Tonia Lowe, MS LPCC NCC


Professional Biography



I hold a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University (Columbia, MD) and a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a minor in Religious Studies from Regis University (Denver, CO). I am an animal lover, have completed training in animal-assisted therapy (AAT) and am working toward certification as an animal-assisted therapist. I work with adult individuals, couples and families from all walks of life with issues such as life transitions, current crisis situations, past hurts, effective communication and much more. I believe in the importance of validating every individual’s feelings and perspectives with regard to whatever situation that individual may be facing at any given time and am committed to an empathetic, motivating and empowering approach to counseling.

I am especially passionate about helping emergency first responders and their families. I currently serve with the Broomfield Police Department and North Metro Fire and Rescue as a volunteer victim advocate, a position I have been honored to hold for over 7 years. My studies have included specific emphasis in the area of crisis and trauma counseling; I have also completed and regularly attend a variety of professional development and continuing education courses related to military, veteran, and emergency first responder cultural competence. Members of these populations are extremely resilient by nature. Still, dealing with the worst parts of our world every day can and often does take a heavy toll on them. Emotions such as fear, grief, despair, anger, hopelessness and defeat are common in the face of a traumatic event—even for those who are trained and expected to handle such events on a daily basis. This is why I am committed to helping these individuals, their spouses/significant others and families overcome the debilitating effect of such emotions and develop the ability to stand up and move forward when the hurt becomes unbearable.
