If you aren’t happy with the life that you have, you have the power to create the life that you want” - Dr.Antionette 

 
Why is Therapy So Important?

Imagine living in a world that tells you to keep it together, don't quit, don't cry, or everything will be all right but in this world, you have very minimal support or you are afraid to share your concerns because of the fear of being judged. Can you imagine that? Neither can I and if you have experienced that this is why therapy is so important. Finding a therapist who will listen to you without judgment, validate your feelings, join your worldview, and provide you with a safe space where you can sort through your most pressing issues. When you find the right therapist for you this is possible. Whether you are looking for individual therapy, couples therapy, or family therapy Dr. Antionette is here to walk alongside you. Dr. Antionette implements effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations.

 SOLUTION FOCUSED THERAPY

SFBT is future-focused, goal-directed, and focuses on solutions, rather than on the problems. The key concept is looking for previous solutions.

How Do I Get Started?

Let's face it. Finding a therapist can be a daunting task. You are probably asking yourself "How will I know which one is the right fit?" Having a great trust relationship with your therapist is important. That's why building a great therapeutic alliance is my number one priority. You might be initially hesitant to seek out help and support for personal matters, and that is okay. I will guide you, and address the best type of therapy for you during your initial consultation. 

The telephone consultation is not a therapy session; the purpose of the call is to get to know your presenting problem and to learn more about my practice.

In the event we decide that we aren't a good fit, referrals to other therapists will be provided.

SELF-CARE TOOLS

Someone wise once said, “Self-care is a continuous process of reflecting on your needs and investing in yourself to be the best version of yourself.” Understand, self-care is a lifestyle and continuous process of understanding your needs and investing in yourself. Eating healthier, exercise, and meditate regularly or taking a day off from work are all high points of reference to self-care. Create small and achievable goals instead of setting lofty expectations.  So what is self-care?  Self-care in essence is the mindful taking of time to pay attention to you in a way that ensures that you are being cared for by you.

Daily Self-Care Checklist

- Eat at least two nourishing meals

Meditation & Mindfulness

The internet is flooded with information about the benefits of mindfulness and meditation and while both words are often used interchangeably, they are not the same. 
Mindfulness is a quality that is associated with many mental health benefits and other positive attributes, such as self-esteem and self-acceptance (Thompson & Waltz, 2007). For these reasons, many therapists see mindful living as a worthwhile goal for their clients. Meditation is an intentional practice, where you focus to increase calmness, concentration, awareness, and emotional balance.
