Tonya Anderson is a mindfulness counselor, inspirational speaker and the founder of An Exquisite Life. She helps people using mindfulness and sacred therapies to resolve stress/trauma in their lives, and frees them to live a life with renewed joy, love and passion for life.

Tonya Anderson

Tonya’s expertise is drawn from her life experience, clinical mental health counseling education and spiritual teachings. She assists her clients in navigating their stress symptoms to create healthier, more balanced lives, and relationships. Tonya’s philosophy is that a person can overcome stress/trauma in a natural, holistic way, respecting all support systems in place, or creating new ones.

She has been working with clients with PTSD since 2002, shortly after 9/11. She takes her clients from stress/ post trauma to a state of resiliency and beyond resiliency, in a peaceful, gentle way through her counseling and consultations. She facilitates retreats to allow her clients the time, luxury and sacred space to create the most effective therapeutic and restorative processes.

She uses a gentle therapy approach to allow her clients’ natural healing instincts to be restored and renewed. Fine tuning their internal guidance then leads them to their exquisite lives.
She is the author of “One More Day,” her memoir of overcoming suicidal ideations and renewing love, joy and passion in her life.
