Progress Not Perfection

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

About TonyaRae Bouvier

I graduated the Grace Abbot School of Social Work (University of Nebraska Omaha) in 2012 with an MSW. Since graduating I have worked in the local community in a variety of capacities to include: Crossroads of Western Iowa, VA PTSD Clinic and KVC Behavioral Health. Most recently I began practicing at Cross Therapy and am enjoying working in private practice.

What do I bring to the field? What makes me unique? I am a mother or 4 and have one granddaughter. I have real life experience with aging adults looking for their purpose. I am a Veteran who has had to find, acknowledge and accept how my war time experiences have changed me. I use evidence-based practices combined with firsthand experiences to help me heal your mind, heart and soul.

Who We Help

Children

Have people told you your child is aggressive or out of control? Has he or she been suspended or expelled from daycare or school because of their behaviors? Are you asking yourself is he/or she the parent or am I? Do you feel like you just aren’t connected with your child or children? If you or your child are experiencing any of these symptoms, please call and set up an appointment to discuss how Parent Child Interaction Therapy can assist your family. 

Veterans

Have you been deployed and are now having difficulty recognizing yourself or connecting with your family or friends? Did you stay stateside, but are experiencing unwanted feelings related to not being deployed? Are your experiences in the military taking over your life? Call me and we can work together to improve your ability to connect with others, accept who you are and/or move through the trauma, so you are able to get back in the driver’s seat. When working with Veterans for trauma, I use Cognitive Processing Therapy. If a person’s goal is to improve their relationship with others, I use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

Elder Adults

Have you recently retired or been asked to resign, and you think its because of your age? Are your children grown and not sure what your purpose is anymore? Have you experienced a recent loss and not sure how to feel whole? I would like to help. Your heart is still beating and you deserve to feel good about who you are and where you are in life. I offer group and individual therapy and I look forward to hearing from you so we can start your journey to feeling content.

Families

Are you looking at this picture and thinking I can’t get my kids to stop fighting, or my spouse hasn’t been this close to me in years? I work with families to help them to grow closer, be more content, and live in a peaceful environment. Picture perfect families do not exist! Content families, strong family bonds, and harmony in the home are achievable. When working with families I provide Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
