She's extremely kind and introduces me to new concepts in a very simplistic manner that's easy for someone who's unfamiliar with therapy while giving me strategies on how to deal with it
She has helped my daughter so much! She makes her feel comfortable and understood. I couldn’t ask for someone better!
After having a bad experience with a prior counselor, we found Antoinette and she has been the best. She absolutely takes the time to listen before offering any advise at all. Me and my partner enjoy talking to her. My partner loves that she open up and talk to Antoinette.
I very highly recommend Antoinette, andnI would say you wouldn't be disappointed
Antoinette Woods has been a great help in the small time we have talked. I look forward to talking to our conversations.
Antoinette is very professional and nonjudgmental. She listened to my concerns and appropriately guided me. I felt that I was heard and understood. She gave me ample time to express myself and I felt confident in her abilities to help me. She also has a lot of availability which allowed me to book appointments as I needed them! I would suggest working with her!
I've had two sessions with Antionette and it's been very helpful so far. I look forward to more.
