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
