Ann has such a warm and caring soul. Talking to her feels like a good hug when you need it most. I’ve never felt more heard, so grateful for her.

Ann Laing has been an absolute angel in my life. I came to her confused on how to get out of unhealthy situations in my life, and now after 4 months of weekly sessions I’m ready to end my therapy journey for now. She was the catalyst I needed to get my life to a place where I’m in control and loving life. Im stronger than ever, more confident in who I am than ever. She is so kind and insightful. She recommended reading material and taught me how to deal with certain situations. I’m so grateful for the time we spent together and the knowledge I now have to move forward and thrive. The support she offered me was exactly what I needed, she’s a wonderful woman and teacher.
