My experience with Dr. Riddle has been wonderful. Not only is she knowledgeable in her counseling expertise but she is welcoming , nonjudgmental and very relatable. The work we have done in our sessions as well as the tools and skills she has shared with me to use in my everyday life have been invaluable .
Grateful !

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.

With the help of Dr. Riddle, I was able to overcome challenges with anxiety, self-esteem, and the effects of a traumatic event. Dr. Riddle is patient, understanding, kind, encouraging, and everything you want in a therapist. I cannot recommend her enough!

Dr. Riddle has great understanding and in the short time we’ve spoke I feel like she knows what I’m talking about and offers great advice. Happy with my sessions so far!

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!

She listens, is very clear and intelligent and understands my goals.

Written by S.T. on Aug 31, 2020 after counseling with Annette for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and family conflicts

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

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".
