Tyler N. Tolson: Counselor

An American located in central Prague with specialization and experience in counseling women, youth, and LGBTQIA+ for five years, Tyler Tolson has volunteered and worked toward helping others cope, heal, and grow with the use of psycho-social intervention (such as CBT, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), mindfulness, trauma-focused methods, and a variety of other techniques. Her approach is existentialist-leaning, with a relaxed and friendly style, with expertise in:

  • major life transitions 

  • personality or behavioral disorders 

  • gender/sexuality problems

  • stess/anxiety

  • depression

  • grief

  • addiction

  • trauma 

Since moving to Prague, she has focused on clients between 7-16 years old and adult couples, survivors of sexual violence, sexuality/gender challenges, grief, mood and anxiety disorders. She is currently accepting new clients with any background.

She has a Bachelors in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality studies with a focus on Psychology, African American Studies, and Linguistics. Her skill set and practice is in accordance with American social worker standards and her practice is held to contemporary American psychotherapy standards. She is certified in Mental Health Counseling with the Academy of Modern Applied Psychology, and has worked with ages 6 and up for over 5 years via independent counseling services, suicide prevention hotlines (such as Seven Cups of Tea and The Trevor Project), abortion access and support with Georgia Reproductive Access Network (The Magnolia Fund), and a homeless center for LGBTQIA youth (LostnFound Youth) in Atlanta, GA. She founded and ran her own nutrition-centered hunger-relief organization for LGBTQIA youth, RADDISH, until her relocation to Prague.

She believes in proactive therapy with compassion, using balance to come toward one’s own position organically with the given tools to navigate inner progress. Her aim is to help re-establish and empower one’s agency with control, as to find and meet the goals and visions we imagine for ourselves. Much of their work has benefitted from their educational background in philosophy, linguistics, race, sexuality, and gender studies, as well as personal experience of growing up in a multiracial, lower-middle class environment with exposure to various complex issues.

 

What clients can expect is that every interaction will be flexible to their needs, and that sensitivity and respect is prioritized above all in their life’s journey.
