I Believe

We are all here to learn to connect with ourselves, others and the planet with kindness and compassion.

About Toni Parker

We’re a lot alike, you and me. Just like you, I want to be happy, feel appreciated and live a meaningful purpose-driven life, surrounded by loved ones. We all want the same things; no matter whom we are, or where we come from, we all crave and seek out feeling “connected.” 

I believe a greater understanding of the inner workings of your brain, your emotional self, and your compassionate self leads to a more connected, focused, productive life. Most importantly, this connectivity contributes to your overall well being, enabling more compassion and understanding towards yourself, others and the planet. 

I am committed to providing you with the knowledge, practices, new science, exercises and tools it takes to create and sustain connected, fun loving, thriving, personal and professional relationships. 

I have had the honor of working through and experiencing every cycle of life with people, from the beginning of life—with women while they were giving birth—to teaching parenting classes, working with adolescents, couples and individuals dealing with relationships issues and depression, to working with cancer patients, and along with their families when their loved ones transition. 

As a licensed psychotherapist and certified clinical sexologist, with over 25 years of experience, I keep a pulse on the trials, tribulations and celebrations of life by continuing to work with individuals, communities, Fortune 500 companies and special interest groups. Trained by John Gottman, I am also a certified Gottman therapist and Gottman workshop leader and educator. 

Along with my work in the trenches, I’m also trained in various forms of meditation and self-compassion to help release anxiety, depression and other daily stressors of life. Staying current on mind-body approaches and key professional and clinical memberships allows me to stay on top of emerging science and practices within my profession that can help you.
