About me

Hello, Welcome to the Better Help Community. My name is Antoinette and I am a licensed professional counselor in Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Virginia, and Texas. I have been working in the mental health field for over 20 years. I have worked with individuals experiencing a variety of issues including grief and loss, depression, anxiety, marital concerns, women issues, workplace stressors, family conflict, and issues related to military families.

I would describe my approach as goal-oriented, and client-centered. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). Both modalities are hands-on, practical approaches to problem-solving. CBT treatment usually involves efforts to change thinking patterns and or behaviors. The goals are to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind difficult situations, and so change the way one feels. This helps people identify unhelpful ways of thinking as they learn better ways of coping with life's stressors.

It would be my privilege to become a partner in your journey while helping you to figure out your goals. I will provide a supportive and understanding environment that offers a clear direction with specific strategies to assist with your current stressors.

I look forward to helping/serving you!

Antoinette is a caring, compassionate, and empathic person. She always listens to us and provides so much support. My wife and I look forward to talking with her every time and helps use to work through our grief. I can not thank Antoinette enough for her support and guidance.

Antoinette is attentive to my needs. Shortly after beginning our sessions, I had a medical emergency. Throughout this time, she checked in with me, and encouraged me. I am satisfied with her coaching and therapy.
