Adrienne Norwood

(LPHA, LISW-CPS, LCSWS)

About Me

I would like to thank you for reading my profile! I honor your courage to reach out and seek help. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and therapist with over 25 years of experience. I am licensed in several different States to practice and I practice from a Holistic Perspective. It is my belief that you must treat the "whole" person. I incorporate mind, body and spirit into my approach when it comes to assisting others on their journey of healing. It is a journey not a destination. We are always learning, growing, and healing if we choose to do so. Allow me to assist you on your journey of healing and awakening to your Universal Divine Truth. I will assist you by helping you learn to tap into the power within that has always existed! You will discover your true-self and be able to begin creating the life of your dreams. I am both a Spiritual Empowerment (Life) Coach and a Licensed Therapist and can meet either need. Allow me to help you discover the solutions for your life one session at a time!

I work with individuals, groups, couples, and/or families who have experienced everything from child abuse, domestic violence, low self-esteem, bereavement, anxiety, parenting issues, and depression just to mention a few. When providing therapy I utilize a holistic wellness approach and use a variety of modalities when dealing with my clients. I do not see you as "your story, your past, your perceived failures." You are so much more than you realize! Through utilizing several different therapy techniques and years of experience, we will begin to explore underlying causes of what has you out of "alignment" and assist you on your path to healing and wellness!
I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Again, It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

She really listens and cares. She talks to you like a friend and not a distant therapist. Her approach has helped me a lot because it makes me feel like I am not judged for being me.

I am so in love with my counselor. We hit it off immediately. My favorite part about her is she contributes to the conversation, not just having a one sided conversation. She’s real, down to earth, and has seen a lot herself. She’s extremely experienced and it shows. I have recommended her to everyone I know! She is the best. ❤️

Adrienne has given me insights into situations that I wouldn't have seen on my own and has helped me to move forward in places I've been feeling stuck in. She is warm, friendly, and communicative, and I always feel happier having spoken with her.

Adrienne has transformed my life in the short duration of time we’ve been working together. She is incredible, and I feel supported and cared for every step of the way in this journey. I feel like I can share anything with her without judgment, and that we’re both working towards the same goals. I feel truly so grateful to have been matched with Adrienne as she’s already had a profound impact on my life!

Adrienne and I have only been working together for a short time, but I already feel that I am learning so much from the process that she provides and guides. She has a healing energy, that could be felt immediately. Strongly recommend!

Very personable and great with picking up where we last left off in conversation. She reads my shared journal posts which helps provide me feedback as it pertains to my growth and development. She is super kind and I love that she understands my entire holistic approach to life as she herself is a holistic practitioner as well.

Ms. Norwood was an incredibly empathetic and compassionate counselor and she helped me a great deal. She is very spiritual, wise, and understands a great deal about the human mind and is very good at guiding her clients to understanding themselves better. I’m very happy I got to work with her!

Written by A.L. on Nov 09, 2020 after counseling with Adrienne for 2 months

Ms. Norwood is very eclectic in her way of counseling. She takes into account aspects that would otherwise be overlooked with regular psychotherapists. It is a very holistic approach; one that is very rare to come by. She takes into account the metaphysical aspects of life like astrology and likes thereof.

If one is seeking someone too help them with things spiritual, Adrienne is your counselor.

Written by J.E. on Oct 27, 2020 after counseling with Adrienne for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and parenting issues

I don't have enough words to even describe how amazing Adrienne is. She instantly makes you feel comfortable and puts you at ease. Adrienne is knowledgable, so funny, listens and is relatable in her own experiences. In a short amount of time, I feel I made quite a bit of progress in my healing. I'm looking forward to being back on her client list and reconnecting with her to continue my healing. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Adrienne is going beyond my expectations. She can analyse situations in many ways, challenge you and deliver them in the mist loving way. I am blessed to have her now in my life.

Written by A.B. on Oct 13, 2020 after counseling with Adrienne for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and grief

Adrienne Norwood is an incredible counselor and has been such a source of comfort and guidance to me throughout our counseling relationship. She manages to bring compassion, kindness, and humor into each of our sessions, no matter how heavy the topic. It means so much to me to be able to bring my whole self to our sessions and know that no matter what I need to talk through or ask for advice about, she never judges, only finds ways to help and support. Would highly recommend Ms. Norwood to anyone who needs help!

Written by A.S. on Oct 11, 2020 after counseling with Adrienne for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Within the first few weeks, she was able to talk through so much and start dismantling a lot of immediate responses I had. She understood what I was going through and supported me through my decisions and gave some insight into my troubles. She really is a wonderful person and really tries to help talk you through what’s going on.

Adrienne is great! She tries to relate to my situation, listens to my needs and what I have to say and is doing her best to help with all the difficulties I am facing. I appreciate her and Better Help so much for making this tool available and once again providing hope that things CAN get better!

Ms. Adrienne is by far the most AMAZING therapist I’ve EVER had... and I have had quite a few. She truly takes the time to get to know you, listens attentively, never judgmental and the KINDEST SOUL! I would recommend her a million times over!

I’ve only had a few sessions with Adrienne but she’s made me feel so much better. I’ve never felt so comfortable or able to share and open up so easily to someone before. Her kindness and understanding radiates through her voice, smile and energy.

Ms. Andrinne is the BEST! I'm very grateful to have her as my therapist! I have a therapist that I actually can trust without having to second guess!

Adrienne is a delightful counselor who really makes you feel heard and valued. Her advice is sound and practical. I was always apprehensive to start therapy, but now I look forward to it every week.

Adrienne has been so far my most exciting therapist. I usually prefer male therapist but she clearly has made me realize over been missing out. I do enjoy that she brings a spiritual dynamic to the equation.

Written by A.H. on Aug 17, 2020 after counseling with Adrienne for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Adrienne has been such a huge part of my growth in the past 3 months. I can see the difference, my family sees I’m working on myself with return, I feel like an improved person. I’m so thankful for her and her guidance, knowledge, and intervention. I can honestly say that the new management skills I have gained are a result of her coaching. I truly enjoy each and every session with her. I always finish my sessions feeling refreshed and understood. So thankful for her!

Adrienne has been a great Counselor and I really enjoy & appreciate the counseling !!!

Written by E.R. on Jul 29, 2020 after counseling with Adrienne for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Ms. Adrienne has given me so much love, kindness, and respect since we began speaking with each other. She cares deeply, listens intently, and approaches her work holistically. I look forward to every session we have together and use her words and guidance in my daily life. I could not recommend Ms. Adrienne more highly!

Written by E.M. on Jul 25, 2020 after counseling with Adrienne for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I’ve had several therapists before over the years, but I never felt like they connected with me the way Adrienne does. It never feels too clinical or like I’m being analyzed by her, but instead our meetings feel more conversational and comfortable. She not only actively listens, but she shares her own experiences, which helps to make the conversations more two-sided. I highly recommend!

Written by J.A. on Jul 23, 2020 after counseling with Adrienne for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion fatigue

Only 2 sessions and she’s amazing! Just what I needed.

Ms. Norwood is amazing! I needed counseling for years now however I’ve been avoiding it due to fears of the unknown. Ms. Norwood made me feel so comfortable to where me fears were all gone and I was now beginning to look forward to our sessions. I didn’t feel like I was just another patient of hers. She made me feel as though I was her only client. She was always available. Her response time was within minutes. She’s awesome at what she does! This isn’t just a job to her you can clearly tell this is her Passion!

Adrienne has been such a blessing in my life during such a difficult time. I was nervous when joining Better Help but she eased my nerves within our first session! She is able to figure out what I need and work with me on things that come up regularly. She is always available when I need and hears me out even when I'm not sure what to say. Thanks Adrienne!

Written by D.A. on Jun 11, 2020 after counseling with Adrienne for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and anger management

Ms. Norwood has been great. She made me understand the framework of how life work and that “being in control” isn’t my job. Her showing me this is destroying my anxiety. Thank God for her and the BetterHelp platform for African American Men!
