Estimated: 2 minutes to read

We are pleased to introduce you to Toni Gary, LPC, who recently joined LifeWorks Psychotherapy as a therapist. Here, read her mini welcome interview:

How did you first learn about LifeWorks?
I actually learned about LifeWorks through the Green House. I was looking for ways to expand my professional development and a colleague of mine sent me an email she received from a listserv.

What drew you to LifeWorks?
I was drawn to the open and inviting way LW creates space for those who often have to fight for spaces when showing up. There is something for everyone.

What do you hope to gain at LifeWorks? How do you imagine it will impact your future?
I want to gain more knowledge on proper ways to serve communities that are often overlooked or marginalized. Working in this setting will give me an opportunity to learn more about myself as well which will expand my therapeutic framework for the future.

In the short amount of time since you joined LifeWorks, what has surprised you most and why?
I have been pleasantly surprised by how open and inviting LifeWorks is. Both master’s level and doctorate level clinicians work together seamlessly – that, and the level of autonomy and personal freedom. It will definitely take some getting used to but having the ability to spread out on my own is a great feeling.

Welcome, Toni! We’re grateful to have you. To learn more about Toni and see if she may be the right fit for your needs, visit her bio page here.
