About me

Hello, I'm so glad that you have taken on this journey of growth and healing. I am excited to be the person who will walk this path with you. My name is Ana and I have been in the helping profession for over 15 years, working with teens and adults.

I use an eclectic approach to build our therapeutic relationship and best meet your needs through active listening and empathy. I draw from a variety of methods to create a tailored approach for each individual and situation, which includes training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Solution Focused Treatment, and Mindfulness. I also incorporate nature walks into practice as part of talk therapy.

I also have extensive experience with trauma, anxiety, depression, mindfulness, and first generation college and career work as well as life transitions.

I am glad you are here and hope to be able to join you on your journey.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Ana Herrera. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

She is patient and understanding. Never interrupts and always listens. Honestly her advice has gotten me through a very challenging situation. She always says the right thing.
