Antoinette Young

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Pennsylvania. I have been working as a behavioral health therapist for over 15 years. I work with individuals ages 16 and up. I have helped people with a wide range of problems, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, gender identify issues, trauma, abuse, and self-harm. I also have a strong medical background. I have worked with people who have chronic medical conditions, helping them live the best quality of life as possible. In addition, I have a lot of experience working with bariatrics. I have helped those who are considering bariatric surgery, as well as those who have had the surgery and are now having difficulty adjusting to the physical and emotional changes that often occur after surgery.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. My approach combines cognitive behavioral and solution focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plant to meet your unique and specific needs.

It has been an honor and a privilege to assist people through some of the most difficult times of their lives. I enjoy watching people grow and become empowered to make their own life choices and decisions. If you are ready to make some positive changes in your life, I am here to help you through that journey!

I adore working with Antoinette. I have been through a few counselors throughout the years and none have been a good fit before Antoinette. I feel so genuinely seen and heard. It's been a great experience

Antoinette is a very thorough, observant counselor. She really reads and listens to what she is told and takes her time to really assess your thoughts and feelings. She’s all about helping you and it really shows through her support. I’m really glad I chose her as a counselor. I wouldn’t want anybody else.
