Dr. Tina Paone, LPC, RPT-S


“When life changes to be harder, change yourself to be stronger” ~Unknown

Clients I See
I see children, adolescents, adults, and co-parenting (Ages 3+)

Topics I Address
There are a number of counseling topics I work with however, I particularly enjoy working with the topics of parenting issues, race & racism issues, and transracial adoptions. I am a firm believer that parents must be involved in the change process with their child/ren therefore; parent consultation plays a key factor to ensuring a successful therapeutic experience. Together, we will work to establish the goals you wish to achieve for you/your child in therapy.

My Thoughts on the Therapeutic Process
I believe in meeting my clients where they are when they walk through the door.  Taking the step to meet with a counselor can be difficult, so I will be here to listen and understand your individual situation and goals.  I like to use a strengths-based approach.  I will work closely with you to help you recognize your existing strengths and help you build upon those strengths to meet your goals in counseling.

My Professional Experience
My experience in the field of counseling has allowed me the opportunity to work with a multitude of individuals and families at the elementary, middle, high school, and university levels, as well as private agency settings.  This diversity of experiences allows me to see the unique situations each person brings to therapy.  My training as a play therapist allows me to focus on the individual needs of my clients and be creative when traditional talk therapy is not the best route.  As a current counselor educator, I continue to stay abreast of cutting edge research and practice in the field.
