I believe that each one of us has the answers to our problems inside of us. However, sometimes we need someone on our journey to help us unlock those answers by asking the right questions---things you may not have considered, presenting proven strategies, and psychoeducation. Although you will make strides with the energy and effort you give, the number one predictor that one will improve is the quality of the therapeutic relationship. I hope to provide a place of warmth, compassion, and acceptance in which you feel empowered and free to approach any concerns. I am here to help you along on your journey.
I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with an Educational Specialist degree in Mental Health Counseling. I also earned a Master's of Art from Roosevelt University. Over the last 7 years, the bulk of my experience has been working with children and adolescents along with their families. The theoretical framework that I usually draw from is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. I also apply Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing Techniques as needed. I address trauma, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, interpersonal skills/social skills, ADHD, self-esteem, anger, problem-solving, and decision-making. I also have experience with parent management training and substance abuse. In conjunction with therapy, I believe that exercise, proper nutrition, and good sleep hygiene are an integral part of overcoming mental health concerns.
Change, even positive change can be challenging and uncomfortable. I hope to provide the necessary support as a champion of change.

Chinyere does a great job providing information and is patient with difficult patients.
Just amazing and helped me so much through navigating through life's challenges with a fresh perspective. Thank you Chinyere for all that you do!
Chin is great. She never gives up on me. Even when I kind of give up on myself
Working with Chinyere has been a really positive experience. I have reached levels of healing I haven't reached with prior therapists. I would definitely recommend her!
Chinyere responds to me quickly, and provides me with tools and home work.
I really like the time I have sent with Ms tunsill so far. She is literally the best
I worked w Chinyere for about two years or so. I was extremely resistant for a long time but in the last year some of the messages and tools for a better life really sunk in. While I am far from all the way back in the swing I have a path forward and things are starting to feel more normal and more like real me and happier me from before an onslaught of crappy life events. Am very thankful for Chinyere's help.
I have had a few sessions with Chinyere, I appreciate her dedication to her clients. I feel like I have come leaps and bounds in the short time I have been speaking with her. She is easy to talk to, friendly and very resourceful! Would happily recommend her to anyone.
shes so calm and understanding. allowing you space and time to build trust with her. she understands and respects your boundaries, very professional but at the same time able to understand and address personal issue i shared without giving away too much advices but more so offers reliable sources from credible authors / references to deliver her advices, messages. Thanks Chin!
Chinyere (Chin as she was introduced to me) is the best therapist I have found in my adult life. I have been seeing her for almost a year and it feels like I’m having a weekly chat with a friend about things and she has the greatest methods to guide myself through the process. I am someone with a complex traumatic childhood and have a lot of present life unavoidable daily stressors. Chin has helped me develop skills I wasn’t privileged with developing as a child as an adult functioning in real time life. She has been extremely patient with me finding the words and strength to vocalize a lot of my past and I never knew just saying it out loud to someone can help. Having her as my therapist has helped me feel heard. My family is mixed and diverse and packed full of generational trauma and abuse. She has helped me to navigate and understand the effects of their unhealed pasts and the importance of working on myself. I am very grateful for finding her last year. Thank you for hiring the best ❤️
she’s really nice and listens to people and actually tries to understand them and isn’t afraid to go deep into their feelings
Chin is helpful and understanding, she always asks clarifying questions and offers practical advice. I feel heard and supporting working with her, and optimistic that my goals are achievable. She also recommends good resources with which to learn on my own, in between sessions.
Before being matched with Chinyere, I felt that therapy wasn't for me. Chinyere changed that. She is proactive- going out of her way to deliver truly helpful information and tips. She is relatable- always sharing content that is easy to understand and apply. She is flexible and accommodating. I have learned so much from Chinyere, and I'm grateful for the positive impact she has had.
What I like most about Chinyere is that she is open, reliable, humble, engaged, listens, and sincerely wants to be helpful.
Working with Ms. T was absolutely amazing, I was able to get farther in my healing in just a few weeks than I was in months with another therapist. The only reason I left was because I moved out of state! I stayed with her for almost 6 months and was able to learn a lot about myself. She's very no nonsense without being mean about it, just gives you the gentle truth without frills. Highly recommend!
In the beginning, I wasn't talkative. What I like about Ms. Tunsill is that she didn't push anything. She picked up on the little things I said, and got me to open up. I highly would refer Ms. Tunsil. She has been a great help!
Chinyere is an amazing therapist. This is my first time speaking with a therapist and she’s made the process so easy. I look forward to our sessions because she’s so insightful. I feel as though she cares about my feelings and helps me to sort them. She’s great!
Amazing counselor, she is helping me chart my path forward
Chinyere is very kind and easy to talk to. She is compassionate. And she clearly understands the challenges and provides very good resources and direction to help get to the bottom of the problem. She gives 100% of herself.
Chinyere, is AMAZING!
Great counselor who will give you practical tools to cope in your daily life!
I have been through therapist to therapist since age 8, never until now have i found one that has helped me. She helps me find better ways to communicate and control my anger. I really miss her, however we couldn’t afford it.
Chin has shared with me tools I find very effective in responding and mitigating my depression. So grateful for her expert guidance!
She is very knowledgeable for any subject i bring up and provides awesome tools for you to work on. Would definitely recommend to anybody that needs help :)
My sessions with Chinyere feel like I'm talking to a friend, and she provides me with great tools, offers new ways of thinking, and holds me accountable for my actions and decisions. She guides our conversations effortlessly to ensure I am getting the most out of my session, and our conversations are always insightful and interesting to me. Not only do I feel seen and heard working with Chin, but I feel like I learn a lot from her as well and always leave with a smile on my face, even if it's been an emotional session.
Great listener and very understanding in our situation.
She is so down to earth and real. She really brings out the best in me.

Chin never fails to ground me and uplift me after a session. I'm a lot healthier because of her.
Chinyere has been such a great guide and a person that is ready to listen to anything that you have to say. She has offered great advice and helpful techniques to cope with different things such as low-self esteem and confidence. I would highly recommend Chinyere as she has helped me realize my worth and work through negative thoughts that I no longer entertain!
We have been working together for a few months. I see and feel the improvement in some of my concerns that I am getting better and my peace is being restored. I appreciate Chinyere actively listening, re directing me when I lose focus and gives me the requested homework to reinforce our session. She is wonderful asset and I would recommend her to others who are seeking counseling!
I would like to thank Dr. Tunsill from the bottom of my heart for her services because she has helped me improve my mental health. She was able not only relate to my problems, but also guide me through the obstacles with exercises and research. There was not a time where I felt that I was not being heard, she listened. I am forever grateful and will definitely be back!
Chinyere has been great with helping me through some issues in my life. She tells it like it is and asks the hard questions to really get to the root of issues. I’ve had two session with her so far and I already feel like I can breathe again. I still have a long journey ahead of me but I’m glad I took this step. Thank you Chinyere!
I felt more help from Chinyere in one session than I had in weeks and months with other therapists. She's been very attentive and gives me multiple things to do, try, and focus on to help me start to heal.
Chin has been a life saver. Right away she was giving me applicable advice and helping me see things in a new way. I’m excited to continue learning from her. She has been a great help.
Chinyere will tell you what she sees, and it's often the thing you need to hear but haven't admitted to yourself. She shares awesome resources.
