My name is Ms. Woods and I have over 20 years of experience working in the counseling field. I have worked with children, adolescents and adults. I have worked with many diverse populations and different scopes of practice. I have worked in inpatient facilities as well as corrections. My largest experience with counseling has been working for community mental health. I believe in utilizing a non-judgmental optimistic approach. I have learned over the years as a counselor that the most important aspect of counseling is active listening. I am very compassionate and empathetic. I have experience in working with clients that suffer from; OCD, ODD,ADHD, depression, anxiety, ptsd, grief, low self-esteem and many other identified needs. I also have a passion for working with couples. I think that two people making a decision to participate in therapy is very admirable. That alone says that the communication aspect is unfolding.
I can ensure that I will be ready to provide the most effective help that would be in the best interest of my client. I specialize in Cognitive behavioral therapy and client centered therapy. I believe in being a guide to assist consumers in developing skills that will assist them with their day to day functioning. I believe that every cloud has a silver lining and I am here to bridge the gap between your needs and effective implementing new skills that are beneficial to your treatment. I am here to provide hope for every need. Thanks for making the choice to participate in counseling. I look forward to working with you!

Patient listener, wonderful learning excersises and calm natured demeanor. Provided the sounding board to and solutions.
Antoinnette was extremely helpful in her counseling techniques. She is a great listener and provided us with the tools we needed to remind us of our shared values and give us the tuneup that we needed. I would definitely recommend her for anyone who is looking for a relationship counseling.
Ms. Woods is wonderful. She is unbiased, a good listener, and gives thoughtful, sound advice. She is patient and is always able to leave us in a safe place at the end of session. We are very happy to be learning from her and her techniques have already improved our marriage.
Very professional and well spoken. Look forward to many sessions with Antoinette:)
Antoinette is very professional and helpful!
She’s very calm and kind.
