I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in New York that has served the community in a variety of settings with over 10 years of experience. My experience working at a Juvenile Justice Facility, Foster Care, Crisis Line, with victims of Hurricane Sandy and families caring for someone with mental health challenges has helped shape who I am as a clinician. Helping people in the heart of their crisis has been an honor and privilege; it has taught me a lot about resilience and working through pain.
I am also certified as a divorce mediator which has helped me have a greater understanding of the divorce process and working with couples to find their peace. Finding peace in ones life is important to me and being Reiki certified has opened my eyes and heart to spiritual healing. Although my therapeutic style is primarily solution-focused I prefer to listen to each individual and work together towards their goals.
I look forward to helping you achieve your best self!

Antonia is very thoughtful and understanding. She makes me feel comfortable to talk and she always offers very feasible, practical solutions. Very happy so far
I think Antonia is a wonderful counselor. She is quick with her responses daily and very patient. We talked about a lot in two months and she helped me to cope with my overwhelming emotions, to work through some over crowding thoughts, and to reassure me not to be so hard on myself. Over the two months she encouraged me to make a vision board which has been on my wall ever since, I still add to it to this day. I would love to keep in touch with her but since I've been doing much better I'd just be paying for the app without really using it, that's the only downfall. Thank you for being so patient, understanding, and helpful Antonia. I literally think of you often and pray you're doing well! You've been such a blessing. I appreciate you so much
Antonia was very quick to see where my difficulties may be coming from, and in a short space of time I really felt like I was making good progress.
Antonia is great: responsive, understanding, and helpful. She is competent and self-assured at her job, making you feel you deserve to feel this way, too. After a year-long relationship I knew was bad, she was the turning point that got both my heart and mind to realize I needed to leave. She asks questions to help you think and breakthrough with solutions. Best of all, she's nice so I trust her and look forward to talking to her.
She is a great therapist. I have had counseling sessions before, but she was able to identify something that I always kept missing and pointed me to the right direction.
Antonia is caring, responsive, and everything you could want in a text-based therapist. Can't recommend highly enough.
Before talking to Antonia, I felt that I was lost and had no way to deal with my problems. Now I feel like there's someone who actually cares about me and gives me another perspective of the things I have to deal with.
It's been very positive, and talking somethings out have been useful, just reminds me that it is okay, I look forward to more chats and more realisations. Antonia also asks questions, which then can make you reflect (I usually do but I love it when there's more... what's the word, a way for you to think even more and realise if that makes sense?). Plus she seems to understand family well, which works for me too, love it! (have heard of some negative remarks on some counsellors from other people, so I've been wary before deciding to get help).
