Antoinette Peterson MSW, LMSW
I have nearly 30 years experience providing counseling to individual, couples and families. Along with specializing in the treatment of anxiety and depression I also have extensive training and experience in grief counseling, the treatment of post traumatic stress disorder and helping adult survivors of childhood abuse heal from unresolved trauma. As a therapist my goal is to help you feel better so you can lead a happy, productive and fully engaged life.
I combine a compassionate insight oriented approach with practical real life application. Clients say this combination works well in helping to improve their emotional state, as well as make changes in their life. In sessions I integrate a number of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy,(CBT) Interpersonal Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Family Systems Therapy. The treatment is guided by your needs and goals. Each person is given the time and care they deserve.
My clinical style is professional yet down to earth, compassionate, interactive and straight forward. This creates a comfortable and safe environment allowing the healing process to begin.
As a solo practitioner I am not constrained by organizational scheduling or time limits. Each person I work with is given the time and care they deserve. My office and waiting area afford privacy and confidentiality.
I received my Masters of Social Work degree from the University of Michigan. Prior to starting New Perspective Counseling I worked in various setting with individuals, couples and families. Over the years I have helped hundreds of people facing almost every imaginable struggle or problem. Through these experiences I have seen that change is possible, it may take time and work but there is always hope.
