For Dr. Tonya Armstrong, a Durham native, The Armstrong Center for Hope has been a dream a long time in the making. By age 12, she knew that she wanted to pursue child psychology and music, and proceeded to double major in both at Yale University. As a person of deep faith, she also knew that spirituality is a vital component in the lives of many. Thus, after she completed her doctorate in child clinical psychology at UNC-Chapel Hill, she pursued a Master of Theological Studies degree at Duke Divinity School.
In addition to embracing her role as Minister of Congregational Care and Counseling (beginning April, 2000) at Union Baptist Church in Durham, Tonya taught courses in pastoral care at Duke Divinity School, including introductory and capstone courses for the Duke/UNC M.Div./M.S.W. dual-degree program.
Clinically, Tonya works primarily with children, adolescents, couples, and families on issues of depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, grief and loss, and relationship challenges. As much as she enjoys providing, managing, and supervising clinical services at the ACFH, Tonya also immensely enjoys speaking on a host of topics at local, regional, and national events. Since the release of her debut gospel album, “Choose Hope” in 2009, Tonya has renewed her enthusiasm for vocal music and has performed in over 10 states from coast to coast. (The album, including samples of each song, may be purchased at iTunes.com.)
