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.
