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!

Adrienne is amazing! I'm so grateful to have been matched with someone that specialized in LGBTQ+ issues. She always made me feel safe and accepted and that I could come talk to her about anything. With her help, I made more progress with my issues in a few months, than I had for a whole year with another therapist. She listens to me and provides resources for me to look into and watch to improve myself. It's been very helpful. I would definitely recommend Adrienne for anyone seeking therapy. She's a godsend.
Adrienne is absolutely great! She’s caring and kind. She really takes time to discuss issues.
She's very easy to talk to!
She is wonderful.
Working with Adrienne Norwood has helped me grow tremendously. For the first time in my life I have a healthy relationship with myself. In turned this has improved my relationship with my loved ones. I am forever thankful for the many lessons.
Adrienne takes time to be present and shares delicious advice and homework
After a couple of months away, I came back to Better Help specifically to work with Adrienne as she was beyond incredible when I worked with her in 2020. She is such a phenomenal therapist, and her wisdom and method is exactly what I’m looking for. I feel like through my work with her, my growth and healing has been accelerated!
Amazing as always and ready to help me. Genuinely shows her compassion for my problems and my wellbeing.
I am so grateful to Adrienne for her support, wisdom and encouragement. She is a great listener and knows well when to say something that can help me on my healing journey. I will always remember that I had her as my counsellior during the most difficult time in my life and that her smile, kind words and professionalism have helped me to understand that I will be able become the man that God wants me to be. Infinitely and eternally grateful to you Adrianne!
She is a wonderful lady to work with. Very gentle and a great listener. I learned from our sessions that healing is not linear, but a process. I learned to value myself despite my shortcomings and to not dwell on them. I would recommend her! Working with Adrienne helped uncover a lot of trauma and pain that I can face with grace and understanding. TY again!
Wonderful to work with and learn from. Her wisdom and grace were comforting and helpful in the time she and I worked together. I felt like an active participant in my growth. She heard my concerns and provided support each and every time I needed her.
Adrienne has been a great counselor. I like that she listens to you and gives respectable feedback and related resources for your needs.
I love my counselor. I feel like a different, better person after talking with her and implementing her advices. I’ve recommended BH to many people and no longer feel ashamed or embarrassed to say that I have a regular counselor.
What can I say about Adrienne, well she’s been the biggest help ever and I wouldn’t be where I am today without her service. She’s such a caring person who listens very well and gives great advice. I can’t recommend her enough! Thank you so much Adrienne!
Adrienne was exactly the person I needed at a critical time of crisis in my life. She is the epitome of wisdom when things seem so unclear. Additionally, she exudes LOVE and PEACE, her approach to life and her dedication to her work were essential to my healing journey.
Adrienne is an amazing, insightful, and kind therapist. She validates my feelings and also shares useful and practical methods that really help me with my primary concerns. She's been a huge help for me.
She is amazing, she really is very supportive and understands my concerns, and helped me to be better, she is open, funny but also asks me the questions that make me think and reflect. I am very grateful to have her help.
Adrienne is the best for me and probably for many other people
Great listener very helpful
An amazing support system! She gets me!
She is great and very relatable
Going into therapy for the first time was nervewracking, but having Adrienne as my guide has been absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend her!
Adrienne is very intuitive and made me feel comfortable and heard right from the beginning
Ms Adrienne is the BEST COUNSELOR I'VE EVER HAD!
Awesome job, thank you
She is wonderful and personable and will gladly keep this service to continue my counceling with her
She is amazing and has such a calming voice
She has been such a major part of transforming the trauma and life events that I have been through this past year. I wouldn’t have been able to survive without her help and advice and kind words.
Adrienne has been nothing but help in my life. And as inconsistent I have been she has done her best to really help me move forward in a more positive direction
She is a saint who listens and I love her a lot.
My therapist has been such blessing, i feel understood when i talk to her and shes allowed me to grow in so many ways in a short period of time
I couldn’t have asked for a better counselor!
She’s very supportive and wonderful listener. Highly recommend!
She is amazing and keeps me on track I can't wait to continue my journey with her
She has and continues to give excellent advice and be an advocate for 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.
I think shes great!. I'm comfortable with her and I feel confident that I was matched with the right counselor.
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.
I have full trust in the competence of Adrienne. She is amazing and since I have her as my counselor, things are going very well for me.
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!
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.
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 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!
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!
She has been such a huge help in showing me different ways to attack my problems
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!
Adrianne made me feel at home in our first session, she has a lovely personality and is great to talk with. I am looking forward to working with her further.
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.
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 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 !!!
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!
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!
Only 2 sessions and she’s amazing! Just what I needed.
Adrienne is wonderful and very reliable. I enjoy our conversations.
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!
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!
