Dr. Riddle is a person that truly understands neutrality and doesn’t force her opinions on people. She allows a person to share their viewpoints with no bias or judgment detected. If more people took this approach, I think there would be no need for angry outbursts.

Dr. Riddle by far is one of the best therapists I've encountered. Not only does she listen to you, but she also listens to understand and is very wise and extremely kind. You can feel her genuineness and care for you. I really appreciate her and feel safe in sharing. Thank you and I look forward to continuing.

Dr. Riddle is the BEST therapist! I've been working with her for a year and she's been so great at making me feel heard and is so affirming even while challenging my views. She paces the session wonderfully and gives me so many resources like worksheets, affirmations, and strategies to help better my life. She's incredibly compassionate, kind, funny, and patient. I have always felt comfortable opening up to her, and that is because she does a great job in making it feel like a safe and comfortable space. I can tell she really cares about her clients because she always remembers the little details and messages throughout the week to help me keep stay optimistic and mindful. Part of me will really miss Dr. Riddle as my therapy is over, but I am much healthier than I once was because of her.

Dr. Riddle has a way of making you feel like your talking to a lone time friend. She allows to you talk about what’s going on and you know she’s listening because she addresses every issue. She has given me tools to deal with situations when they come up and how to identify what I’m feeling and why. She has never made me depend on her, but has equipment with the tools to handle this new season in my life.
I feel I have been blessed by her presence and compassionate heart.

Dr. Riddle is a wonderful counselor! She is empathetic, supportive, and has a great memory. I love how she gives “homework” after our sessions because it gives me a chance to continue breaking down situations in creative ways in the period of time between sessions. Sending a big hug for all that she’s done!

I was completely pleased and at ease once we had our first video call. Dr Riddle is very warm, understanding and helpful. After our first session I was made a believer. I appreciate how she listens and responds. She gave me a worksheet to help with my problems and that was a big deal to me. I love how she makes sure I am comfortable in the beginning of the call. Im excited for the growth and can already see ways I have grown in our few sessions we've had so far

Written by K.A. on Aug 19, 2020 after therapy with Annette for 1 month

Dr. Riddle is very intuitive and insightful. When presented with complicated issues she has the ability to break it down and discuss in smaller components. Always providing the client with alternative perspectives and solutions to consider. I enjoy my discussions with her and feel i am getting "healthier mentally".

Work with me!
