After my first session with Antoinette Woods I felt very affirmed and confident in going on my mental health journey with Woods. Antoinette, I'm sure, will assist me in strengthening my self care practices and bettering the not as strong aspects of my life.
Antoinette is very patient and understanding in her approach. I have only recently started my sessions with her but am looking forward to continuing my journey to a more positive way of thinking with her! Thank you!
Ms. Woods has a very tender approach to counseling and is a very good listener. She’s very kind and thoughtful and helped me sort out my thoughts when I couldn’t do it by myself.
She just really makes you feel comfortable. Would work with you again for sure!

I haven’t spent much time with her yet, but our first meeting went so well! I really let a lot of of my chest. She was so responsive and welcoming! I’m excited to see where our journey takes us!

So far my experience with Ms. Woods has been amazing. After many tries with other therapists, I’ve finally found one that I feel completely comfortable with and it feels like I’m just talking to a friend. She’s a great listener and I always enjoy our conversations. Love her!
Ms. Woods has provided and amazing experience with counseling. I felt that I could connect with her and my concerns were heard. She is a great listener and helped me towards solutions, not just to vent. I appreciate her for guiding.
My counselor is very helpful and honest with me, she can definitely define the problems I have and it is very helpful to know exactly what problems you have and the ways to solve it. Thank you!
Antoinette is very attentive and has managed to get me to open up and talk about areas of my life that I normally close people off from. She makes me feel comfortable enough to say how I feel without feeling as though she is in any way judging me. So far she has helped me notice and understand attributes about myself and I am looking forward to continue the work we are doing.
I think my councilor is amazing. I liked her from the moment we first talked. She took action the second she heard about my problems.
Mrs. Woods is great. She LISTENS! To understand not respond. I love her so much. She’s helping me A LOT!
