Licensed Certified Social Worker - Clinical
Hi, my name is Tonya Logan and I am an Licensed Certified Social Worker - Clinical. I have over 30 years of professional clinical experience working with those managing conflict and trauma. A native Washingtonian, I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Virginia and my master’s degree in social work from the University of Maryland at Baltimore. I spent the bulk of my career, in D.C. and Maryland, working with biological and foster parents by securing permanency via reunification, adoption, or independent living. I was the clinical director of a program which provided in-home services to families at-risk of abuse and/or neglect to strengthen and stabilize them so they would be diverted from the child welfare system. I also was a contractor with an organization in which I facilitated 10-week grief groups for those impacted by homicide following my certification as a grief recovery specialist. I transitioned to being the supervisory social worker in a non-public school for students diagnosed with learning differences, emotional challenges, ADHD, and/or autism.
I am the Founder and CEO of Kayla’s Village, begun in July 2007, which strives to be the premier provider of innovative seminars and supportive resources for individuals, families, professionals, and communities. Additionally, I am a clinician providing counseling to individuals and couples and on the Advisory Board of the Center for Infant and Child Loss. I am an active church member of Trinity AME Zion Church and published author, “Mommie’s Bright Sunshine,” speaking to the reality that we can move beyond our trials, tragedies, and trauma without allowing it to define our future. I am the parent of two children, one by adoption and one by birth, and have hosted two exchange students. Obviously, I try to tailor my life to help others in need.
