Antoinette Peterson, MSW. LMSW

Antoinette Peterson View Specialties

I have over 25 years experience providing therapy to individual, couples and families.  My areas of specialization are based on extensive training and experience in the following areas:
  • Anxiety Therapy
  • Stress Management
  • Depression Treatment
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Treatment
  • Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from Childhood
  • Grief and Loss Counseling
  • Treatment of Binge Eating Disorder
  • Adult Attention Deficit Disorder  

As a therapist my goal is to help you begin to heal so you can find relief from your problems and to feel better so you can lead a happy, satisfying and fully engaged life. 


I combine a compassionate insight oriented approach with a  practical real life application. Clients say this combination works well in helping to improve their emotional state, as well as making lasting 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 not one size fits all but 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 and move forward.  As a solo practitioner I am not constrained by organizational scheduling or time limits of a large clinic or practice.  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.  In addition I am a wife, mother and daughter which helps me bring practicality to my approach along with an understanding that life is full of joy and sorrow. Through these professional and personal experiences I have seen that change is possible, it may take time and work but there is always hope.


If you are struggling, if you are not sure where to turn or you feel like you are hanging on by a string, please call me for an appointment. There is hope.
