Annette Williams

MIACP | Preferred pronouns: She/Her
Annette provides a supportive space for every client filled with compassion and curiosity, allowing people to explore their lives in a way that is safe and rewarding. She brings people to a deeper understanding of their own minds and situations which cause difficulty with mental health. This exploration helps people find balance and well-being in their mental health, and ultimately in their lives.

Annette encourages people to become more reflective and aware of their experiencing, that is, how their needs, responses, thoughts, emotions and body reactions relate to each other. Her skill and guidance in this area brings deeper healing to distressing emotional patterns, allowing growth of wellbeing which is particularly useful in trauma work and long term mental health recovery. This allows for a more integrated way to achieve a mentally healthy life.

Annette is committed to providing a space which is LGBTQIA affirmative.
