About me

I am a Catholic Licensed Psychologist who has been providing counseling services for over 25 years . My work history includes 20 years with District Court, Family Services, with a focus on divorce and custody issues; family mediation, and conflict resolution. I have also worked many years in a private practice clinic, where I saw couples and individuals, addressing a wide variety of mental health issues, and offering a variety of therapy and support services.

If you are seeking a Catholic or Christian Counselor, I am happy to include a faith based dimension in our therapy work together. For others who have no such interest, I am respectful o f all spirituality styles and we will work together accordingly. Whatever your issues or concerns, it would be my pleasure to offer you help and healing in a caring and supportive therapeutic relationship.

Ann is a joy to talk have as a therapist! I always appreciate the support she offers me. She is very adept at being both direct AND kind. I am so grateful for all the ways she’s helped me throughout our time together.

I learned a lot from Ann and she helped me through some difficult things. I will use the tools she reached me always. One thing I wish Better Help would offer is the option to purchase single sessions.

Ann is phenomenal. I feel completely at ease with her and her approach to our sessions. I have tried therapy before and never found one that I really clicked with, but Ann is totally different. I don't feel uncomfortable talking about my faith, my issues, or my struggles.
