About Tonya Kinnaman

I am a National Certified Counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor in Arizona. I did my undergraduate studies at Grand Canyon University and received my Master’s Degree in Community Counseling from Northern Arizona University in 2007. After completing my counseling internship at Empact-Suicide Prevention Center, I stayed on as a Family Therapist working primarily with children and families. I also worked for Aurora Behavioral Health as a crisis counselor in the Scottsdale Healthcare Emergency Departments of Osborn Hospital, Shea Hospital and Thompson Peak Hospital. From May 2010 to January 2014, I was an independent contractor with Breathe Again Counseling, LLC until I decided to open my own private practice, Arizona Blue Sky Counseling, LLC.

I look forward to working with clients to achieve their goals in the most productive manner possible. I believe that my clients possess the drive and tenacity within themselves to change perspectives and add skills to overcome personal issues which are barriers to success and happiness in their lives. Through an honest and caring relationship, we can work together to focus on solutions and bring about change in a way that you are comfortable with and can embrace.
