Peer Support Specialist
Having been deeply affected personally and professionally by the loss of life addiction brings, Tonya has traveled to South East Asia to explore the way these cultures deal with the passing of loved ones. As a person who has recovered from addiction herself, Tonya has used her passion for helping others to find a new way of living through her sponsorship, book studies and the 12-Steps. She is a Certified Psychiatric Technician, a Peer Support Specialist and a Certified Interventionist.
Having worked throughout the US, mainly in Hollywood and Los Angeles, Tonya has spent long periods of time, one on one with addicts and alcoholics, living in their homes and embarking with them on their new journey. Having moved to Puerto Vallarta, she and her husband found a life that allows them to pursue new aspects of spirituality, connection and personal growth.
