Hi and Welcome,
My name is Antoinette Collier, Licensed Professional Counselor, also known as, Coach C. Additionally, I' m an Army Veteran. I have a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am experienced in different treatments including specializing in trauma and substance abuse. Because of my military background, I have gained an appreciation for interaction with people of diverse backgrounds. I prefer Person-centered therapy orientation because I believe a good client-counselor relationship is vital. I do tend to integrate a variety of therapeutic approaches that incorporate cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused techniques. Self-exploration of emotions, thoughts, and behaviors to become self-aware is necessary. I have worked with individuals exhibiting a wide range of diagnoses and challenges. I use psycho-education to incorporate tools that you can utilize to mend disconnections that life can often bring. I will sometimes drive you out your comfort zone, however, I will be compassionate and understanding. My responsibility is to allow you to be heard and understood. The goal is to direct you toward growth so that you can gain clarity and be the best version of yourself.
I look forward to working with you!

Antoinette has the most wonderful way of looking at trauma and discussing issues that are difficult to think about! She is kind and caring but honest and will make you think clearly and carefully about what your thoughts are really saying! I never realised how toxic my inner voice was and I am grateful for her wisdom!
Thank you for all your help. You give me a different perspective and you help me deal with my ptsd and anxiety tremendously. Thank you for being so wonderful!
I had a great experience with Antoinette. She created a relaxed environment but, when I needed to be redirected or challenged in my thinking she did so firmly. And I needed that. She’s kind and personable , but deeply committed to the work of helping clients grow and heal. I’m looking forward to the good that will come from the sessions ahead.
Coach C knows how to balance tact with compassion and humor. She is exactly what I need as I learn how to live my truth and unpackaged what is stopping me from doing so.
Coach C is amazing! Every session I have with her I feel like I am getting better and better. She listens and cares a lot. I am so great full to have Coach C. as my counselor!
Coach C is great at directly addressing your issue with actionable steps to help improve your wellbeing. I feel like I can come to my sessions with any topic and feel seen and heard. I look forward to continuing to work through my anxiety together.
Loving her so far! Excited to get deeper into my past trauma and create an unaffected future
Phenomenal person ...I am a counselor so I would say she is a helper from God
