuse Treatment Practitioner in Virginia. I love working with people of diverse backgrounds who may be struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse/dependency, trauma and adjustment stress.
My counseling approach is open and friendly. I encourage my clients to express themselves freely and to ask whatever questions they many need to. I primarily utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing techniques in my work, although I adapt techniques to meet each clients unique needs. I work collaboratively with each client to develop a treatment plan that works for them and to set realistic goals for positive change.
I believe it takes courage to step outside of one’s comfort zone to ask for help. I am here to partner with you on your journey to wellness. I look forward to working with you!

I am truly fortunate to have found a counselor who consistently offers a safe and comfortable space for me to open up about my concerns. Sonya Bryce punctuality is remarkable, as she always show up on time for our sessions. This combination of a secure environment and reliability has greatly contributed to my positive experience and progress in therapy thus far.
