Ann has been a game changer for me in helping me navigate and set boundaries, feel comfortable setting those boundaries, and validating my experience. She helps me problem solve and think of creative options. And is such a joy to interact with!

Ann is the therapist I had been looking for. She understands the value of building a strong foundation and going slowly or at your own pace. You can feel when you are in session with Ann that this is her life’s calling. She genuinely cares that each individual she works with feels safe, and assured that the care they are receiving is unique to them and their needs. Ann’s enthusiasm, patience, and compassion come from a core of authenticity that you feel her drawing from every session. Give the process she outlines the time it deserves, and you will find what you came here for.

Kind, straightforward, and matter-of-fact. I've never had an easier time talking.
