Merland "Tony" Baker is an exceptional therapist. His attention to my PTD symptoms which includes depression, anxiety and insomnia due to my Military career was spot on and to the point. Through his step-by-step process he and I are able to focus on my issues directly. His expertise and level of input has assisted me in resolving my condition. He does this by allowing me to openly discuss those issues while maintaining my daily focus on my road of recovery. Thanks Tony, for our therapy sessions. I'm sure you will positively influence others in need of support. I highly recommend you to my Veteran's family. ET.

Mr. Merland is an exceptional person and therapist. He listens, hears and genuinely cares for others. He has worked with my family for over 5 years now. He has been a Godsend for my sons and I. We were in the middle of a challenging situation and Mr. Merland walked right into our situation. He is driven by his Christian values and principles. He gives sound advice and guidance. My family and I feel safe to share our struggles with him. We trust Mr. Merland. He is trustworthy understanding, compassionate, dependable and professional. He has done more than what we expected; he has given us hope. We are ever grateful. He is a rare gift. I highly recommend Mr. Merland to individuals and families alike who are seeking genuine, attentive and compassionate counseling.

Mr. Merland Tony Baker is the best male therapist of the Greater Jacksonville area. The fact he is a black male is an extra added benefit for black men facing Mental health challenges in our area. The struggles and challenges of black men are well documented and are often overlooked. Which causes us to be silent about depression, anxiety, addiction, traumas, and fears. No more is this an issue with such a renown therapist as Mr. Baker. He listens empathetically then offers solutions that are ideal and tailored for the client to get to and maintain mental health. He assisted me with a family member that needed assistance readjusting to society after being incarcerated for nine years. What an assist Mr. Baker! I recommend Merland Tony Baker for all of your Mental Health needs.

Mental Health Care Like Everyday Care

As a therapist and agency we take great pride and responsibility in helping every person that seeks assistance to become better and feel better. From teen boys being raised in single-mothered homes, to women concerned about their men to couples experiencing relational problems or to the man who has finally found the courage to reach out for help, we are here.

In spite of the website name we provide services to all ethnic groups. Incidentally, the name came from me actually being a black male therapist, that is all. It is not intended to exclude any races from gaining therapeutic services or access to care.

In conclusion, I do not believe in accidents. You have been led to this page for a purpose. Let us work together to clarify that purpose. Contact me today!
