Have been working with Antoinette for over a year and her experience and expertise have really helped me develop a good tool kit for dealing with any crises that occur. Just have had some issues lately with scheduling. But she is excellent. She provides worksheets and information to get you to understand your attachment types and working on boundaries.

Antoinette is an amazing counsellor! I had counselling before and I've always struggled with it as I never felt truly understood. With Antoinette, however, I felt like she quickly understood what I was going through and she helped me better understand myself and find ways to overcome my challenges. I couldn't recommend her enough!

She's extremely kind and introduces me to new concepts in a very simplistic manner that's easy for someone who's unfamiliar with therapy while giving me strategies on how to deal with it
