We Accept Insurance!
Edwige Tonye

I want my patients to know that we all need to stop the stigma, mental health is REAL, and their experience matters. I offer a holistic approach that takes into account all facets of life.

Edwige Tonye, PMHNP-BC is a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner licensed in the state of Texas.


It was her personal experience in life with a beloved family member who suffered from schizophrenia, and the lack of communication within her culture about mental illness, that inspired her to specialize in caring for people and treating their mental health. While her background is in medicine, she considers her style of treatment holistic, and promises to offer care that embraces all aspects of her patient's lives.


Edwige is passionate about reducing stigma, increasing access, and providing quality, compassionate and comprehensive mental health services. Currently, she sees patients via telehealth. She believes the use of psychotherapy, medication, and the patient’s active participation in the care, is key for the treatment of mental health disorders.


Edwige accepts most insurance plans, and treats many mental health conditions including anxiety and bipolar disorder. For patients who struggle to find success through traditional treatment methods, Heading also offers specialized treatments such as Intramuscular Ketamine, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, and Spravato in-clinic.
